Columbia hidden waiver today

Still holding out for Cornell and Berkeley. I assume that HYS don't send out fee waivers?

Ah. Well, I appreciate you telling me that! Sounds like Cornell is the last one I am waiting on then.

Do waivers go out like hotcakes every year? I can't be the only sub-170s scorer getting them in here.

Doesn't Michigan do snail mail with handwritten notes? I wouldn't expect anything from them until next week.

Thanks. I wasn't too sure how they did them. I'll just wait then.

It doesn't seem like this is understood, but you can get reimbursed if a school offers you a waiver after you have applied. I've heard this anecdotally, and Cornell said they would do so explicitly when I e-mailed them about a fee waiver.

This is not always true; I've seen some schools explicitly say they don't give refunds. Try for the refund, but don't count on it.

WHAT DOES THIS ALL MEAN? lol

I feel so wanted! Anyways, anyone hear from university of Texas or University of Houston?


Got a Texas waiver, the text of the email said it was because I'm a resident. Hope that helps.

I have a 3.8 and a 167. Any reason I wouldn't have received any unsolicited fee waivers? Not high enough on the LSAT?

Should get some unsolicited with that score. Have you paid for and completed the CRS?

Also, those with Chicago waivers, what are your scores like? I got a Columbia hidden but no email for Chicago.

Some are e-mail some are hidden. Look up hidden waivers on this forum to find out how to see them. E-mail would be going to the same place you got our lsat score sent.

I think I figured out the issue. I wasn't registered for CRS.

Not sure if it's been discussed upthread, but Leiter says "many schools inflate their 'selectivity' by giving fee waivers to applicants who have no chance of getting in." You would have gotten them even without that trick b/c your numbers are high, but I guess the claim is that some T14 schools send out waivers below their medians just to boost their denial rate.

Are there any other fee waivers you can pick up off of their website, like Northwestern?
