    Haha yep! Judging by past threads, I’m guessing we’ll probably hear next Friday or the following week.. but I still can’t stop checking everything!

    I interviewed on Oct 29th. Have been doing the same, even though they told us mid-December lol. Western is my first choice so really crossing my fingers it works out. Good luck to everyone else waiting too!!

    I interviewed the 5th... and I THINK they usually let us know right before the 1st-3rd years go on break... which is approximately the 22nd :cyclops:

    I saw that last year they delayed decisions to Jan 12th and I just died a little inside :oops: really hoping that doesn’t happen to us!

    That is true but it also seems like they didn’t receive their first interview invites until October 26th whereas that was the first weekend of interviews for us. Our last weekend was November 12th, theirs was early December. Western implemented a new system last year as well as the VMCAS issues so, I think this year will be more on time (hopefully).

    Does anyone know if you get an interview then you are likely to at least get waitlisted? I got a rejection from another school so I’m getting paranoid :(

    I don't know the answer to your question but just wanted to say keep your head up! Rejections always hit hard, especially if they're the first thing you hear. It only takes one acceptance :)

    I believe some people are rejected after interviewing, but I am hoping for the best for you! We are about half way done with finals, so I imagine you'll be hearing back before the end of the month. Like WildZoo said, it just takes one acceptance. And if you are waitlisted, there is usually a decent amount of movement on the waitlist come spring time when people have to make their final decision where they are going to attend.

    They said mid December so I'm hopeful we'll hear by December 21st, next Friday, before the weekend and holidays.

    The day of my interview several students and staff mentioned that even if you don't get an acceptance letter in Dec. don't take it as a rejection. People mentioned that last year they had acceptance letters sent out as late as the first week of class! I guess the waitlist does go through a lot of action as ChillaLove stated^^.

    At my interview, they pretty much said they don’t send decesions out until right before they leave for their break. I pretty much took that as 4:00pm on December 21st

    Same! Judging by past threads, guessing the 21st as well (last year was off because interviews went into December I think). So nervous and excited! Hoping for good news *fingers crossed*

    Will it update on the portal? I just checked my portal today and I don’t see a place to look for it at all. Like there’s no “application status: pending” or anything

    Last year I got an email saying a decision was posted on the portal. There’ll be a pdf of a rejection/waitlist/acceptance letter

    I bought some sparkling wine in case I got in and a tub of ice cream in case I didn’t. To be honest, I’m probably going to break into both real soon because waiting is driving me nuts. I can crochet only so many sweaters for my cats! Yes, I’m actually doing that to distract myself

    I don’t blame them. And this year they don’t have to respond to phone calls and emails for what? Five days? Absolutely brilliant.

    Okay, did that holiday email make anyone else wanna pass out?

    I called the other day about something else and I was told that decisions will go out "end of the day Friday."

    From previous years it seems they load all of the decisions and once they are done their system will start sending emails. So they may click done at 5 but it could be after they close when the emails actually go out since it's all automated and we should all know around the same time.

    At this point we all just want to know, but remember that no amount of worrying is going to change when and which email you get. Stay positive and I hope to hear a lot of good news tonight from everyone.

    It's because the office will be closed for the holidays until January 7th and my guess is that it will be Friday of that week. Definitely a bummer but I appreciate the dean taking the time to give every applicant fair consideration.

    And if you think about it, some people might choose another school to attend by that time and thus that might elimininate possible wait listed students. Just find the positives!

    You’re right! I didn’t even think about the office being closed! But yeah that’s great on the Dean’s part for taking the time he needs to do things fairly.

    I'm disappointed that they did the same exact thing as last year, last minute pushing back the date. At least last year interviews went all the way to the first week of December, so I can understand the reason for it.

    Not at all? Have you checked your email on the portal to make sure it's correct?
