Last year I submitted around 10/20 and received an e-mail confirmation on 11/5. It definitely takes a while - I guess the office is closed now so it will be a while longer.

Thank you! I thought that might be it but I figured I'd ask :)

I'm guessing those of us who were not ED will hear something after the 15th of January which is the deadline for ED applicants to submit their deposit.

Just letting you guys know that Hastings is known for being really slow with getting back to you. I applied in October (RD) and heard back in late February, which was early for them. I think most people in the thread last year heard back in March. So if you don't hear anything for a while, it isn't necessarily bad news at all. That being said, some acceptances should start to trickle out now that school is starting back up again this Monday. Good luck!

Thanks for letting us know, ilovesf! March seems so far away...but if it's good news, I suppose it'll all be worth it!

I submitted my deposit today, and withdrew from the other schools I applied to. I am officially onboard!

The $150 ED deposit is the only one we need to send, right? Or do ED applicants also need to submit the $500 regular deposit as well?

Looking at LSN and the TLS thread from last year, I think we might be seeing some movement soon.

Good. Hastings is the only school that hasn't sent me an email or anything. Every other school has.

Hastings called me and asked if I would like to apply through the LEOP. I declined. I'd like to think that one of you who are interested in the program will be admitted instead :)

You are right. Hastings sent out an e-mail today confirming that was the only deposit needed for the Early Commitment Option (ECO) applicants.

I sent in my deposit a while ago, so I am guessing that they waited until the first business day after the deadline to message everyone at once. I wonder how many people were accepted (and sent in their deposits) from the ECO batch.

Since they are done with the ECO guys now, I would imagine that they will start letting the regular applicants know if they have been accepted. Last year they had been letting people know since January 10th.

Does Hastings have a status checker? I received my complete email but there was no mention of that in there.
