Also, on the mascot thing- we only technically have a mascot. The administration isn't a big fan of the mascot, and I've never really heard anyone refer to us as the Sharks.
"Congratulations once again on your acceptance to UC Hastings. It gives me great pleasure to inform you that you have been chosen to receive a renewable $13,000 UC Hastings Scholarship. This award is being given to you based on a variety of factors including financial need, your academic and professional accomplishments, and your potential to contribute to the UC Hastings community and the legal profession
. The scholarship is renewable for up to six semesters provided you maintain satisfactory academic progress (which at UC Hastings is defined as at least a 2.20 cumulative grade point average) and continue to qualify for federal aid.* The total value of this scholarship during your three years at UC Hastings law is $39,000."
Is this the same as what everyone else received? Doesn't sound like there's any distinction made between need-based and merit-based.
