When is it? I went to UofU undergrad, so I wasn't planning on it, but I'm thinking about it now anyways.
According to the packet it's Monday, March 26th. How'd you like living in Utah for undergrad? I am from Michigan and went to college in Boston, so have no idea what it's like.
Luckily Salt Lake City is pretty cool, but it's definitely no Boston. Access to skiing/mt biking/hiking is awesome. You will definitely have to get used to the Mormon thing. It won't constantly interfere with your life in SLC, but you'll notice it, and if you end up working elsewhere in the state you'll need to be ready for it. I'm a non-mormon who grew up in Utah, so I'm acclimated, but I still despise its overbearing nature on our government and culture.
To reiterate though, SLC is a cool town, cheap COL, and the Mormon culture won't smother you there. You should definitely visit before accepting.
