what's the difference between the automatic and normal searches on MyLSN?

Normal is a range, auto is exact scores, right? Doesn't auto give you 1 input box per, whereas normal gives you 2?

If you solicit a fee waiver and they say no, will they hold it against you? Is it common for them to say no?

No, it means it finds people "around" your similar stats. If you click the arrows on the far right of the results it shows the users and their stats.

If so, I'm fucked. Most schools I emailed were like "Wait until CRS gives you one"

That happens to a lot of people, in which they just tell them to wait for CRS. I think if they see your numbers, and they tell you to wait for CRS, then they're probs saying that because they know with your #'s you will get one.

No, it means it finds people "around" your similar stats. If you click the arrows on the far right of the results it shows the users and their stats.

"Regarding the automatic search, an explanation that is somewhat more detailed than you might be looking for... it expands the search criteria until it gets a sample size of around 8-10 people or until the search criteria become too broad. (This is part of the reason it's not recommended for URM's: the sample sizes are so small that it just gets too broad, and useless. You need a human touch to find good ranges to put in when the sample sizes are low.) It prioritizes a narrow LSAT range over a narrow GPA range. It also starts by prioritizing a narrow GPA range over a narrow cycle range, but after going back to 2013 or something it starts to expand GPA more than cycles. Altogether, though, it alternates between expanding LSAT, GPA, and cycles. You can see the range it applies to each school by hovering over the info icon on the right hand side of the row." - MyLSN creator

That's a more lengthy way of what I said. It's not exact, it's around your stats.

It could still be only people with your stats if there's a large enough sample of them (10ish people).

Will schools consider my app if I'm registered to take in December? Currently trying to cancel it, but I don't want it to slow down my app process.

I turned down CRS when I submitted my CAS just now, and then realized it might be beneficial. Now I can't find it on LSAC page - did I screw myself by not signing up for CRS with CAS?

Edit: Nvm figured it out

They place them on hold until your score is sent. It's a two-way street, in that they'll see that you submitted previously, yet they've made decisions already by the time you go complete.

How can I quickly cancel my registration? I don't care about the refund, I just want to cancel it.

Totally did the same thing at first! Didn't realize CAS was tied into fee waivers. I Just didn't want emails from shit TTT schools.

I'm fairly certain that if you call LSAC and cancel, then have them update the change, it should only be today. You could also e-mail each of the schools and tell them that you've cancelled, and that they can go ahead with completing your app.
