    hey guys!

    so I'm applying for the fall 2009 cycle and I'm getting ready to ask for my letter of recs, but I'm a little confused. On pharmcas is says that western wants their letters of rec sent directly to the school, I checked the Western website and it doesn't say anything about that, it just says to apply through pharmcas then fill out their supplemental on their website. So, anyone who has experience applying at Western, do I just send the e-letter of rec through Pharmcas or do I have to print something out for my pharmacists/professor to fill out? This is my first time applying and now I know how everyone feels when application cycle comes around!!!
    thanks in advance!!

    Hi,

    WesternU does not use the recommendation forms from Pharmcas. They have thier own forms and u need to print out from their website. I dont think the forms are on thier website yet but contact the admissions to ask when the recommendation forms will be available.

    Does anyone have updates regarding the evaluation form? My reference is going out of the country, I need to mail him the material desperately...

    I just contacted the admissions office thru email, will contact them again by phone tomorrow. I will let you know if I have new info.

    No. Western has about 12 additional questions you have to answer. About a paragraph or two for each. I mean almost all schools have additional questions on their supplemental apps...
