I am a 164/3.2 and I applied. I didn't see a person accepted with those numbers on LSN this year. (I am expecting an outright rejection but I thought it was worth a shot.)

I was thinking of applying LEOP but I'm not sure if my numbers are good enough for even that. 158/3.16 :?

I have been told by several alums that the atmosphere is very competitive and not very positive. They said the job prospects are good and its well respected but that they did not enjoy the school... That would not bother some peopel though it just depends on what you are looking for in a school...


I heard that but then again also heard from a handful of (albeit old) alumni, they had a great time. It's hard not to enjoy SF. It's an amazing city. The relaxed grading policy they're implementing this year ought to change things too.

Man, I'm so anxious to hear back from Hastings. I have a 164/3.5, which seems to have worked out for a bunch of people this cycle. So far, I've only been accepted at U of Houston and I'm losing faith in Texas and GW.

Went "Complete" 1/7/09

Hastings took a while to start sending out decisions, so you may have a while to wait. You probably saw the 164 trend on LSN, so you have a good shot.

Good luck!

Yeah, Rotor, it looks like I may be in for the long haul. Thanks for the positive words though.

Does anyone know if they are going to have any accepted students events this spring? Or is it kind of a come at your own convenience deal?

Last year I applied in November, and didn't hear until March. So don't freak out yet. Good luck!

My numbers are 167/3.78. I went complete on 11/07/08. Haven't heard back yet. Weird? Normal?

Same thing happened to me last year. I waited until March, contacted the admissions office, and got in shortly thereafter. I think it's sort of a semi-YP, to gauge your actual interest in the school. You'll almost certainly get in eventually, though, so don't worry too much.

In today (letter dated 1/22). I went complete back in mid November but they don't start reviewing apps until Jan so I didn't expect to hear back until March. I talked to the admissions ppl earlier this week and they told me not to expect anything until March so I'm happy to have heard so early :) For those that are curious, I'm 158/3.56
