Hastings is a second choice for a lot of people. After feeling disappointed about the w/l from Berkeley, I had to come to terms with Hastings. Once I got over the "inferior" ranking –which some say will improve– I realized what a gem Hastings really is. My reasons for loving Hastings are often grounds for other poster's criticisms. I never liked college towns and prefer rolling urban. Whenever people criticize the TL as being a sh*t hole, I can't help but get more excited about meeting people who enjoy that part of the city as much as I do. Large class size=more diverse and dynamic student body IMHO. Public service opportunities and west coast contacts abound. As much as Boalt would have been a great academic experience, I am more excited kicking it in the TL and the participating in the PI clinical opportunities afforded by Hastings. Hastings is not for everybody. I just wanted to start a dialogue for people who are as excited about Hastings as moi. See some of you there.

Don't they have pity loans or scholarships for Canadians trapped in a country that does not have UC Hastings?
NO MONEY FUCKER
the great thing about people is their ability to adapt and rationalize their decisions.
