Anyone know when/if these will be coming out?
I do not remember anybody from last year who got a merit waiver from them, either automatically or by request. With Fordham's finances so tight, I wouldn't be surprised if they just don't do them.
Thanks. And wow, that's a bummer.
It might have been nice if they had told me that when I e-mailed them, rather than pretending that by "merit" I might have actually meant "need."VoidSix wrote:I emailed NYU and they claimed they don't give out fee waivers, only the LSAC fee waiver that stresses extreme need. Are they lying to me?
I hate to say "lying" because it just sounds like something you shouldn't say about a school you really want to go to... but they gave me a fee waiver, so it does seem that their statement is inconsistent with reality.
NYU is not the only school guilty of doing this either, I wish schools would just be straight foward. I remember when I e-mailed Emory and requested a waiver, they straight up told me my GPA was too low. I much prefer that to schools who throw out those statements that are inconsistent with reality
+1 NYU is lying. they sent me a fee waiver in the mail and i was surprised because i have a 168 which i think is below their 25th percentile.
