Just read some other posts in this thread. Seems it isn't uncommon - jumped the gun on that. My bad yo.

Anyone have a sense of what kind of $$ people get from schools when they ask you to apply so late in the cycle? Particularly for schools in the T-20 range.

I almost definitely wouldn't go this year, but am pretty curious.

No UCLA, but Lewis & Clark as a consolation prize. :|

These fee waivers are pretty effective. UCLA got me to visit their website last night, which I probably wouldn't have done without a free app

I have gotten zero e-mails from any law schools, period. I'm registered for CRS, but I haven't paid for CAS yet.
My transcripts are in, and I have a June LSAT score in. (ugpa 3.7x & 169)

The only communication I've had from any law schools at all have been a few measly postcards from Savannah Law School.

Is there something I'm missing? Or is it just early?

Anyone ever get a fee waiver without and LSAT score posted? Just based off of transcript and other CRS data?

Interesting. The TTTT's I can understand, but that's fairly surprising that WUSTL would do that.

ya it was weird, I checked and it turns out they sent it June 14th. They were also advertising about some "easy app" thing they have going on where you can apply quicker and simpler, so maybe that's why they were handin' out the waivers.

Ya maybe they were trying to get info on that out there. I could see if you checked the boxes saying you wanted to go to school in that area and your GPA was good that they would offer you the waiver. Was your transcript already in or did you just check the ranges?

I never selected a specific region I wanted to go to and my transcripts weren't in at the time of the e-mail. I had just checked the 3.75+ gpa column on crs.

Assuming you aren't inflating your numbers, you definitely should have gotten something by now. I would go to LSAC and make sure everything is in order. Perhpas check your junk mail folder also? :lol:

In OP you should make a list, for example

UCLA
Georgetown
WUSTL
Princeton
etc.

It's easier to read than how you have it now.
