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!!!

There's actually no separate supplemental/secondary application for Western U anymore, starting this cycle! Everything to apply for the program is all on CASPA now because they said their secondary ap

Out of the 54 of us I think less than 10 are applicants from this cycle, the rest of us are from the class of 2022! Most applicants do hear back mid-March even those that are accepted so don't lose ho

What did it say? I didn’t receive anything:/

It just said to be safe during COVID-19 and the wildfires in California. It had an email address and phone number to contact if I need any help lol. It also told me to schedule a virtual session with student advising. That was random but pretty sweet

Hi everyone! Current WU PAS-1 here please feel free to reach out if you have any q's, good luck!

Hi,

Thank you for reaching out!

If you could go back to the year prior to matriculation, what would you do to prepare for year 1?

Also, do you have any organizational advice to survive year 1?

Does Western have anything in terms of student support for those who are struggling academically?

Thank you for you time,

Lauren

Thank you! Looks like the 8th is the only day available, same for you i assume? 

Yepp. I think I'm going to hold off on accepting it for right now and contact them Monday to see if they'll have any other dates. 

From what they told me over the phone a few days ago, interviews will be conducted next week through November. I'm just not sure when other dates will be available to pick from. 

Good luck to us both though!

Do you have any insight on when they will start interviewing applicants 

Now through early march, im not sure how it will change with COVID this year. Check your portal first, the information usually shows up there before than in your email box

Hi Lauren,

Do not do anything before you matriculate, enjoy your time off. You will be doing enough studying while you are in school, it is a whole different ball game!

Do not procrastinate, write down all your deadlines for the week and the month. It is super important to stay super organized and knowing what to prioritize. Study a little bit of each topic each day. You will learn what works for you once you're in a program !   

Yes WesternU has tutors and a learning education office. Although 98 may seem large, you will form a connection with one or more of your professors, who will help you with anything. 

Good Luck!

Does anyone know what the interview format will be? In person, it has always been MMI but will it stay MMI on Zoom? I'm having conflicting emotions being invited to the first interview date because there is so much unknown and they accept the majority of students mid to late March anyways.

I received an interview for 10/8! If you happen to see this in the next 12 hours I'd love some tips/insight on what to expect!

Good luck tomorrow! I will also be interviewing then. Last cycle it was a MMi with traditional questions and one curve ball station
