dont forget to search/FAQ before you ask...
viewtopic.php?f=2&t=159780
for this year and from the general FAQ:

Basics & list:
viewtopic.php?f=2&t=159780

Q: Do they mean I have a better shot?
No. They just want to increase # of applicants so they can reject more people.

Q: How do you get them?
CRS on LSAC. Look around. You can also e-mail and ask for them. If you do, basic form:

Hello,

I am really interested in applying to XXX Law School and am writing to ask if could be considered for a merit-based fee waiver. My LSAT is 1XX, GPA is X.XX, and my LSAC # is #######.

Thanks,
Eager Applicant

What about need-based waivers?
Eugenie says that it's apparently easier than getting one through LSAC to go directly to the schools (though some only honor LSAC):
"I emailed 10 schools with a basic request (no financial details). 8 replied within 2 days saying, "Here you go!" 2 asked for pretty basic financial info, and I'm waiting to hear. I just saved about $700!"

Q: I took the LSAT in previous cycles or am re-applying and am not receiving them, what should I do?
Last updated for the 2010-2011 cycle.
This thread has more info: viewtopic.php?f=2&t=127020
Wait until after the CRS wave goes out(which you can see in the thread linked) and e-mail politely and ask. So far this cycle(08/26/2010).
