  1. I finally submitted just now! I had been putting it off because I hadn't taken the GRE yet, but according to their website I could have submitted before taking it. I guess I was worried I was going to do terrible on the GRE and didn't want to waste my application fee. But my fears were unfounded. My unofficial score was over 300. Crossing my fingers that my writing score is acceptable...
  2. I got an interview invite this afternoon for Saturday September 21. Has anyone else heard back?
  3. From what I've read on here, and heard from others, it sounds like they've accepted ~20 people so far. Seems like they are saving the last ~10 seats for this last set of interviews.
  4. I haven't heard back yet either. I applied on July 31. Seems like they are probably going to wait until the September 1 deadline so that they have all of their possible candidates available.
  5. Did anyone else get an email yesterday from RMU that was addressed to "Dear First Name?" Gave me a chuckle to get such a personalized email. Haha.
  6. There is a thread for U of U already over in the schools section, just in case anyone else is wondering.
  7. Miguel, I feel similar to you. Rocky Mountain is my last choice simply because of the cost. If they are the only school I am able to get into though, then I would still go. I would also be grumpy about the cost in the end, but feel like I need to get this career move going and not wait another year. Crossing my fingers though to get in at UVU or U of U. I have a former coworker who went to RMU and he really liked it. He didn't say anything about regretting the cost, but I didn't specifically ask him about it.
  8. I just submitted early this morning (around 0100) and was verified around 0700. Now to patiently wait with the rest of you.

    Experience question

    5 years ago my wife and I participated in a sweat equity program to help build our current home and 4 other homes in our neighborhood. I'm wanting to include this experience since it involved helping others in my community that fell within a certain lower income bracket, but I want to label it correctly in CASPA. My current thinking is that I can mark it as "volunteer" and also check that it was "compensated." Even though we didn't receive any money, we built equity in our home by building it ourselves along with the help of the other families. Does this sound ok? Or should I label it as something else completely? Thank you!
  10. I spoke with them on the phone a month or two ago and they told me that they weren't doing early interviews this year.
  11. Thank you. That is helpful. I'm just being paranoid.
  12. I have requested letters of recommendation from 3 people (a PA, a previous manager, and a former professor). The professor has told me that he may not get the letter done in time due to his busy schedule. I asked another professor if she could and she has agreed. My dilemma is that I know professor 1 will be able to write a much better LOR than professor 2. Let's say that they both end up writing the LORs and get them submitted on time. The schools I am applying to only require 3 LORs. Does anyone know which one would be disregarded? Would it go in the order that I sent the requests out? Or would it go by the order of which the LORs are actually received by CASPA? I wouldn't want professor 2's letter to take the place of professor 1's unless professor 1 were not able to submit the LOR in time.

    Transcript Entry Help

    To account for the transfer credits you will need to submit the transcript from the school where you took those courses. My understanding is that you don't need to include them on the second transcript as transfer credit. I don't have an answer to your second question, unfortunately. Good luck!
