I got the Columbia invitation. I was pretty surprised. 3.25/173. Currently living in Germany. But it's not a waiver. I'm guessing it was based on LSAT.

Interesting - so I guess it wasn't filtered geographically. If it's only based on LSAT #s, I'd expect a lot more people received it as well. Has anyone attended one of these before? I'm wondering what to expect.

Yes, I did too. I also live in NY. FWIW, 3.8x, 17x. Anyone else get it?


Is that a waiver though? I think ITT we wre conflating waivers with junk mail.


No, not a waiver. Apologies - I wasn't sure where else to put it..

Ugh, didn't get it :( Live in NY, 3.9X and 17X. Disappointing


That's strange, though I think you'll be fine at CLS with your numbers.

I got it last year, with non CLS #s. So it likely means nothing.

It's been a while since I got a decent/semi-decent fee waiver. Feelin' kinda blue.

Your Lee Van Cleave tar is 180. I haven't gotten a waiver for a place I am applying to since UCLA.

I was getting fee waivers from Wash. U. in STL last app season (through LSAC) and I hadn't even taken the LSAT. Speaks to the recent applicant pools, I suppose.

wtf? trolling or for real? if for real, that's intense!

I have only received fee waivers for this current cycle from TTT like MC. nobody loves me.


I did get waivers from both...but I got them in 2012 after my Oct '11 LSAT. Idk if I'd be able to get them to work for this cycle.

Historically speaking, which of the T14 provide application waivers?

Anyone have an opinion on when to start sending emails begging for waivers?

I haven't been getting any of these :(. Maybe it's because my transcript isn't in yet? My numbers are pretty good

edit: I have gotten e-mails from TTTs, not sure if they were waivers.
