Yeah. Did not hear anything from Hastings until I got that letter yesterday. Also, the acceptance is a single sheet of paper, so it totally looks like a rejection at first glance.
also, does anyone know how/if/when we find out about scholly info?
I've been told that scholarship info would be given out in late March as the priority deadline for the FAFSA for committed students is March 4th.
I think the fact that Hastings generally does not give out scholarships with their original acceptances goes along with their strategy of spreading aid throughout the class rather than giving large scholarships to fewer candidates. For the class of 2015, $12 million was distributed amongs over 80% the class. I think Hastings likes to get a better idea of what their class make-up is looking like before they send out scholarship offers.
This style could benefit the median number applicants this year because with less students, if aid stays constant, I would expect the median numbers students to get a little more cash. I guess the big if is that aid stays constant; I'm not really sure how likely that is.
