Hey it is me again. I think they will start calling next week for the Feb 9th interview. Last time they started calling two weeks before the interview day.

I called today because I'm starting to worry a bit, and the person that I talked to said they haven't called anyone for Feb. 9 yet. I'm glad someone else asked about this -- I'm not the only one wondering :)

To those who received interview invites, CONGRATS and Good luck!

Did your banweb show complete before receiving the invite? I just checked and it still in "incomplete" status. I haven't heard anything from them and I called Admissions and they tell me to check Banweb for updates.

Kinda going crazy here...

I got mine two days before the acceptance letter, believe or not.
I know it won't matter to you since you've already been accepted but it would help people who are waiting to hear SOMETHING, ANYTHING (except a rejection letter) from Western.

If it's not too much trouble, could you log on and check to see if 1. it says your file status is complete and all the fields up are filled in up until the point you're accepted.

Thanks so much!

Hi, I don't think you need to panic. My friend and I never get the ID to log in the system and we still get our invitation. However, I did get an email saying your application file is completed two months ago. Hope this helps.

right now my banweb looks completely different than the last time i checked. last time it was application info etc. Which did say it was complete. Now, i have banweb that resembles a westernU student with registrations, holds, transcripts, housing, financial aid, etc options.

Anyhow, don't stress abt banweb.

I never got a banweb letter. I also did not get an email saying my application was complete.. o_O

Did anyone here get interviews without either of those? I know people got interviews without a banweb, but what about the "application complete" email?

I'm still waiting too. Did banweb notify you on the interview date? Or did it only change after the interview and they decided to accept you? Also, were the invitations for the interview made via phone or a letter? I'm just trying to see what I should be looking out for so I don't overlook one thing and miss it all. Thanx.

I just received a phone call this morning saying that I have an interview this Saturday. Any quick suggestions on how I should prepare for this interview in a span of 3 days. Thanks.

Congratulation on your acceptance. Can you give us some advise regarding what to study for the essay?
Thank you:confused:

Study? LOL. Maybe study your life. The two essays that were given last time both asked about a decision or a period in your life. I don't think i have permission to give the exact essay topic, but that should give u an idea.

I guess if u want to study, you can pick random topic and practice writing for 40 mins and then check your spelling and grammar. I heard those are really important, maybe more important than content. good luck

Wow....they call you so late, did you ask them if you can postphone the interview? It is kind of last minute if you have not study anything before in advance. Anyway, look at the website and look at the database feeback. Hopefully, it should help a little.

I got a call this morning for 2/9 as well but I had to postpone to 3/1 since I had another interview elsewhere.

It seems a little unprofessional that they would call me just 3 days in advance.

Yeah it is pretty late, but I somewhat expected it considering I turned in my application at the deadline. The questions in this website do help out a lot and give me a gauge at what I should know. Other than that, I feel that if I postpone my interview, it will hinder my chances even more. I feel fortunate just receiving this interview. Based on that, would you recommend me to postpone my interview?

Maybe not, then. Since you did not tell time at the time when they called you. It's up to you now. I don't know if it is ok because usually people tell them when they call.

I see. Now it's up to me to prepare as best as I can then. Thanks for the advice. Oh and did I mention my check-in time is 7:30 am. That means I have to wake up at 5-5:30 am because I'm about an hour away. Thanks once again.

How did your interview go?? Was the essay question very hard? Were you given only one topic to write about, or you were able to pick a topice from a choice of two?
