Just requested off work to attend that day. A drink would be a solid idea after the long day.

I haven't gotten my package, just the call last week. I was told that they were having a couple of ASW's. I know one is on March 24th. When is the other?

I want to go back in time, slap myself, remove the beer from my hand and hand myself a course schedule.

3.92/3.96 JR/SR year barely brought my GPA up to over a 3.5 and I was taking 20-23 units a quarter. Stupid. Stupid. Stupid.

I had my share of bad. My first years of college in another country was terrible due to series of unfortunate events. Very low grades, some F and drops, but when I came to US, I started over again, new undergrad - straight As and 1 B. The two years coursework outside the US was not calculated in my LSDAS GPA.

It honestly is a little unfair... Shit, it was our first year of college, give us a break, we were 18 and were away from our parents for the first time, of course we lived a little and our grades suffered because of it. Ya, I'm in the exact same boat, my GPA per semester went like this:
3.07/3.36/3.5/3.46/Now I start trying and realize how important my grades are in my junior year once I got all the ridiculous partying out of my system. 3.79/4.0/3.7/3.8

Nope. I hadn't heard anything until I received the small envelope in the mail this afternoon. It contained a single page letter signed by Dean Canada.

Dean Canada called me this afternoon! He mentioned specific quotes from my personal statement and seemed to be familiar with my entire application. It was definitely a big positive for Hastings!

Waitlist here. Anyone on the waitlist taking any action at this point? Or is the general consensus to wait to hear back from Hastings? I know the email said that they "appreciate if we don't call or email regarding the waitlist."

Although I'm not familiar with anything Hastings specific, I would not wait to hear from them. If you are still interesting in attending. I would write a LOCI and send it via snail mail. But only if you have good substantial things to say about the school itself. Particular programs you are interested in, reasons you feel you will excel there, so on and so forth. Basically don't just say "I would still like to go there if accepted".

Good luck!

They don't award any aid (merit or need-based) until you submit your FAFSA and their supplement --LinkRemoved--. The deadline is March 1st.
