LSAC FEE WAIVER

Postby andreasmommy » Wed Aug 08, 2012 5:50 pm

I sent in my fee waiver, but I was waiting to hear back from the IRS to send me a non-filing confirmation for my taxes (so I sent it in late). I just saw my LSAC account and it said that the fee waiver has not been received and has been canceled and I will be charged.

Anyone else have a similar issue? Or advice?

Hm, bummer about getting that IRS form late. I'm waiting for mine right now, and that shit had better come in quickly because I think the 45 days period that they gave me is going to be up by the end of this month.

As for your situation, I don't think it's too dire--just pay the LSAC fees that they ask of you (probably just CAS, right?) and then apply for fee waivers at the schools individually. No big deal unless you're strapped for a hundred bucks or so.

I spoke with LSAC and they were completely understanding. They said that if you go over the 45 days, that once they receive your papers they will review them and either deny or accept your request (regardless if they put a hold on your account, or if they canceled the fee waiver). In the mean time they said any student can get reimbursed for any fees, if they send in the required documents (only if accepted). So if you need to pay the LSAT fee, and CAS fee before a deadline, then they can/will reimburse you (only if accepted).
