Quick ? - Is the fee waiver "expected income" after tax?

Postby turkey » Tue Dec 20, 2011 9:16 pm

Or before tax? It goes on to ask my income for 2011 which appears to be after, but I just want to make sure I don't mess it up.

Another quick question. Sorry. I am still listed on my ex's bank account - just haven't taken my name off yet. I of course don't access their funds. Do I have to list that as part of my bank account total?

If you took the Dec. LSAT and are currently awaiting your scores, do not submit the LSAC fee waiver until you get them. I made this mistake and had to wait almost two weeks to get my score IIRC.

Honestly, I'm pretty broke. I have an unemployed parent and a parent barely making 35k, work what I can during the school semester and still got denied. If you aren't severely broke but want to apply this cycle, I would directly contact the schools. Most will have need based fee waivers, and if you do well enough on the LSAT you can get a merit based one. I think they are especially hesitant to give them if you've already paid for a test (which blew my mind considering I wouldn't have paid had I known I could've applied earlier).

If you haven't already taken it, ignore this. Just don't want you to get screwed like I did. Also just go remove yourself from the account tomorrow to be safe.

Wow i am glad i saw this. I am waiting for dec scores. I hit cancel on the page you fill everything out so i never hit submit to do it. I assume i am safe? ?? Lol now im freaking out. I am sure i hit cancel because i never got to the bank section i left it blank. I guess if i had actually applied i would get an email or confirmation? Freaked myself out for a minute. Stress!

You should be safe. I just filled one out and had to submit, print the fax cover sheet and other forms on the page that says I submitted. It sounds like you should be okay.

Yea turkey, definitely at least wait until you get your score.

And trust me, you know when they do it. They won't let you forget. Hope you did well man.
