Rejected today. Ah well, wasn't really expecting to get in, more hoping, so. Good luck to everyone else!

I feel the same way. Not from CA, but would have loved to move to SF. Stats are 3.35/167...super surprised and really disappointed, but oh well! On to the next...

This is definitely YP.

Do you think a letter of interest would help. I live here with my partner and son and would really benefit staying here. i am kind of in shock still :(

Definitely. I would say that in the letter too so they know you want to stay in SF and will attend if admitted. A ton of people were admitted of the WL last year with GPAs around yours but a few LSAT points lower. Good luck!!

Did you tell them this already in your PS/WhyHastings?

I think you should definitely try a LOCI either way. My friend was living in Davis and he was stuck on the Davis WL till June, but he sent a LOCI and another LOR and he got in eventually.

Do you have anything to add to your Resume or another potential recommender?

I have fall grades that will bump my GPA. They should get those within a week or so. I also have a Cali Supreme Court Judicial Internship and a teaching gig at SF State. I tried to send this new resume a couple weeks ago but they said they don't take new info. that was before the wl though so idk.

I'm still so sad though...for a few reasons

1. Hastings was one of my top choices, and would consider going before other 'better' (higher ranked) schools
2. I probably won't get in to said 'better' schools
3. Financing law school is going to be a big issue for me, and from the waitlist page it seemed that if you were accepted off the waitlist you had to commit right away...which to me says any aid or scholarships won't be given or won't be comparable to what I've already been offered (so basically this is a rejection, unless they call with an amazing offer)

I just wanted to be able to balance my choices, Hastings wasn't even a safety for me, it was a goal...bleh :( hopefully tomorrow will bring better things! (This totally broke my heart though :cry: )

Does anyone when/if Hastings takes LOCIs at all? The email they sent us was pretty adamant that we do not call or email regarding the waitlist, I'm wondering if this policy extends towards LOCIs as well.

Yeah, I'm not gonna lie, I started lol'ing pretty hard when I looked at the estimated cost per year. That's pretty hefty :shock:

I applied 12/16 and got my application received/complete email 1/03. They take a while.

Definitely. I would say that in the letter too so they know you want to stay in SF and will attend if admitted. A ton of people were admitted of the WL last year with GPAs around yours but a few LSAT points lower. Good luck!!

i was reading over the wait last year and it looks like people were terrified to send additional documents even when waitlisted. can you speak to that? i have significant changes but don't want to piss them off or anything.

I really dislike that we have to make the decision of whether or not we want to attend as soon as (if) we get off the WL :? .

IF I get in I will be out of the country at the time. Does that mean I have to designate my person AND give them the ability to say YES or NO on the phone if they call? They can't even call me to let me know and let me think about it? :|
