They don't award any aid (merit or need-based) until you submit your FAFSA and their supplement --LinkRemoved--. The deadline is March 1st.
I dont know that this is necessarily true. I think you qualify for merit based aid regardless of whether or not you submit FAFSA. I sent an email and they said merit based aid will be given out at the end of this month.
Oooh, well thats exciting. Thanks for the update. I just kinda assumed because they always had the reputation of being pretty stingy with merit aid.
Just looked it up and saw this on their website:
UC Hastings awards more than $600,000 in scholarships to entering students. Other than the Patiño Fellowship listed below, there is no need to make a separate application for any entering student scholarship. Some admitted students will receive scholarship offers along with their letter of admission; additional scholarship awards will be made by letter in the middle of April.
A couple of them say "academic achievement and financial need" so I don't think the FAFSA will be a bad idea for schollys.
LSN looks like no one has gotten any scholarships yet though. Dunno if thats a good sign or bad sign.
