    How long did it take for you to receive an interview invitation from Western after you submitted all your materials?

    Received mine about 3 weeks after submitting secondaries but this was for ED.

    Haven't heard anything yet.

    I also interviewed on Oct. 8th and I still didn't hear anything. I received my invitation to interview a week and half later after submitting my complete application.

    Not yet. What's so frustrating is this is the school that I really want to attend. I've already been accepted to two other schools. But I'm waiting to hear back from WesternU before I reply to them. Does anyone know when the expected turnaround for them to reply us is supposed to be?

    They say by tomorrow, Oct 21, on their website for ED. Didn't expect it to be literally the 21st.

    Edit: Just checked my application status on Western's site and it says Institution Acceptance :)
    Haven't gotten an email from them though so it's worth checking. Good luck everyone!

    It seems you have a strong application that they considerd you as one of the ED applicant! Best of luck

    active consideration, pretty much people with subpar gpas are put on this list just in case the other accepted applicants decide to attend other school (i.e. USC- in most cases)

    I just checked my application summary page and it says under decision "institution acceptance," but haven't received an email or anything. Anyone else got this?

    Is it true people who have not heard back are pretty much the ones who didn't get accepted? I checked it today my application summary and mine still doesn't show anything?!

    I had my interview back in November 12th. I saw some of you guys heard back on Wednesday and got accepted. ( congratulations)!. Today is Monday and my application summary still doesn't show anything. Is it typical for the people who didn't get accepted to hear back later? I didn't receive any email either. I would appreciate your thoughts on that.

    Have you received your email yet? Today i called them and she said the person who is emailing is out but mine doesn't show anything online either. I guess they notify the applicants who didn't get accepted after the ones who got accepted.

    I wouldn't make the assumption that they notify the accepted applicants first. The accepted applicants are more likely to post on here than the waitlisted and rejected students. And be mindful of the fact that 2-3 business days were lost last week due to the holidays. We'll all hear back at some point this week.

    Thanks for the reply. But western less likely happens to reject someone. They waitlist everyone. Their waiting list has as many students as the accepted ones.

    Don't worry, Wednesday was the last day before the long Thanksgiving weekend. You should be receiving some news this week. :)

    Annette924...Definitely agree with you. Thanksgiving did interfere with the schedule. Also, the feeling I have gotten throughout the application process is that WesternU seems to be lagging on things a little. For Nov 12 interviewees, we should all (or most) hear back this week I think.

    Usc110... Acceptance decisions are based on multiple factors: GPA, Experience, PS, Supplemental, Interview, Critical Thinking exam.

    So far it's blank under Decisions on the Application Summary page.

    I don't think they focus on GPA as much since mine isn't really that impressive and I got it. Honestly they are probably waiting to see how many people accept the offer then send out more offers.

    You are 100% right but other than multiple factors that influence the admission committee decision, there are some hidden factors too that no one knows what that is. I personally had 100s of hours experience and very high gpa and I got accepted into every single school I applied, but I have not heard back from western yet which shows there are other factors determine their decision other than experience, gpa, interview and essay.
