same. The unsolicited came like an hour after the solicited one.

Solicited means that you asked for the waiver, unsolicited means the school just sent it to you without you petitioning for it.

lol at WUSTL being the only school that has given me a solicited fee waiver. Vandy and Notre Dame didn't (probably should've told ND I'm Catholic lololol). WUSTL is impressing me with the little things.

I want to know why WUSTL is one of the only schools I don't have a waiver from . . .

Your blog doesn't say, but if your LSAT <168, that's probably why.

It is, but I received waivers from UCLA, Vandy, UPenn, Columbia, UMich, UVA, Northwestern, Duke and a few others. Just seems odd. Oh well.

Most of these schools are GPA whores (UCLA, Vandy, Penn, Duke). If you have a higher GPA, that might be why. Columbia and UVa sent them out to almost everyone, it seems like, and Northwestern might be looking for reverse splitters to balance out their class as well. WUSTL pretty clearly favors the LSAT.

I meant this, but I'm also going to have to take the SO down there to see it too.

ETA: Lol at talking like I'm already in with money when I'm not. But I am starting to like WUSTL.

Damn straight you are. Trust me, a visit will clinch it. Admissions at wustl undergrad are really good at selling it, and I imagine the law school is too. Let me know if you visit before ASWs roll around, I'll hook you up with some profs and students to chat with.

Come over Thanksgiving, and if you can get here while classes are still in session, sit in on a Tamanaha Torts class.

Not to be a downer, but it's not always a keg. Frequently, it's just a ton of beer.

that's really weird; my LSAT is a 167 and i got a solicited and an unsolicited from WUSTL, was denied at umich and no repsonse from vandy/penn/uva/northwestern so i'm guessing that's a no haha

They'll give you one if you're above both medians. This means > 164 on LSAT. Just e-mail them.

Haha well, that works. And if not, undergrad happy hour is always there for the crashing.
