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.
