There's not many of us at the moment, but here's a thread for those of us who have been accepted to UAMS! It's my state school and the cheapest so I'm keeping it open as a pretty viable option.
I understand that there are dorms for med students across the street from UAMS. Are they comfortable? Can you cook in these places or are you stuck with dorm food? What's the price?
How far would you have to drive from UAMS to get a decent one room apartment? How much would the rent be in that relatively close and comfortable apartment?
If they want to commute daily how difficult is it for medical students to get a parking space?
Also, parking is bad. I think students have to park in a parking lot near war memorial stadium and can either walk or take a bus to the school.
I received my acceptance packet in the mail today(I live a little over an hour away from Little Rock). Without a doubt, this is the happiest day of my life! I'm looking forward to seeing everyone in August, and I wish all of those who are out there waiting the very best of luck. Also, congratulations to the other new members of the UAMS COM Class of 2013.
Hey, I'm a second year at UAMS and if you all have any questions about the School, med school in general, or whatever, pm me.
Also, did any of you all that got in this week get the background check email on thursday morning?
I don't believe I got a letter about this in my packet. Where could I go for more information on it? Do you know if I will be able to do say just the last week of the program? (I work and won't be able to quit until the last of July, perhaps a bit earlier if I accrue some vacation time)
I would call the Admissions office and ask to speak with Linda DuPuy- she will know for sure. I suspect that you'll need to submit it formally in writing.
You will need to submit something in writing. But like the above poster said, speak to ms Dupuy first.
And please do it as soon as posible so they can start making arrangments to fill the spot.
Alright, places to avoid in the Little Rock area are: Jacksonville, Asher, downtown Little Rock...where else? I've been accepted at UAMS and will probably matriculate this fall. How does everyone like the Little Rock area? I've lived in Mobile Alabama and Biloxi MS but nowhere in AR have I ever set foot.
