Just got an e-mail asking if I am still interested in staying on the waitlist. Did everyone just get this?!

Nope :( I was hoping for it all day based on what happened in previous years but it was not to be. What were y'alls numbers who did get it?

So does anyone know what kind of scholarship money is generally offered to those accepted off the WL?

Several students in last years thread who got in off of the waitlist received grants of varying amounts, so I would assume you could expect something.

Also, thanks to those who know they won't be going to Hastings and have withdrawn. Anyone get a call yet?

Congrats! Did you receive the email recently and, if so, when? How long do you have to decide?

Anyone consider sending an LOCI? I know the waitlist website says they don't want any communication via email/phone, but if it gets later in the cycle I think I just might send mine in. A few people sent LOCI's last year and were still admitted. Thoughts?

:D :) :( :shock:

They don't give you any merit aid. I only know one person who came off the waitlist last year and got money (and that's because they were already attending the summer program at Cardozo and personally asked for scholarship money.) It's very rare.

However, you can get up to ~15.5K in "Hastings Grants." These are need-based. If you don't have much need expect somewhere in the high single digits. If you're really poor then expect the full amount. Almost everyone gets a "Hastings Grant." They are renewable and tend to increase with tuition hikes.

Either way, it does almost nothing to cover the COA.

Yes, send one. I sent a LOCI through snail mail, and was admitted off the waitlist this cycle.

Got in off the WL, got some merit aid, not much, but there is some hope that it happens.

Maybe Hastings finally realized that the amount of aid that people get can substantially impact which school they will attend and decided to get in the game.

That's one excellent LSAT score. I'm somewhat surprised you weren't accepted outright -- even with the low GPA.

I was admitted off the waitlist last week as well. Still waiting on financial aid info, they said in an email today that I should be receiving it soon!

I'm confused about the waitlist. Do you have to deposit the $500 immediately when they call or do you get some time?
