Where on the application do you see hidden fee waivers if you have one?

Could be either of two ways:
1) Apply > Applications > Active > View. Under "Step Three" it will say "Application Waived" (if waived) or "Application $X" (if not waived).

2) viewtopic.php?t=129078

More than decent stats - nothing from NYU and I took the LSAT a long time ago.

Took September. Only t14 I've gotten yet is Penn. Then again, only added a self-reported GPA fairly recently so that might play a role.

+1. Will also add that I solicited a fee waiver from UCLA this afternoon (roughy 3pm EDT) and just received a reply containing a fee waiver code. Don't be afraid to ask!


What are y'all's stats?

Waivers do not indicate a higher admission chance right.....?

3.86, 169, not URM

So far I have waivers from UCLA, William & Mary, Georgetown, Penn, Vandy, Emory, and Duke (plus priority track from duke).

MA 3.8 167 AmeriCorps

Unsolicited: Chicago, NYU, Penn, Duke, Georgetown, Vanderbilt, UCLA, Notre Dam, Emory, and various TT/TTT schools

I am surprised I received waivers from some of those schools considering my average numbers.
Solicited: UT Austin

I'm waiting to hear back from Michigan and Berkely. :|

Edit: I just checked my Northwestern Pritzker app on LSAC. My fee is not waived. :/ I thought we all got it waived?

You have to fill out the fee waiver request form online and get a fee waiver code by e-mail. It's not automatically waived.

Okay, thanks! I also found that I had an undisclosed waiver from UVA and Michigan.

I wish fee waivers were acceptances :/

Email with an unsolicited waiver just came in from Michigan.

I'm pretty sure I'm just getting these so I can help increase their app pool and it's pretty depressing :(

Have gotten a bunch already with not nearly the stats for them. 159, URM, 3.74. Namely Vandy, Emory, Duke, Penn, Mich. --> sent me a packet through the mail. I've decided to retake in June and wait out this cycle. Does anyone know if they resend you fee waivers for the next cycle after you take the June LSAT? I've been hearing mixed signals on this.

As a September taker, if I haven't gotten waivers yet from schools where other Septembers takers have, does that just mean they're not coming? LSAT is above median at some of these places but GPA is <25th so I'm wondering if I'm just SOL. :(

Will definitely solicit for places that take them but am wondering if I should just get ready to swallow those fees...
