    My entire application was complete as of July 25th. I think they are still reviewing applications.

    I can't stand Western's emails..........

    They are always informative... But they always start like an interview invitation!

    Each time, my heart stops and then slowly starts again as I read that it is indeed not an invitation.

    subject : WESTERNU Update

    The email that you received is the 2nd email.

    the 3rd email we got started out like this:

    Greetings from WesternU Admissions! I hope you are having a great summer. I just wanted to let you know that the Admissions Committee has started reviewing applications and we hope to begin inviting candidates for interviews soon. We typically interview from mid-September through early February. Should you be selected for an interview, we will call you to coordinate a convenient interview date.

    IMPORTANT:
    When the Admissions Committee reviews your application, they consider all in-progress/planned coursework (including both prerequisite and non-prerequisite courses) as well as any degree in progress when making their decision. Any change your plans must be submitted to the Committee for review and approval. If you are ultimately accepted to the program and you do not finish your planned degree or coursework as listed on your application, your admission could be affected.

    I did. Is the 15th of Sept. the first day of interviews? Does anyone know? They didn't seem like they wanted to offer any other dates, the 15th was the only day she mentioned and it worked for me so I didn't ask what else there was.

    That's probably the first interview day. Same sort of deal as last year. Sept 24 was the first day then. They offered one date like they were just filling in one date at a time. I even hinted at the afternoon instead of the morning and she didn't seem to like that. She made it seem as if that was the only date for now. I wasn't about to get off the phone without a scheduled interview. I just agreed to it and made it work...even skipped my brother's wedding for it.

    i'm glad that a fellow uci student hasn't gotten one yet (but you definitely will) :p if someone with good stats like yours hasn't received an invite yet, then i should not be worried at all yet. i have average gpa but good dat, however my lors were all sent out pretty early.

    Pomona is located in the south east region of Los Angeles county. It's probably an hour and 15 min away from LAX unless you found a closer airport :) I don't really know if there's anything to do there, but ya definitely look it up on google maps or see if you find any shops or stores nearby :) I'm from the LA region.

    Yeah I am flying into LAX, the closer airport was quite a bit more expensive. I know there is a bunch to do in LA I am just a little hesitant to walk around the city all alone doing the tourist thing with my fanny pack and digital camera.

    Ohhh lol there's a lot of tourists in LA. LAX is actually located in the Inglewood area. So there's really no tourist spots there. Try Santa Monica Pier & 3rd St. Promenade or Venice Beach. :)
