Oh man. Like night and day compared to BYU. Utah's looking more appealling.

I am mostly worried about the average age being 28. As I am a 22 year old right out of college.... I do still like to go out every once in awhile.... and I am not sure I will be able to connect with people who are at such different places in their lives....
BUT there are a lot of things I love about the school..... I am pretty torn.

28 =/= 65

I think it will be more social than it comes off at first glance. Talked to a 2L on Tuesday specifically regrding this, as I am both older and single. She thought it was pretty reasonable socially. I hope some of you younger folks don't get scared off. Look on youtube for vid of the dean winning a dance-off.

I was told that a decision should be made on my application within the week a week ago. Now I'm just getting impatient, lol. D=

The status never changes, even after you're admitted/rejected/waitlisted.

Haha, yeah. I'm in the same boat. My application is now "in review" as of 3/31/2011 as opposed to "in review" as of 3/11/2011. At least it's a change of some kind!

We really are in the same boat that was the exact thing that happened to me 3/11/ "in review" to 3/31 "in review". Wait to look on the bright side at least it is some kind of a change.. One way or the other I just want to hear something!!

Yeah, I know, right? I'm in at two third-tier state schools and I'd like to hear back from at least one of my actually ranked schools. When I called admissions they told me that it would take "another week" to make a decision on my application but so far this is the only change I've seen. Hopefully this doesn't mean that I really got rejected and they are just waiting for me to get the snail mail rejection letter, lol.

Seat deposits are due the 15th, so they may be waiting to see what the class is going to look like to make a decision on your app. Good Luck!

Looks like there has been some movement a good friend of mine received her rejection letter today, I am hoping I am not in the same boat as I got a status update on 3/31.. hopefully those of you who are still waiting (including myself) will hear something soon!

They just changed the date to "04/07/2011" but I have still not heard anything. Also, it still says "Under Review"

$12,800 scholarship email today (for the first year only it seems like). :roll:

Hope someone else deserving gets my spot.

I just got a little white envelope that says that I have been waitlisted, sucks but better than being rejected. The letter says that they are willing to grant me an interview and I wanted to know if anyone has done that and what type of questions did they ask, thanks.

VSHAR... do you mind sharing your numbers (gpa/lsat)? I have still not heard anything from them which is weird because I have now heard from all the other schools I've applied to.

I agree. But a lot of people I met were also married. I don't know. I love the school but I am super scared of moving to a new place and then ending up having very few friends that I can truly relate to..... I work in an office where they are all around 28 and it is fun when we go out.... but that is pretty rare. I do not party all the time by any means.... I am just a litttle worried about it that is all.

A friend of mine last year interviewed. I believe it was a lot of 'why utah' questions, and questions about your PS, work experience, etc. Basically a chance to sell yourself to Dean Aguilar. It may have changed though, last year was the first year they did interviews.

Wait listed. Got the envelope in the mail yesterday but I am rocking a killer case of bronchitis so I guess my parents just didn't mention it assuming I'd be better today. It's not a rejection but, eh, I guess I'll have to see how it plays out. Unless they do phone interviews that's really not an option. Which is fine; not too bummed about it really. Like I said, we'll see how it plays out.

Cool. I'm going to be 3rd in the class. So you can be 1st or 2nd if you want.
