I'm fairly certain the only requirement they have is a 3.0+ GPA, and even at that they are more like "we generally prefer that an applicant has this."
Most people would definitely deposit? Most of which income bracket? I'm not going to just throw a deposit at a school if I'm not sure that I can afford to attend there. I don't have endless cash for deposits. I'm looking to make one deposit. Two at the most, but hopefully just one.
I'd love to go to UNC. I hope that I will, but my other acceptances are attractive to me as well if UNC doesn't work out. Let's hope that it does.
To be fair, UNC is not a very expensive school. I think most people, even of a lower income bracket, would be very likely go to there if they really wanted to. Even if you don't mean it, your tone definitely implied that you expected a scholarship. I totally agree that it has to be financially feasible, but you are far from the only one in this waiting situation. We'd all like to only drop one deposit, but UNC doesn't seem to care about that. I think it's obnoxious that they don't give $$ info to people until well after they've been accepted (this is just ridiculous), but as we've already determined, UNC does not like to do anything in a straightforward way. I do wish you luck and I hope that you get what you're hoping for in order to bring you to UNC!
On a slightly related note, I'm almost decided on my back-up if UNC doesn't pan out. Guess I'll wait until 4/14 to submit a deposit
