UAB interview

  1. Hello, I will be interviewing at UAB (mobile, AL regional site) on March 12th, and I am getting pre-interview jitters. Has anyone else recently interviewed with UAB. I have heard that the interviews consist of mostly personal questions rather than clinical based questions. I would appreciate any advice. Thanks in advance!

    MrsSandman,

    I think you and I have discussed UAB in a PM, but let me tell you again....RELAX.
    You will do just fine as long as you know the answers to all the WHY questions. UAB was my second of three interviews and was the most relaxing one by far. They just want to get to know you and why you are there. Judging by my experience I would say that grades play a huge role in their decision because my grades were exceptional and everything else (GRE and experience) were just average. Good luck! You will be fine! Hopefully I will see you there in the fall!

    Just wanted to respond.......
    The interviews at the regional sites are "different" than at the central location e.g (Birmingham). If you are interviewing at Mobile, the interview with the faculty of UAB will be the same as the central location; BUT, the folks from Mobile handle the students quite differently than the faculty. I have friends in the Mobile component now so I would be prepared for clinical questions from your area of expertise. I didn't send this to make you nervous, I just wanted you to know that you will be handled in a different manner than folks that have interviewed at OTHER sites but for the same program.
