Per their website, Illinois seems to be free for everyone.

UCLA, SMU, and Illinois (x2).

Though, Illinois doesn't really count and I had already solicited a waiver from SMU.

I took an LSAT 2 years ago as well but havent gotten anything. How do you turn CRS 'on'? Did you get any waivers back when you took the LSAT?

Log in to the LSAC site, hover over the "My Account" tab at the top, then hover over "Profile" and select "Candidate Referral Service." On the question that says "Release my information to LSAC-member law schools, other programs, and/or other eligible organizations" make sure your answer is yes and set "Expected law school enrollment year" to 2014.

Hope that helps!

So far:

Penn
Virginia
Michigan (via snail mail, but nice hand-written note!)
Duke (priority track)
UCLA (today)
Vanderbilt (August)

...and some others I do not care for (Seton Hall, Florida Coastal, etc.)

I also would like to know if anyone had any luck getting waivers from any of CCN? They do give out fee waivers, right?

No luck from CCN.

Really growing impatient with waiting for fee waivers. I submitted apps yesterday

i'd never bothered turning it on before now, so nope no waivers previously.

(see oxie's response above for instructions!)

Almost pooped my pants when I got an email from Columbia today --- it was just inviting me to visit their booth at my alma's law school fair :(

You should go and request a waiver in person. Bring a copy of your transcript and LSAT score report :lol:

Are fee waivers from CCN a forsure thing? Just a matter of time? Seems like they've always offered them in years past.

I definitely would except I'm 3 hours away from my undergrad school. 6 hour roundtrip drive for a fee waiver might not represent sound economic thinking on my part.
BUT DAMN IT, I WANT THAT SWEET, SWEET COLUMBIA WAIVER GOODNESS.
