Fee Waivers Roll in...
« on: January 03, 2007, 10:14:03 AM »
Should I send in more apps?  I have already sent out a bunch of apps, but due to the Dec LSAT I guess some schools are somewhat interested.  So should I send out more apps to the T1 schools I'm getting waivers from?

You mean you haven't applied to every school already?  You seem to have quite a few...

don't apply to a school you wouldn't go to.  But I guess if you have the 12 bucks and you like the school go for it.

I received one via email and one by snail mail.  The snail mail came to my permanent address, I haven't been able to check my school mailbox, since I'm at home.  So I have no idea if I have gotten any from other schools.

Do you guys know if you can get a refund if you get a waiver from a school you already applied to?

Applied retroactively.

Here is a link with some info: http://www.lawschooldiscussion.org/prelaw/index.php/topic,69209.0.html

I think it just depends on the school.  Some say explicitly on their sites that they won't refund the fee if they later send you a waiver, while others might just cut you a check after they send the waiver.

Yes.  Contact the school.  I got a fee waiver from Oregon after I applied.  I called em up and they said they'd send a check (which I have yet to see, btw, Oregon!).

Nice, thanks. Guess I should have searched myself. :)
