I only applied to 4 schools this round, but really I just want to go to the University of Utah. I am a Utah resident and really want that in-state tuition. If I don't get accepted to this school I might just turn down the other schools because my fiance has a really good paying job that we'd like to keep for another year if I don't get accepted to Utah. Then I would reapply the next round for any schools.

So, the question is, am I being naive to put all my hopes into just one school?

Here's my stats:
3.98 GPA
3.97 science GPA
24 AA
25 TS
62 shadowing hours
200+ volunteer hours

Any comments and/or advice would be highly appreciated!

I submitted August 8th. Every other school has received my application except for Utah. Hopefully that's any day now.

Your chances are great. Just prepare for next cycle if you do plan on withdrawing your acceptances. Continue shadowing and volunteering, but I think you don't have to worry about re applying.

It's super competitive. There's no gutantee for anyone given the small class size. You fit the stats so it's not a crapshoot...given you are a resident of Utah. I'm assuming you are.
