I believe you are incorrect about Duke. They do give out merit-based fee waivers. This is the email I received from them. My parents make way over the need-based maximum to ever get a fee waiver based on need.
"Dear Ms. *****:
I am pleased to learn about your interest in attending law school. We received information about your outstanding academic record from the Law School Admission Council. Based on your strong credentials, I invite you to apply to Duke Law School. If you choose to apply, your $70 application fee will be waived. (The application deadline is February 15, 2010.)

I look forward to reading your application!
