It surprises me that it's that simple; wouldn't the school want some sort of deposit or something indicating that you would actually consider going to their school? It just seems weird that McGeorge would give a waiver to a kid who already has a 163 knowing full well that there's no way in hell they will get him.
remember- TLS does not represent a lot of law school applicants. There probably are some 163rs out there that have mcgeorge at the top of their list ( or a similar school)- or would choose the lower ranked ( or lower tier school) with a larger scholly over a higher ranked/ tier school without second guessing it.
Agreed...and to be honest, even if getting that waiver means you have to waste an application fee to McGeorge/whatever TTT you choose, it's definitely, absolutely worth it. The potential to go to a much better school >>>>>>> 75 or however many bucks.
