I never really post on TLS, but I got in via phone last Monday. :D It looks like some current Hastings students have visited this thread... are any of you still out there? If so, can I PM you? I'm still waiting on a few decisions, but I'm very seriously considering Hastings and would love to bother you for info/opinions if you have the time.

Good luck to all those still waiting and congrats to all others who are in!


sure

Is Hastings as big on GPA as some other cali schools? I'm well above their 75% LSAT but below the 25% GPA

Got the call this evening, too!

Really took me by surprise to get it this early. I didn't apply until after I got my December LSAT score (so around January 7 or so), and everyone told me that Hastings is notoriously slow with decisions. Really happy either way.

are you at/above 75th percentile? that is SUPER quick... i just finished today, so not expecting any time soon obviously, but after hearing horror stories about USD (my second choice) which is notoriously slow, this is nice to hear.




also.... seems like most people who got called are at/above 165ish and 3.75... anyone lower than that have good news? i'm 164/3.66 and (yes i know this was dumb) very late in the cycle...

I'm not sure what their percentiles are exactly, but our numbers are also pretty similar (166, 3.69). I'd agree that you have a very good chance. :)

Hastings prefers LSAT over GPA, if your GPA is above 3.6ish and have at least a 164, you'll almost certainly get accepted. If your LSAT is 165 or more you could probably get in w/ a GPA as low as 3.3 or so.

Phone call from the Dean two hours ago. In.

He didn't say anything about money (though he said there would be information on "scholarships" in the package I receive) and I thought it would be rude to ask. But judging from the threads, it looks like it's something they don't bring up on the phone call.

Also in via voicemail at 3 PM Pacific time. Definitely one of the more personalized acceptance calls I've gotten.

167/3.7 Submitted November 1st.

Since I'm already in San Francisco, may stop by on a random day for a tour. :)

Congrats to everyone else admitted and good luck to everyone waiting!
