So am I correct in interpreting from this that first-round awards were sent along with some admissions decisions, presumably the auto-admits? If so, has anyone received a scholarship yet because LSN doesn't have anyone with $?

Or are first-round awards given out later even though they've already decided who will get them, vis-a-vis admissions decisions?

Thanks.


there is at least one person on LSN who received a scholarship with their admission letter. im guessing a few early auto-accepts have as well but they have not listed it.


Oh okay. I saw that LSN person too but was skeptical of the truthfulness of the report due to others having better numbers but no money. Well then, I guess I'll be waiting till late spring to hear about any money. Thanks!

my understanding is that a couple people have received scholarships a couple weeks after their letters of admission (by email), so don't worry too much if you didn't receive money with your letter. So far I'm not aware of anyone who received money with their letter. Unfortunately looking at last year's scholarship recipients, it doesn't look like Hastings is too generous with merit awards :?

Not sure if it's on the website, but I received an information packet today in the mail and it says admitted student days are March 20 and April 17.

My decision came in a small envelope so I was fearing a rejection, but I'm in, and I'm pretty stoked.

Got the letter yesterday, dated January 27th. I had gone complete the same day I submitted, on January 14th. Nice turnaround time.

No scholarship money as yet.

did you apply LEOP?

either case

I'm frustrated too, the two schools I'd like to attend most (outside of Berkeley which already rejected me) are going to take forever to get back to me. I applied LEOP to Hasting so I definitely have to wait some more, and UC Davis probably won't get decide until April 14th or some ridiculously late date. Some peace of mind would be nice... then I could do productive things like figure out where to live, etc, instead of checking the mail every 4 hours.

Nope, and I am in the same boat as you. Davis/Irvine are my #1s, Davis will let me know in the next 5 months and Irvine isn;t looking like it will accept me.

Maybe San Diego is meant to be?

I gave up on Irvine a while ago when I found out they pretty much exclusively took older applicants with WE or traditional students with stellar numbers.

I got my acceptance letter on 1/28 for LEOP. 167/3.23

Extremely nervous of the debt this will require though.

I went complete on 10/28. Does anybody think it's worth calling to make sure my application hasn't been misplaced, etc? I'm surprised to hear about so many people who went complete in January hearing back already when I have comparable numbers and applied almost 3 months earlier.

I'd wait a bit longer...especially since they specifically stated in the "complete" e-mail not to contact them about your application status. Maybe hold off for another month? I'm sure you'll hear soon! Your nos. are definitely good within their range...

Thanks, good call on their email, I went and re-read it and saw that line. It had been a while since I looked at it, since it got here way back before Halloween. Good luck with your admissions cycle!
