Does anyone know where the 2013-2014 application spreadsheet is? Was it gonna be in a new thread? I know someone new was going to be updating it.

Texas only gives out merit waivers through CRS. I got this response from them:

Hello,

The only fee waiver an applicant can apply for is a need-based waiver. UT Law offers a limited number of merit-based waivers through LSAC’s CRS Program. You cannot apply or request a merit-based waiver. To ensure consideration, you need to register with CRS.

U Mich? I just solicited one not too long ago. I got one last cycle, too, unsolicited.

What are your numbers?

Did they send you a code? I just got an email saying that if you qualify for a merit waiver, it will be applied automatically through LSAC (hidden waiver?)

"Dear XXXXXXX,

Please allow me to respond on behalf of Dean Zearfoss and to thank you for your interest in Michigan Law.  We offer merit-based fee waivers through LSAC's Candidate Referral Service.  It does appear that you would qualify, so, if you are registered for that service, the waiver will appear automatically in your LSAC account.



Please let me know if you have any questions. We look forward to hearing from you.




Regards,"

U Mich just sent me that. 3/14 of the t14 so far. Next up, duke :B

Got the same response from Michigan (with them saying I'll probably have a hidden waiver when I go to apply). UCLA granted my a fee waiver after emailing them. Duke said they forwarded my email to their Director of Admissions, haven't heard back from them yet.

Penn told me they don't do individual fee waiver requests and that if I'm eligible, they'll find me in crs.

I'm not sure if you're interested in need-based waivers but I just solicited one from UVA, and I've sent out a ton of emails to the other schools I want to apply to. If there is interest, I'll post the outcomes of this endeavor (or you can PM me).

No, they didn't mention it. I didn't ask, though. It's possible they're sending them out later this week, because here was the message:

Dear XXXX,

Thanks for writing -- I appreciate your interest in Duke Law School! You should hear from us more formally later in the week, but I'll let you know now that we'll be happy to waive your application fee. Watch for our e-mail (and you may need to check your spam folder -- sometimes Gmail is a little over-protective...) and let me know if you have any other questions about the application process or the law school in general.

Regards,
Mark Hill
