So you have to pay another $100 for LSDAS?
« on: June 28, 2006, 04:32:54 PM »
Ok, maybe I'm stoopid, but I couldn't figure out why I was unable to "request transcripts" on the LSAC web system.  I've entered in my undergrad info, and I've checked every possible box saying that I want to share my info, etc.

And now I just noticed some screen that does say something about a $100 or so fee for LSDAS distinct from any testing fees.  And, although one's data will be kept for a certain amount of time, no action (ie. reviewing transcripts) will happen unless the LSDAS fee is paid.

Have I got it right?

Yup, it's stupid. And then 12 bucks a pop for your applications on top of the app fees.

It's part of why I haven't signed up for it yet... I'm moving right now, I don't have the spare hundred bucks!

yeah.  and i know they always say that the cost of applying is negligible comprared to the cost of attending, but it still pisses me off.  i mean, that's $100 worth of alcohol i could be drinking right now to while away the time before tomorrow.

I dont know about other schools, but I had to pay Penn State 6 bucks just to send my transcript.  That was pretty fun.

Yeah. One of mine is either 5 or 15, I forget which.

The other two? They're free.

The irony is, the one that costs me is the grad school one I'd like to forget, except I'm applying to their law school.

Hey Dusya - Thanks :) I missed you all too. 

To tell the truth, it was a little freakin' intense for me - waiting for the June results, reading the daily discussion of it.

And then trying to have a real life, of course!  My day job can be nearly as stressful - I own a little music performance space:  http://greenfabric.com

How are you holding up?
