Fee waiver today too. I think I'm competitive, so I guess I'll do it.

I just got a fee waiver as well, but I took the LSAT all the way back in October. Did those who received waivers recently take the LSAT in Dec or Feb. I'm below both medians, but I guess its worth a shot.

I received a fee waiver too, and at 160/3.51 I have to believe they are just padding. I can get a freakin awesome burger and a beer for $16 bucks. It seems like that would be worth more than a WUSTL reject letter.

On the flip side, they DO say you can mail a paper application. If I do that, I wouldn't have to pay LSAC, right?

Took mine in October too. My LSAT is at the 75th and gpa is just below the median, and I only just got one today.

You still need to pay the LSAC reporting fee, which is how they get your LSAT and LSAC GPA info, I believe.

I, too, just received The World's Most Last-Minute Fee Waiver ...

Application in. I didn't get dinged by any of the other schools I applied to, so WUSTL will make my cycle complete!

Just got the fee waiver. I took the Feb LSAT. Currently at 3.6, 160. Obvious ding numbers.

HOWEVER, the deadline for WUSTL is April 1st. Since scores come back in early March, I'll wait to see how my Feb LSAT goes before I throw away 16$

The interest section of the application: a must?

What seems to be the range of people who got a fee waiver today? From what it seems, I have the lowest LSAT.

That nice burger and beer does seem more tempting than another rejection from a tier one school.

Haven't read through this whole thread and didn't see your LSAT score on your profile but I have a 155 and 3.84. Got a fee waiver today.

I have a 157 and 3.37.

I have no idea why I was included.

I'm right about where you are. I'm tempted to apply (as a "why not?" sort of thing) but don't really want to just boost their statistics of applications and rejections.

Got the fee-waiver today with a 152/3.06. Saving my $16 and not giving them the satisfaction.

Damn... 158/3.5

I thought that maybe I had an outside shot or something since a good number of people from my school go there, its close by...

Looks like it went to about everyone. Oh well...

Thought about applying, but since this is such a transparent attempt to boost stats and I stand no legitimate chance of getting in, I'm opting out. This seems somewhat sleazy in my opinion, but I guess most top schools pull this stuff to be "ultra selective."

I took the bait. I have crap numbers and sent the $16. Can't wait for my rejection letter!

I actually received several fee waivers in the last week, so it is not just WUSTL. The others were all TTTT schools though, so it does seem as though these guys could stand to keep better company.

Perhaps I will send a rejection letter to their application request, then report it to LSAC so they will know how desirable I am?

I mean they didn't even take the time to write address me in the email. It said "Dear Applicant." At least hotmail was intuitive and sent it straight to the junk folder.
