Any clues as to getting a fee waiver without a LSAT score?
« on: October 30, 2008, 03:21:01 PM »
Loyola admissions was kind enough to grant me one with an invitation to one of their law forum. Frankly, I do not have enough $ to apply to schools I have in mind. LSAC fee waiver is not an option because I do not meet the citizenship requirement. Anyone have some success stories?

I have gotten waivers without even mentioning my LSAT score...they're all need-based.

If this is the case for you, you can contact the schools and spell out your financial circumstances.  There have been more than a few that have given me a waiver.

Hope this helps.

Did you write a letter or an email?

Brooklyn Law School does not charge an application fee.

Neither does Washington and Lee if you apply online
Best of luck to everyone!
