I loved uab.BrightPreMed and Medical
I loved uab. I loved the respect I got from people outside of the school for studying pre-med. however, hard work is looked over due to competiveness. the competition is STEEP. some faculty will treat you horrible and will even be racist. some faculty will do everything they can for you. your best bet is to look at rate my professor. it will help sooo much because some teachers are ridiculously hard. if you are not good at science. do not waste your time here. science is serious and it is difficult. I hate how students here are, many wont speak and are fairly unfriendly. I don't think anyone here likes uab, we just deal with it to get a decent future career. school spirit is basically non existent lol. with the exception to basketball becaused football s u c k s. omg its sad. parties get old quick. don't come for the college experience come too work long story short

UAB is an "adequate" University.BrightPublic Health
UAB is an "adequate" University. Its great in nothing except medical school. For all other purposes this is just a run of the mill school. The campus is ugly stretched out over an even uglier city. The social scene sucks, people are generally absorbed in friendships outside of school because most people are locals or foreign, like asian or indians. Its hard to get plugged in and the college "life" sucks. The university tries to milk you for every cent, like making you buy 250 dining dollars regardless if you want their shitty food or not, and there are plenty of other things. Keep in mind run of the mill!!

I do not like this school.BrightNursing
I do not like this school. Students are unapproachable and downright mean. Sometimes I feel like I'm in jr. high all over again, that's how immature students are. Greek life is obnoxious. They are so rude and inconsiderate! I have made a whopping 3 friends, 2 live off campus. Classes are fine. I almost always feel isolated and alone, going to class is the only time I'm ever happy (I'm typically a very happy person). There is nothing to do on campus if you don't party. I have never gone out, for me the most exciting a Friday night gets is Cold Stone and homework.

Bottom line, if you aren't Greek, your life will suck. Out of state students, before you get in your car and drive 11 hours to get here, don't. This school is awful don't come here.
