Law School Emails/Offers/Fee Waivers

Postby icedflames » Thu Jul 21, 2011 5:52 pm

I was wondering how many of you guys are getting emails from schools offering fee waivers, soliciting applications, etc.

I actually applied last year, but I decided to take a year off to earn some money and retake the LSAT. During this time last year, I received many of these emails, but there have been none so far this year. Could they be under the impression that I'm already committed from the last cycle? How would I indicate on LSAC that I will be applying again this year?

Go to your LSAC page, click "Edit My Profile" on the left side, then click "CRS" also on the left side, and edit CRS preferences. You can update your expected enrollment year to 2012 there.

Thanks for this I was wondering why I was not getting emails like I did a few years back when I first signed up with LSAC.

Even if you update the year, there will be some schools who still don't send them to you this cycle. If you received a fee waiver from them last year, simply send them an email explaining you got one last year but didn't apply, and ask if you can have your fee waived for this cycle. (Probably best to include your stats.)

For schools you didn't hear from last year, it's still best to ask them for a waiver before paying any application fees. Absolutely cannot hurt, and might save you a good bit of money.
