No waiver from Columbia, NYU, Chicago, or Berkeley, but got them from Penn, Michigan, Duke... UCLA... Vanderbilt... Boston U.

Seems pretty logical, right? What's up with USC? Anyone have one?


Did you request one from BU? I have around the same list of schools, and have yet to receive one from them.


Yes

Your request for a fee waiver has been approved. You will not have to pay the $75.00 application fee when applying to the Boston University School of Law. When you apply to BU Law via LSAC, upon check-out, LSAC should automatically recognize that you have received a fee waiver from us and you should not be prompted to pay the application fee. If for some reason, they do not recognize the waiver, please submit the following fee waiver code:


Also, USC and Cornell both responded to my request with something along the lines of "We use CRS; if you qualify, you'll probably get one." I'm tempted to check back since it's been a week. I "qualified" at better schools, you stingy bastards. Maybe they are using snail mail with waiver codes? Anyone have USC/Cornell yet?

Well... U of C was previously the only of the T6 schools I wasn't applying to... but they gave me a fee waiver. Congrats Chicago, you're now in the running for the honor of having me as a student in 2010, or at least to have the honor of being part of scholarship leveraging elsewhere.

I applied to BU about a week ago, and today I get a nice mailing asking me to apply and telling me that my app fee would be waived if I do. I'm definitely going to call them up and see if I can get an app fee refund, seeing as they specifically told me the app fee would be waived if I apply. Anyone have a similar situation to this?

A thank you from BC for visiting their table at a local law fair. No waiver though. :evil:

FYI, for those who missed out the first time, Alabama's doing another round of $20 in iTunes credits. Just got mine via email.

I didn't get an iTunes download email. I requested a waiver from Alabama and got one like a week ago. Dangit.

IUB by email, as well. Almost makes me want to apply, but I really cannot see myself in Indiana for even one year.

My brother lived in Indiana for a couple months and hated it.

I've never visited, but who knows?

IU-B as well. Funny thing is I e-mailed them a few weeks ago, got one, and already applied. Guess they just slapped my name on a list. :lol:


I want the Alabama/iTunes waiver... :cry: For whatever reason, they weren't on my list of schools I e-mailed and asked for waivers. Guess I'll have to fix that this evening when I get home.

My LSAC account is on hold because of a fee waiver appeal. BUT, I'm still getting fee waivers because CRS has my info. I don't know my Sept LSAT score yet, which really sucks.

I've gotten the following fee waivers:
Duke (Priority Track)
UVA
UCLA
W&M
Iowa
Depaul
Alabama

Any ideas on what my score could possibly be? I went over the test (got it from a friend), and know for a fact that I missed at least 4 questions, and have about 6-7 questions that I don't remember what I put down for answers. I don't think I'm below 167-168, but I would think that if I was in the 170s I would get more FWs. Any thoughts?

Check the Duke PT thread. But, I think everyone with a PT invite scored around 168-171
