Does everyone else's email say that if your LSAT is at or above the 86th percentile you qualify? Or is it because I'm at the 86th percentile that they put that in there?

Either way, their email looks like a postcard.


Mine doesn't say anything about percentiles. Did your email mention the "Faculty Scholar Award " as well?


You need a 166+ LSAT for that, according to their site. 162+ for the other one.

Has anyone gotten USC this afternoon? I remember a rumor (from Thursday) that they would be sent sometime today. Hoping I make that list.

Also, I'm surprised I haven't heard anything from Pepperdine -- I'm plenty over the 86th, and I sent them a note a little while ago asking for some materials to be sent to me.

I haven't received the USC fee waiver, but I spoke with a rep earlier this week who indicated that this Friday would be the earliest they went out.

I couldn't resist replying to the Regent University fee waiver e-mail with a simple "lol".

Via snail mail earlier this week. Wednesday maybe? It's a little fold up brochure and the waiver is mentioned on there somewhere. I know it's been said on here a lot, but have you tried emailing and requesting one? I got quite a few just by asking.

Loyla Los Angeles sent me an email saying they would waive my fee if I visit them at the upcomming law fair at my school. Anyone heard of things like this before?

Yeah I received it too. Helps them sell you on the school as well as find those who are willing to go out of their way for a school.

im applying there- its not a bad safety if you want to practice in NYC. if youre top of the class, you have a pretty good shot at solid placement somewhere in the city. a girl i know from undergrad turned down fordham to go there on full schol, & quite honestly out of all the 2Ls i know she had the most callbacks during OCI & just got a biglaw offer. shes probably more the exception than the rule, & im sure things arent so sunny for the student body as a whole but its definitely not a bad choice if you dont have the numbers for better schools in the area

I thought I was getting the Vandy fee waiver I wanted then was disappointed with a bunch of Valparaiso business.
