    the interview was really smooth and nice...so much better than the other California schools I would say...simple questions and a nice assay question...if you guys get any interview just review the SDN feedback questions and do few mock interviews and GOOD to go... Good Luck!!

    I agree with Azaria. The day was pretty stress-free, and my interviewers made me feel very comfortable. I felt like it went well, but who knows what they thought. I'm just trying hard not to over-analyze and drive myself crazy until mid-January. Good luck to everyone!

    When they called me for a Dec interview, I said that I couldn't make it. So they let me postpone it until January. They also said that they will call again a couple weeks before the interview to confirm my attendance. I'm assuming that is when they will call the Jan interview invites also. Hope that helps!

    I havent heard back from the school at all, should I call them and ask about my status? I know people who already have late January interviews so I am getting worried. Were you notified through email? Or was it snail mail?

    No need to call. No one has gotten an "official" interview invite for Jan. Most likely will be sending out the first set of interviews on Jan 9th.

    Hi! When you say "will hear back", does that refer to people who interviewed on Dec. 10th OR for new interviewees?

    Thank you!

    I think they said by tomorrow the latest. Maybe wait until tomorrow to get worried?
    They didn't manage to send out interview invites within a day, I can imagine them not being able to send out all acceptances in a day as well.

    There are only have 3 interview dates and their class is 120 i think, so I think about 60 ish students are accepted accounting for waitlisted people in case people drop out.

    Only a rough estimate

    What does it mean to be put on hold? Do people typically get in or is it a death sentence?

    Don't worry you still have a chance of being accepted!! A friend of mine was placed on Hold too last year but got accepted during the second round of interview.

    I don't remember what the essay was but it was a fairly general topic that you could decide how you wanted to answer the question. Not a stressful question at all. I think my writing portion went well, I'm pretty confident in my writing skills. If anyone is put on hold, I wouldn't stress out; a student I met and spoke to that day told me people on hold continuously get pulled because students get accepted to other schools and decide to not go to Western, opening spots...

    Does anyone now if Western rejects people from their interview pool? Or are they like USC where all students who do not get accepted automatically becomes waitlisted? Also, what is the difference of "hold" and "alternate"?
