How to ask school for fee waivers?

Postby naillsat » Sun Dec 02, 2012 2:38 am

What do you say or show to the school to which you want to ask for application fee waivers? Do you need to show them your W-2 form?

I asked a similar question the other day and received some criticism. Basically, you should send them an e-mail telling them how much you want to attend there law school and include your LSAC number, as well as you LSAT score and GPA. A lot of people will probably try to give you a hard time on here if they reply at all because there are already instructions on how to do this on TLS. Good luck!

I received waivers for most of my schools by saying:

"I'm interested in applying to XYZ School of Law and I am wondering if I might be eligible for an application fee waiver. My information:
GPA: ###
LSAT: ###
LSAC: ########"

I also emailed all of them back in August, so that might play a factor. Best of luck.

I'm on my phone so can't search easy but OP there is a page on this website explaining exactly how to ask for one. Look in the application section of the site.
