Lol. Maybe they'll just <3 you.

If a school did let a student in because of an error, do you think they'd take it back? Like airlines do when they accidentally give out dirt-cheap fairs? (re: guy on CNN who got a us-australia rt first class flight for 1k... the airline then called him and said he could either take a coach seat or pay the difference in prices...10k)

oh ya. There are stories about schools sending out acceptance emails to the wrong batches of students, all decisions were rescinded.

In fact, last year UCSD sent a bunch of acceptance, I think maybe to EVERYONE who had applied - all on accident. Had to take them all back, obviously.

How'd you hear about them, I couldn't finding anything on the admitted students' section of the website, and my admission letter had nothing about it.`

I assume your admissions letter was the scary small envelope with 2 sheets of paper? I received an actual admissions packet a few weeks after I got that letter. The packet had the days listed. I believe this has been the case with other admitted students as well. FYI, I also had searched the website extensively for the info and found nothing, so I am pretty sure it's not on there.

I almost cried when I saw the small white envelope. After I realized I was in, I was again disappointed thinking this was all they were going to send me. Good to know there is a packet coming. Unless I get into a T-14 or UCLA/USC, I'll be attending Hastings.

Well congratulations to both of you! It's well deserved. Hopefully I'll be seeing you guys in the fall! (Should you decide to attend and I get accepted, ha)

The unnerving part is there's no status checker to tell you when evaluation is taking place or they've DR'ed.

i would like some other opinions on this dilemma of mine:

what is a better idea, considering i am pretty positive that i want to work in SF-- substantial scholarship at USF with GPA reqs, or sticker at hastings? obviously hastings is vastly above usf in rankings and what not, but the idea of having potentially lower debt is so tempting. unless i dont meet the gpa reqs, of course, and that mystery adds to the difficulty of the decision

How stiff are the gpa reqs?
