I didn't get love from Cornell/NU merit-wise either. Got a need-based from Cornell pretty easily though (you just send in a finaid award letter from undergrad and if its large enough you'll get it) and just submitted the NU need-based one. I'm anticipating they'll approve it.
On another note, here's the emails I got from Columbia and Duke today regarding fee waivers and soliciting priority track respectively.

Thank you for your continued interest in Columbia Law School.
Unfortunately, starting this admissions cycle, our office will no longer offer need-based fee waivers. We provide application fee waivers to those prospective applicants who have received a fee waiver through LSAC. The process is very similar to ours. To learn more about LSAC fee waivers please visit http://www.lsac.org

I've set things up with LSAC so that your application fee will be waived automatically when you submit your materials via LSAC. We have to limit the number of people we invite to participate in the Priority Track program (I'm sure you can imagine that it is very time- and labor-intensive!) so I can't guarantee a ten-day turnaround, but we'll do our best to get you a decision as quickly as we can.
Please let me know if you have other questions. I look forward to reviewing your application!
So my PT solicit failed but it seems he might still try and review my app quickly when I submit it (I've been emailing back and forth with him).
