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


No status checker.

I received two emails (one on the 13th and one today) informing me that the application is complete. Same email too. Not sure why.

I'm pretty sure this is the first round of anyone who has heard anything. I wouldn't be worried quite yet.

in via phone call from dean of admissions last night! i kinda only applied to hastings as a back up in case i decided i wanted to stay in san francisco (born and raised in the bay area, lived in SF proper for the past 7 years or so), but the more i look at the school, the more appealing it has become. i have heard they don't give much in the way of scholarship money, but i'm keeping my fingers crossed for something. have a couple of nice scholarships from some decent schools, but not sure if i want to relocate to the east coast yet. any 1Ls know if hastings will negotiate?

for what it's worth...164/3.63.

I spoke with Hastings admissions yesterday, as I'm contemplating throwing an app their way. He said, unsurprisingly, that he couldn't discuss my chances at a scholarship, as a matter of policy. He also said that they do give some scholarships but, at most, this amounts to half tuition. I would apply if I could get a fee waiver, but they won't give me one. Already safely in at Northwestern so I would only consider Hastings if I got a half-ride, but I'm an extreme splitter so I do not think it is likely. Probably just going to save the $80.

Complete conjecture: with your numbers, you might get a scholarship, but it wouldn't be close to the half-ride maximum.

Question: Are they calling from an SF area code? Or do they have a blocked number? Just so we can all be prepared. :D

They called at 3:55 and I live in SC. Maybe they're calling east coast first since it's getting past business hours here.

why would you ever consider Hastings over NU even with half scholarship? the difference is like night and day

Same admit story! Too bad I probably won't go since they offer very little merit aid, but it was a really cool phone call.

3.5/166, chances for scholly?

Accepted via phone call from Dean Canada today. Very cool personal touch as I could tell he really read through my file as he touched on a lot of the stuff I've been involved in and what I talked about in my personal statement. I'm very excited to go up for a visit at some point!

Congrats to everyone who got in!

Beachbum, when I went up last fall to look around, they were an amazing group. The student guided tour was great, and the professors were friendly and really knowledgeable. The students even stopped to talk with me, which was a very pleasant surprise in and of itself. I hope you get a chance to visit!

acceptance letter came today via snail mail. (160/3.9) normal sized envelope... kind of had me worried it was a rejection letter.
