Anyone have any anecdotal evidence for fee waivers for December test takers?

No, but you can just email the admissions office, give them your hard and soft factors, and ask them if they can waive your application fee based on merit. I did this successfully at quite a few schools -- even reaches.

I already got a ton by asking for financial fee waivers, just wondering if I might get anything else that I might consider.

I was wondering the same thing.  I begged for enough of my waivers...I just want one good one to be handed to me this cycle lol, even if I've already applied  :D

Does emailing the admissions office really work?  My LSAT is above the 75th percentile for a bunch of schools that I'm applying to.

Brown Sugah and I both got financial, not merit, fee waivers.  But yes, some schools will give merit fee waivers if you ask.

I received emails from Northwestern, Santa Clara, Minnesota, Tulsa, South Carolina, Conn., St. Louis, and hidden waiver from WUSTL.

Oh, I got SLU too...something about a 1993 (or whatever year/number lol) scholarship program.  Probably not applying anywhere lower than the highest ranked school that I've been accepted to at this point (especially since I have a full scholarship there).  I haven't even applied to any New York schools since I have no desire to live or move to NYC but.... :-* Columbia lol
