Asking for application fee waivers?
« on: June 25, 2008, 11:07:56 AM »
Has anyone here called or e-mailed schools and asked for fee waivers?  If so, how did the schools respond?  Do you feel that this hurt your chances of admission there?  How did you go about asking?  Any information would be helpful.

I am interested in this as well because since I only have 2 real primary choices I am looking at, I probably won't apply to too many more unless it doesn't cost me anything.  I know that if you are eligible for the LSAT fee waiver then you also are eligible for an application fee waiver at U of Kentucky.  Anyone who knows more about this, please let us know.

Follow-up question: Do you think that asking for one at one school would affect applications at another school?
