I know it's been said before, but make sure to check your spam folders! The Duke one was sitting in mine for whatever reason.

Ignorant question:
Does one get waivers when one registers for CRS on LSAC?

That is one way to get them! You can also solicit individual schools.

I know they don't give out waivers and my heart still started racing until I read it.


Damn, I didn't get that one. Got one from their MBA program in the School of Management hahahaha.



Also got the Duke Priority Track w/ Waiver email today!

Got BC waiver today.

Anybody know what's the deal with Minnesota?
They denied my solicitation "CRS only" style.
I'm just confused because I am at or above their 2013 75ths and it seems like some have gotten unsolicited waivers already.
What stats do you need exactly?

You're probably in YP territory. They probably want someone between median and 75th. Then again, what the hell do I know.

Hmm I guess that could be it.

If they did use a CRS range that I am above, it seems silly to deny a solicitation though, since I went out of my way to indicate interest in applying.

I got the same response...and I even tried to pull the alum card. Granted, I'm not above their 75th's. But apparently my co-worker successfully solicited one in the last week or so (URM, 161/3.6 or 3.7).

I really want to apply there, but I can't justify $100 on an app when 12/13 of my other top choices gladly gave me fee waivers, including several of Minny's peer schools. I may just bug them again with a "give me a fee waiver or there's no way in hell I'm applying" e-mail.

Also, BC and Maine today.

Anyone with free time/post October LSAT hangover want to assemble a Google doc spreadsheet that has all this info in one place?
It could have

School| Solicited/Unsolicited |If solicited, how?| Means of Contact| Date| (LSAT/GPA if anyone is willing to share)


Any takers?
