    Hi
    For those of you accepted, do you know what address we send our transcripts to? Did anyone do it online from SMC?

    Are Western's admissions also dependent on other school's admissions too? I was reading the USC thread and they are saying they have something between 80-130 seats that the admission committee is still trying to fill.

    To those you made their deposit, do they send you an email or anything that confirms that they have received your check? I would ask the school directly, but it seems likely that you can't get a very quick response from them at all.

    80-130 seats to fill and April is ending and May is coming up seems a little skeptical. 40-60 seats i can believe considering all UCSF and UCSD seats had been filled and waitlisted people are getting pulled off.

    Did they send it to your school email? I emailed them this morning and they said that they got my deposit and sent me an email to confirm it. However, I didn't get any email.

    congrats to everyone who has been accepted. If you're on hold or WL don't lose hope.
    I will be graduating from WesternU in 20 days and I can say the education that you get at WesternU is very good, majority of the staff is great, and I really enjoyed my time at WesternU.

    Congrats everyone :)

    I agree. However, his description is a little open ended. Just wanted to hear what his take on the staff was in a little detail.

    Why do you say "don't lose hope" to those students on hold or WL?????
    Were you in the same situation and then pulled off the list???? Or do you know people from your class that were accepted by this process???

    I think he meant students can still be pulled off right before school starts so anything is possible until the first day of orientation.

    Yes, I have heard that. My pharmacist and interns I have worked with from Western have also told me they have had students come in a week or two after school has begun.

    I spoke to admissions and they said the seats have all been offered and deposits are slowly coming in. Once people start declining the offers, those on "Hold" will get pulled off.

    Good luck to everyone still patiently waiting "On Hold."

    sighs, this is so depressing :( those who plan to attend another school, PLEASE let the school know ASAP about withdrawing your spot so the people "on hold" could have a chance.

    If that is the case, shouldn't Western let us know now that we are "Alternates" and not "On Hold"?

    Their silence is so inconsiderate!

    Perhaps they are waiting until all accepted students to make their decisions then put the hold students in alternative lists and start calling people to see who still wants to come to WesternU

    i feel that admissions are just telling whomever calls whatever the professional response is they are sticking to that day. Don't get your mind all tripped out by hearing all these different things.

    Hang in there, news will come.

    After thinking about it, I think it may be for another school.

    Western's cost of attendance includes a background check, so maybe we do one when school starts?

    For those that recently got accepted, how long does it take to get your immunizations done? From the looks of when they want everything, it should be done by June 1st. And does anyone know where I can contact the College of Pharmacy at Western Directly? I've looked for their number on their website and I can't seem to find it.
