I really want a T-shirt! Did you get it with the admissions package? I got my package yesterday in a UPS box and it was pretty big, so just KNEW there was a tshirt... Wrong :(

Did yours come after? lol *Yes, things that matter to me when I get into Bama*



I figured I missed out on the free t-shirt period. I bought my own yesterday. Roll Tide. 8)

I submitted around 1/25 and was UR on 2/05, and got a status update on 2/11, still just Under Review. They called me just to chat on 2/11 but I was at my nannying job and couldn't talk for very long.


I am basically this offset by one week lol. Oh and ... Minus the nannying lol unless you consider taking classes with kids all 5-7 years younger than me lol



Lol I don't know if I should call back. It was the basic, "We're here to be a resource for you, is this a good time?" *Holding a baby and trying to make mac and cheese with one hand and still holding the phone* "Not really but thanks so much for calling!" Them-"Laugh, well feel free to call back with any questions, we're here to help you." *Hang up, pray that being scattered won't affect my app and that the resource phone call isn't a sly way to get a mini-interview to make sure that looking good on paper hasn't stopped you from developing the social skills needed to not sound like a crazy person on the phone.*

Anyway, you were admitted right? When did you get your decision/how long after UR2?


no sorry i was wondering the same thing you were asking since i am waiting as you are only a little bit later than you with the application date.

Today got info on setting up a myBama e-mail, but no other news. Not sure if that is a good, bad or neutral sign. Have others had this happen?

Go for it. The admissions team is super nice. Even if that's normal at this point, they'll seem happy to hear from you.

I just missed a call from Bama. Ms. Griffith left a really pleasant voicemail, telling me that she was "pleased to receive my application and offering to answer any Qs/provide any more information about...so please give me a call at ___." Is this standard? Or is that the voicemail that's often left re: impending acceptances, etc.?

That one is pretty generic for applicants. The "Decision" one normally comes from Becca. I don't think she'll leave a message either.

From what I've heard that is pretty standard. Bama's admissions department is about as nice and helpful as can be.

Thanks doubledawg and chargers -- I figured, but it was worth the ask. +10 points to Bama for the Southern charm.

I applied via the Honors College track (I'm an undergrad at UA), but yes, acceptances are from Becca. She left me a message just saying who she was, and asking me to call her back before telling me about my acceptance. If you get something like that from her, I'd imagine it means you're accepted.

I am a regular applicant - received a voicemail asking for a return call and then was accepted. (And it was pretty awesome :lol: may have started hyperventilating a bit when I got the voicemail.) Other than that call I heard from other people in the admissions office for all other phone calls.

Haha, I'm in the same boat! Was wondering if anyone possibly had any idea as to when one who is on the PFCD list might expect a decision? Is that the waitlist or something else? I emailed Admissions and they were kind of vague. Didn't really elaborate on the matter too much.

Looking at last year's thread, I would say late April-late May.

I missed a call from Becca Tuesday. Her voicemail sounded very cheery, and briefly touched on her wanting to be a resource for me as I go through the application and admissions process, and law school. I called her back, she was busy. I left a message yesterday, no reply. I emailed her this morning. Thoughts?

Did you have actual questions, or were you just saying you got her message? Because if it's the latter, you should probably leave her alone. :lol:

I agree. If it was your acceptance, she wouldnt have said "Let me be a resource to you." She wouldve just asked you to call her back. If you dont have specific questions, I think your email letting her know you received the voicemail is probably sufficient.

PFCD'd yesterday.

Edit: Withdrew today. Even if I were accepted, I'd need a full-ride to consider going there. Good luck to the rest of ya'll!
