Recieving Fee Waivers and Invitations to Apply
« on: March 21, 2005, 03:34:48 PM »
What up everybody,

If a school sends you a fee waiver and invites you to apply, is that a very strong indicator that you'll get accepted? I'm curious because I've been getting a bunch of emails/letters/packets from various law schools in recent weeks encouraging me to apply and mentioning that i qualify for scholarships.

Nope. Just a way to bump up their application numbers.

If you have a really high LSAT relative to thier 25-75% it means they are trying to attract you.

If you have a mild or low LSAT compared to theirs, it means they will almost definitely reject you.  It is part of the USNWR numbers game.

EXAMPLE : me 2.57/152 fee waivers to Washington and Lee, George Mason and Richmond all three I could not get admitted if my Dad were the dean.  But then again, my Dad's an a-hole.

Worked for Berkeley, but I'll let you know how the Yale thing works out (ha!).

I quite possibly received a fee waiver and/or invitation to apply from every school ranked 9 or lower. I haven't heard from a few of them. Some outcomes: George Mason and Bloomington waitlisted me. UC Hastings rejected me. UHLC let me in and gave me a scholarship. Miami let me in after deferring me.All of those schools are out of my league. You never know with those crazy things.

I got one from NU the other day, I tossed it out. Kent has sent 3 already. Don't these people ever give up?

not really. usually they just want to make sure they have the maximum number of what they consider to be qualified applicants for their school.
