    rawshrimp got a reaction from MDDM in Western Accepted/Waitlist/Regrets 2021   
    Nice and fingers crossed that it comes through! last year it was May 28th but our initial offers went our on May 12th (not 11th), so I would think it would be around 27/28. If you received HWL, obviously nothing is guaranteed but you will likely receive a call from the admission office (mine said no Caller Id) sometime on or after the first day WL movement begins, after unspecified have been notified of their campus assignment. an email will then be sent a couple of days after that.

    Received a high waitlist! Just a couple of quick questions: When can we expect initial offers to go out off the waitlist this year? Also, will Western literally call you on your phone or will there also be an email sent? Thanks for any help!

    Time Stamp: 9:12 am ET
    Accepted/WL/R: ACCEPTED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! (Unspecified)  (normal waitlist last year)
    IP/OOP: OOP
    SWOMEN (Y/N): N
    2YGPA: 3.82 (3.9 with my second undergrad degree, but I only did 1 year so I don't think it counted)
    MCAT (CP/CARS/BB): 128/129/127
    Interview Experience: I felt good immediately after, but then I started second guessing and doubting myself a minute later. Spent March/April dreading a waitlist/R. Looking back now - Westerns interview gives you a great opportunity to share who you are. I was positive and upbeat throughout my interview and really showed them how happy I was to be there. I shared my stories and tried to show them who I was with every single question. 
     
    I've spent 10 years on this forum reading through these threads and wishing I could write one of these one day. I started my undergraduate degree in 2011 and took 2 extra years to complete it cause my GPA was terrible (My GPA in my first year was 1.6 - I studied so hard but I had all the wrong study habits carrying over from high school). It has been a grind. I can remember going back into my basement for my 4th summer in a row studying for the MCAT all so that I could improve my CARS score from a 125 to a 129 (and of course, thats the year Western drops their cut off haha).
    I'm the first person in my family to go to university and now the first person to go to medical school. 
    I've seen so many of my friends start their lives, while I've been stuck in limbo. I've been out of school for 4 years trying at this dream. Being placed on the normal waitlist last year was HARD. I woke up every day that summer thinking I would get the call.. It feels surreal to get to this point. If medicine is truly what you want, KEEP GOING. Find that school that fits your strengths and give it your all. All you need is one. I feel like a weight has been lifted off of my shoulders. 
    If any one of you feels like you need someone to talk to or want more information or advice feel free to send me a message. So many people have helped me on this forum and written up such thoughtful and helpful responses. I know i couldn't have done this alone. I have a lot of people to thank  
    Cannot believe I'm finally here

    I am absolutely ecstatic that it's finally yellow and it's not my year. Seeing that CMA Instagram post has brought me so much joy and laughter today... (Sorry 2024s)

    Hello!
    Are people planning to do online versions of these courses, and if so which ones? I am very busy with work currently, and am hoping for one that would not be too time-intensive and would still be accepted by Western. Any recommendations would be very much appreciated

    Congratulations everyone!  Im out of reactions but I’m so happy for everyone on the HWL. That must have been one stressful night once the HWL calls stopped going out yesterday, but glad to see it all worked out. Hopefully we get similar news for NWL  
     
    I really appreciate everyone keeping us updated and coming back to post

    Just an FYI to calm peoples nerves; they were calling people off the high waitlist into Windsor straight away last year and there were quite a few people from the normal waitlist who got accepted so the same thing will most likely happen this year.

    Not enough accepted ppl declined London - thus some unspecified campus ppl got Windsor campus. This is worrying for those on the high waitlist and is a nail on the coffin for the normal waitlist

    well that sounds particularly scary - but this isn't much different than usual. I would doubt the HWL doesn't clear - but as always we will see.
