Hello friends!  I'm a current first year PA student at UPAP! I just wanted to hop on here real quick and let you guys know about a resource for the application cycle. We have an email account set

Just wanted to add i feel like this has been the most positive forum I’ve been on thus far (this school). So i hope you guys are my classmates cause this is what we need during this!!

I just received an email from admissions. They said we should hear something hopefully by tomorrow, certainly by this weekend. Good luck fellow applicants, wishing the best for us all[emoji3590] Sen

Submitted my app on 5/5 and am scheduled to take the CASPer on 6/28. I took it last year but it looks like you can't submit old scores. Has anyone else taken it this cycle?

Yes, I just took my CASPer on 5/7. It was basically the same as last cycle just different scenarios. Good luck! I really wish I knew how I scored on it tho....

Yeah that part really stinks. I wish I could use my scores from last year! But I was able to reschedule so I take it on 5/20 to get it out of the way

Got an email saying they just verified all of my stuff and got my casper score today (05-28). Here were all my dates... 

 Submitted 05-11, verified 05-14, CASPer on 05-07

 

  • Monday, November 9th in Salt Lake City
  • Saturday, November 14th in St. George
  • Monday, November 16th¬†in Salt Lake City
  • Friday, November 20th¬†in Salt Lake City

If we are invited to get an interview we will be assigned one of these interview dates. They do not use rolling admissions. Good luck!

CASPA verified May 8th, submitted my app to U of Utah on May 11th, took the CASPer on May 7th.

Just received an email today letting me know they have my verified CASPA and my CASPer scores, and that my application is under review!

I got the same interview information as @htb13a. Long time to wait due to non-rolling admissions!

How did you guys answer the question on preference to campus location? I would prefer the Salt Lake campus but would accept St. George but I do not know if it looks bad to say this on the application. 

I told them I did not have a preference mainly because I don’t lol I’d just be glad to get into the program.

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!

Understandable. I think I am going to say I am okay with either because truly I just want a seat. I appreciate your opinion!

It will not look bad, they honestly just want to know. I went through this last year and believe me I regret not specifying that I would accept St. George if waitlisted. Also, they will give you an opportunity to make up your mind during interviews if selected. Good luck ūüôā

Submitted 5/26, verified today, CASper scheduled 6/9. Fingers crossed. Best of luck everyone! This is also my first application cycle. 

Those of you who took the CASper, what should I expect? Any way to prepare? 

Just use common sense, and make sure you can type fast enough. The CASPer site has a practice test I believe! The pro and con to CASPer is that you'll never know how you did, so it's one of those things that is mostly out of your hands. Literally all you can do is try your best! Hope this helps
