This is such a cool thread.

Has anyone gotten waivers from schools like CCN but still not anything from Cornell?

You bet. I got Columbia, NYU, Michigan, and UVA, yet no Cornell, Duke, or Georgetown.

I got Georgetown and Columbia but no Chicago, Michigan, NYU, Duke, Cornell ... I'm thinking Columbia opted to throw me a bone because I went to one of their grad schools. That's the only theory I can come up with.

Santa Clara via e-mail

Edit: not LGBT personalized, just mentioned a lot of international/study-abroad related stuff.

Though I won't be applying there, the targeted LGBT group letter and fee waiver was the most personal touch I've seen in the fee waiver process.

I've been following this thread but haven't posted anything yet, hence the long post.

Notable Fee Waivers:
UM (with a handwritten note about their IP program, and "love" underlined), Duke (no PT), Cornell, NYU (hidden), Columbia (hidden), UCLA (no scholarship mentioned), UTexas, UVA, Notre Dame, Vandy (with stalker-status disclaimer), MSU (full-tuition scholarship mentioned)

No UChi or GULC. :(
Packet arrived today from Wisc, but no fee waiver?

LSAT in low 170's, GPA around 3.7

Hope this helps!

Also: Santa Clara tailored their Fee Waiver to IP/ Law and Tech, thought that was interesting.

I just got the LGBT email too- rather impressive. Still won't be applying there, though.

Hmm, mine was about Public Interest, pretty cool of them to have a few different mass emails based off interest. Still not applying though, but it's not you, it's me, I'm an east coast guy and you're a west coast school.

I got two, one that seemed pretty general and one that mentioned that it's Catholic (I went to a Jesuit school for UG)

Update re: Columbia fee waiver from last year.

I just got off the phone with an admissions officer and he told me that I shouldn't pay online, but instead indicate that I will pay directly to the school. After that, I should print off the waiver I got last year, mail it in, and I should be fine.

So last year, did you explicitly ask them for a waiver? Or was it granted to you automatically? I'm just wondering if its worth me emailing them for a fee waiver.

It was granted automatically.
