2018 Application Cycle

Recommended Posts

Got my 2018 re-application verified/submitted 2 days ago. Was on waitlist last year at a very close position. Good luck to everyone! Really looking forward to another interview again this year, Utah is on my top schools.

@hhag93 Sorry to hear you came so close, that must have been such an emotional rollercoaster! I bet this cycle you've got it in the bag!! Mind sharing your stats? A friend of mine that was 11th on the waitlist got in, last minute to the St. George Campus, what a whirlwind!!!

Good luck!

Good luck! Would you mind sharing your stats? This is my first time applying and University of Utah is my top choice for PA schools. Any advice for the first go around? I'm a Florida resident and saw that they prefer applicants with strong ties to Utah.

I have a 3.8 in BCP’s and a 3.6 cumulative. If this is your first time, they practically told me that a lot of people do not get in on their first try and have much higher chances the second round. Overall I loved the school. I even went and visited the St. George location this spring. It’s super competitive and I honestly was surprised to get the interview last year, but fell in love with the school. The interview was awesome and would be a breeze for anyone that knows the healthcare profession. Let me know how it goes!

@Fizzassist sorry, I just saw your response! Thank you so much for getting back to me. I have a slightly lower GPA so it sounds like I’ll be lucky to get an interview. I’ll keep you updated if I do! Thanks again

I took the CASPer test last night! It wasn't bad at all. What questions do you have about it? There is only one day left to take it before Utah's deadline I believe

I took it last night too! I thought it was interesting. I think my answers were short and this was the first time I ever heard about the test.

 I took it on the 25th also and only had time to write one sentence answers for a handful of the questions. I honestly thought the test was kind of fun, lol.

Same here @Adammn. I actually enjoyed some of the questions! It was an interesting format, and I felt crunched for time, but overall the CASPer test was kind of fun.

I took my Casper test Aug 8th and just saw today they sent my results to University of Utah and another program.  I would guess if were suppose to get a email it would take a couple days from now.  Hope this helps and best of luck to all of us

I also took mine August 8th and just received an email from the program today saying they have received my results and should expect to hear from them around mid-October. So you should hear back soon!
