I solicited and got one but good luck getting it to work


Could you explain? They sent me one unsolicited.




Also, seems like the best place to ask...3.1 169, think I can pull any $? Or actually get accepted?


From one splitter to another, probably money of a WL? Thats what the trend seems to be on LSN.


Something is funky with BU and LSAC. BU has it recorded in their system that we have waivers but the LSAC site is still charging the fee. I have literally been on the phone with LSAC and BU for hours and all they ever did was blame each other.


Seems weird to waitlist someone then offer money, no? I'm not saying it doesn't happen all the time, the mentality behind it just seems like someone panicking, "Well just hold on, not sure about you yet OH FUCK HERE TAKE FIVE THOUSAND DOLLARS PLEASE".

From all the anecdotal evidence on TLS, you are waitlisted until the school needs you to help with medians, then when they need your number (LSAT in our case) they will throw money at you in order for you to commit.

this is probably a dumb question but who do I go about asking for a solicited fee waiver? Just the admissions office in general, also what were your numbers those of you who got them, I'm at a 3.7 and a 168, is it worth it to ask?

Checking in and also confirming fee waiver trouble.
I called BU yesterday and the girl who answered was super rude with me, but I guess it's because so many people have been having problems.
I'm not sure what to do because I don't want them to be irritated with me while they are reviewing my file. :|

You should definitely be able to get one. Email the admissions office.

I had no trouble with mine...

I can confirm this in my case. I was waitlisted last year with 168/3.8 and later got a 75k offer in April.

I just paid for my app even though I had a fee waiver (that wasnt working).. I wanted to get all my apps in early so I figured it wasnt worth the trouble but I can definitely understand why someone would wait to save that money.

Thanks for the advice guys! I emailed late last night so hopefully I have a response soon, already filled out the app just in case! :) I will probably apply even without one though

(179/3.47) and my request for a fee waiver was straight turned down. BC literally granted my request within hours and BU gives me the finger. I don't get it. I'm pretty broke so I guess I'll just wait until a CRS wave...

Probably not a stretch. You're at the LSAT median and not too far below GPA. I think you're fine.
