  1. Im a student at UWaterloo (Not Western) and I was wondering if we should be logging into our western email that we were provided for updates. Are we even able to login to this email; I tried two months ago but wan't able to. Thank you for any help, and good luck to all!!!
  2. im having anxiety that im forgetting to do something after this interview. Theres no form to fill out or anything like that to do after the interview right? Just a long painful wait?
  3. I felt ok walking out. I had tech issues where the audio and video cut out quite a few times and i had to get them to repeat one of the questions 3 times, and sometimes stop my interview response mid way for it to reconnect. i hope that they are lenient on that. Apart from that, the interview went by so fast! To everyone, I wish you the best of luck. This wait will be brutal but we're in this together. hopefully we will all do amazing!
  4. I received an update email! but they didnt say wat program they'll use for interviews? or i might just need to get new glasses
  5. Has Western sent emails regarding how the interview will take place online? m starting to wonder if i missed the email

  8. Time Stamp: 11:03 Invite/reject: INVITE!!! IP/OOP: IP SWOMEN (Y/N): No 2YGPA: 3.98 MCAT (CHEM/CARS/BIO): 130/128/131 Essays (X/8): 6/8 - I didn't write an About You because I thought it was for academic explanations and things like that. It really confused me. I think my essays were choppy and didn't flow too well but they had great content. Congrats to those who were invited! For those who weren't, Western is missing out on an excellent candidate, don't sweat it!
