Tell us what's important to you
how fked am I for hastings?
should i apply to leop
its kinda random. similar stats to me. apply early for sure, and if you are in the bay area make a point of that in your PS or an addendum as they get a lot of applicants who aren't totally serious about going
13:13
3.58 gpa. Can i get into a top 20 with a a higher LSAT?
yes you could
anyone deposited to uc law sf?
why did hastings rank fall so much?
the name change was probably a big part. location too

any waitlist updates? :(
^^
what about the 3.0 cutoff thing?
Did we ever find out if they even did any WL movement after the May 1st deposits? In the zoom meeting for WL peeps they said there would be movement, but I haven’t seen anyone mention getting in off the WL anywhere. Ugh!

I haven't seen anything either, maybe they're waiting to hear back for 2nd deposit deadline this weekend before going to waitlist??
AbleLittlePebble

thats what its looking like
Yeah tbh they really made it sound like in that zoom meeting that they would definitely be pulling off the WL, and that this years class size would be bigger than it has been the last few years.. so fingers crossed for those of us on the WL!
When is the 2nd deadline: 6/1 or 6/5?
is there a WL webinar or zoom meeting?
6/5
AbleLittlePebble
14:01
called admissions yesterday, they said they predict a few pulls this week and then some more the week after next; thought i'd keep you all updated!
Thank you for that update. Fingers CROSSED!
Any updates?
Nothing for me.
I got an A!!😭
Congrats! Was that off the WL? Still waiting to mine haha
Yes off the WL, just got the email a couple minutes ago.

congrats!!!
Thanks, hoping y'all hear soon!
hear back*
Did anyone else get a feeler today? (July 2nd)
I ended up getting put on the “summer waitlist”. Previously I was on the priority waitlist. Doesn’t seem like there’s any different, starting to lose hope. GL everyone!
