    Got home late tonight and checked my mail and just about had a heart attack when I saw a letter from UABSOM. I appreciated the letter from the Dean but lord it had my feels all messed up for a moment lol.

    Damn I need an acceptance from here. I loved the school and even liked everyone I interviewed with. Ugh January 10th you are toooo far away.

    Ugh 12 days until we hear anything again. Looked at the FB group and there is 95 members. It’s been constantly going up since I’ve been watching it. Theoretically if that number is accurate we still have around 90 ish acceptance to go out. Probably less bc people turn off or get rid of their FB during the cycle.


    Good vibes to all you post and pre interviewers. Keep your heads up and let’s hope we hear good news soon!

    Thank you! I needed this; I interviewed on the first day of interviews and still have yet to hear anything. I absolutely LOVED UAB so some good news would be amazing.

    in the group last year they also added student leaders from the other classes, so there may still be more than 90!

    Rejected pre-II LOL. Not surprised though, I'm technically OOS even though UA is my soon to be alma mater. Congratulations to all who got acceptances and interviews! Seems like a great program.

    I hope you’re right. That would probably give us at least 100 spots since some of those will probably go to south or somewhere else.

    yeah if you look at last year's group, I believe they had 256 members, but the class size is only 186.

    Congratulations ! Wish I could say the same. I received a weird email about them not accepting ppl from the 3rd tier waitlists. I didn’t think they waitlisted anyone until April.

    I remember them saying they let people know early on if they are 3rd tier. but the 1st and 2nd tiers don't know until April.

    Ah that’s probably it. I received a clarification email from Dr. Grabowski.

    Either way it stinks that I was put in 3rd tier. I really thought my interview went well. Guess if I am accepted at ACOM after my interview I’ll be doing med school alone. My wife already told me she would not be moving to Dothan LoL.

    Haven’t ruled out South but since I haven’t heard anything by this point. I’ll expect a rejection letter by the end of the month.


    I’m super happy for you alice_!!! Congratulations future doctor

    Yeah, I’m regretting not trying for the primary care track. It was mainly because I knew my family wouldn’t move with me and driving two hours a day round trip from our house didn’t sound like ideal. Now it’s not seeming so like a big deal from the 3rd tier lol.
