Really had my hopes up for a call after that update. Ah guess I'm not that lucky. Anyone hear today?

Or they really hate me and decided to make me the first rejection. Oh the self pity!

Got an acceptance letter in the mail yesterday. Small white envelope, single sheet of paper. Updated on 2/23 as well.

Just withdrew my application. No longer will I have the S_____666 username, ha.

I just decided I wasn't willing to spend $37,262 on tuition when I could spend $10,280 elsewhere.

Good luck to the rest of you with your apps. I hadn't been accepted, I was IR 14 Jan.

I wonder why it has been so quite the last couple days? I guess they are done; only rejections left :?

My friend's cousin is a professor on Utah's admission board and he said they're still in the first round if admissions, so all hope is not lost.

Two got in yesterday via phone calls.

Question for anyone who had Utah first before the cycle- to those of you (that got in or haven't yet) during all the time you've had to not know about the U, that you've discovered a different school that youre liking more and may be your better fit overall? It happened to me, granted not in (yet?) but wonder if it was actually a lucky set of events to make me come to this realization.....?

Actually Utah has had the opposite swing in my choices. At first I was looking highest ranked school regardless of location, but in-state tuition plus a really affordable COL has brought Utah back up to the top of my list. Now I just need them to send me some serious $$$ in their "mid-march" scholarship packets

Utah was at the top of my list (if I ever get an acceptance) but I was accepted to Minnesota last week. So now I am not sure. I do want to practice in Utah and I still think Utah will have better job placement in the state, the question is how much better? Because I am sure Minnesota will place better in every other state, so it leaves more doors open.

I agree Minnesota probably carries a slighty better national reputation, however it's still going to be a very regional school. Rule of thumb, according to TLS, seems to dictate ITE: go to school in a region where you want to practice, unless it is a T14.

How does it look Pink? Good info or just stuff from the website? I want to find out more about their clinic opportunities and 1L and 2L summers.

I am so looking forward to March 15 and March 28.

Definitely good info, everything from dates/deposits to health insurance info and housing. There's info on all the courses (which can be found on the website), and on clinics/etc.

I'm actually sitting in on a class this afternoon, so I'll let you know how it goes!

BYU's tuition should be $10,600 this year. :wink:

Assuming you're LDS- its too bad they don't have a non-LDS halfway rate between the full and the LDS rate! At least its pretty similar to Utah. A bit off topic, but hoping you guys can share any input...has anyone found any good scholarship sites for non school funded scholarships?
