    Also, do you guys think the facebook group just doesn't have everyone who accepted on it? Because right now it looks like there are only 41 people. I'm wondering if all the spots have been offered and claimed and they are just not in the group. What do you all think?
    I don't think everyone who have gotten notices are on AN or the fb group. I was thinking about that too. There's a person on the fb group who doesn't have a fb and is using her boyfriend's fb

    Okay. I've really been trying to not look at the posts or comment or chime in or anything. BUT! I said it a few pages ago, but I knew it would take a little while for the whole alternate thing to sink in for you guys. I really feel for you guys because I was there for the past...year and a half (ugh!).

    Please learn from my experience. I was an alternate last year, reapplied and got a big fat "thanks, but no thanks". They won't tell you anything about your rank, if you get a better shot at being accepted next cycle, or anything. Trying to figure everything will get you no where. Yes, you'll still wonder if every email chime is them. Yes, the wait is AGONIZING. Don't over analyze because there's nothing TO analyze at this point.

    Keep moving forward! I'm so mad at myself for not applying anywhere else. It'll help kept your mind off it and you just may get accepted somewhere else!

    Really try not to dwell. I feel for you guys! Wishing you all the best of luck!

    BlueEyes! I think your completely right!! It's time to focus on something else! If I get accepted great! If I don't...oh we'll! I would at least know that I didn't waist my time! I appreciate the advice!

    But it does hurt to know that they are still planing to interview more people on TH. :-(

    If i recall correctly (and correct me if I'm wrong) they both received alternate letters.

    My guess for the interviews is that they invited at least 18, I think they have it set up that way with their groups of six rotation and they probably like to stick to that.

    Also, my guess is (and I could be wrong) that these first few people to decline spots won't necessarily open up a spot for anyone in the wait list (especially considering people on the wait list didn't hear until July last year). I wouldn't be surprised if they admitted more than 60 people (like 63 or something like that) because they expect that some people will turn it down. Like I said that's just my theory, hoping I'm wrong though!

    Hi guys, I have been doing some thinking and I think that the additional interview group, might have been the applicants that were supposed to be interviewed on the Saturday interview date that got cancelled-if that makes any sense? And based on statistics and fairness, I think Western decided to go ahead and reopen that cancelled interview session.

    I believe that since there has been applicants that also received acceptances on the same day that we all got alternate notices, Western has probably filled up close to the 60 seats...but because they still have interviews this week, maybe they have filled up 55 and 5 more or so will be filled up with either the new interviewees or us alternates.

    As of now, I have been planning my future as though my alternate email was a non-accept e-mail. Like Blueeyes has advised us, do not revolve your life around Western. Continue to apply for other programs ASAP and if Western does happen to accept you..GREAT! But if not, thats fine too because you would have had something else already planned.

    Thank you everyone on here...I truly mean it..and thank you Blueeyes for checking up on us and giving us your advice.

    P.S. Does anyone know how many alternates are on the list each year?
