In via e-mail! I have yet to fill out Need Access (or FAFSA) although it's completion is required for considerations for need based AND merit based scholarships. I've been holding off until I file my taxes, which I would like to do ASAP, but am waiting on my W-2/other financial statements. Is this a bad idea?

I'm holding off until my taxes are done, too.
Maybe that's why I haven't been accepted yet.

Damn you to hell, Cal!
I know that it doesn't have anything to do with their acceptance, from the sheer number of other posters accepted without complete FAFSA/Need Aid. I'm just going to be a sullenly angry misfit until I hear from them, one way or the other. My need for validation through law school acceptances is reaching a boiling point.

In today as well, congrats. I'm also waiting on the FAFSA until I file my taxes, still need to get a W2 from my employer.

Thanks!! Are you a Hastings 1L or 2L or 3L? Any thoughts or advice for us?

I'm a 3L. When I was a 1L I made a Hastings Students Taking Questions thread, so there is a lot of advice there. I am also happy to answer any questions you guys may have.

SF is (mostly) very nice and helpful, in my experience.

This no scholarship business motivated me to complete my tax returns this evening....whew...that was 2.5 hours of work, but I need to know if UCH will give me anything otherwise sticker would be difficult to swallow...

Did anyone who got in also apply for LEOP?
Wondering if this may affect acceptance timeframe....

Does anyone know if Hastings offers travel reimbursements for admitted student days? I'm always looking for an excuse to visit the area and I'd love to be able to attend.

Hey all, also accepted this Tuesday. I'm waiting to fill out my NeedAccess until my taxes are filed (waiting on my W2) but was curious if anyone knew about how much merit-based aid Hastings typically gives out? I've heard from some that they're rather stingy but can I expect any aid as someone who is above both medians?

Does anyone know when Hastings typically start admitting off their waiting list?
