Wow...in addition to Emory, UGA starts a ED program...they had a hit because of reduced applicants and start to lock someone in to have a better ranking :lol:
Not adding UGA ED program since its not in the T35.

I was informed by my brother that I got an unsolicited from George Mason via snail mail.

[Edit]My bad, UGA somehow has been missing this entire time and no one noticed! Adding ALL the UGA info now.

Are you talking about Wash U (WUSTL)? I'm assuming that you're not talking about UW (the one in Seattle) giving indication that they're free this year as well? If WUSTL, it's on the sheet already. If UW... great news!

U Wash still has its application fee according to its website: http://www.law.washington.edu/Admission ... Procedures

Fun Fact: This spreadsheet has gotten so massive that it takes 5 seconds for a keystroke to register. I'm going to try and set up a website for this over the next month or two (once I teach myself how to set up and run a website for this purpose). I'm thinking it needs a silly name though.

If you choose to do so, I'd be willing to throw together the next 15 or so ranked schools, using the same format you have. It would probably slow the sheet too much to add in g-docs, but might be a nice addition to a website. I've actually done most of the work for a number of 35-60 schools on sheet I've customized using yours as a starter. Anyhow, if your interested, let me know and I'll start with the next 15 and then see how quickly I tire of it.

I asked this question a few weeks ago and was told late August / early September. It's now early September so hopefully any day now.

Dear specialsnowflake,

Fee Waiver offered at Appalachian School of Law for Early Applicants. APPLY NOW!



In an effort to help you save money, the Appalachian School of Law is eliminating its $60 application fee until January 14, 2013. The waiver applies to 2013 applicants only. To chat with an admissions counselor or to stay updated with the most recent information, search for “Appalachian School of Law Admissions and Financial Aid” and join our Facebook group. You may also contact the Admissions Office by e-mailing admissions@asl.edu or call 276-244-1203.



Visit our web page at : http://www.asl.edu/Admissions.html and request and ASL information packet at http://www.asl.edu/Admissions/Request-a-Packet.html



You're interested in law school, but you also want a law school that is interested in you! ASL provides the personal touch where you are an individual known by name by your professors, not an anonymous face in a sea of new students.



Sincerely,

Taylor Burgess

Admissions Office
Appalachian School of Law

Not sure if you're bothering to add these since they are lower ranked, but I asked for merit-based waivers from the following schools and was told that they only offer need-based waivers from LSAC

UNC Chapel Hill
Dear XXXXXXX:

Thank you for your continued interest in the University of North Carolina School of Law at Chapel Hill.

We offer application fee waivers for those applicants financial hardship only. For more information pertaining to how to apply for an application fee waiver please visit this provided link here, http://www.law.unc.edu/admissions/applynow/default.aspx.

If you have additional inquires do let me know and feel free to directly contact me.

Yours truly,
/Jennifer R. Kott
Director of Admissions


UC Hastings
Hello XXXXXXX, We are delighted that you are considering UC Hastings College of the Law for your legal education.

You can find information regarding applying and fee waivers and much more information at our website http://www.uchastings.edu at --LinkRemoved-- under our application FAQ’s. We do not offer merit based or community service based fee waivers. We do accept need based fee waivers that are submitted to and approved in advance by LSAC.
You must apply for this need based fee waiver through LSAC directly before you submit your application for admission. Once your fee waiver is approved by LSAC you can apply online and it is granted automatically, no code is required.. If you should apply online before the fee waiver is approved and use your credit card, we are unable to grant refunds.

Best Regards, Christian Lehrer, Admissions Coordinator

I emailed them requesting a refund after I got my waiver yesterday (also turned in my app saturday). I haven't heard from them yet. Not holding my breath.

don't bother:

Dear XXXXXXX,

Thank you for your inquiry regarding application fee waivers. Vanderbilt offers merit and need-based waivers. Merit-based fee waivers are granted through the LSAC Candidate Referral Service (CRS) searches, and when participating in CRS, your information may come available to us. Please be sure that you have indicated expected Enrollment for Fall 2013. We will notify you by email if a LSAC merit-based fee waiver has been granted, and your electronic application fee will be waived automatically when applying. Our fee waiver invitations sometimes cross in transit with applications received, and if this occurs, your application fee will be refunded. Please let us know if you have chosen not to participate in CRS.

For those applicants who have been granted a need-based fee waiver by the Law School Admission Council (LSAC), Vanderbilt has approved an electronic application fee waiver. When requesting a need-based fee waiver directly to Vanderbilt, please provide your LSAC account number, a letter explaining your financial situation and include documentation to demonstrate your need. Documentation may include current financial aid award notices from your educational institution or income tax records.

Thank you for your interest in Vanderbilt University Law School. We look forward to working with you during the application process.



Sincerely,


Kristy Maloy

Yeah I got that a month ago when I asked. I've been signed up with CRS and gotten unsolicited from plenty of schools. Basically I'm impatient and prideful.
