University of Alabama at Tuscaloosa!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • This has become our largest and most active forum because the physics GRE is just one aspect of getting accepted into a graduate physics program.
  • There are applications, personal statements, letters of recommendation, visiting schools, anxiety of waiting for acceptances, deciding between schools, finding out where others are going, etc.

I've got no qualms with the school or its physics program... but it's in Alabama! I could barely stand living in Florida because of how close it is to Alabama, and there you'll be, right in the epicenter of Alabamicity.

LIES!!! The best song ever was written about Wisconsin. (Well, ok, no one ever did write a song about Wisconson, but that's because it's spelled Wisconsin).

Lately Ive just been putting together and coding the help documentation. Pretty simple actually. I was worried at first that it was going to be insane but no it isnt. You could learn how to do it in like 50 minutes if anyone wanted too. Doesnt pay bad though but I only have a month left till I leave for Alabama. Sweet Home Alabama!!!

The help is important stuff. If someone comes to me with a dumb computer question, I'm always tempted to fire up the help and leave...

Is there Internet in Alabama?

Do physics graduate courses also teach the "intelligent design" alternative there?

Do they still stone people for shoplifting there?

Hey, it isn't that bad. In fact, theoretical particle physics (especially high energy) at Alabama is comparable to, if not better, than UVA, UNC and other similar places.

Eurgh, the heat and religious nutjobs! I couldn't stand it. Of course, I guess it is just a stereotype so I should quit talking :shock:

The heat actually isnt that bad and tuscaloosa is actually a pretty liberal place but once I leave the city limits its like I entered some sort of religious hell.

However on the way down here I stopped at a gas station in Northern Alabama and the person at the cash register had no shoes or socks on and it scared me. I thought omg TV is true. No Tuscaloosa and western Alabama is beautiful. Im still suprised how nice it is. The school is huge about 1200 acres and an interesting notes owns 25000 acres randomly scattered throughout Alabama due to the school being burnt down by the union soldier in 1864. Anyway I'm off to relax and sleep later.
