Are you sure decisions are made for LEOP applicants in March? I submitted my application in late November.

I'm just hoping they don't fill up on 164s before they get to me!

I feel the same way. I visited the school two weeks ago, and a very friendly adcom told me that LEOP decisions are made at the end of the cycle, in March. I also applied in November, but only went complete after Christmas due to a LOR mixup. Unlike most schools, Hastings doesn't take letters mailed or faxed directly to admissions. Still, I was extremely impressed with everyone I met there. Due to scheduling, I had to visit before classes resumed, and a security guard volunteered to take me on a tour of the campus. I was really charmed and touched by his devotion to the school, since he obviously was not paid to be my tour guide.

I have heard Hastings is saving 20% of the seats for us LEOPers, and that the median LEOP LSAT is under 160. I hope things go faster this year, though; March seems so far away.

Just got the mail, and in with 164/3.34! Huge relief as I'd begun to doubt my chances at the better schools I applied to.

I wonder what percentage of LEOP applications make up their total application pool. If it's more than 20%, that would suck for competitive candidates who applied to the program.

In today! Thin-ish envelope so don't be scared!

I'm from the East Coast and don't know much about UC-Hastings except for the fact that it seems to be well respected on this board!

Congrats everyone. I just checked LSN and realized I'm so far the lowest LSAT score (162). I don't have a LSN account, so I thought I'd let those of you still waiting. I applied ED, though, and found out about 6 weeks ago.

162/3.76 if you're curious.

Yes, it was unusual, but the Dean (not the admissions Dean, but the LS Dean) has a special interest in me, so she conveyed.

This might give an answer as to why: --LinkRemoved--
