I will be a joint degree student with UC Berkeley
I will be studying at another law school

So, has anyone else checked this out? Will checking the first lock me into Hastings or not?


I checked the first box. I'm nearly 100% sure that it will not "lock" you in. The only reason I say "nearly" is in case of the off chance that I'm wrong.

But in reality, nothing "locks" you in at Hastings, other than attending classes and getting grades. Even paying a seat deposit and actually getting financial aid doesn't lock you in; you can always withdraw before the start of classes, even if you've already paid your full tuition. Usually there is a refund schedule available somewhere on the school web page (I believe typically schools give 100% refund, less non-refundable seat deposit, if you withdraw before classes begin).

All of these other details I've merely included to provided context. I think the short answer is that at the start of the semester at Hastings, if you wind up attending, you will be a full time regular student. The form assumes you will be attending; of course, your personal circumstances will determine whether or not this happens.

As long as you never gave them your credit card number then I wouldn't worry about being "locked" in.

Even if you did, you have a recourse for unauthorized charges.

THIS. Nothing about the form locks you in, it's simply means of them offering you an aid package. The key word here is "offering." The school recommends accepted students fill out the aid forms. I got an e-amail from financial aid saying the average need-based grant for this year would be between 13-16000 dollars. Who doesn't want a piece of that action? So I recommend filing for aid even if you aren't sure if you're attending.

What is this about an account? Which account? Where? I'm already admitted. Should I have an account? Maybe I made one already and don't remember...???

Thanks! :) I assume you go to Hastings now?? If you don't mind me asking, how do you like it? I live in SF now and would love to stay, but I've heard mixed things about the quality of life at Hastings.

Yep! I'm a 2L. I generally like Hastings. My complaints mainly stem from the economy. The quality of life is probably the same as any other law school, only you get to live in one of the best cities in the world.
