DID WUSTL ever sort out their application fee issue?

Unsolicited Columbia waiver. Took the June LSAT, not October's. Missed the waiver the first time around. LSAT: 168, GPA: high 3.9s

Ahh jealous!! I've been waiting for one :( What are your numbers?


172/3.9. I hope you get one soon!

Just got one from BC also, unsolicited.


How weird, I still haven't gotten one and my numbers are almost exactly the same (173/3.9). Does anyone think it's worth requesting a fee waiver from NYU?

It still says that they're charging it in the application, but my LSAC fee waiver went through successfully, so I guess it's someone else's problem now 8)

Yeah, but they said at the beginning of the cycle that they were waiving fees this year, but then inexplicably pulled the rug out on that.

Ugh, I just requested a fee waiver from NYU and they said they don't provide them on request (only through CRS).

DOES THIS MEAN LS STATUS CHECK WILL WORK AGAIN

are you guys using the desktop one from lsstatuscheck.com or the iPhone app? I tried both (my desktop is a Mac) and they aren't working for me. The Connor Lynch one on my iPhone keeps saying "Check user id/password" for every school

The iphone one has been busted for a long time. I use the desktop version.

Thanks. Even the desktop one won't work for me. I downloaded the OSX version, open up the download, click on the BETA icon, and it gives me this long error message. I guess I'll try the PC version on my work computer later. Are you on a PC?

It works on my Mac. Just drag the program to Applications, then run it. I had to click the "Reinstall Database" button on the options tab within the app, but after that it works like a charm.

Thanks. Yeah I don't think it downloaded correctly on my Mac the 1st time, so now everytime I delete it and re-download it doesn't actually 're-install' bc of how Macs don't really uninstall programs. I'm using it on my PC at work now and it works perfectly.

What I did was email all of the schools before I took the LSAT requesting information. I got some of the fee waivers that way. Then I asked about my crummy financial situation and got some more that way. For the remaining schools I sent my gpa/lsat score and in the end 95% of the schools I applied to were willing to send a waiver EXCEPT 5 of them. I still had to pay all of the LSUC report fees since my lsac waiver was denied (about $750 for those) and am now flat broke regardless.

Fee waiver list for me:
john marshall atlanta (mobile app has no fee)
albany (fee waiver granted via email)
ave maria florida (fee waiver granted via email)
Barry florida (no fee)
Brooklyn (no fee)
Suny buffalo (fee waiver granted via email)
cuny (does not offer ANY fee waivers. Only Lsac fee waiver)
campbell (fee waiver granted via email)
cleveland john marshall (fee waiver granted via email)
dayton (no fee)
FIU florida (fee waiver granted via email)

This made me lol. Didn't know you could do that. Might as well type a 180 in the LSAT score section of the app. If questioned, say you fat-fingered it. YOLO

Just so you guys are aware, the est. COA seems to be consistently wrong in this spreadsheet. For example, According to UChi's own webpage, the total budget is $70,935 per year. Times three that's $212,805 total cost of attendance, not the $185,967 the spreadsheet indicates. I think the problem is shadowofjazz only multiplied the cost of living by two, not three (he says it's $40k not $60k. I've found similar issues with Duke and Penn's COA; again, the problem seems to be only multiplying COL by two. The other possibility is that schools updated the budgets and the spreadsheet is just out of date, although the tuition figure (as opposed to the COL estimate) on the spreadsheet tends to be pretty accurate.

But this is a pretty small issue, and this spreadsheet has been an invaluable tool for me :)

NB: Not all schools are off. Columbia, for example, estimates total COA to be $79,950 per year, for a three-year total of $239,850, not much different from the spreadsheet's $235,290.

All the tuition numbers are based on the 2011-2012 school year because note very school had the 2012-2013 numbers out when I made the spreadsheet.

1. I took Tuition and COA values from the ABA sheets, not from the school's websites. I figured that would be the most accurate number since some school's had not posted updated tuition numbers for 2012-2013 when I made that tab.
2. The numbers on the school's website were likely updated recently for the ones that are off (meaning they have 2012-2013 numbers now)
3. All COA numbers are multiplied by 3.
4. My numbers also do not include certain loan allowances and loan fees and other estimated costs (transportation and such). I have taken only tuition and only cost of living (rent). Nothing more, nothing less.

I can't find tab 7? Looking for ASW info for schools I think I'll get into so I can see what overlaps & what days to request off. Is it there?

I removed it because no one else messaged me ASW info. it's pointless if all it had is one school.

Is there any reason to stay signed up to the CRS after you've applied and received fee waivers from all of the schools you want? I keep getting emails from schools that I'm not interested in. Does the CRS have anything to do with anything after you are done applying? Thanks!

I got a 10$ amazon gift card for doing some law school marketing survey for a PR firm (probably hired by one of the TTT's).
