Hi Everyone! :smile:

 

I wanted to start a thread for everyone who will be applying to UAB's Surgical Physician Assistant Program for the entering class of 2013! This is my very first time applying and I am very excited to get going so if anyone else is applying to UAB lets start this journey together! I wish everyone well in this application cycle:=D:

Hi there! Thanks for responding:=D:. Yea waiting is the fun part....not lol. I haven't turned in my secondary yet because I am waiting for CASPA to send them off already :-/ I submitted mine back in the beginning of May so I've been waiting a looong time lol. I think I'll go ahead and send my secondary to UAB just so they'll already have it. I went to UAB for undergrad. Are you from around here?

I think you can go ahead and send the secondary without CASPA having mailed your application, or atleast I did. It may be a good idea to do that, because they already called me to clarify some prereqs. But I am surprised that CASPA hasn't mailed your application yet because mine was submitted in June and was already mailed. Are you still waiting for a letter? I'm from TN but went to undergrad in Virginia.

No I got all my letters in and I checked caspa this morning and it said that my application had been mailed so I will be sending off my secondary on tomorrow. I have no idea why it took caspa so long. At first they said they would mail off applications in early June and then they said late June, go figure. Well at least it's mailed off. I am ready to get the ball rolling.

I submitted my CASPA and it was processed and mailed in late July. I'm finishing my supplemental appl for UAB this week. I waited until the summer semester was complete so that I can include an updated transcript for the 21 hours I completed over the summer. I've been out of school for a few years (understatement) and I decided it would behoove me to reinforce my application with some current pre-req course work demonstrating that I am more than capable of the challenges of the program.

 

I'm from Texas, but I looked at all programs across the US (don't want to limit myself to one of the 7 programs in Texas), though I must admit my preference is going to be for something in a warmer climate! My teeth chatter in front of the refrigerator.

 

Good luck, all.

Hi everyone! Submitted my app back in july and the supplemental in august. To lynnrm there was "tons" of info on the program on the site, you just have to click through everything.. I was able to attend the open house and learn even more.. There should be a flyer with their stats and google them. They have an awesome 99% first time test taker average. They are one of only two surgical programs in the US as well. etc.etc. Outside recruiters come specifically in search for UAB SPA graduates too!! Top 25 ranking as well.
