I'm In Ur Process, Gettin My Fees Waived

What's proper protocol for asking for a fee waiver from a law school?  It's going to be thin financially for me just getting to visit my top three or four schools, and I'm not looking forward to the $60 app fee plus LSAC fees plus the pint of blood for the scholarship applications.

Some schools have waiver info and forms on their websites. If not, you could call/email the schools you're going to apply to and ask what their procedure is.

It might not be a bad idea to send your GPA & LSAT to schools where you are over the 75th percentile for both numbers. I've heard of people having success doing this, and they recieved merit based fee waivers from schools that don't regularly offer them through LSAC's CRS.
