do schools just knock down your door and offer them to you?  do you need to have taken the LSAT already?  i would like some waivers..   >:(. those applications fees are looking pretty pricey and i'll take a chance and apply to a school if they're going to waive the fee.

usually you need an lsat score, yes. but we know people who took the december lsat and the waivers arrived promptly thereafter, so it isnt like youre too late.

junebug...I just decided about 5 weeks ago that I'd apply for law school this year...I went from clueless to not so clueless pretty darn quickly, don't worry...the amount of info, paranoia and overacievement on this board is pretty crazy.

I know that "just decided to go to law school thing" quite well. Last year I was finishing my undergrad and getting ready to start my grad work in political science, which I am doign now by the way. I signed up for and wandered in to take the LSAT not really knowing what to expect. After that I sort of put the LS thing on the back burner untill a week ago when I started going though to get applications in order. 

I also udnerstand the paranoia thing. I remember going into the LSAT and seeing people dressed in suits with a timer in front of them and about 20 some pencils. I felt awfly out of place given that I was wearing a step above sweats, had to scrounge around the car for pencils before the test and barely knew what I was getting into. To each there own though. I have to say though that site is an invaluable resource for undersnding this whole application process. he peopel here for the most part seem like very helpful and nice people who are very knowledgable about LS aplications.
