IngotLSAT Fee Waivers

The Law School Admission Council (LSAC) established the fee waiver program in 1968 to assure that no person is denied access to law school because of the absolute inability to pay for the LSAT and other essential applicant services. Today each approved fee waiver entitles the bearer to two LSATs, one registration with LSAC’s Credential Assembly Service (CAS), four law school reports included with CAS, and more. To find out more details including eligibility requirements visit the LSAC website.
