    I am reapplying this year because I was placed on the waitlist and I don't think I have a chance of getting in this year. Western U has changed the way they accept LOR this year and they request you to send it directly to them instead of through Pharmcas. Can anyone confirm that reapplicants only need to submit 1 new LOR? I called them today and they told me I only have to submit one but I just wanted to make sure. I would not want to be rejected again because my application was incomplete.

    I will also be a reapplicant to Western this coming application cycle. What you are saying brings good news for me! I hope it's true. Maybe it will be stated explicitly in their supplemental application about reapplicants only needing to send one letter of rec? (sorta like how reapplicants to USC should only answer the one reapplicant essay Q).

    Western U's supplemental application is up today. For those reapplicants, yes it is true that we only need to submit one letter of recommendation.

    My question is: on the directions it says only one (1) new recommendation is required.

    Does that mean that we cannot use the same ones as last year?

    can anyone open the check list link on western's page?

    also, we've already done 3 LOR forms for pharmcas, they want us to do another 3 for the supplemental!?

    western requires their LORs to be sent DIRECTLY to them. so use those same 3 and send them to western through mail along w/ the supp apps

    i called them multiple times asking the same question. apparently they prefer if you use their waiver forms, but they will still accept your school's waiver form.

    why exactly am i paying pharmcas a couple hundred dollars if i'm going to send LOR's directly to their school? western even changed their supp apps where I have to input my classes. so i'm paying pharmcas so they could send my transcripts. at most, that would have costed me 20 bucks.

    Someone told me: "if you wanna play the game, you'd better follow the rule."

    It is costly to send transcripts to both Pharmcas and individual school, but if you get in, it's worth the price.

    Best!!!
