A fat man who wants a 6" veggie sandwich without cheese. I think I can count all of those in existence on one hand.

Has anybody had success emailing Cornell for a FW?

I swear I'm going to be pissed if they don't send me one... that was the one school I wrote an excellent "why x" for!

I spoke to an administrator at Cornell several days ago and he said they're in the process of changing their fee waiver policy and only giving fee waivers to those who have an lsac approved one. I asked what are my chances of getting one if I emailed them and he replied 'you probably won't get one.'

Sorry if this is something I should know.. but how do we use the fee waiver code? Do you just enter it in when "checking out"? Thanks!

There should be an option during checkout for "I have an individual fee waiver code" or something like that.

Has anyone had any luck soliciting a waiver from Penn? I know they gave em out earlier but I don't remember reading if anyone who didn't get one was able to by emailing.

I received fee waivers from Columbia, USC, Penn, and Emory this week. I didn't solicit any of these.


edit reason: forgot Penn

I got the snailmail USC waiver today. I checked LSAC and the fee waiver was not registering for USC. When submitting the applications, do we just choose the "I'll send payment directly to the law school option"? Were there directions on what to do in the letter (it got sent to my permanent address and I haven't actually seen it; my future mother-in-law just said "you got a fee waiver from USC"). Anyone know?

Upon submission of your online application using the LSAC service, print the LSAC Certification Letter, sign it, and check the CRS Fee Waiver (CRS) box located at the bottom of the Certification Letter. Please mail the Certification Letter along with this fee waiver form to the address below.

Please note: Refunds will not be granted for applications previously submitted.

Those who got the USC waiver, do you mind sharing your stats?

Thanks!

If I just recently signed up for the service that releases my February LSAT score, how long until I get fee waivers? Also, since I signed up so late will I miss out on those who have already sent out fee waivers?
