Fee Waivers from school out of my league...

Postby jcm043 » Fri Dec 07, 2012 6:49 pm

I received a fee waiver from Alabama today. Sadly, I do not have the GPA to get into bama. I have the other two Alabama law schools on my list in LSAC. Do they send these fee waivers to booster their # of applicants? I highly doubt they think I have a chance....

Yes, they want as many people to apply to be able to reject more people. Exclusivity is one of the metrics used in the rankings.

It's worth .025 (2.5%) of their score :lol: It's completely meaningless for them to attempt to game that.
