Also wondering the same thing if anyone knows!
My friend who is a 3rd year said that the school provided the medical equipment and he received them during orientation.
Anyone else here interviewed on 4/5? They said half of us would know in 2 weeks and the other half in 4 weeks right? We hit the 2 week mark today so I'm super anxious.
What is the typical school day like? On Western's website it says you have 45 hours per week of class time...thats 9 hours a day...really hoping this isn't accurate. Is there a surgical skills center by chance?
When do students have to take level 1 by?
Withdrew from my acceptance. Good luck everyone!
Has anyone from the waiting list heard back yet?
Also, does anyone have a rough approximation of how many students get accepted from the waiting list?
also wondering the same!
I remember when I was interviewing students mentioned participating in “tracks” such as dialysis, pediatrics, and lifestyle management. Does anyone know how we declare/get involved in these?
Hey guys thinking about applying here next year. 503 mcat and 3.86 gpa. Do I have a shot?
GPA is solid, but MCAT is a tad lower than the average (506). If you're in-state that will boost your chances.
I'm from CA with a 503 MCAT and 3.61 overall GPA and got in. Anything is possible!
Accepted from 04/05 Green!!!
You would not like my advice. Your GPA is very good if your major is Biological Sciences or Physical Sciences. You should consider preparing and taking MCAT again as soon as possible. MCAT is a good gauge to compare and justify GPA from different schools.
Yeah, I agree with him
I interviewed at the Lebanon campus, but I assume it’s similar. There’s an application (essay) and an interview, I think. It’s a few months into your first year that you apply, I want to say October? Please feel free to correct me if I’m wrong - i interviewed at a few schools with track systems like this.
Where did you decide on?
I'd mostly ignore these unless you are really interested in one of the topics. In general, they are mostly a time sink and dont usually merit many residency app benefits. The research track is probably the biggest joke of them all, however. Maybe it will be better for your year. Just try not to worry about clubs and ECs so much unless you enjoy them or can get good research and presentations. (which some people get from these--but not nearly as many as they will make it seem when they try to sell you on these within the first 5 weeks of school.)

Did everyone send in everything in the checklist and have it marked completed? I still have the H&P, background check, degree, and academics still marked as incomplete.
Someone called about this and they said they've been prioritizing the ISAC students.
If you've completed everything I wouldn't worry about it - it'll get checked off. For the medical forms, they're supposed to confirm receipt after a few business days anyways. The background check will have a timestamp. And the academics/transcripts they download from AACOMAS and you don't have to take any action unless your original transcript didn't have your degree/all classes.
Ah. That makes a lot of sense lol. I had everything sent weeks ago and just thought it was weird that nothing was checked off besides having receipt of my AACOMAS transcript. I guess I'll give them some more time since ISAC should be starting soon.
For me, the background check was shown as received (with a green check) a few days after submitting it. My health documents took about 4 business days. I'm just waiting on degree conferred and academically complete to be checked off. Guess we just have to give them time.
Are you joining for the regular start or the ISAC session? Its been about a week to 2 weeks since I've sent my background check and H&P. Degree/Academic has been awhile since they received my transcript about a month ago.
I am not doing SPARC or ISAC, I'm starting regular. They received my transcripts 2/13, no change to degree conferred or academically complete. Submitted my H/P and background early last week, received and checked off by the end of the week. Still no change to degree or academically complete. Some people on the fbook page said it took them some time before their status was changed. I completed my undergrad in 2014, so not sure why it hasn't been conferred. Guess it's just a waiting game at this point, but we are not alone!
Where did you send your transcripts to?
I just updated my AACOMAS and it went through. They download the information from AACOMAS.
So we’re not required to reorder and send out transcripts?
You don't if the transcript(s) you submitted to AACOMAS shows degree conferment.
I think you only have to re-order if you have to update any new coursework.
WOOOOOOOOOOOOO just got accepted!!!
When did you interview? From waitlist?
I interviewed late April, and nope I wasn't on the waitlist
Did you interview April 19? When did you hear back?
yeah! and I heard back 5/4
Has anyone got their financial aid package yet? (for regular start student)
I'm still waiting for my academics, background check, and degree conferred to be checked off . Let alone receive the financial aid package....
All of the above are the same for me! I’m hoping they’ll be done soon...
Accepted in Oct. Completed FAFSA in Feb and just submitted health reports. Got student email address. Still waiting for academic check, background check and financial package. Very slow.
Yea... Idk why they are so slow.. aren't we suppose to have this done soon?
All of mine have green check marks for a week already, regular start student. They are probably just taking time to go through
How soon were y'all cleared for the physical and immunizations after submitting everything?
They supposedly didn't receive any of the things I sent them, when I called after 10 days of it being sent. I emailed them the second time and it was cleared almost instantly because the staff was looking out for it.
How long ago did you send your transcripts, etc? I've been trying to call and email the admissions office but no answer so I guess I'll just wait...
Same day for me
I sent them in 2nd week of April. They got cleared last week
It took about a week for mine to clear/for them to send me an email. Submitted sometime in April
Is there a Facebook page??
