how do you know for a fact they're taking applications? I was just wondering because admissions said they wouldn't till December...maybe they're a little early...insight?

Western was the first to declare it was accepting applicants for 2009 and has been the most aggressive with their sales pitch.

All 3 programs will be weak and have unforseen complications that will be corrected at the expense of the 1st year's students. Their goal will be to gain respectability as quickly as possible & the welfare of the first couple classes will be secondary to that goal.
