+1 - they emailed within a day after being accepted abouot helping me get out to visit the school in January
I have been extremely impressed with their admissions staff. They seem to be writing the playbook on how to handle admissions. I think this is going to impact their yield. The experience is so different with other schools, they definitely stand out.
Definitely, Alabama has gone from hardly on my map to one of my top choices. I honestly would choose it over UGA or UNC (if I got in) as of today. They have been VERY accommodating, sent me a number of items, had the dean call me, and generally stayed in constant contact over the entire process. From speaking with Dean Randall (biased I know, but still....) I would call these long-standing rumors of extremely limited degree portability from Alabama patently false. Despite their seemingly poor reputation on TLS they have impressed me in every step of the way thus far.
EDIT: I'll be at ASW as well.
