It's just when schools never send you notice of receiving a waiver (through mail or e-mail) and when you submit your app through LSAC it says that your fee has been waived.

It's typical not true that they never send you anything. Usually it just means they've input it into the system before you receive the email/mail notice.

+1 (although not specifically, in response to the informative post above, which I don't think implied that the never send anything)

Somebody a while ago was in the fee waiver roll call thread talking about how schools shouldn't do hidden fee waivers, how it wasn't to their advantage because no one would know and so no one extra would apply. S/he didn't understand that they almost always send you something eventually.

Yeah sorry. Never was not the best word choice. Sometimes you won't get anything at all and sometimes you will. When I applied I never got any mail from the schools that gave me hidden waivers so that's why I said that.
