    yep, I read it wrong, I was comparing to the reported board scores of another school and they had theirs listed for each year, not separated into graduating class. i thought this was the same. thanks

    Anyone know if the match data for 2018 is public? I have 2017 and 2016.

    My background check took 3 weeks from the time I registered.
    My background check took 3 weeks to show up. My first drug test was dilute and I had to take another one 3 days ago, so I'm still waiting for that to show up. But, they receive your background check/drug test results a few days before the portal is updated. The date on the portal will reflect that.

    Where does it show that it is done? Mine has a date for it, but nothing else saying passed or whatever. I assume that means I passed everything?

    Also, bumping my q about 2018 match data. I have decisions to make!

    Yeah mine just has a date. I'm assuming if there was a failed drug test or background check that they would contact you.

    2018 match data: http://www.rvu.edu/wp-content/uploads/2018/09/Residency_MatchList_2018.pdf

    Super helpful. From the standpoint of someone who has only DO acceptances (so far), but wants anything but FM, seeing so many surgery and ortho matches is pretty great. 8 ortho matches is insane. RVU seems to be a great choice for someone who thinks surgery is the right fit (like me, though I acknowledge that changes).

    I also have some inside info on what they really care about in apps for next years people, as well as a pretty funny story, but I'm trying to figure out the best way to share that without sharing too much and also without doxxing myself. Most of the stuff I know is already posted about pretty widely on this thread, though.

    Any December interviewees got calls or emails yet? I got nothing yesterday, but they said Monday or Tuesday, so maybe news will come today...?

    Hi everyone. I am planning on attending RVU in July. I'm going to the accepted students day on Friday March 29th and staying Saturday and Sunday to look at apartments. If anybody wants to meet there and look at apartments with me, shoot me a PM. Looking forward to meeting some fellow classmates!

    Additionally, if any current students have any advice that they'd like share regarding living in the area, also please PM me.

    Hi all! I have been unable to find this information on this thread (sorry if it has already been answered) or in any of the emails/documentation. I was wondering what forms of ID are necessary to bring for an interview. Would I be safe bringing state ID and passport? Thanks for the help.

    Hello!
    Do any current students live in Denver while going to RVU? I plan on attending RVU in the fall and was hoping for some advice on the various Denver neighborhoods. Any help is appreciated :). Thanks!

    Is there a link to accepted students day or a way I can find out more information about it? I haven't seen anything and would definitely be interested in a day like this. Thanks!

    Hello! First year RVU student here. Just made this account to help some of you out and provide some insight. I actually live in Denver and love it. The commute to campus is not bad and it makes it easier to go to downtown during the weekends. Feel free to PM me or post on here with any questions!

    Thank you for doing this!

    How do you feel about the merger? I was recently accepted and really like RVU-CO as a school, but worried that the merger will change the dynamics of the school especially with the possibly of staff leaving.

    St George University (Caribbean school) owned by Medforth bought/merged with RVU. The dean of RVU announced this merger awhile ago and there has been a lot of speculation about what this will bring to RVU.

    Congrats on your acceptance! So, before this became official, the Dean had a mandatory talk with my class and talked through what was going on with the situation. He also opened the discussion and answered the questions we had about it too. I was impressed with his attempt to be transparent. He told us it doesn't change the day-to-day of RVU and honestly, I believe him. I haven't noticed anything different. Additionally, to my knowledge at least, the only faculty that are leaving are because of retirement reasons. So my life as a first year hasn't changed during this time and I really am not that worried going forward.

    Just got put on the alternate list :~)

    Anyone know chances of getting taken off? I know they accept 100% of their accepted pending but I don’t think I’m on that list.

    Does anyone have the code to get a discount for a car rental through enterprise? I used it for my interview, but can't seem to find the page that I found it on last time.

    Heads up, when I interviewed it was much cheaper without the code. I would look at the price with and without the code.

    Was anyone placed on the accepted pending space list last year? Curious to see when you were officially offered a spot
