Are fee waivers retroactive

Postby msquaredb » Mon Sep 17, 2012 6:51 pm

I read on TLS that fee waiver are usually granted a week or two after a student receives an LSAT score. What if I apply two days after I get my LSAT score. If a school grants me a fee waiver later will I be reimbursed?

Look on the fee waiver tracker. There is a column for whether the schools will reimburse you

Hmm...I hope not stated turns out to be yes in many cases.

fwiw, Chicago's website said no we don't reimburse and someone successfully gor reimbursed a few days ago. It's not set in stone - can't hurt to just email the school and ask.
