I haven't received any fee waivers yet even though my numbers should be fairly competitive at most t-14 schools. I was wondering if this might have something to do with the fact that I took the LSAT early and didn't register for CRS until now? Is it possible that some schools might give me an unsolicited waiver, or should I start asking the schools I'm interested in for waivers? I'm also planning on submitting my apps in mid september so I wasn't sure if unsolicited fee waivers would even come in by then for most schools? Thanks!
I'm in the same boat as you. It all has to do with when schools look through the CRS. I didn't register in time for the big wave of fee waivers (though I've recently gotten a few others), so you just have to wait until they do another sweep. I don't know when they do that, though. I've heard on TLS that a lot of schools send them out at the beginning of September, so I'd just wait until you're closer to submission before worrying about contacting them.
