Notre Dame Merit-Based Fee Waivers

Postby oldad » Thu Sep 29, 2011 11:15 pm

Does anyone know what kind of lsat/gpa stats typically merit a fee waiver from Notre Dame on CRS?

We'll find out tomorrow, I expect. I have pretty good #s and got fee waivers from most T14s I have applied to so far, but I haven't heard anything from ND. And I even saw them at a law school fair, told them that I have personal/familial reasons for wanting to go there, and gave them my email and mailing addresses.

I found out they don't do solicited fee waivers a couple days ago :(

I wound up receiving one as well...167/3.6/non-urm. I spoke to Melissa Fruscione at a law school fair and she said they only do need-based, which you can apply for on their site, and merit-based, which they send through CRS.

Thanks. They sent me a CRS waiver unsolicited last year so I'm hoping they will decide to send me one for this cycle as well.

Nevermind, I just checked my e-mails and did not receive from Notre Dame, just Duke and UVA.

Im really hoping Notre Dame sends me a fee waiver but Im not sure my numbers are competitive enough (166/3.7)... I did receive a general email from them today, but no fee waiver :( has anyone else gotten one???

I have nearly identical numbers to you and they gave one to me after I talked to a representative at a law school fair. I assume if you send them an e-mail and ask, they'll give you one. If that's the difference between you sending an app and you not sending an app, what do you have to lose?
