    For those that are accepted do you know when the scholarship application opens?

    I didn’t even know there was a scholarship application - I guess I assumed merit-based award consideration was automatic.

    If you haven't received an email saying that you are on the third-tier wait list or that you've been rejected, then my understanding is that you are still under consideration. I think they said on their twitter page that all interviewees from October have been reviewed, so you might be heading for the alternate list. They typically won't build and release the wait list until the Spring. In previous cycles, if you're put on the first tier list, then you have a pretty good chance of being admitted. If you are put on the second tier, then you have about a 50/50 chance of getting in. I wouldn't lose hope just yet.

    OOS. Applied in early September. No word yet. Is this a silent rejection?

    They don't silently reject, according to the second to last tweet on UAB's page! So .... no!

    I have seen the link on the recently admitted website for an online application, but I don't believe credentials will work just yet.

    Hey ya'll...have there been any other Post-II rejections?

    Just got hit with one this evening...( LM 73, IS, URM)

    I know no spot is guaranteed, but it just hurts in a special sort of way when it's your state school! MMI even seemed OK...here's hoping there's nothing spontaneously wrong with my app.:xf:

    Best of luck to everyone else with the rest of the cycle!

    OH wow, a rejection with LM 73 and IS that's rough.
    I have no luck then as an OOS

    I hope you have better luck with other schools.

    I'm sure you'll be fine! Thank you though and all the luck to you as well. I'd rather whatever spot I could have had go to someone who would love to be in Alabama for the next 4 years...maybe they could tell that that just wasn't quite me.

    Yes, business casual, but of course it is perfectly fine if you want to dress in suit/tie. :)

    not true, the application opens mid-February, you won't hear back until months later. if you don't apply, you're not just automatically under consideration - current student on scholarship

    Do you know if they'll send out information about how to apply/when, etc.? Or is that something we have to seek out on our own?
