Is the email you received the one where it mentioned it was sent to the committee for reviewing?... Oh man I submitted my secondary 7/18

Yes! Not sure what the timeline will be at this point. I would imagine the same e-mail is headed your way soon. Good luck!

After reading this thread I am not sure how I feel about the school lowering their GPA requirement but then not reviewing all applicants. I will be calling the school.

Hi everyone!

I submitted my secondary application earlier today and when opening up the prerequisite and repeated coursework worksheets again, they were blank. I uploaded them in the secondary application though. Did anyone else come across this?

Yes same thing happened to me too! I just assumed that the ones that show up blank are just for our reference because I uploaded 3 sheets of repeated coursework and the blank ones only show one sheet

Hey y’all! Did anyone get an interview invite yet? 

Also, did anyone have issues with transcripts from last spring or summer being updated? I’ve been freaking out because the admissions coordinator emailed me saying I had like a week before the deadline to get my transcripts in and update my classes to being finished as opposed to “in progress”. Luckily he gave me an extension, but I was worried it means this whole time my application has been thrown to the side as incomplete even though I submitted mid July

Hi! 

I had a similar issue. I received an e-mail saying that they needed my summer grades in order to move forward. I had to hustle to get my transcript in by September 1st. I was a little caught off guard because their website says you can have 1 or 2 outstanding classes at the time of submission, but the counselor informed me that was only for classes in the fall/spring before matriculation. Anyways, once I submitted my transcripts to CASPA and updated my application, I got an e-mail from Western saying that my application was complete and moving forward. I'm guessing that means I was on some sort of hold until they received the updated transcript? Who knows! I hope it all worked out for you! Good luck 🙂

Got an interview invite this morning! I chose the 11/14 date. Are they rolling admissions?

I’ve heard only few get early acceptances but they generally wait till all interviews are over to reach out.. IN MARCH!!

Hey everyone, got my interview invite this morning. I need some advice... I am in a really tough semester right now and really would benefit from interviewing in January so I had more free time to prepare. Does anyone know if it’s more beneficial to interview as soon as possible? Like maybe the select people on a rolling basis but then just don’t inform anyone until March...

Hi! I don't know from personal experience here, but when I went to the information session earlier this year they said that they do not do rolling admissions. But again who knows???! Good luck with your semester and congrats on the interview!!!

To anyone who got an interview today: when did you submit?

I submitted approx July 15, verified shortly after, but didn’t get the email that my application was actually ready for review by admissions until September 9, because I made a mistake and didn’t update my spring transcripts until end of August.

Yeah I heard they don’t tell anyone until late March so maybe it should be okay to do that... I will do much better at a later interview date and I think that’s more important In this case...

I also received an interview invite this morning, but I will be turning it down to pursue other options. Hopefully that opens a spot for one of you. I submitted on August 10.
