    UAB is a school of excellent. The one thing you won't find here is a professor just giving you a grade. They have high expectations with little room for excuses.

    The University of Alabama has great programs, especially if you want to join the medical field, nursing is huge here! However, because of this much of the smaller departments get little funding and there's always construction going on to expand the school. The night life here is pretty extensive if you know where to go, and the Greek life is always up to something.

    UAB is an awesome school. However, be prepared to study and really learn a lot. Undergraduate research is a huge part of the average college experience here, not partying.

    Despite being in the center of Birmingham, UAB feels like its in its own little bubble. UAB is also currently undergoing a lot of renovation, with a new freshman dorm and student centering being built for incoming students of 2015-2016. Lastly, UAB is arguable the best medical school in the state of Alabama.
