i'm real curious about that too? I've seen some odd decisions about who gets accepted but that is one of the stranger ones
A little background here...I applied to Hastings last year and got waitlisted. I have a 3.1 (2.97 LSAC) GPA and a 172 LSAT score. I didn't get into Hastings, and chose to reapply this year. I applied this year ED and got waitlisted AGAIN. The people in admissions at times when I've talked to them have been outright rude to me, and I just got a feeling of complete disorganization in that office. They really didn't have their *&^% together. LUCKILY i got accepted into GWU yesterday and I will be attending. I also received the email from Hastings, and I will not respond and withdraw my name. Hopefully my spot will help one of you get accepted. But I have to wonder, there's a reason why Hastings has been tumbling down the rankings these past few years.
