166/3.55 got fee waiver...


Wait seriously? I only paid full price for BU and Harvard. I was kind of peeved, but also love Boston so figured it was worth it.

EDIT: 3.6X/170


Yeah unsolicited as well. I was pretty surprised tbh.

I got an unsolicited BU waiver with 166/3.88. Only paid for Berkeley out of the 12 I applied to.

Haha and I got a Berkeley waiver and never ended up applying. Its too bad we can't trade these things.

This makes me think there isn't much rhyme or reason to the fee waiver process. I received waivers to Duke, Penn, Michigan, NYU, etc., while getting denied a waiver from UT upon solicitation.

Applied late November with an LSAT >>>>> 75 and still haven't heard anything.

Same here! Mine doesn't have a status date either, just says my application is complete.

Yeah, I'm sure they each sort for some data subset, and by dumb luck some people won't get a hit in one... like I got a Berkeley one as well but I don't have a ton of business applying there.

I wonder how many apps the average applicant pays for? It seems like TLS users end up paying for a few they didn't get waivers to, but I wonder what that figure looks like for those outside of TLS. As in, are there folks paying full price for 10-12 applications? That would really sting, especially the dings.

Everyone who got the call--did your status checker ever change?

Does anyone's change?

Mine went from UR back to complete...

Mine only changed after I got the call. That seems to be the general move from this forum. Good luck!

Looking at mylsn, seems like people with your numbers tend to get 70k ish.. I wouldn't feel so discouraged. From what I gather, BU has a solid reputation for being generous


That's good to know!! Thanks! I'll have to wait until their scholarship offers come out before I make a final decision.


Do you know when scholarship offers come out? I'm in a similar situation in terms of stats, and was recently accepted.

I've heard late January/early February, so I'm expecting to hear in the next week or two (hopefully). But BU had been kinda slow so I'm not entirely sure if that'll be accurate.

Just got the call! Super excited. BU is [basically] my top choice, depending on $$.

Does anyone know when ASW is?

Congrats! Their preview days are 03/24 and 03/31. If you go to your status page it should have a note at the top with password access to their portal.

Submitted 12-19; went complete after Dec LSAT. Like others, my status checker never changed to "under review"--it said "complete" up until today.

Dang, I was hoping you went complete in November! I've been complete since 12/14. Congrats though! Good luck on $$!
