    Hi everyone! I have applied for pharm schools for this upcoming fall, and have just been notified that I am an "alternate," or i guess on the wait list at Western University. I am so nervous right now!! I tried to call the admissions office to find out more information, but they are pretty hush hush about the whole thing. They dont give you a rank, nor do they tell you where you are on the list. Is there anyone that has info about how the wait list goes? Or if there are any chances of getting in? Is there anyone else out there that's also on the wait list!?!? I'm going crazy thinking about this!!! Please help! :eek:

    I recently decided to withdraw from Western, so hopefully there is a chance for you. When I was there for interview, they said that last year I believe 95 people were accepted from the waiting list, and that is a huge number since I think there is only 120 students (maybe I am wrong about the student number). Anyways, there is always hope. Good luck....

    I got into pharmacy school off the waiting list by telling the Dean of Admissions I had not applied to any other school because I just HAD to attend the same uni my Dad went to.....

    it worked
