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!!
questionI've been accepted for MPH Epidemiology. I'm interested in Biomedical research. UAB is very popular for MPH programs. How good are academics?
