Wasn't someone just talking about how Vandy is THE SHIT and so hard to get into unless you have a 169? I mean I know fee waivers are no guarantee, but...

And also, that's BS they didn't give you one. My LSAT is 165 and Emory responded with a fee waiver number for me. I hope Vandy gives me one, too.


I have a 164 and I got a fee waiver from Emory.

Emory told me GPA of 3.5 or better, otherwise I can request a need based wavier ... which I will!

Question about Duke: I got a fee waiver, but was not offered priority track. Is it possible this is because my numbers are too high and they don't think I'll go? I'd love to be into a law school two weeks from now...


Most likely.

Yeah, they did the same to me. Unless you specifically request and show interest in the school, Duke only seems to give out PT invitations to 169-173 candidates.

JGG- I got a 169 and just got a Columbia waiver. Also just got UCLA. No word from Vandy. I would wait til the end of the day to give up hope from them, I bet you still get one.

Just got the UCLA waiver as well. I'm pretty excited as I'm thinking of applying ED there. Congrats on the Columbia waiver. Would love one of those!

when a waiver is hidden, do you see it only when you press the "submit" button on the LSAC site? Or, can we see it some other way??

I feel the same way. I was gonna pay for UCLA, but they gave me a waiver. I have resigned myself to paying for Michigan at this point. I'm still holding out hope for a Vandy waiver.

Has anyone solicited Chicago or NYU? Those are the last two major schools I'd like fee waivers for. Well, besides Berkeley but I heard they don't give out merit-based.

I tried. They both said no. Those were the only two schools I actually had to pay for.

Don't bother with NYU. I tried this morning and got a generic "NYU will approve LSAC fee waivers" response.

I wasn't saying they wouldn't or didn't give me a fee waiver.. I was talking purely about how they responded to my admissions question. I did not ask for a fee waiver.

Did the UCLA fee waiver mention anything about performance on LSAT?

Dear Helm,

I am writing to encourage you to apply to UCLA School of Law. Based on your performance on the LSAT you may be a competitive candidate for admittance.

We will waive our $75 application fee; simply complete our application using the LSDAS electronic application through LSAC at http://www.lsac.org. Your application fee will automatically be waived.

UCLA and Columbia came minutes ago...seems on par with others here. Those, combined with UVA and Duke feel pretty good, but still waiting to hear from Northwestern, Cornell, Michigan, Georgetown, and others. I know Chicago and NYU don't typically offer unsolicited waivers, but anyone heard from the other 4? are they "hidden" perhaps?
