  1. Me. I haven’t heard anything from then since they emailed me to verify the expiration dates of my certifications Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. I’m not really comfortable saying anything else. A friend in the program let me know because she knew I was anxiously waiting to hear back. Sorry! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. No. Drace retired in December and two faculty members resigned yesterday. So I think thats playing a role in the delay of rejection/waitlist emails. I’m planning for it to be a while and to just stop worrying about it. Hah Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. Emails for rejection/waitlist were sent out 1/3 last year, which was the Thursday before classes resumed. Classes don’t start back until 1/13 this year, so I would anticipate this Thursday or Friday. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. If its helpful to anyone, I made tables before I applied this year to better compare program costs for myself. For UAB I included associated program costs in addition to tuition rates and estimated (based on other programs' costs) additional fees to plan for, which I was not able to find on UAB's website. I will attach it, as it could be helpful for you guys. Just keep in mind I created it for my own personal comparisons with information I could find at different locations on their website and included estimates helpful to myself (noted in table) and the table itself DID NOT originate from UAB PA.

  6. Congratulations!!! What an accomplishment. Best of luck! Don’t know anyone in the PA program but I have a friend in the DO program. She loves it! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. Interviews ended November 5th. They will try to notify those accepted 3 weeks from then (just before thanksgiving). Last year they started making acceptance calls around 2 weeks after the last interview date. I’m not sure if they will be calling again this year, though. An email will for sure be sent. If they follow the same timeline, rejections and waitlists will be emailed in January. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. I’ve interviewed here before but it was in 2016. Some things have changed since then so my experience might not reflect their interview process now. Send me a message if you’d like to ask questions anyways. Good luck and congrats!! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. I drove last year and parking was a nightmare. It was full and still charged me to enter the lot. Planning to Uber this year so i don’t have to worry. Good luck and congrats on your interview! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. Congrats! I know in my interview last year my interviewer talked about a Texas rotation. A friend in a previous year went to Montana. So yes to local, but it seems there are other locations, too. A current student could answer better! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. Nope. They are interviewing into January this year so still quite a bit of time left. I’ve interviewed here before so hoping I can get another chance to earn a seat. It’s a great program! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. Submitted 8/20 (CASPA was already verified). Received email that they had received my complete application and a link to their portal to check my status on 8/26. Portal noted my supplemental application fee was received on 8/27 and letter of Rec requirement (from CASPA) received on 8/28. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. Just found in FAQs the statement “interviews are scheduled from September through February each application cycle.” Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  14. I’ve heard they could possibly interview up until March if the class isn’t filled. But I don’t know if they’ve ever had dates extending that far out in time before or not. Maybe a current student could help answer or scrolling through forums from previous years. I still haven’t heard anything other than all my stuff has been received. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  15. Thanks so much for the info! Did they make an official announcement on increasing the class size? Just curious if it’s something newly decided since it hasn’t been reflected on the website yet. Excited they are accepting more! Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
