Just found my Duke hidden fee waiver. So happy!! I really didn't not want to pay that $70.

Also got USC in the mail. Don't know if I'm applying yet since I already applied to UCLA and will most likely get in.

You want Fall 2010 - Summer/Fall JD & Dual Deg

They use the same app if you are applying for just a JD or a JD and another degree but they use a separate app for JD and MBA

I have fee waivers from UM, UVA, and BU. A couple others from places I've never heard of.

Did anyone else receive an Emory fee waiver, with or without request?

I got one from Alabama saying that if I apply they'll waive the fee and give me $20 worth of itune download. So I applied :D

I wish I could trade off all of these fee waivers from 18-30 range schools for better ones...

I got Washington and Lee by e-mail on 9/27/09. I haven't indicated in any way that I want to go there, and I just took the LSAT the day before, so I'm not sure what their reasoning behind sending it is.

Those of you who have succesfully requested a fee waiver, did you give the school some reason or just ask with no explanation? Is e-mail or a phone call generally more effective?

They don't charge app fees to anybody but wanted you to feel special.

Got UMichigan today via snail mail, complete with lovely handwritten note at the bottom!

I discovered the waiver Friday via LSAC, but getting the official mailing was a nice treat.

Dumb noob question, but how do these merit waivers work? I email a school that I have good numbers at, and if I get a waiver, how does that waiver get used when using LSAC to submit the app?
