This may have been asked/answered but are you signed up for Candidate Referral Service? Can't hurt to e-mail them or anything, but I think they grant strictly based on searching that.
Yes, I am. I've been granted fee waivers from schools with higher medians and higher rankings then Cornell, also. Too bad Cornell is my first choice, and I may end up having to pay them to apply!
Hm, very strange. Well I hope you get your waiver. Given that it's your top choice, are you dead set on NYC biglaw?
I hope I do too! No, I am actually applying to the PhD/JD program in Developmental Psychology and Law. There are very few of these programs around the country, and Cornell seems to have the most integrated, with Psych professors researching things closest to my interests. Unfortunately, the programs each require applications to EACH part separately...doubling the cost. That's where the fee waiver comes in...
Is Cornell your top choice?
