Can someone let me know how to find hidden fee waivers? I've been notified of some, but I'm not sure how to find them or potential hidden waivers on Lsac. Thanks in advance!

You were notified of hidden fee waivers?  That's a contradiction in terms.

As has been stated ad nauseum on this thread, you go on LSAC and act as though you're submitting your application until it tells you how much it will cost or tells you the fee has been waived.

Received Duke fee waiver and priority track invitation about 10 minutes ago.  Have also gotten Columbia, UVA, W&M, W&L, St. Thomas, Baylor, and Alabama thus far, all in the last two days.

Also, I was just checking for hidden fee waivers and found I have one for Michigan, one of my top choices.

How does this work? Where was the fee waiver hiding?

I checked my email to see if I was lucky enough to get the Duke waiver and sure enough I have a new email...

Oklahoma City University School of Law inviting me to chat  :'(

This has been stated earlier in this thread, but basically:  log on to LSAC. Go to Applications and pick a school.  Fill out at least part of the application.  Click on 'Continue' on the bottom of the page.  It will warn you about not attaching any documents.  Disregard, because you're going to be cancelling out later anyway.  On the next page Preview your document then hit Continue again.  On this page it should either be asking for your application fee OR it will inform you you have received a fee waiver.  Click Send Later on the bottom of the screen, unless you want to send in your application partially filled in with no PS, resume, or anything else, heh.

It's "hidden" because I haven't received any mail or email from Michigan about a fee waiver yet.  It's very possible that I will be notified in the near future though.

ManTGeo, you should post the procedure for finding a hidden fee waiver in the 1st post so people can just respond "Read the 1st post" when the question is asked over and over again in the future.

It appears the policies are:

UVA- GPA over 3.7/3.75 OR LSAT over 171/172
Georgetown- GPA over 3.7/3.75 AND LSAT 169/170

Can't be.  My numbers are above both of those and I didn't get Georgetown.
