If it makes you all feel better, after taking the Sep07 LSAT, I signed up for a fee waiver about a week before the results were to come out. Imagine my surprise, when I received an email 2 days before the release with subject "LSAT SCORE," only to find out that they would not be giving me my score until the waiver app decision was complete. Then, they didn't send me the decision status (which was "pending") until a week after that. So after sending them more info, I waited another week or so for the decision, received that decision by email and STILL wasn't able to see my score. I called them and they said it would go up at at 1am, once the system updated itself. And of course, at 1, no score. So I finally manage to fall asleep and receive my pitiful score by email in the morning, 2.5 weeks after everyone had gotten theirs.
Moral: never everrrrrrrr sign up for fee waivers right after the test.
