Although it’s nothing groundbreaking, if you’re looking for law schools that you can apply to on the cheap, there’s an easy way that doesn’t require a fee waiver. Granted, this limits you, because instead of you choosing the school it’s schools that have decided to temporarily waive their application fee.
It may be worth a shot though. It’s easy enough. Simply log into your LSAC account and search for law schools via the school’s that are members link. When you get the map of the United States just click on the state. In the right hand portion where the cost of the applications are, any that have temporarily waived their fees will show up as $0. Granted, you have to click on each state that you’re looking at, but if you’re just trying to cast a broad net it may come in handy.
