Fee waivers a second time?

Postby Decimal » Sun Apr 08, 2012 11:47 am

Sorry, if this has been asked already but I couldn't find the answer using the forum search. Moved this thread here from Financial Aid as it didn't seem to be getting much traffic.

I received several fee waivers through the Candidate Referral Service but am now considering retaking the LSAT because my application cycle didn't go as well as I had hoped. If I end up with a higher score in June, would those same schools that offered me fee waivers offer them to me again? I am asking because they were a major blessing in saving me hundreds of dollars but I don't want to feel that I wasted them by applying when my stats could be better in the future. Thanks!

I think you just have to change your application year on LSAC.

You'll get most of them again next year automatically. If there are a few that you don't get again, write to the school and tell them that you got a few waiver last you that you didn't use and can you please have another one this year.

Thanks! That's reassuring and I hope that applies to most schools (particularly the top 30 schools or so...getting inundated with fee waivers from third tier schools is something I expect but do not want). I did use many of the fee waivers I was given this year but plan to re-apply to those same schools for next year.
