Was it in the form of a little ditty?


I can apply to any of the pink houses as long as they are in our country.

Don't you wish you could trade it for a Bruce Springsteen fee waiver?

Fee waiver from Tulsa this evening via e-mail.

I'd sure love to get a school I'm actually considering.

If I score well on the LSAT, will some of the fee waivers that have already been e-mailed out apply to me (if I meet their merit standards)?

Just checked Columbia again, and there's a new radio button that says, "I have an individual fee waiver code."

Has anyone gotten correspondence from Columbia with such a code? Or does this mean that communications with said codes will be out soon?

I wasn't planning on applying to Notre Dame, but I got the waiver over the weekend.

I was also wondering about this. I wrote to Columbia about it and this is what they said:

Dear XXXX,

Please contact LSAC for technical support and mention your CRS fee waiver.

Best wishes,

So I just sent a message to LSAC, hoping they write back soon. If anyone has any more information, post it please.

No, I think they sent out fee waivers pretty late last year.

I'm confused about the St. Thomas - Minnesota e-mail. If the school is not (as I had thought) actually in St. Thomas, but rather in Minneapolis, why does it have the #2 best quality of life??

I saw this too, but unfortunately I think it's only providing an additional option to check if you have received a fee waiver directly from the school. My guess is it's reflected on everybody's checkout screen. If you have received a fee waiver by requesting one, receiving one at a forum, or some other atypical way, then you should have that several digit code to input, but if you haven't (and don't have a hidden one), you still have to pay.

I was here for pretty much the entire cycle last year and don't remember ever seeing anybody get one. I could be wrong, though.

Do fee waivers granted last cycle still apply this cycle? I took the LSAT last October and received a few fee waivers, but haven't received them this cycle.
