That said, my application contains much more than a low LSAT score, and I was heavily recruited by Hastings (if you call several emails inviting me to the info session and to apply over the course of this cycle heavy). But more importantly, I would be a great addition to the law school, and maybe Hastings feels the same way. So, I'm not going to draw from last year's experience (0-8), or some other student's experience who received a lot of rejections.
We'll all learn our fate soon enough. My point is simply don't rule me out just because of my LSAT score.
Stranger things have probably happened, but you sound like you're getting your hopes up about this, and I don't think that's wise. While I'm sure you have great softs, and I think softs are more important than TLS "wisdom" would have you believe, your numbers generally still have to be in the ballpark to receive legitimate consideration. And a 136 LSAT is just really, really bad.
Admissions can sometimes be confusing and mysterious, and many schools will send you e-mails soliciting your application and selling their programs, but... I dunno, just don't get your hopes up. If you really want Hastings, your best bet is probably gonna be to improve that LSAT.
