Who else is applying to the UofU this cycle?? I just got their email said that interview invites will be sent out no later than the 2nd week of December. Anyone have any insight on last years interviews or what they have thought of the school?

I applied to U of U for this cycle as well! The last thing I have heard is invites will be sent out the 2nd week of December, but haven't received anything yet. We should hear back sometime this week! Fingers crossed for both of us. Let me know if you hear anything and I'll do the same. Good luck!

It is my top choice. Also applied to Chapman, NAU, CS Sacramento, CS Long Beach, UNLV, and University of Washington. Have an interview at NAU, haven't heard back from anyone else as of yet.

Awesome, it's my top choice as well. Are you a Utah resident? I applied to Touro Nevada, Rosalind Franklin, Nova Southeastern, EWU, NAU, and University of Montana.

Got accepted to Touro, and had an interview at Rosalind. Still waiting on the rest!

I am unsure of exactly what my residency status is at the moment. I am originally from Utah and claim it as my state of residence, but by the schools standards I am not a resident since I have not been there consecutively for over a year. The University of Utah told me I would be enrolled as a resident student if I get in because I have been enrolled there before (1 semester), but I applied as an out-of-state student because that's what the advisor told me to do. I believe I am being considered out-of-state until official acceptance.

Awesome job getting an acceptance and interview! I hope you get Utah as well since it is your top choice.

Hey guys! I applied as well and have not heard anything except for that mid November email like utahpt1! I checked the 2016 Utah feed from last year and a person got an invitation for an interview on 12/14/16, a Wednesday. All this waiting has been making me anxious! I'll let you both know if I hear anything as well.

Good luck!!

Awesome! Good to know, thanks for the information. Waiting is the worst, but definitely less anxious knowing that I'm not the only person that hasn't heard anything.

I'm so stressed out. All I can think about. Reviewing my stats compared to others that got interviews last year makes me confident, but the fact we haven't heard yet gives me anxiety. Still plenty of day left, hope we hear something today!

Sooo maybe when they said no later than the second week of December it didn't mean only business days? ‍♀️

Hopefully it doesn't mean only business days and/or they are just running a little behind what they planned.

Mookie, you get interviews for both Sac and NAU? I feel like they are just as competitive as Utah from what I've heard. So I'm hoping it's good news getting interviews at both of them.

Good luck everyone! If we all hope hard enough, we'll hear back tomorrow or Monday.

No unfortunately I didn’t get in. I knew these two were competitive so it wasn’t a huge surprise but still bummed. I didn’t know Utah was as competitive too. I’ve only been in California my entire life so I’m looking for change in out of state schools.

Although I’ve heard from other friends that their schools are behind on replies back too...

My friend works for NAU and she found out from someone in the DPT department that for out of state students, if you didn't have at least a 3.7 GPA AND a combined score of 311 on the GRE they didn't even consider you. They just took my money and ran... ‍♀️

That’s weird considering out of state pays more... oh well hopefully my other choices work out *crossing fingers

: Biology Major (concentration in pre-physical therapy)
Cum GPA: 3.67
pre-req GPA: 3.88
science GPA: 3.41
GRE: 149 Q, 150 V, 4.0 W
Observation hours: 105 total
LOR: 2 PT's, 1 employer, 1 professor

compared to some stats I've seen I'd say mine are pretty average, but I'm a UT resident so idk if that played in my favor or not. Also not sure how heavily they weighed the supplemental essay. Good luck to the rest of you waiting to hear back!!

Yeah, if you're curious. Just because you asked, not trying to compare or flaunt or anything like that.

Spanish major
Overall GPA: 3.91
Science GPA: 3.73
GRE: 155 verbal+ 158 quantitative = 313 cumulative with 5.0 writing

I had like 1100+ observation hours because I've been a tech for 3 years and did an internship as well.
I had a lot of volunteer hours in random things too.
My letters of rec came from 2 PTs, 1 teacher, and 1 supervisor at one of my jobs.
I'm also currently a Utah resident--they say on their website I believe that they don't have preference for in vs. out of state, but who knows.

I hope the invites are still trickling in and that they would be nice enough to send a rejection letter. Let me know if I can help with anything else! Good luck!

Okay, I'm glad it's not just me. I wonder how much longer it will take though O_O I am trying to get all my travel arranged for that month. I know it is a competitive program to get into...

For which school?
I’m so sorry to hear that. I know it’s very heartbreaking to receive a rejection. I’ve collected one myself so far, and I’m sure it won’t be my last.

Try to keep your chin up. Good things will come, and happy days are still ahead.
