Could I get Waivers?

Postby Pancakes12 » Thu Jul 11, 2013 2:07 pm

I have a 4.03 LSDAS GPA and 176 LSAT. I want to apply to most of the T-14, but apps are so expensive! If I send emails to admissions offices asking for waivers, can I expect to received them from the T-14? (Besides HYS, who I hear doesn't give out merit-based waivers).

Does anyone have experience asking for waivers from the T-14? Is there a better time to ask?

You should get unsolicited waivers from most of the T-14 (some may be hidden, meaning when you go to apply your application fee will be waived without the school notifying you).

In my experience, you should wait until like September to ask for waivers. I got waivers at several T-14 with a much lower GPA and LSAT.
