I've gotten a handful of PMs asking about Hastings (at least some of which were from posters ITT), so I thought I would post here and answer questions together instead of one-at-a-time over PM.
I'm Hastings class of '14, I had a very positive experience, and I'm happy to talk about it when I have the time.
Just to be clear: I had a positive experience, but I would never recommend Hastings over any of the T14; if you have a clearly better option you should take it. However, if the t14 are not an option for you, I think Hastings has a lot to offer, especially in terms of an alumni network in the Bay Area/California.
I also want to be clear that many people have had negative experiences at Hastings; I am making no claim that negative experiences do not happen.
At any rate, if anyone has Qs I'll do my best to answer them.
I guess I'd just repeat my question from higher up on the thread. For those choosing a law school, what are some pros for Hastings other than location? My biggest concern is that it doesn't seem like anyone likes the school for anything other than location. But I'd love to hear your perspective! -Thanks!
