Hey all!

I don't see a thread started for Western this cycle!!!!!!

Question: I noticed there was a separate secondary application in the c/o 2023 thread- is there not one besides the small questionnaire on the VMCAS application this year? Don't see anything mentioned on Westerns website.
UPDATE: They emailed me back, no secondary application this year.

How soon after submitting you vmcas app did you hear from Western to let you know they received it?
Submitted on VMCAS on September 9th, Verified on September 12th - Western sent me portal on September 17th saying app received. This morning, September 20th, they have sent my app to the committee for review! :)

Does anyone know when we will hear about interviews? From what I could tell they are held in October/November so I would think very soon so we can plan but I am not sure

Has anyone not heard from them at all? I was verified on the 2nd of September.
I was verified on September 12
They reached out on September 17th, asking for a syllabus for my organic chem lecture -- I sent syllabus on Sept 18th
I got an email from them September 20th saying my application was sent for committee review.

I applied end of August and got the received email two days later! Then I got the committee review email the day after that!

I was verified in August, got sent an email in mid September that they needed an additional piece of documentation by October 7th. Seems as though they got it ok since I just recently got the email that my app has been sent in for committee review. Look for that email by the 7th everyone! If you don’t receive that within the next day or so I’d check in and ask if they need anything.

Just received email for interview invite! OOS applicant
Congrats!! Oh my gosh, so it begins....

What interview dates did they offer you? Also, when did you submit your app and when did your app go into committee review if you don't mind me asking?

Thank you! I submitted July 15th, was sent to committee review August 15th (I don’t know if it was because they don’t start reviewing until then) and got the interview today! For 10/26, 10/28, or 11/2 and you get a choice between 7:15am or 12:15 start

I called this morning and was told that when we are sent to committee or sent an email letting us know we are missing something depends on when we submitted our application. I guess that's why they told us at preview day that we shouldn't wait until close to the deadline o_O, I was hoping to let my work know when to expect me going for an interview. She just said that if anything was missing they would email us so I guess we wait.

Hi all, for those who were sent to committee for review - did you get an email that notified you or does it say "sent to admissions for processing" on your portals? :dead:

I have an interview at western (exciting!) at 8:15 pm EST and have to figure out transport (less exciting). Anyone have advice?
I have to get there for a Saturday morning Interview, so I’m flying out Friday. I’m flying out from Baltimore so the options aren’t great. Essentially Lax is cheapest and fastest, but getting to Pomona would be a nightmare. SNA is next best for price, but same deal with getting to and from Pomona. ONT is the best for location but the pricing is up there AND the shortest flights back are 13 hrs and two transfers.

When I interviewed last year, I got an AirBnB. It’s extremely cheap. I think the place I stayed was like $30 a night.

Yay procrastinators! I submitted my app on Sept. 14th ish and was verified on the 18th! Then on Oct. 4th, I received an email stating that I was missing a prerequisite that I thought I had, and that I had until Oct. 11th to let them know I had a qualifying course in progress. The email said that they didn’t want me to try to ask about existing courses I had already taken, but in my approved prerequisite courses for my undergrad college, another course I had taken said “accepted with syllabus.” So I petitioned to use that course. They previously did not consider since it was split into two classes (one class over two quarters, two units each, four units total). I sent the syllabus and hoped for the best since it was technically one class that had adequate units and fulfilled the bio + lab requirement. Heard back on the 10th that the course had been accepted, committee review on the 11th! That’s my timeline. Best of luck to everyone!

Usually it all goes out at the same time. I think for last year it was early January.

I (F) reserved a room at Comfort inn, Pomona for my interview at Western (Nov 8th to 9th).

The only room left had two beds, so there’s one going spare if anyone is lacking a reservation.

So I got an email on 9/20 saying my app was sent to the committee for review but I haven’t heard anything since. Is this bad news? I’m starting to really worry.

Everything about this time is a waiting game. Admissions is such a dark hole- there’s no saying if they are still processing all the apps or what is happening behind the scenes. My advice is to continue life as usual and try not to worry. I’m sure Western will contact you if they need any additional documents. Wishing you the best of luck while you wait! <3

I'm interviewing on October 26th, but land at 10 am on October 25th. I'm planning on checking out Pomona that day if anyone is interested in meeting up sometime throughout the day?

This is what I see when I log in to the portal. Just didn’t know if it’ll say “sent to committee” or if it’s there.

Mine is in committee review but on my applicant status page it doesn’t say that it is. I got an email once it was sent for committee review.

Does your status page say anything at all about your status like how @Nmakowsk showed theirs? Mine literally just has
"Welcome name
