    IF you're LDS where are you going? I just wanted to get a feel for how many there are and where everyone is headed...

    Sorry to hijack your thread and I know this isn't your purpose in posting, but:

    Sometimes I think LDS students would do better to mix, mingle and associate with their friends of other faiths. A push for unity seems superfluous.

    Agreed...it happens naturally as jaap said. There are loads of LDS guys/gals wherever you will go to school. That said, for a good initial idea (around 200-225 applicants) of who is going where, check the predent acceptances board at the Health Professions office at BYU. I hear there may be something similar at the U and UVSC... It will at least give you an idea if you really are interested.

    Hey Catholics welcome too, but we limit it to that! :D
    C'mon, it's something he is interested in. We share a common bond and he is seeking that out. I don't see a problem with it. It's like saying UVSC students come together or whatever.

    I think asking for where people of one common faith are going is a legitimate question. It's just a certain minority wanting to know where that certain minority is headed. I know my wife has asked me plenty of times if there's going to be students of her faith at the school where I'm going because she will feel a lot more comforted in the beginning to know that there's something she shares with others there right when she gets there. It's purpose is not to segregate, but a means to feel comfortable in the initial stages of an uncomfortable predicament in a place foreign to them and what they're used to.
