Hey i am thinking about going to grad school in utah and was wondering if anyone is a student there right now. I would be going for an MBA so anyone with advice or opinions of the school please share. I am not familiar with utah at all so what resorts are close to the school? i know its in salt lake but any others? Thanks a lot
i live in ut, and go to the u of u. i'm still undergrad, so i don't know how the grad school is, but utah is a sick place. 7 ski resorts all within a half hour, a few more probably 45 minutes away. lots of outdoorsy stuff, plenty of hikes and mtn biking trails in the fall and summer. and southern utah is badass for that hiking/biking too.

I applied there for grad school in biology this past year. Got an interview, but didn't end up getting accepted. My interview weekend was awesome, haha. I went back country skiing at Alta the afternoon after some interviews and then got on the plane back home that night.
I think it would have been a cool place to go. Before getting rejected, I'd say I was deciding between there and UT-Austin. I kind of wanted something different from CU where I went for undergrad, so I was hesitant to live in SLC. The people I met were the coolest and most normal of all the graduate students I met though. I was worried that SLC wouldn't be a great place to live not being an undergrad, but I'm sure its fine. I'm here in Austin now, which I really like a lot but obviously skiing is out. I'm not really bummed I'm not there cause I think it would be too frustrating balancing the work/school requried in grad school with epic skiing days there. Such a distraction.
I'll take my occasional trips there and be satisfied.
is it an easy school to get into? im applying there, and it looks like a good ski school. would an 87 average be a good enough grade to get in?
It's not easy being white,
It's not easy being brown,
It's not easy being bright,
It's not easy having kids all over town.
if you have a name you can get in.
in response to the thread creator...The U has a good business grad school, and SLC is a fun place.
PM me for an invite to the NS snowboard cult..
i hear the partying in SLC is lacking. U of Utah is my safety school if i dont get into DU or UVM

The U is sick. Yea partying may not be as crazy as other schools, but theres still plenty of parties. I came from a huge party school to here and it's a little different but it's so nice to be so close to all the resorts.
Hey for out of state undergrads this is pretty sweet. Makes it super cheap, college wise that is.
