Thanks.

Hope I hear soon. Fiance and I were literally about to walk out the door to apt/house hunt in Davis/Sac when I got the e-mail. Might hold off for a few days now.

I was a part of the last WL email batch, but I received nothing today. Perhaps this is a more selective group! Best of luck to you!

WHAT???! Did they make offers to all of the people in the last batch of e-mails? I haven't heard a thing.

Sorry, I wish everyone good luck, but I'm starting to cave a little under the pressure.

I don't know, and my indecision is frustrating. For their different reasons, I'm sure I'd be equally happy at either. Fiance's job search has to date been conducted as if we were going to Davis. And if a job materializes soon, that'd end the debate. But the timing of everything might not work out so simply.

Whatever happens, I'm pretty freeking happy to be in California now.

Does anyone know if Hastings requires a transcript even from people who graduated in prior years and it's the same one that was sent to LSAC/LDAS?

check web advisor, if "Official Transcript (with Degree Posted)" says received then you probably don't have to worry about it

Yes, I believe new official transcript is required from all.

Does anyone know when we're supposed to get our book list or class schedule? It would be nice to be able to get them off Amazon if we get it relatively soon.

Doesn't answer your question, but Amazon.com prime is now free if you have a .edu e-mail.

I think you must have misplaced a decimal point there. That book costs too much. :cry:

Amazon.com has used, unmarked copies going for under $90 after shipping. Also, I saw that book listed for 3/4 Civ Pro sections. One professor, G. Hazard, requires his own casebook called "PLEADING & PROCEDURE."

I apologize if this has been covered before, but does anyone know if the student health center does the physical/urinalysis/TB Test? And if so, do they do it for a discounted rate??

Hastings Admissions is going straight to voicemail...guess they're inundated by calls.

I wanted to call anonymously for status on WL and final decisions. Should I e-mail instead and risk sounding pushy? I was among those who received the e-mail on 6/14 and I've heard nothing. I don't think they ranked the WL if they just sent out another batch of WL e-mails yesterday...

did the e-mail say anything else? asking to reaffirm continued interest, etc?

Yup, the e-mail from 6/14 asked if I was still interested in being considered for a spot and if so, to include info like name/LSAC #/address/phone #. I responded immediately that I was most definitely still interested. No news since then.
