So I contact LSAC and told them that I thought that something might be wrong with my account.  They reset something and thus far I've gotten an email waiver from UCLA.  So even though the waiver thing is a toss up and not everyone gets something, if you haven't gotten ANYTHING you may want to check with them.

I know my score is low but it was just weird that I wasn't receiving anything and apparently there was a problem.  Just wanted to let people know.

Also, for what it is worth, I sent out some applications tonight and found some hidden fee waivers.

WUSTL, Vanderbilt, Baylor were all being coy.

WUSTL and Vanderbilt emails came today for me so only Baylor is the remaining coy school.

Magnifique,

If your LSN page is accurate, you have a billion fee waivers, why the complaints?

My LSAC fee waiver was denied and I hadn't received anything via CRS, so I started begging...er..um...asking schools for waivers  :-\

Most are need-based... ;)

So how do these "hidden fee waivers" work? How would I know if I had one? Just apply and be pleasantly surprised when they don't request my credit card information?

Pretty much!  You can check and see if you have one by moving your app to the shopping cart where it will calculate your totals (you can do that with out submitting it).

NYU's waiver came to my house in the mail. I only know this because I ask my parents to open all law-school related mail that comes for me.

FYI:  I received a Michigan and Baylor snail mail fee waiver offer by snail mail over the weekend.  Michigan has been reported, but I haven't seen Baylor reported.
