I got Chicago and NYU, but no Columbia. Slightly below median LSAT, above 75th GPA.


I got Columbia and NYU, no love from Chicago. High LSAT, middling GPA. Shows you how much Columbia and NYU love those LSAT scores.

Got Columbia today as well. Hidden, but definitely a good feeling (though it will lead, at best, to a waitlist). Means I've gotten all of CCN at least, and there's no reason not to apply.

Does anyone know if Iowa needs an official transcript? Or does an unofficial transcript from online work? I can get an official one, but then I have to go through the hassle of dealing with the registrar's office.

Like many of you, I just checked Columbia again and found a hidden waiver. No love from Chicago yet.

Finally got Michigan in the old-timey mail, complete with the handwritten Sharpie note. Swoon.

Ugh, I'm above the 75th for both GPA and LSAT for NYU and Columbia, and haven't gotten their fee waivers.

Anyone think it's worth calling either school to ask about hidden fee waivers?

They'll just tell you that the only merit fee waivers that are given are done automatically through CRS.

Penn told me fee waivers were made available automatically, and those receiving one would be e-mailed by Oct. 1st.

Sometimes they hide them in your neighbors mailbox or possibly a large bush in front of your house. Go find them.

Or search this thread

Calm down, its just frustrating answering a question that is explained a bunch of times in this thread, or that could easily be figured out by the poster (you). Don't take it all so seriously.

When you try to pay it'll say you don't have to.
