I think it's more of a "don't like it" kind of thing. This is an anonymous message board about law schools. Stop being so obnoxious. You are also not special, just another faceless poster. There is no need for you to talk about yourself so much.


I hope all your dreams come true.

Lol, same here. If only I had the foresight to get a 3.8 or higher :(

IKR? Next time I'm 17 and an undergrad, I'm definitely going to do it right.

Currently finishing my PS. Did any of you guys received a waiver for the application fee?

I didn't.


Oh right I just reread their instruction and they only give merit-based waivers or to people in activities like peace corps. Anyways, I just applied, good luck everyone :D

I was under the impression that they only accept need-based fee waivers.

Does Berkeley Law grant fee waivers?
We will waive your application fee automatically if you are approved for an LSAC fee waiver. We do not provide merit-based fee waivers. Application fee waivers are available to current participants in public service programs (Peace Corps, Teach for America, etc.), who are active members of the military, or who have unusual circumstances. Information and the online waiver request form are here. The deadline to submit a fee waiver application is a few weeks earlier than the application deadline, usually in mid-January.


Sadly they only give waivers to people who are currently in those programs. No RPCV love

literally just had a dream that I was accepted only to receive an email that they sent their acceptance letter to the wrong person.

It's like Orange County backwards.

Any idea when we start moving to complete? Very few completes on LSN and they all occurred in late September for people who applied earlier that month.
