    Hi PharmDwt82, I would recommend to find a roommate in school especially P1. School can be very stressful and having a someone around to cheer you up and help you to study would be extremely helpful. I currently live with a P1 and a P3 and I help them study sometime and it has been a positive result in their test. In addition, Utah's weather is very unpredictable and it can be very dangerous to drive around and sometime your car might break down so having a person who can either carpool with you and rescue you during accident, it can be very helpful.
    As for location to live, you can chose whatever you like, the price varies from place to place. I currently live in South Jordan StoneBridge Apartment, you can afford a 3 bedrooms townhouse for a very affordable price ($1349). I would recommend you to ask your landlord how do they take care of the street during snow season because it can be very helpful in deciding where to live. There will be snow day and it will be hard to drive in the parking lot with icy road.
    As for the FB i can ask the current P1 liason to see when will they have the facebook group up.

    Hello, I interviewed at Roseman Henderson Campus on February 13 2018 and I was wondering if anyone can let me know if they got accepted. I have been looking at my phone 24/7 and it is killing me! I believe Dr. Park mentioned acceptance/waitlist/rejection emails will be sent out beginning of March but from the comments I have been reading, I believe the deposit to save your seat is due March 1st? So I am guessing they will be sending emails soon, unless our deposit is scheduled for later.

    Roseman is my top choice and I do not think I did well during the interview--I went to a lot of interviews but because Roseman is my top choice, I went through a nervous breakdown during the interview and did not answer the questions clearly :( Please let me know if you interviewed that day or anytime in February!

    It seems depending on the date you interviewed on will determine when your deadline for the deposit will be, if you are accepted of course. I was in your shoes when I was waiting for that call as well, trust me. I know it is easier said then done but it's best if you can find a way to just forget about it and relax. Keep your hopes up! Don't worry about how you think you did, I was tough on myself as well and I'm sure many others have done the same.

    There are apartments near the school where some students end up renting. It's a matter of convenience, some people live farther away because rent is more affordable.

    Getting roommate(s) really depends on you. you do save some money, but can you live with total stranger(s)? Some people get roommates in hopes they have a live-in study buddy, but it doesn't work like that; study habits could be different. some people lock themselves in their bedrooms immediately getting home from school, while others spend their whole time in the school library, and some take a more chill approach and have friends over/party. Also, some people are slobs, (despite saying they aren't)...more so when tests/studying take priority over doing dishes/housework. If you take a roommate be sure to screen, to make sure they are compatible/ok with your living style/habits/culture.

    Hey there! I totally agree, that’s why I had the idea I’d be on my own the first year and hoping to meet someone I can live with the next year. The thought of being on my own is just a little scary as i will be moving out of state and living on my own for the first time however I’m looking forward to it! Thanks for the insight.

    Still waiting!! I fell completely in love with Roseman while I was there but I'm worried I choked too hard since it was my first pharmacy school interview. Good luck!

    Hi PharmDwt82, i think the benefit of having a roommate, especially with 2 or more are much better than living by yourself. The reason why I said so is because it will be snowing in Utah during winter and your car could get stuck in the snow or it might break down due to whatever reason. If you have a roommate who is also a P1, you can always ask for a carpool to drive ESPECIALLY on FRIDAY which is test day. You do not want to miss a test on Friday due to some stupid reason as arriving late. Second reason I would get a roommate because if you plan to be involve in school as participating in organizations and events, you will need someone to remind you about those events and roommates are your best source of reminder. I would have missed a lot of events if there weren't for my roommates. In addition, some testes are harder than other so you sometime will need support of roommate to help you study for remediation.
    With all that being said, it is up to you to chose how to live. Let me know if you need anything else.

    Thanks for all of the info i really appreciate it!! Do you know when the process of financial aid begins? I have already done my FASFA and completed the required loan trainings/promissory notes. I am waiting for the financial aid of office to contact me but have not received any emails from them. I've already started my account on CORE ELMS getting my immunizations and what not. Am I worrying too soon?

    I was invited to interview April 9, Henderson Campus and only put that as my preference when I submitted the application. With that being said, my interview is ONLY for WAITLIST position, assuming it's because it late in the cycle. How often do people get taken off the waitlist?

    Oh wow I really thought about doing the dual program too, but it scared me. Do you start the MBA portion during the summer?

    Dear xyxyx, i currently live in a 3 bedrooms townhouse at STONE BRIDGE APT with the current rent of 1349 per month before utilities. There are 4 people in my house now and each of us pay about $50 for utilities. There are other more luxurious apartments which can go up to 1800 for a 2-3 bedrooms but they have garage and they clean the street more often during snow seasons.

    Dear pharmDwt82, you dont have to worry so much as the financial aid office is working their best to get you in. Once you get the seat, everything else will be ok. You can prepare by doing CORE stuff but dont overworry because it is still very early. You can start apartment hunting and finding potential roommate if you like or study top 200 to prepare for P1 year. Let me know if you need anything else

    Are you referring to the Henderson interview or South Jordan interview? Overall, the interview was great! Faculty and students are friendly and welcoming. I was told this interview was the last interview but the next interview and last one will be at South Jordan.

    Yes, I was referring to Henderson Interview Day. I know there is one or two more for South Jordan.
    When do you think they get back to applicants after the interview?
