    UAB IS A GREAT SCHOOL IN THE HEART OF A GREAT CITY

    They were so personal and helpful to me during the admissions process. I can tell they care about me and my success as a student. My advisor is wonderful and always so excited about where I'm going with my life.


    Course Curriculum - 

    I think the curriculum is very fair, preparing students for both medical school and research careers. It provides a solid foundation for the subject as well as course requirements giving you a rounded understanding of the material.

    BLAZING THROUGH UAB

    Proximity to home made it an easy choice but it is also a medically focused school and is the biggest in my state so it seemed like a good option for my career. My major in BMD isn't found in many other universities.


    Course Curriculum - 

    The curriculum of my major is set up well especially for those seeking to apply and attend medical school. It covers a lot of what they will be covering the first 2 years. This is why it is known to be a stepping stone to medical school.

    THE UNIVERSITY OF ALABAMA AT BIRMINGHAM REVIEW

    They have one of the best nursing schools and a great medical reputation. They provide lots of opportunities for research. UAB is very diverse and welcoming to every student that comes there. It feels like a home away from home!


    Course Curriculum - 

    They have a great course curriculum. The teachers keep it interesting, and what they teach can be applied to the workforce. I have the opportunity to enjoy learning, and I am academically challenged in many subjects!

    I LIKE THE BIG COLLEGE EXPERIENCE

    Football school looked fun on tv good scholarships are given big Greek life presence on campus a plethora of options for majors and minors. Research and shadowing opportunities were plentiful. A huge quad and all the buildings are in walking distance of each other.


    Course Curriculum - 

    I think there could be more options for classes on such a big campus with a lot of professors there are definitely more course offerings to be given. I do like how many minors are offered and I wish I explored all the different ones.

    I LOVE MY COLLEGE, IT'S A GREAT PLACE TO BE.

    This college is close to my home and it offered a great scholarship package. I want to practice law in Alabama, so it made sense to attend here. I went to a large university, so having a large university feel with the smaller law school community appealed to me.


    Course Curriculum - 

    I like the current curriculum offered by UA Law, however, I think Legislation Regulation should be replaced by Evidence as a required course. Additionally, I think that the legal writing department is not emphasized enough.
