But it is still strange, why did Columbia send a fee waiver to someone whose LSAT is below 25% and still state in their email that the fee waiver is "on the basis of your performance on the LSAT only"? Do you have similar experiences? For those who have received the fee waiver, would you like to share your numbers?
I received a waiver this year. It was a little odd, I checked for a hidden one and didn't find one. So I emailed the next day asking for one, but they emailed back saying they didn't give them out in that way. Yet when I filled out the application the next day I had a hidden one.
To be honest though, I think the general CW is that fee waivers aren't indicative of much of anything acceptance wise.
