Has anyone been able to get fee waivers from Duke or Cornell by request?

Also, I emailed Columbia asking for a fee waiver bc they gave me one midway though last cycle (I assumed bc they wanted to drive up application volume or they were lacking in URM applicants) which I didn't use and reminded them they gave me on last cycle. They said ehhh, yeah no we're not going that again. Thanks for asking though!

Are you serious? I e-mailed them a few months ago telling them that I had a fee waiver from last cycle but was applying in 2009-10. They told me to just e-mail when the next cycle starts and they would send me a new one. This is bad news for me if now they're not going to honor the last cycle's waivers. Shit.

They send out both priority track with a fee waiver as well as fee waivers with no priority track. I don't think you got it sorry :(

No, I think they just gave me the fee waiver to drive up app numbers or bc they didnt have enough URMs applying. They didnt send it to me until about Feb and I took the Oct LSAT. You should be fine.

I wish merit fee waivers were transferable; I have an LSAC fee waiver and would more than willingly pass on the merit waivers to people in need.

lol i know exactly how you feel. i'm not applying to georgetown purely out of spite for not getting a fee waiver when i've known of at least 2 people with lower lsats/lower gpas who got one.

Isn't the Columbia waiver hidden? I don't think you'll know if you got it until you checkout on LSAC when you're submitting the app.
