Got the email last week that they are screening my application! Good luck everyone! Invitations will go out in October. Has anyone been to the school before? If so, what kind of vibe did you get and what are the facilities like?

I got the e-mail that my application has been received and verified through CASPA on 06/14. As Khwaaa states, decisions regarding interview invitations won't be sent out early to mid October.

Good luck everyone!

I'm currently living in Utah and went to a tour of the facilities and meeting with an admissions counselor. I was really impressed with both, plus I love living here in Utah. Cost of living is cheap and the weather doesn't get too extreme.

Did they ask you to send your GRE scores separately from CASPA or had you not requested them to CASPA when they asked?

@CorptoPA They wrote "Please send your official GRE scores via CASPA using our school code (3660).  This will enable us to continue reviewing your application." 

I ordered them from the ETS website to be sent directly to the school with the code 3660 and the department PA (although I guess it just sends them to CASPA under the school name?). They said it should take 5 business days to arrive so I suppose I better follow up tomorrow.

I ordered them from the ETS website to be sent directly to the school. They should already have them through CASPA however. 

GRE scores sent to CASPA have individual codes for each school that you apply to. Meaning, if you apply to 10 schools, you would need to send your GRE scores to CASPA 10 times using 10 different school codes. Their message means you didn't send your GRE scores to CASPA using RMU's school code. They are specifically asking you to send it through via CASPA.... not directly to the school. At least that is how I interpret it.

@CorptoPA Correct! I used the code they provided in the email (3660) when I ordered the scores which is the Rocky Mountain CASPA code (even though in my mind I was thinking I was sending them to the school). I will follow up with ETS and CASPA if they are still not there tomorrow.

@WildcatPA I'm in the same boat. Have you heard any updates? My GRE was sent on the 16th and I haven't heard any updates yet.

Hello all, 

I will be traveling to from out of state and plan on staying for a few days on either side of my interview. I have a few ideas on places to visit, but I was wondering if you all had any suggestions for "must sees" or places to stay. 

Thanks!
