Oh ok. Well I feel like I'm missing the fee waiver boat. Anyways, good luck on your apps.

No worries!  If you feel like you qualify and are having trouble paying app fees, talk to your financial aid office.  Many schools also offer need-based aid applications (GW, W&M, and NE, for example), that you can request.  Call the schools you're looking at and ask them about your options. So far i've only encountered one school (UMd) that does not offer NB fee waivers. Do it early, though!  Apparently most schools only offer a limited number. GL!

I don't see why not coquita, esp. since he is full- so there is no question you are well above "the line" to be considered NA.

If your direct relative has documentation, then you can easily get documentation from your tribe and you will have no problem.  Not all tribes are federally recognized, so I'm not sure how law schools deal with this issue.  I'm sure they still enjoy the diversity, but I'm not sure they get to count it in their all-important diversity numbers.
