I know the first class hasn't actually been seated yet, but does anyone know what the stats for the entering class are for Western?

Dont quote me on this.. but I heard that hardly anyone really knew about the school so very few people applied.. thus leading to lower qualified students being accepted

I really dont think that they can already be that competitive of a school to get into. I saw your statistics on your other thread, and I think you definitely could get an interview.

Once again, however, dont quote me on this because I really do not know for sure.

I'm wondering how many people apply last year? I'd be surprised if there were less than a 4 digit number.

I had an interview there last year and they said they got around 2100 applicants and they interviewed around close to 400 students. I forgot the GPA average but the DAT average was like 18.4???I think....

Their website says that the first class had an average gpa of 3.2 or 3.3....

I'd say that isn't too low, but their DAT average is a bit low.

@peerless218

Could you tell us a little bit about your experience at the interview?
My interview experience at Western..

After my interview session, I took a tour of the campus and ate lunch with couple medical students. There really wasn't anything to see when I had my interview because you know...nothing is actaully completed for the school of dentistry. The the tour was pretty quick. After lunch we had the financial aid session and the closing words by again, Dean Trumbly and that's all!!! Hope this helps

Why not wait to write the post mortem on Western until the official numbers are in? Midwestern was in a similar situation last year and managed to attract roughly 2k applicants. The 111 enrollees had respectable stats.
