So, these fee waiver emails I am getting from schools....

Postby TimeToChoose » Mon Nov 05, 2012 9:27 pm

Sorry if this has been asked before, as I am sure it has. I took the October LSAT (159), and am getting a slew of emails from schools offering me a fee waiver, encouraging me to apply. For example, today I received waivers from Cardozo, William & Mary, Pitt, Tulane, Case Western etc. Are these schools generally interested in me based on my scores (159, 3.63), or are these basically emails to anybody? I guess I am trying to guess if getting these emails raises my chances for admission/their interest makes it seem more likely that I will get admitted. Thanks guys!

The schools where you're not competitive want you to apply so they can reject you. This makes them seem more competitive which boosts them in rankings.
