Is a fee waiver a good sign of your chances for admission?

Postby peterb0y » Mon Nov 01, 2010 4:32 pm

I just started getting fee waivers for schools ( I haven't applied for any fee waivers, they've just sent them voluntarily)... Can they be interpreted as any form of metric for admission?

For the record, it was UCLA (dunno if they tend to send them out alot, etc)


Thanks!

No.

Schools want a lot of people to apply--no matter if they qualify to get in.

Why?

Makes the school look more elite when they have a lower acceptance rate. More people apply = more people get rejected.

The best judge of getting in is looking at their LSAT and GPA median. If you're above it, then you should be fine.
