Me too! I actually really fell in love with them when I found out how amazing their MSW/JD program is. I am unsure if I will even apply to it anymore but I still am very interested in the school!

tag. does having over a 170 make this a safety? being a splitter is so weird: every school ranked higher than WUSTL is a reach but WUSTL is a safety?

Yep, that's how it works. Per last cycle's LSN graph, there were 0 denials and 1 WL for applicants with a 168+. Northwestern is practically a lock with WE and 172+, but a splitter won't get into lower-ranked schools like UT/UCLA/USC. Alls I know is that if these splitter-friendly schools didn't exist, I'd be screwed, so I'm very thankful they do.

Has anyone had any success soliciting a fee waiver from here? The people in the fee waiver thread haven't seemed to get any responses.

I submitted my app on the 15th but it is the only one that still shows "transmitted" but not complete on my lsac profile. Anyone else have this issue?

Just got an unsolicited fee waiver... after already having paid the app fee and submitted a couple days ago. Hoping that I can figure out some kind of refund.
