Few Waivers for transfer apps?

Do schools give these? More importantly those in the T-14? It really doesn't matter because these schools are worth it, but it would be nice to save a couple hundred bucks if possible.

From looking at the sites myself, virtually all of them will not give fee waivers for transfer apps. I don't know of one that does :-\

I had a fee waiver for RD apps that got me out of U Chicago's fee (but not GULC oddly enough) but when the LSAC found out that I had already started law school they took it away. But I think the individual schools do give fee waivers in specific situations (with those codes) so you can try and call them.

I have a fee waiver from LSAC (unlike a lot of people who ask the school for one) and my fee was waived on GW, WUSTL but not on GULC. It looks like a few more schools may allow it, like UVA, but I have yet to send those in yet.

I know that some schools do. Just email the admissions department and ask. It can't hurt.

You can apply for one at Stanford, but keep in mind that it'll probably be about a week before you get a response. Considering their applications are due on the 15th, you'll be cutting it pretty close.
