Does western offer interviews this early? I haven't seen any interviewees around campus lately, but then again I'm probally in class most of the day.

TJ,

I didn't get an invite, though I did get an email saying that my file was complete and ready to be reviewed for interview invite.

You must really want to go to this school.

It's the only one I applied to unless you count the 3 that I have no chance of getting into (USC, UCLA and Drew)

Hello!
This is my first time visiting the site.
I have an interview with Western in a couple weeks. I heard from them just yesterday.

Goodluck!
Chrissy

How did you hear from them, Chrissy?

Nobody else has an interview, yet?

They called me to schedule an interview then sent me a letter with all the information. Don't worry Toejam, I'm sure you'll hear soon.

Ninjaboy-when are you going to Western?

I would definitely appreciate any tips from anyone on interviewing there!

Congrats and best wishes to everyone on their interviews. Mine is this Thursday, 9/19. Everyone else, hang in there, it's still early in the cycle.

Does anyone know if it's an interview with a panel or is it just one-on-one? Judging from the schedule, it looks like it may be with a panel but I don't know for sure.

Unless they have changed the format (and I haven't heard of anything like that yet), you're usually interviewed by anywhere from 1-3 members of the faculty and maybe administration (someone will have to check me on that). Depending on the interviewers, one may get some difficult ethical and/or provocative questions or the questions may all be rather routine and laid-back. I suggest being able to talk about anything mentioned in your secondary application (since they will have it sitting in front of them) as well as prepping with the usual sort of interview questions that get asked. These sort of questions may range from listing your strengths and weaknesses to your knowledge of osteopathy to why do you think you would be a good match for this school to questions regarding your feelings between going to a DO or MD school (Just to list a few examples) Personally, I think the main key is to be genuine and not to be too stressed out. Sometimes, it is not a matter of having the correct answer as much as having a thought process that was well-thought-out.

Good luck and try to relax and enjoy your interview day!
