You got Berkeley? Thought they didn't give one out?

Anybody know why I may be getting passed up on waivers? My gpa is ~3.8 and LSAT is 173. I applied two years ago and got waivers from most of the t14.

This year I solicited in August and have received Duke pt, but otherwise nothing. My biggest issue is Michigan, which said I should get one in email.

Should I follow up with schools?

Have you checked CRS to make sure it's not already on there? Also, have you made sure your app cycle is correct on CRS?

Nothing from them at all so far, not even an email about their apps. Have gotten at least an email or waiver from most everywhere else on my list.

It's possible that your being a re-applicant who has already received fee waivers might be playing a role in it.

I have been getting *some* waivers (and got Duke's pt) so I think everything is up to date. I checked pretty recently for mich. But I'll look again for the others

Possibly, but some of the schools (mostly focused on mich right now) let people request a waiver if they received one last year so I doubt two years ago would make it worse.

Same. I was incessantly refreshing my email for the waiver when I saw your post cause I purposefully held off applying hoping I'd get one, then I signed onto LSAC and saw it was waived. Thanks.

Ah okay. Yeah I don't really have experience with that, just brainstorming.

Just got a waiver from U. Chicago, unsolicited (although I did solicit one a couple weeks ago and was referred to their waiver policy).

Yes - I have so far received an unsolicited waiver from UVA, UPenn, NYU, Michigan, Chicago, Georgetown and Duke in t14. Just need a waiver from Columbia and Cornell for this cycle... :roll:

I just opened their app today and noticed that they don't have a Why Chicago section - I guess I don't need to write one anymore?
