Where should I go next fall? / Fee Waivers
« on: October 28, 2008, 10:49:12 AM »
What is the correlation between being offered a few waiver and the chances of being accepted at a school? With a 157 on the lsat in October and a 3.9 gpa, I do not understand why the University of Virginia sent me an email saying, "You have an impressive record and we'd like you to apply, so we've waived your $75 application fee. The fee waiver will be applied automatically when you submit the LSAC e-app."

I do not attend an impressive school and I am not a URM, so I am perplexed by this. I wouldn't expect a fee waiver from Cooley with my unimpressive numbers.

Where should I go next fall? / Residency for tuition at UNC
« on: October 02, 2008, 01:02:45 PM »
Today, I talked to an admission's counselor concerning my belief that I am a North Carolina resident. I was born and raised in NC and I graduated from high school in NC. However, for the last three years I have attended college in Florida. Each summer, I return home to NC, and my license and insurance is still from North Carolina. The counselor stated that because I have not lived in North Carolina for the last 12 consecutive months that I would not be considered. Should I try to challenge this, or do you think think it would hurt my chances of being accepted?
