I was under that impression too, but I found a few data points in my range over the years. I should be good for a fee waiver. I just found my numbers twin on LSN. http://lawschoolnumbers.com/whimsical
His/Her cycle played out quite well. This makes me happy. My only concern is how valid NU is going to consider charity/self employment.
Assuming you were self-employed near full-time and making money, that's work experience, and the charity stuff is nice too. It's probably not an amazing soft generally speaking, but NU will count it.
Whimsical seems to be an especially strong applicant, not par for the course. Looks like she put some serious work into her application, diversity statement, why essays etc. Good lesson for all of us.
So yeah, just apply everywhere man. ED to UVA on day 1 if you really want to be there (otherwise low odds, unless they need some 170s off the waitlist late in the game), but looks like NU is a good bet and you'll have some other really good options.
