Where should I go next fall? / Re: Still waiting at Hastings?
« on: May 12, 2006, 07:08:24 PM »
Well, I got my email about an hour ago.  It really didn't say much though, nor did the website it directed you to.  Of note, it did say that they do not accept additional materials to supplement your application.  The only additional thing they will accept are end of the year grades if you have not already sent them.  Not very helpful to those who have been out of school for a while.

And of course, they ask that you do not call or email.  :-\

Seems unlikely waitlisted people would get money....

Unfortunately, the email says that they won't accept additional materials, and that decisions on the waitlist will be made in late July or early August...and orientation starts August 14th...

nyy- I was waitlisted (found out via status checker today), but I have not received the email with instructions and information about the waitlist.  I figure I will wait to receive that, and then perhaps call.  Have you gotten the email?  (if you were waitlisted, that is)

Wait List / Re: Waitlists 05-06 Cycle

Waitlist at Hastings.  Suprised it wasn't an outright rejection.

After reading through the list of recommended books, I was quite suprised not to see "A Fine Balance" by Rohinton Mistry listed.  I thought it was amazing. Interesting use of language, history, and moving story rolled into one. 

It is depressing and uplifting at the same time...although some people have said it makes them want to jump off of a bridge.

General board for soon-to-be 1Ls / Re: Admitted student receptions

That is very true.  I guess I figured that if people have made it this far in the process they must be convinced that law is what they want to do.

Well, yeah...obviously it isn't graded or anything...I was just a little surprised and wondering if this was the case with all (or most) receptions.

Has anyone else been given homework prior to attending the admitted student reception day? I received approximately 20 pages of case law to read and brief by Saturday morning.
I was under the (apparently mistaken) impression that these receptions were designed to check out the facilities and potential classmates, not to jump straight into class work.  Just wondering if anyone else finds this a little odd.  (Honestly, I don't mind the work, but I haven't even decided if this is the school I want to attend.)

Acceptances / Re: Two Seat Deposits
« on: April 17, 2006, 08:49:20 PM »
I think that multiple seat deposits are often completely necessary (waiting for financial aid info, waiting for other schools, waiting to visit).  I would venture to guess that many people don't visit a school unless they have been admitted, and once admissions decisions go out, the timetable gets very rigid...in these case you might want to hold your spot at 2 (or even 3) schools while you get to go and check them out.  This is why schools have multiple seat deposits...I think they know that the first is basically a place holder...the 2nd shows true commitment.  In fact, many schools even ask if your deposit is a "place-holder" or a commitment of interest.
