I had my interview this morning and it went well. The person who interviewed me was amazing! I'm so glad I had a wonderful opportunity with this program! Truly so thankful!! I wish I wasn't limited with the questions and time spent with my interviewer.. I hope she got a good understanding for who I am. I forgot to mention all my volunteer experience because of the way my questions were structured, but I still hope I stood out to them! 

It's unfortunate that some interviewers had a bad experience with this program. I'm from the local area, so I've heard great things about Western and my interview experience with them went great, as well.

I'm so anxious for the decisions to come out!

That's great to hear! I'm also local and have my interview on March 4. I was wondering if you would be able to give insight on if the whole interview ended up taking around 1 hour like the email said? Was a little confused on the process with check in times and everything.

I really don't understand what Western is looking for in a candidate. This is my fourth interview with WesternU MY FOURTH INTERVIEW !!!! and I was rejected again 😭 year after year I've shown professio

Received an acceptance to WesternU! I interviewed on Oct 8, and was very surprised to have a decision back so early as they told us to expect to hear back in March. Good luck to everyone out there!!!

I just got an update to my status. I went from alternate to being admitted! I’m still in shock! 😮😭😃🥰

The interview alone is only 20 min! It’s over so fast haha.  When you log in to zoom, you will be with other candidates while they take role then they will send you to your interview room where you will interview with 1-2 faculty. You will be asked 4 questions and you have 5 minutes to answer every question. It is seriously so fast. I have to maintain the integrity of the questions obviously, but my best advice is to have like 5 personal stories that you can relate to ANYTHING they may ask you. If you can find a way to relate your responses, no matter what the question, to why that’s going to make you a successful PA student/ why you’re ready for PA school or why you want to be a PA, they will love that!

Oh I see, thank you very much for the explanation! Also congratulations on your acceptance!

Received an interview invite today via email, scheduled for 3/4. FYI, there were 4 other interview slots for that day when I signed up via the portal; it did not look like there were any other interview days available (but they may open them up later?). Best of luck to those with upcoming interviews and still waiting to hear something.

You have to email a copy of your acceptance letter and drivers license to 2023mspa@gmail.com and they will send you a link 

Have you heard back or gotten a link for the facebook page from them yet? I emailed soon after I was accepted but haven't heard anything since.

interviewed on 02/11 and was told I would hear back in mid-March. I wasn't a fan of the interview, only 4 super basic questions. I didn't feel like the interviewer tried to connect with me, I left the interview feeling weird, maybe that's a sign this school isn't the best choice for me

I also interviewed that day! Did they say how soon we could hear back? Or is everyone just expected to hear back in March? /:

Or is the interview completely separate once invited and not based on stats after 

I'm a first time applicant, and I got an interview but still waiting on a decision. Hence, I would take what I say with a grain of salt. Getting an interview is a big thing, so congrats! I read a few posts from the previous years to get a gist of the timeline. Based on what I have read, it seems that for the most part that they focus on the interview after. Since they base their interview dates on GPA, I'd assume most of the people that are interviewing on your date have similar stats. Additionally, there were a good chunk of people who interviewed on the last date in previous years that got in!  So, I personally think you got a chance!

This is actually a thing. Out of all my interviews, I felt I only really connected with one and felt that was the program for me. That's where I am going and I am beyond happy with my choice!! 🙂 The interview is a big part. Remember, the interview is also about if YOU accept THEM and if their program is a fit for you. Good luck!

Do you by chance know how many of those 53 members are accepted students? It seems like 3 are moderators from the class of 2022 but was wondering bc of the other 50 are accepted students than half the class is already filled which should give the remaining people who are waiting to hear back a realistic idea of how many seats are open. I know they say "90% of students" hear back in mid-march but im assuming almost all are rejections and waitlists.
