Have you submitted your transcripts to CAS? Even if you have, if you have foreign grades which don't get you a LSDAS GPA, it's possible that you aren't turning up in some schools' CRS searches.

eta: i havent gotten chic, probably because my gpa is relatively poor for them or something, but i know a lot of others have since score release

eta2: viewtopic.php?f=2&t=212345 try this thread


LSAC does not have my transcript/GPA information but I received a 175 from October. Will I only receive waivers if my transcript is available? Do they send waivers at different times?

Could it be that you don't have CRS on? Would that prevent them from seeing your score?

Yes, they do tend to go out in different batches.

And yes, be sure you have CRS enabled.

I got Duke months ago with a 167.

Since my 174 came out on Monday, I've gotten Chicago and haven't gotten NYU. I emailed NYU and they told me that they don't give solicited fee waivers, and if my numbers get one they will email me. Have a good GPA.

I have a sense that NYU gave waivers to people in a certain range of like 167-172 or 173. I haven't heard of any 174 or above waivers. Maybe I'm totally off, I haven't investigated this much, but maybe they are thinking "welllll if they really want to go here they will be okay paying it"?... as a sort of YP thing? No idea at all.

I hadn't had CRS on, hence no waivers. Just turned it on. Anyone think that will affect my ability to get waivers? Got a 167, btw.

I got NYU with >174, for what it's worth.

+1. 174, I got NYU and Chicago unsolicited this week but no Duke. Columbia basically told me the same thing NYU told you.

I got NYU with a 180, but no Chicago-I have no idea what the pattern is. My SO didn't get NYU with a 172, but one of his transcripts isn't processed yet, which is probably why.

im still MAF i didnt get a chi waiver, but i feel slightly better now that i know that you didnt either ;)


Thats so weird...maybe theyre just trying to make me apply and then reject. I got chi waiver with 166.

I got Duke PT last Friday with a 173, but haven't heard from NYU or Chicago yet. Could be a GPA thing (3.6).
