October Lsat Fee Waivers
« on: June 16, 2005, 10:28:17 AM »
Hi, just looking for some info. I will be taking the Lsat in October, was in Europe for June Lsat and so missed it.
I want to apply asap after October Lsat but was wondering about the fee waivers that schools send out if they like your numbers.
 How soon after scores are released do they send out fee waivers? Should I just apply early and forget fee waivers or should I wait to see if I get any?
 When are the waivers normally sent out. Thanks in advance to people who answer me questions!!

A.

You'd start getting them in November.

After taking the October '04 test, I started receiving fee waivers in November, running through January. Cornell actually sent a waiver in February.

I started getting mine via email only a few days after the results were out; others came snail mail, though most I was interested in came in the month of November.  (Upon the suggestion of my UG school, I submitted all my apps prior to Thanksgiving...)

I got a few the day after I received my LSAT score.  They really pick up in November and hit peak after Thanksgiving before declining in the winter.

Does anyone know if those of us who took the LSAT in October will still get fee waivers for the next year's cycle (i.e. mailed out in August of the next year)?

I think you have to make sure that your LSAC account reflects the correct year of application.  I don't remember how to do this, but given that sometimes people take the test years in advance, I believe it is possible.  (I have also heard some stuff about that on this site--though I would recommend simply calling LSAC and asking them, "How can I make sure you know I'm applying for X year, so that schools can make sure to send me waivers?")

Is there anyway to get the fee waivers before the Oct LSAT?

no. schools don't send them unless they know your LSAT score.

If you took the test in June, they might come out sooner.  But as someone who took the October sitting, I couldn't tell you if they start sending them out earlier (IE as soon as applications become available and the "season" starts).
