Got Georgetown, UCLA, and Columbia with my 168, and UVA sent one after my 173. I've got a ton from lower ranked schools as well. Any of you guys got anything from Chicago/Penn?


Got Chicago. Didn't get UCLA. Still waiting for Penn.

Are you guys getting your waivers from October LSAT scores? I got a 173 in Oct and I haven't gotten any from T14 schools.

Was Vandy solicited? I've been waiting for one for a long time - way above their numbers but I really like the school. When I tried soliciting they told me they only send merit waivers through CRS.

Yeah my only LSAT is from October and over the last week or so the ones I received from T14 so far have been: Columbia, NYU, and Duke. Also from just outside the T14 (and important to me as a So Cal resident) I got UCLA/USC.

Unsolicited from Columbia, Vandy, NYU and Duke. The first two came today.

I'd really like a waiver for Cornell.

This is confusing because as noted the Columbia email sounds as if they are sending them out to people above a certain LSAT score. Just curious is your GPA below their 25th? I've been trying to to see if GPA is playing into fee waivers


I've got GPA/LSAT both >75th and haven't gotten Columbia. My guess is that at a certain point it's just luck: they select a random subset of those above certain stats to give waivers too. (Although I haven't checked for a hidden waiver yet, so it's possible I've got that.)

I got one from Penn via email sometime in August, then they sent a packet in the mail a couple weeks ago with another fee waiver offer. Cornell came mid-October in the mail.

Got all the waivers I wanted/would consider applying to :)

HYS: Obviously nothing but will apply anyways.
Columbia: Hidden
Chicago: unsolicited e-mail two days ago
NYU: unsolicited e-mail at least a month ago
Penn:unsolicited e-mail at least a month ago
UVA: solicited after hearing about them a month ago. unsolicited a few days ago
Michigan: Snail-mail waiver
Duke: unsolicited PT invite + waiver
Berkeley: Nothing, guess I won't be applying here lol.

UCLA + USC: Unsolicited

Above both 75ths everywhere but HY

edit: FWIW I also got northwestern(purple button solicited) and Cornell unsolicited but likely won't be applying to either of them. Don't badger me about it plz

I'm pretty sure Berkeley doesn't give out merit-based fee waivers. At least I recall reading that on their website.
