How to get an application fee waiver?

Postby Steve2207 » Thu Nov 29, 2012 10:47 pm

I sent an email to the admissions department of a school asking how to apply for an application fee waiver, and they aren’t responding. Is there some other way that I should be going about this? Thanks.

It does not say anything on their website about how to request a fee waiver.

The way you go about it is to e-mail them and ask for one. Include your full name, LSAC account number, your LSDAS GPA, your LSAT score, and anything else you think might be helpful. Here's what I sent:

Uncharacteristically bubbly e-mail North wrote:Good morning!

My name is [Uncharacteristically bubbly e-mail North]. I very interested in applying for a seat in the [TTT] School of Law's class of 2016. Unfortunately, I have found the law school application process to be financially burdensome. In hopes that I might qualify for an application fee waiver, I would like to submit the following information for your consideration:

    LSAC Account Number: LXXXXXXX
    Oct. 2012 LSAT Score: 1XX
    LSDAS GPA: X.XX
    FAFSA EFC Determination (most recent): XXXXX

I have attached a copy of my most recent FAFSA Electronic Student Aid Report. If any other information would be helpful, please do not hesitate to let me know -- I'll get it to you immediately!


Thank you so much for taking the time to read this,
[Uncharacteristically bubbly e-mail North]


They probably haven't responded because you sent a weird e-mail asking how to ask for the fee waiver that they're used to being asked for. Either that or they're slow. BC took almost two years to get back with one.

Search TLS first next time, this question has been asked and answered.

Your right, I should have done some searching here at TLS before asking that, I apologize. Incidentally, I did get an e-mail from them this afternoon granting me the fee waiver; I suppose they were just busy.

BTW, did it really take two years for you to get a fee waiver from Boston?

Nah it was like a week. Felt like two years after the wait for October scores.

I hear you bro, the October wait was a nightmare! To make up for it though, I got an e-mail from my safety school today as well (a TTT), they said they will be making a decision Monday morning and will call me and let me know what they decide. I just sent the application Tuesday, talk about a priority decision!
