I also could not believe the typos in the Columbia email.
Seriously. Passive voice and misuse of the long dash FTL.

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.

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.

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)
