Has anyone heard from Western? It's been almost two weeks since they received all req'd docs and still nada... Western and USC seems to be just sitting on applications w/o any updates... Got accepted to KGI but I still would like to finish the whole process with USC and Western... hmmm

I have a friend who did ED for Western and she just heard back from them for the final decisions. I submitted my application more than a month ago and it still just says received docs. I believe that Western won't start reviewing applications for regular applicants until after the deadline. USC already had the first interview last Friday.

I see Western added gen bio as a pre req. Is that effective for this application cycle or next?

Last time I checked, KGI wasn't fully accredited like you said so I personally wouldn't risk applying there.

Not even a competition, Western trumps KGI, its established, amazing Naplex pass rates and better connections. A lot of people put them on par with Pacific and maybe even USC

I just had to secure my seat at KGI in case I don't get into other schools... Although KGI has a unique program and will be accredited in 2 years, I still would like to attend USC or Western. Don't get me wrong I am still grateful that I got into KGI. :)

For those of us who interviewed last week should hear something back by end of this week, right? They did say within a week... keeping my fingers crossed.

good luck guys! I was interviewed and accepted about 8 years ago. I have no regrets about attending. Western is a good school with a great board passing rates, low failure rate, good class scheduling, and solid rotation availability. If you have any questions, I can try to answer them.

As much as I appreciate and enjoy reading you write that you would choose western over USC, I think that you should reconsider. Despite some of the recent complaints from students about USC's curriculum and facilities, I think you have to go with USC over western just bc of the USC brand and overall reputation. The school has a great network in the profession and their residency matching rates reflect that.

Yes, I do agree about the USC network and brand... I know I may be jumping ahead of myself here... I would be lucky if I get accepted from either schools but I gunuinely felt more comfortable at Western. And, you are right in that I have been influenced by some of the negative comments and complaints about USC curriculum and facilities. Well, I'll see if I'll have any options at the end of this long waiting-game process. Thanks for your thoughts!!

Is the biology requirement for incoming P1's or people who are applying in the next cycle?
