Updated this sucka with final information. Law school sure is fun.

ADDITIONAL INFO & UPDATES

09-07-2007: Merit-based fee waiver at Duke.
09-23-2007: GPA down 0.01 after LSAC finished processing it. For those of you interested in its accuracy, the LSAC GPA calculator on lawpad estimated it at 3.74.
10-05-2007: Mailed Stanford's certification letter. So the 10-01-2007 listed as "sent" may be slightly inaccurate.

Note that the "received" date for Columbia and the "complete" date for Duke are estimations based on when I was notified of completion and decision (respectively). I also take into account when they requested LSDAS reports.
Update: This also applies to Berkeley's "received" date.

You should get fee waivers from at least a few top 14 (including Duke). And yes, to TLS PM.

Actually, no pun intended, I tweaked my numbers a little (just enough for privacy) so we're closer than you think, unless you did the same thing! :)

Stanford is the only school that requires Dean's Certification before you apply, correct?

How did Berkeley notify you that you were complete? I sent my application in at about the same time as you and haven't heard anything from them. They said they'll send an email. Did you get one? Thanks
