SDN Members don't see this ad. (About Ads) Just stopping by to wish you all good luck! Western U is an amazing school, if you get an interview invite- definitely make sure to check it out! Regarding Pomona, it's really not that bad. I live about 2-3 mins away from campus and it's totally fine. Like a previous poster stated, don't go looking for trouble and it won't find you. Also, remember that for the interview(s) it's ok to take a minute to formulate your thoughts. They'd rather hear coherent thoughts than a string of displaced and rehearsed lines. Lastly, before you start medical school (whether it's at Western U or not) make sure to REALLY REALLY REALLY enjoy your summer. Any attempt to "prepare and study ahead" will be futile.
