I'm a first year PA student at WesternU. I thought I would update you guys about this and calm most of you down. First off, we just went online this past Thursday. The faculty are working diligently t

Anyone else losing their minds ? 😅😵

To those still waiting on an interview, I have just declined my invite to interview after being accepted to my top choice. Hope this trickles down to find someone deserving.

Hi everyone! I will be going to the Preview Day this upcoming Sunday and want to ask opinions on if it is best to go alone or ok to bring a friend/family member? Also, how to dress? Obviously professional but like business casual or suit up?? And if I do bring someone along should they be well-dressed as well? I know Im overthinking this but I want to be sure and see what everyone else thinks, or see what everyone else saw at the last Preview Day. 

you mean on saturday...?

I had the same questions but ended up wearing business casual-pants and blouse and flats. But when I went everyone was sooooo casual like wearing shorts and flip flops. Hope that helps!

Congratulations @aprilantol27 😄 Any advice for us with upcoming interviews? I have mine in February.

Thank you! 🙂 I think so far I’ve learned to try to avoid too many generic answers. The schools where I am more open about myself is where I get accepted. One of the schools that rejected me was the one I gave all the cookie-cutter answers. Try to show them how you are unique and bring out your specific strengths! If there is something special about you or your experiences, make sure to let them know!

 

Good luck to you! 🙂

How do you guys feel about their gpa tier system? I am not planning on reapplying here this year since I know they will not read my application. I feel like its unethical to accept applications and fees from applicants who meet the program requirements but not read their application due to the way they place us in tiers. any one else have thoughts on this?

Yes, I would say it is unethical. I'm grateful to this forum and your post because I would've otherwise not known about this tiering system. I struggled in undergrad and came out with a low GPA. This was years ago. Now it's all coming back to haunt me because, despite my 3.92 post-baccalaureate at 3.9 science GPA, my undergraduate transcript and CASPA's not superseding repeat courses bring those numbers down to 3.10 overall and 3.40 science. It's simply impractical to even keep my app in the ether, so I'm going to withdraw and not reapply next year. It's a shame; I would've liked very much to have had a shot at Western. 

Best of luck to the incoming class, and to those who are still awaiting correspondence from Admissions.

Hello! Congratulations! I was wondering if you would share any information on the interview process? I have my interview on Wednesday and recently read they use MMI format and am freaking out! I’d greatly appreciate it!

I just received an acceptance yesterday! I am so incredibly excited! I interviewed 11/14.

Does anyone know if there is a Facebook group for accepted students yet? 🙂
