UAB sucks unless you want to go to medical school. They milk you for every penny you have, and still screw you over. The "advisors" constantly screw up your schedule, if they indeed make time to "meet" up with you. There have been several muggings on campus & one murder right across the street from the business building. Some of my professors are very amazing and actually no what they are teaching…some though, don't even speak english and argue with you about them being right on subjects when you can factually prove them wrong…and they are sexist. I have had 2-3 reallllly good teachers, but thats it. I transferred from another school and they refused to take over 1/2 of my credits, and lost the 1/2 that I had left…they discount other schools education due to the fact that those classes were not taken at a Alabama school—stupid classes like Public Speaking…so I guess you have to take redneck public speaking 101 to qualify for that transfer…overall UAB sucks unless you want to work in the medical field…don't go here unless you have no other options…
