Should I start sending email requests? I don't want to email the schools if they dont have a history of giving waivers.


Only BU out of the 4.

I didn't want it and got it. But the whole "you have three days to apply" is a bit stupid.. That isn't even enough time for me to research the school..

I also have a NYU fee waiver now.

Was that a mailed or hidden waiver?

EDIT: Also got NYU hidden waiver now. Just waiting for CLS for a t14 sweep of schools that actually give merit fee waivers.

Hidden..

I don't have columbia, UV, or Georgetown.. Just finished the primary apps and waiting.. I have 25 or so e-mailed and a bunch of hidden.

How long you going to wait Geepee?

Well... I have to wait for LOR's which are about 2 months in the making. So, I'll probably be waiting for at least another week or 2 even though my parts of the apps are done. I would have no problem paying for CLS, it's just a little frustrating knowing that other people with around my stats have gotten a waiver that is supposed to be 100% based on the LSAT and I haven't.

Yeah. I didn't get one from Cornell, NYU, or CLS. I must not have marked "New York" in my preferences on the CRS.

I got the UT email too. Are they serious with the November 1 thing? This has to be some kind of mistake. I bet if their office is flooded with calls saying "I am interested in applying but three days simply isn't enough time" they will extend the deadline. Oh well, I was never going to apply there anyway.

They started sending out emails over a week ago; I'm not sure whats the deal with this last batch.

How is three days not enough time? There are no supplemental essays, and the application takes 5 minutes.

Edit: Because maybe some people aren't freaks and didn't get their LORs in and PS done in August like me. Sorry to be an ass.

I have no idea what you are saying here. The before edit and after edit seem to be in opposition... My LOR's and PS are done, but I tailor my applications to each school I apply to.. Plus I don't know about the school so I would read up on them and see if I am really interested...

Is there any way to find hidden waivers after you've already applied? I'm guessing not, but I just sent my NYU app last night and am just curious if I would've gotten one.

+1 Submitted two days ago. Should've held out a little longer, I guess, but I'm applying ED, and I got antsy.

In regard to three days being enough time... I filled out the paperwork about a week and a half ago for my updated transcripts to be sent to LSAC. They still haven't been processed. Same with two LORs that were sent last week.
