It is strongly recommended for in state applicants who were not accepted to request electronic feedback about how to strengthen their application beginning in May. To request email feedback, please email medschool@uab.edu. Requests for feedback must be received by August 1, 2017.

Due to limited resources, unfortunately, feedback is not available to out of state applicants.

 Updating Your Contact Information
All applicants must maintain updated contact information (address, phone, email) with AMCAS throughout the entire application process.  Your AMCAS contact information is our only source of contact information for you.  We do not maintain a separate database of contact information.


Any applicant who has been accepted but subsequently fails to enroll, or who has been refused admission but wishes to enter in a subsequent year, must re-apply for admission and must meet all requirements at the time of the new application. It is essential for individuals that receive feedback to address the feedback in their secondary application and future evaluations by the committee will be based on how effectively they address their feedback. The Admissions Committee expects all re-applicants to have improved their credentials significantly.

Reapplicant files are reviewed with all other applications for admission.
