you have been waiting since Dec. :confused::eek::confused: It sucks! Good Luck.

That does seem a little ridiculous that they would keep you waiting all the way from december. That does not seem right...I would call and find out your status. I was in the March interview and I already heard...they seem to be stringing many along. I think you both should be hearing back before may...at least I would hope so.

Time to get on the phone to Admissions and ask some questions. It is my knowledge that all final letters were supposed to be sent out last week.

It would be a shame to find out you were sent an acceptance letter and didn't reply be April 20th!

Not too great...

GPA:3.11
Science:3.07
B.S. Biology (Anatomy/Physiology)
Work at CVS as Certified Pharmacy Tech

I think I just did well on my interview...I was surprised when I got an interview, and shocked when I got accepted...but very happy!

Did you get in to Western? or are you still waiting? What are your stats?

Does anyone know when Western will be sending out more paperwork for those that got accepted? I'm trying to plan out a trip in June but I'm worried that I'd miss the deadline. Has anybody received any housing or financial aid info letters from Western??


For those that haven't heard anything from Western, I know your pain. I was in your place last year...but just be patient, I mean there isn't anything you can do now....it's just a waiting game!

Don't give up!!!:) I heard they were sending out status letters no later than friday. So I am thinking you guys should hear back any day now. I would say if you don't hear by tuesday, give them a call. Maybe your letter got lost in the mail. But call before the 20th because that is when the deposit is due. Letter lost or not! Good luck to all!!!:thumbup:

i thought so

Its not the same thing. Alt. have better chances of getting in. At my interview they said that if you are still on waitlist by the end of April its hopeless. They go through the alt. list before going to the waitlist and they have never made it to the waitlist in the past. So being Alt is good news:thumbup:

Makes me feel better about alternate status. Though it would help to know where we were ranked once the list was finalized.

Hey guys! Just wanted to update everyone who is on the alternate list like I am. I was curious to see how we were ranked so I gave them a call. They said that basically everyone has an overall score from their interview and essay and thats how we are ranked. Starting May 1st, they will start pulling people from the alternate list because as of now, they are receiving calls from accepted students that want to withdraw. So stay positive guys!! I know I'm trying to be :)

I haven't received anything. I gave them a call today and found out that they had the wrong address. They won't give me my status over phone or e-mail me so now I just have to wait for the letter. Hopefully my wait is not too long and I will be rewarded for my patience with some good news. :luck:

i thought my interview went very bad b/c of my experience at touro. Touro said i was too dominating during my interview, which caused me to shy away during my western interview... darn!:mad:

Western guy said FAFSA alone is fine.
Other schools vary. USC wants student tax forms, parent tax forms, FAFSA, plus supplemental.

Not to hold out too much hope but the Western site says that they sent out 203 acceptance letters last year, for 120 seats. To me, that says that they had to send 83 letters beyond the primary acceptance letters.

I'm on the Alt list as well. The waiting sucks (7 more days, at least).
P-)

i am not from feb, or March interview group, but i can give you some information.. you don't get packet of immunization by mail. Western U will send you a letter that they confirm your deposit and give western website address for admitted ones. you and your physician need to fill out papers about immunization and physical examination then send back to Western U. that's all i have done so far.
i don't get financial information yet..

I called the financial aid office today and they said we should be receiving award letters in our western email accounts in the next few weeks. I also called admissions and she said the packets will be sent out by the end of next week. I hope that helps.

Does anyone know how many are on the alternate list? Did they actually send out rejection letters after the interview? Or is everyone just put on the alternate list if they are not initially accepted?

Pretty much from what I have heard, an alternate letter is a good thing...being on hold is not. They had about 100 alternates last year and ended up taking 36-39 of those (I can't remember exactly). But alternates can be accepted all the way into the 2nd week of school.

I was part of the feb 24 interview group. I received an alternate letter. I recently got accepted into touro university. Do you guys know the chances of gettin into western with an alternate status? I don't want to deposit $2,000 at touro and end up getting into western and withdrawing my application and losing $2,000 deposite!

depense on how many withdraw. if u got into another university(touro), then give others a chance to get in too. there are many of us who wish we were in ur shoes right now. some of us are still waiting and waiting for just 1 acceptance. sad, but very true.
