Should I register for CRS?

Postby nothingtosee » Mon Aug 12, 2013 11:24 am

Could I get fee waivers from T14's, or am I just gonna get spammed by TTT's?

I got an e-mail from JS of HLS asking me to 'take a closer look' at Harvard. Take that as you will lol. So far I haven't actually received any useful waivers and my numbers are pretty competitive. I will be soliciting waivers in the next few weeks though.

Yes, you could get fee waivers from T14s (depending on your stats and the law schools' needs), although a good chunk of your emails will in fact be TTT spam.

Would starting a new gmail account just for LSAC be a poor decision?

I've registered for the CRS with some pretty good numbers (178/3.86), but have not received a single email. I only registered like a week ago. I have not yet completed my Fee Waiver application for LSAC. Is this necessary for the merit waivers as well?

No, it's not required for the merit waivers that come from the schools. I've heard getting the LSAC fee waiver is near impossible- good luck.

It is. I know a bit about the fee waiver process, PM if you have questions OP (or whoever wants). It is much easier to gain fee waivers by soliciting individual schools, for they have much more latitude.

a lot of the fee waivers are given after October LSAT results come out. For reference, I got all of the T14 except Chicago, GULC, and Northwestern (HYS do not give fee waivers)
