LSAT, if you don't mind? I was hoping for a USC.

Nice! Is it bad that I don't really want to attend Duke but I'd like to apply PT there as a test-run? haha

Just got my first fee waiver from Cincy. Not a school I was looking at but with my GPA need to get as many apps in as possible. Somebody mentioned a Miami fee waiver. Miami is one of my safe schools so would love to get to apply there for free!

Also got Cincinnati, but I'm really really happy about it. It's one of my new-look targets :).

The reason I am asking is that my transcripts aren't in yet..


If/when both are available I'd say LSDAS because that's obviously the official one.

Just got my first waiver from Cincinnati. Nice to know that I'm actually waiver worthy somewhere other than Cooley. :)

Took Sept. test and just got a fee waiver for 09-10 cycle. Trouble is--I'm not planning to apply until 10-11 cycle (and this is indicated on CRS preferences). This school (and it looks like many) only gives one waiver. Anything I can do to have more waivers held off? Change preferences to 'not sure if/when I'm applying" on CRS? Apply anyway and defer ? (Not really ready to do this one..) Sorry, sort of OT.

Got my first wavier, from UVA, and then one from Cincinnati.

UVA is probably LSAT based because my GPA is 2.8! LSAT=176

Around this time next year simply email them, mention your old fee waiver, and there shouldn't be a problem.

Can someone who took the LSAT for the first time in Sept. and got the Duke waiver today post GPA/LSAT stats please?

UVA, Duke, Cincinnati, South Carolina

No way UVA is LSAT based considering my stats.. has to be overall index based. Anyone else considering ED to UVA?

I'm pretty sure UVA is based on the LSAT, if you take it you get a fee waiver.

What are your numbers, if you don't mind me asking (I'm hoping for a UVA waiver)?
