The University of Illinois has waived its application fee for everyone this cycle. I mean that literally. You can probably verify it by starting an app on LSAC.

Also, how do you go about requesting fee waiver? Do you just email the admissions office and ask? When should you do it?

Fee waiver deadlines June for some schools? Looks like the latest was Aug 31. So I can't get a fee waiver now. Oh well.

Just email the school, politely give your statistics, your LSAC #, etc. and ask them if they are willing to waive your application fee. Email goes to the admissions office.

Simple answer to a simple question. Thank you for your help and for not being a snide a-hole. Much appreciated.

That probably depends on when you want to apply. If you plan on sending in your applications before your get your new LSAT score, then ask now. If not, ask after. I would assume schools would be less likely to refund / waive your fee if you've already send in the application and paid for it.

That's my advice, anyway.

:roll: I don't think it's snide or a-hole(ish) to suggest that you read the thread before you begin asking repetitious questions ... everything you asked has been answered in pages prior to this one.

I didn't see this specifically explained. It was an assumption that everyone readiing the thread already knew what the dates meant.

Wow. U of Illinois really does give fee waivers to everyone. I just got one even though I'm only a "consider" there. I guess I'll apply anyway. :roll:

I e-mailed GULC asking for a fee waiver, they replied with a "lol no".

Not giving fee waivers, they just have no app fee this year. Better way to think of it.

Everybody needs their safeties. Eh, I'll just wait till early January to apply, if any acceptances from better schools have arrived before that, then SCREW 'EM! I don't need your diploma mill!

Oh dear, where exactly is this PS line? I got a viewbook yesterday but had to work late and didn't read through it yet. Did it give you a code or say that the waiver is embedded in your account?
