I received my admit email the same day as when the status checker changed to 'decision rendered,' but I do remember seeing people say on past threads that it took longer for them. I guess I was lucky! Good luck everyone!

Hastings really is taking their time this year! UR since mid-Jan, seems like it's usually faster than this. Sincerely, impatient :roll:

Checking in. Went 'Decision rendered" on Feb 1st, says to expect an email within 10 days but thus far, there has been no movement (checked spam folder as well). Should I be worried?

Yes, Hastings offers schollys up to full, though usually only with a competing full offer from another school.

Did you get an email specifically that you went under UR, or did you just see it under status checker?

What is the deal with the scholarships being 'confidential'? Can we not use their offer to negotiate?

When did you apply? I applied in early December and am still under review. I find it strange that I haven't had a status change since December 6th.
LSAT: 159
GPA: < 25%
Really great softs, 3 years out of undergrad.

I dont have a response but confidential is pretty clear in its definition. You are not supposed to share the number which means you'll have to be vague in your negotiations.

When they say scholarship is confidential like how will they know that you told? Do they really crack down on this?

I used mine to negotiate. Nothing happened and I got a bump.
