haven't heard anything re financial aid, but if you go to financial aid website and click on "Your Award Letter" even though it doesn't look like a link, it will ask you to create a log-in, and if they complete your aid package, it will probably be on that site before they notify you via mail/e-mail. Just a guess here.

The link is on the main financial aid website, but here's the direct link to your electronic award letter:

--LinkRemoved--

after you log in and you get this message "We were unable to locate your information. Please contact YEA Support at 1.877.477.7537" I'm guessing your award info is not up yet.

Let me know if it works...

Hey, to those still awaiting a decision, or even those of you who have received your decisions: have you received an email saying that your application is under review? I heard some other people saying they did, but I didn't think Hastings did that.

Ah, I'm just anxious. Anyone want to place a bet on the latest one of us still pending will hear from Hastings in an attempt to make this long ass process a little more interesting?

Dear XXXX,

Thank you for applying to the University of California, Hastings College of the Law.
We have received your LSDAS report, making your application complete and ready to review.

Please note that we make every effort to review files in a timely manner, however, it may take weeks before the Admission Committee is able to evaluate your application. We kindly ask that you not contact the Admissions Office to ascertain the status of your application, as this will only serve to slow the process down. All other inquiries are welcome.

The Admissions Office will use e-mail as the primary method of communicating with you. Please be sure your e-mail account is set to receive e-mail from uchastings.edu.

Thank you again for applying to UC Hastings.

All the best,


Greg Canada,
Director of Admissions

^^^^

I believe this email signals that your app is under evaluation. I was accepted about 2 weeks after I received this email.

I got that email a few months ago too. So much for "Please note that we make every effort to review files in a timely manner, however, it may take weeks before the Admission Committee is able to evaluate your application."

They've sent out some dean scholarships (e-mail last Friday & letter yesterday)...nothing else. I called as well a few days ago. The lady asked if I was entering or continuing, I said entering...she said they're doing their best to get them out by April 1st. Not too much longer it seems. They told me by the end of March at the ASD...I want some of that grant money.

Sweet. Are you by any chance in the LEOP program? I am trying to gauge how to feel about being accepted into it. If I end up choosing Hastings, it looks like LEOP'ers have to start class a full week early!

I'm not LEOP. It does seem like it would be helpful, from the very few things I know about it.

I have never been someone who used tutoring much, so it would definitely be a new experience to have it required. On the other hand, until I took the LSAT I never tasted real academic defeat either. I guess I should be thankful they let me in either way. I hope people don't look down upon the LEOP students though.
