Did anyone get an unsolicited waiver from Texas that didn't live in Texas?

Do schools send out all waivers at the same time?

Awww... I want a Texas waiver. I solicited them for a need based waiver and this was their reply: "For consideration for need-based application fee waiver, you must demonstrate financial need, present a competitive academic record, the Law School must have a clear interest in admitting the student, and the limit on fee waivers has not been reached."

Their need-based waiver is not a joke. They want it notarized, the want a statement of why you need it, and they want to know a monthly budget of all your expenses. I'm surprised they didn't ask for a blood sample.

I just got Texas unsolicited:

A preliminary review of your credentials indicates that you are a competitive applicant for The University of Texas School of Law. Although we cannot guarantee admission, we will waive your application fee provided you apply by March 1, 2014, our Regular Decision deadline.



To apply, you can submit an application electronically through LSAC or download a 2014 UT Law application from our website. If you prefer to apply by mail, you must include a copy of this e-mail with your application. Regretfully, we cannot refund your application fee if you have applied to us before receiving this email.



Please contact our Admissions Office at admissions@law.utexas.edu or call (512) 232-1200 if you have questions. We wish you continued success in your academic endeavors and we look forward to receiving your application.

Thought NYU would hit people up today, but I guess nothing so far. App is all ready to go, but 85 bucks?!

Should I wait to submit in hopes of a waiver or say byebye to 85 dollars?

For what it's worth, NYU replied to my solicitation request and noted that they would refund money to anyone who happens to get a waiver after the fact.

I emailed them Thursday.

"If a candidate is invited to apply after already submitting an application, the fee will be refunded."

I guess I will wait until tomorrow, but if I don't even get an acknowledgement of my email I think I'll call. Anyone think this is a bad idea?

Northwestern had a button you could click to request a fee wavier on their website, although I think that ended some time in november. It granted all requests as far as I could tell. I have no idea if they sent any out through CRS.

I got columbia after october scores came out.
