For those who have turned to filling out apps and such, how much are ya'll expecting the total cost of applying to be after fee waivers and such are factored in? I'm looking at something upwards of $2200. FUCK.

Time to start soliciting.

Definitely solicit ASAP. I'm down to around $500 (give or take depending on my dec score) because I have waivers to over 90% of the schools I'm applying to.

I'm around $535. Thinking everything inside T20 minus YSB. No Chicago or H (obviously) waivers. Might cut out some/all of the T20 range schools.

Hmm, and what is the best way to go about soliciting fee waivers? The tls guide says to simply state one's gpa and lsat when asking <<<-- is this still tcr?

Hello,

I am interested in applying to [LAWL SCHOOL NAME], and I was hoping you would be willing to extend a fee waiver to me this cycle. I'm very excited about the location of the law school in [LAWL SCHOOL CITY], the [LAWL SCHOOL UNIQUE TIDBIT #1] offers, and the excellent group of professors [LAWL SCHOOL NAME] fields. Please let me know if you are able to waive my application fee.

My LSAC information is:

LSDAS GPA: 2.1

LSAT SCORE: 129

LSAC ACCOUNT NUMBER: L33333333

Thank you,

snag

Out of curiousity, why no YSB? Are you not interested or do you not think your chances are high enough to justify the app fee?

Hi! After two weeks of anxiously waiting for my score, I finally caved and created a TSL account. I figured it might be a good distraction :? Is everyone planning on sending out apps the day scores are released?

Well, just sent out all of my fee waiver emails and received a handful of automated "closed for break" responses. If anyone needs another reason to do well on the LSAT--> fee waivers.

Hi! I'm planning on getting the vast majority of them out within a day or so of receiving my score.

If my retake is high enough, I'll consider them. But I'm sub-25 GPA at those 3 schools and they're largely unreceptive to people splitting their percentiles. And I just don't see myself picking B over [m]any of the T13. Also no waivers.

I haven't watched any of the acceptance movement, how are you doing?

If you are applying to the entire T14, it's minimum $25 X 14 = $350

Add Yale, Harvard, Stanford, Berkeley (no merit waivers) and you're at another $300 or so. = $650

For me I had to add 2 other non T14 schools (+$50) and I didn't get waivers from NYU and Columbia (+$170).

Shits expensive.

ETA: A friend of mine applied for an LSAC waiver, and somehow got it--- I hadn't thought of that option at all.

Are you allowed to apply for a fee waiver from LSAC after you already bought CAS?

The LSAC fee Waiver is only granted to those that show financial need, which is not easy. Your parents have to practically be unemployed.

I applied and was denied. I'm married so I didn't have to provide my parents' info but I am poor af. BUT I have a (very) small retirement fund from a previous job so I didn't qualify because I could theoretically dip into that. :/

Geez, im guessing they base solely off the previous years income but that would suck because i was employed last year.
