FWIW i asked for one yesterday and got an email this morning approving it.  So there is hope! I just explained my financial situation (not good!) and told them my stats and got a very nice email back from the asst dean of admissions. best of luck to you!

Which school? If you'd prefer not say say, then what is the range? T14? T30?

I am just wondering because it seems like schools are more willing to give fee waivers the lower they are ranked.

I was actually wondering how the fee waivers worked...It seems like a lot of people with the same LSAT score as me (170) got a bunch of fee waivers that I didn't, like Michigan, Georgetown, Cornell, etc. Are these all merit based or need based?
