How do you feel being rejected by your safety?
« on: February 06, 2008, 08:07:59 AM »
I got my rejection from Hastings where I had a greater than 50% chance of acceptance based on lsac calculations.  My stats were 165 + 3.44, soft: Masters in engineering. I applied after I got my dec scores.  I feel shocked and angry why I was rejected.  The worst part is they won't tell you why. And I'm coming up with all sorts of reasons.  Maybe they want more diversity and less Asians with a technical background?  If that was a reason maybe they should put a disclaimer so I won't waste my money at that school.

Boo... I'm sorry about Hastings. I really want to get in there too. Hastings and Davis are my top two choices. I'm feeling less and less secure that I'm going to get in to either... Looks like I might be NOLA bound.

TITCR.  Unless you use the OP's definition of safety.

Your lacking ability to understand simple terms and concepts is likely related to your ding at Hastings.

My understanding is great thank you.  Say something worthwhile or don't post your retarded comments at all.  Is that why you have over 1200 posts because you have nothing better to do with your life?
