  1. It won't look bad on the application, but just know that if you put down only Salt Lake, they may pass you up if the seats in SL are filled but there are still spots open in St. George (and vice versa). It's up to you though. I do know that at last year's interviews they were given one last chance to change their campus preference on their applications, but I don't know if they will do that again this year. Best of luck to you!
  2. Hey Elsa51! Thanks for setting it up! I don't see it on Facebook though.
  3. Someone said they took 8 people off the wait list last year. I'm not sure if that's accurate though. Fingers crossed for you!
  4. I did the tour, which was very low key and informative. UVU has a great campus, and some really cool perks for students and families (hello daycare, free pizza, rock climbing wall, and camping equipment rental!) The tour is led by a student. I wore nice jeans and a blouse with a jacket. Others there dressed up, but it definitely wasn't necessary. It is a walking tour though, so wear comfortable shoes. One massive benefit to attending the tour (besides the stunning stained glass mural in the library) was getting to know some of my fellow interviewees. We even met up after the tour to chat further. It's always nice to have some familiar faces and names when you are in a stressful situation right? Also, these people are going to be my future colleagues as a physician assistant. I don't view them as competition, but as friends. I didn't count exactly how many interviewees were there for the interview. I think someone else estimated around 40 in an earlier post, and that seems about right. I heard back in under a week, but they tell you to plan on a little longer than that. If I could offer you all some advice, it would be to get a good night's sleep the night before, don't stress, and be yourself. It won't be as bad as your worst case scenario, and you probably won't nail everything perfectly (like we all hope to). Your interview experience will fall somewhere in the middle. I left my interview breathing a huge sigh of relief, and feeling like it was much better than I thought it would be. All in all, it is a very exciting program! Great PAs are going to come out of UVU, and I would be proud to call myself one. I hope I get the chance to! Good luck to you all!
  5. I applied in early May, interviewed in the August group and was selected for the wait list.
  6. The guy I know got accepted has a military and healthcare background, plus he was just a straight up stellar person. I'm really happy for him. He'll make a great PA. I didn't apply to Rocky Mountain mainly because of the cost, the fact that it is a private school, and I didn't want to take the GRE. (I've been out of school for a while.)
  7. I know of one person that was accepted from our August 10th group. I only applied to those two programs as well. I hope to see you at the University of Utah interview Farafish260! Good luck! I hope we both end up somewhere this year!
  8. I emailed the school about the waitlist ranking, and they are not letting waitlist candidates know where they are on the list as of right now. No word on if that will change after interviews are done and slots are filled.
  9. Sorry man! I wish you the best with the other schools you have applied to. I hope this is your year! It was nice to meet you last week!
  10. Just got notification that I am waitlisted. Good luck everyone!
  11. Yes, J Dawgs is in Orem. It's just up the hill, East of UVU about a mile or so.
  12. Okay friends! Let's meet at J-Dawgs around 6:00 next friday at 287 E University Parkway (in Carillon Square). I look forward to meeting you all!
  13. Hey Farafish260 and JHHay30 (and anyone else coming on the 9th/10th)! I'm totally up for grabbing a bite after the tour. It would be really reassuring to go in Saturday morning knowing a few people. Let's do the tour, and then go grab a J-Dawg and a Coke. My name is Heidi.
