Don't worry about it, I doubt you will have any hidden fee waivers.

What abotu WashU. They don't have any extra essays and am ready to send everything in. I've gotten waivers from similar schools...and I don't wanna pay for it today if I don't have to.

I think they're pretty good about honoring requests.

I got one by request. But, they were kind of slow. (at least two weeks, I think)

Reminds me of an ex who calls over and over again, and then sends a text that says, "I don't know if you got all my calls, I thought the ring sounded funny so I didn't know if you were getting them"

Forgive my ignorance (trust me, I read over the whole thread before asking), but what is a "hidden" fee waiver?

Update: Ok, nevermind. Figured it out. I'd delete this post but can't figure out how to do it just yet.

Sometimes fee waivers are given out by schools without notification being sent. (who the hell knows why, though sometimes its just that you get the e-mail after you already find the "hidden" waiver on LSAC) Basically you go through your app on LSAC and at the end when it's time to pay you won't have too, because the fee will have been waived. If you want to check for them you can advance through the application without filling everthing in.

Also, read the thread again.

Got it, thanks. Realized I wasn't reading from the beginning of the thread (new user, sorry). Thanks for the reply.

Did the Vandy fee waiver come in the form of a code that you plug in at the checkout? Like you're getting free shipping from J.Crew or something?

Free shipping at J.Crew!!! Someone else understands how important this is! (PS, you can actually get free shipping for purchases over $100 online atm, just fyi...). And to answer your question -- no it didn't. So long as you apply through LSAC, the fee will be waived.

I went to check out tonight, and there was a spot where I was supposed to enter my "individual fee waiver code"? And it has that box like at the J.Crew check-out.

Sigh. J.Crew is now paradigmatic.

I got the Vandy fee waiver too, but there was no code. They just said it would be applied automatically when I checked out. I also got UCLA via email.
