    I think these are both great schools, but they are great in very different ways. Which would you choose to attend if you had the option and why?

    If I were you I would go to UAB, so that other people on the WF waitlist can get in.

    Actually they are both fine schools. I think it comes down to location. The country of North Carolina or the city of Birmingham.

    Good luck it is a great situation to be in.

    Canrenone brings up some excellent points. Def UAB would be a better option as that would allow for more waitlist movement at Wake. :)

    UAB also knocked off KY, so that's a plus :)

    wake has a better reputation for undergrad; so it may have a more academic culture than uab overall...uab doesn't have a meal plan or real dining hall that i know of; so you would have to cook every night or go eat out everynight...but yeah UAB did beat UK, so i guess you should go there...
