It means that the school has tried to request your report, but you have not paid for enough reports, so it will not be sent until you pay $12.

I was afraid of that.  Thought I had counted correctly but I guess not.  So once I've paid, will the report be sent automatically or will the school be notified and then try requesting again?

I'm not sure. The reason I knew the answer is because I sent in an app to Wash. U in St. Louis because of a fee waiver, but after receiving a few acceptances I decided to withdraw my app.  I called them and told them to withdraw, but apparently they still requested my report. So because I didn't pay for that report the code R8 appeared.

It seems that if your report has been requested then once you have paid the $12 LSAC should send it out. Don't quote me on this but that seems fair.

Definitely seems fair.  When I went to pay the fee it notified me that I had a balance of $12 for an unpaid report. So, that makes sense.  But, it has yet to send it out.  Maybe it'll take a day and will send it out in the morning.  Fingers crossed.
