I received it right before being accepted, so hopefully it's a good sign :)

Just make sure to show a lot of interest - I called when I didn't get a reply back to the email.

Good luck!!

From what it sounds like Hastings is having a lot of waitlist movement.

I don't know if I'd say end of the road, just keep showing interest even if they say not to call or email , get in contact. There's nothing to lose and I really think that's what sets people apart.

Hey guys, I don't think the 'final round of offers' phrasing means they are winding down offers. I got the exact same email before I was admitted off the waitlist two days later, and that was at the beginning of May. I wouldn't be too worried yet! Good luck guys!

Haha "limited time only!!!" style marketing tactic? Thanks for the confidence booster at least!

Just wanted to get some thoughts on this... I just got a scholarship upgrade at Brooklyn for 35.5k/year with top 80% stip. Do you think it's worth a shot to try to negotiate with this, or will they pretty much just laugh at this attempt? As of right now I haven't gotten my financial aid award, or notified whether I got a scholarship/grant yet, but I just got pulled off the waitlist back on May 23. I mean, the worst they can say is "no," I guess. Thoughts?

Did you send in the financial aid forms to Hastings? I'm surprised you haven't gotten your offer yet. I was admitted off the waitlist on a Friday night, submitted my financial aid forms on Monday, and had my offer Tuesday. I would send an email to financial aid and cc Dean Canada asking for an update and giving them all your scholarship offers.

Edit: Also, how long did you get to accept or reject the offer? I only had one week. Did you send in a deposit anyways?

Yea, I faxed over my form the day after I accepted the offer and paid the deposit... emailed financial aid yesterday, but haven't heard back from them yet. They gave me a week to accept or reject the offer, I think?

Definitely do it. Like you said, worst they can say is no. Which is why they said to me, but my Brooklyn scholarship was not nearly as generous as yours (I think I had a top 40% stip or something). Only drawback is it might not work. Hastings never budged when I had just the Brooklyn scholarship, but perked up when I let them know about UC Davis. Good luck!

Yea, definitely ended up being worth it. Gave me enough to convince me I'm gonna be attending.

I haven't seen any movement from Hastings after I received that email, even though I called them. Davis just accepted a bunch of people today (including me), so maybe they're waiting for people to respond to Davis before they offer anything?

So are any admits to Hastings still looking at other schools and may, therefore, withdraw? Any more waitlist movement? Still trying to keep this option (i'm WL) open until it's too late...

Looking for housing in the tower??

I'm a rising 2L who will probably be vacating my studio in the tower for next year. I will be making my decision in the next few days, and then letting them know. Most likely a 5th floor, very quiet (no construction noise!!) studio with three huge windows and lots of light will be available next year. I signed a lease for 1050 a month.

PM me if you are interested, and I will hook you up with Pansy (the housing manager) if I decide to move (very likely!!).

im kind of at a crossroads to be honest... I mean, is a bird in the hand worth two in the bush? Is there an easy way to ask for more fin aid to make the decision easier? haha
