Got Duke last week...also waiting on Cornell.


I think I missed the first batch by having CRS turned off... assuming I would have got one.

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


Can't be, I'm below.


Hmmm, I wonder how the decide then.

Also still waiting on Cornell…


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?


I get the sense that each school has a day when they send them. I got NYU last week. Might wanna holla at them.

Some schools send you emails letting you know they gave you a hidden waiver, but otherwise, nope.

Got an "invitation to apply for a need-based fee waiver" from Yale as a part of their dandy packet. Does that count?

Chicago sent me an invitation to apply via e-mail, but nothing mentioning a waiver. That's a first.

This was U of Chicago and not John Marshall Law School? I got a similar email that had Chicago in the title, but it turned out being from JM.

Mooom, I just got into Chicago! Hmmm. I guess they changed their Law School's Name to "John Marshall."

That's cool.

Anyone know if there is a cap on how many waivers schools send? I guess it's school by school.

Also, is there research on the percentage of admissions for those who received waivers? I feel that this question about waivers can be resolved relatively quickly if the appropriate research was done.

Sorry -- broken record I know. But I think it's credited that schools send out not just to YP, but also to boost their selectivity numbers by boosting their denials (and therefore their USNWR score).

apparently they don't even want to YP me. Penn makes me feel so unwanted.
