You can't submit your applications without your LSAC GPA anyways, and my understanding is that getting a response to a fee waiver solicitation doesn't usually take more than a day or two. So I don't really see the point.

Did anyone get a waiver e-mail from Columbia or are they all hidden? And if you got a hidden one, when did you get it?

I got most of my waivers before my transcript was processed. I did check the 3.75+ GPA if that makes a difference. I didn't solicit though until I got my LSDAS GPA, but I guess you can just put your cumulative GPA.

Cornell unsolicited. The fee waiver was in a P.S. at the bottom. Way to toy with me Cornell and think you were just "inviting me to apply" and not waiving the fee :| Also UVA unsolicited today!

That leaves me without Michigan and Northwestern. Michigan is allegedly going to be snail mail? What about NU? ETA: Just found the big purple button I had somehow missed before.

Northwestern is offering fee waivers to ALL applicants who request one before November 28. Click the big "JD Fee Waiver" Button on the following web page, and have a good day:

SCOOBS we have the same score. And BoM we have almost the same score. I got Cornell today.

How odd.
