Yep. The subject line said "University of Wisconsin Law School Fee Waiver Offer" and then there was an asterisk at the bottoming noting that the fee waiver is only good through 11/22.

Just got Penn through CRS - no email, but I checked for a hidden one and saw it on the checkout screen. So if you have been waiting on Penn it might be a good time to check... :)

Seriously? I solicited and am pretty far above their numbers, and they said they do not give merit waivers - period. That's pretty cool...

Actually, yes. Vandy and Michigan. Vandy is still just a maybe (where before it had been a no way jose), but Michigan's a definite now.


I only applied to Duke after the priority track w/ waiver. Their MBA is fairly strong to so it opened me to that school as a possibility.

Penn unsolicited here too. I'm pleasantly surprised since I'm below their LSAT median -- although I am above the 75% re: GPA.

Just got Penn too. :D

Do you all think the criterion was just LSAT > 2016 median?

Waiting on Cornell and NYU. Do they come in batches after the October LSAT? If I haven't gotten them yet, is it time to just ask?
