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.


Have not been employed at a paying job for several years. Self employed= basically unemployed but with more work :lol:

Pretty sure it was the retirement account since that's the only money I have.

So there's really no way to get a fee waiver if there's no LSAT on record? I suppose it would be stupid to wait for waivers once we get our December scores to apply this cycle?

Welcome! Planning on sending out apps ASAP after score release. Got to get that PS done though. And resume, but that should be easier.

Also, what optional or 'why x' statements are people writing? I'm planning on Duke, Penn, UVA, and I'm not exactly sure where else it would be useful.

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.


Thanks for working the math out. Now I have to go cry about how broke I'll be after the holidays :lol:

I would recommend Michigan and NU (NU's is short, though). Also, make sure you read Penn's prompt before you start writing-it's not quite a straight "Why Penn."

LOL! Same.

Btw -- what the consensus on submitting applications the first week of January? I just got scolded by someone for "waiting" too long... and they advised that I wait until the next cycle :roll: ...thought I'd ask a larger audience on their opinion. I'm also waiting for DEC LSAT scores :shock: .

I think I mentioned this before but last cycle I applied pretty late and still got a couple decent offers. I don't think there would be much harm in applying in January and seeing what type of offers you get. If it ends up not working out, you can wait for next cycle and try again. You might have to pay twice for some application fees but, if you're willing to take on that risk, I don't see why you shouldn't try in January. I could, of course, be horribly wrong but, I'm sure that if I am, someone will point it out soon enough.

I have basically no interest in going to either of those schools. Should I still do it for scholarship negotiation purposes?

I don't think the disadvantage of applying in January is that bad (esp. considering the drop in applications this year.)
