Damn I somehow got Columbia, but still don't see Penn. I don't even want to apply to Columbia, 0 chance of getting in, but Penn come on!

I also could not believe the typos in the Columbia email.

Seriously. Passive voice and misuse of the long dash FTL.

Wow. My lack of a Columbia waiver is making me feel like Hank Williams lonesome over here.

I got one from Columbia also, but for some reason the fee waiver does not appear when I go to checkout. Is anyone else having the same problem?

Not exactly a representative sample on this thread. I doubt very few people run here to comment on their lack of fee waivers. Besides, I think we can agree on a nearly-universal theory that the more you want to go to a school the less likely they are to give you a waiver. Wasn't there a discussion on here earlier about how we should be able to swap them? I have a Minnesota, and Illinois, and a "Mystery Bag" for anyone with a Vanderbilt.

I got the Columbia waiver with the remark about it being basedn my LSAT only, but I don't think it's a dig at anyone's GPA because mine's a 4.0. Haven't checked for Penn yet, will when I get to my computer.

Hidden waiver at Penn, though I don't want to encourage their yield protecting ways. Still nothing at Chicago.

should I email Columbia and ask why my fee waiver does not automatically appear in LSAC even though I receive the fee waiver e-mail?

I just got Penn! That completes all the fee waivers I wanted. Applying to 11 schools and only paying for HLS. :mrgreen:

I was surprised to get the Columbia one today (and kind of excited), but sad that I didn't get Penn :( boo.

I've gotten no fee waiver love from the T14 at all (save the one requested from UVA). And CLS said they wouldn't honor my waiver from last year bc I'm not as cool as Helmholtz. Anyway, hopefully a solid showing on 9/26 will change things.

Anyone had any luck with contacting GW or Georgetown about a fee waiver?

I emailed both and Georgetown said "Your request has been considered and approved, the waiver will display on LSAC". GWU said "We are cheap, we dont give out merit waivers. Look how cheap we are" (may not be the actual quote for GWU)
