    Just wondering if anyone out there, accepted or interviewed, knows how many seats are left for this cycle at Western? Interviewing there on the 4th of Feb. I interviewed at ASDOH and they told us how many deposits they had in when we interviewed so hopefully Western did the same!

    Hey Western Peeps,
    I wish everyone good luck on today's interview, Ill be talk to you at lunch today :). For people waiting to get into Western, don't worry to much there is still plenty of time to get in. I interviewed last year in mid October and didn't get in until the end of May. There is hope trust me.

    For those of you already accepted, CONGRATULATIONS....start brushing up on anatomy and immunology because you hit the ground running...HARD.:laugh::laugh::laugh:

    I am sorry to hear that, but keep your chin up! As others have said, you still have a chance as they offer acceptances all the way into May.

    What was the method of contact?

    I spoke with Western and they told me that at this point in time approximately 55% of the class has been filled (keep in mind that the numbers may fluctuate, thus may not be totally accurate). The committee is deciding on whether to add any additional interview sessions. Candidates that had already interviewed will be notified by email or phone on the decision of accepted/rejected/alternate. We have to wait a bit longer. Good luck to all.

    It almost seems like everyone received alternate letter. Did anyone who had an interview receive rejection letter??

    It would be nice to know how many waitlist positions are offered, considering the letter they sent us says the waitlist is not ranked.

    I also received the alternate letter today. When I talked to Western last week, they told me that no rejection letters has been sent in yet. What they told me was that if by this week, you don't get an acceptance or alternate letter, you could be in the rejection group. However, they are still deciding if they should hold another set of interviews and that is why they're holding on to the rejection letters.... but I really wonder how many people are placed in the waiting list...

    I got a request for interview today. They scheduled me for what they said was the last and only date that they are holding interviews- Feb 24. I imagine that at this late date, interviewees will be told of their fate rather quickly and alternates will start to be accepted shortly after....

    I've called them yesterday and they said some were also rejected... But they have ~200 ppl on the alternate list. It seems like it will be tough to get off the list... So sad..

    I really don't understand why they did this! I would rather have waited a little longer for them to make a decision than put everyone on the alternate list! Good luck everyone!

    Considering that It's a new school and it's private, I'm sure most people who get an acceptance from another school will give up their spot at Western and they will move though a large portion of the alternate list. I already declined my spot so that's one more for you guys. Good luck!

    Hi, I interviewed on Feb. 4th as well. They told me in the interview that we would either know something sometime soon, or it could take awhile before a decision is made. They called me on the 9th and let me know I was in. I didn't think I was going to hear anything for quite some time! I wish the best of luck to everyone! :)

    Not exactly sure where people are getting their numbers from, but when I called the admissions office today, all they said was we can expect to hear back as late as August.

    When I asked in regards to the size of the alternate list, they said that they are unable to provide that information to the public.

    Forgot to ask about weather or not their class was full - I will probably call back later today and ask.

    Hey guys, I just interviewed today in the final group. I was quite impressed. I really, really hope I get in. We were told that we would hear back in two weeks from today, and if not, to call them. She said they won't be able to give you their decision over the phone, but I guess they'll mail it to you again. I don't know if the two weeks applies only to us who interviewed today or to the people who haven't heard back. As far as seats, I didn't get a straight answer, but I think there are at least 20 seats still open. Also, I was told that everyone got in off the alternate list last year (though I would be amazed if they started out with 200, even if many declined). I hope I'm not setting anyone up for disappointment (myself included). :-\

    Yeah. I interviewed there back in Sept and I loved it. If you don't mind me asking, who told you everyone got in from alternate list last yr? I am waitlisted there. I would love it to happen again this yr... :/ Anyways, thank you for the info. It really helps.

    This is killing me. Every time my phone rings, it's a mad race to answer in time, only to find out it's a telemarketer. Any day now...

    I'd give it another week before I really start freaking out - As you have said Tirekicker, they will get back to the February interviewers within 2 weeks, and it has only been 1. Unfortunately, I interviewed back in October so I guess it doesn't apply to me :cool:

    Keep us posted - Good luck! :xf:

    Congrats!

    Were you on the waitlist or is this the first time that you got a decision letter/call of acceptance?
    I'm really hoping for Western.
