same here. :( i dunno at this point i really have a strong gut feeling its waitlist (that's all that's been coming in my mailbox lately, since it's late in the cycle) and i've pretty much given up caring. i have decent offers, but if UNC accepted me i'd seriously consider it

I applied mid-February, got the "application complete" email on February 24th, acceptance letter on March 5th, no scholarship information.

I sent out 1 application... UNC. I'm happy I got in!

FunkyJD, I wish we could be real life friends so that I could bask in your positive glow all day. Especially after my brutal UNC waitlist.

So are we thinking that the next round may come not in a couple days, but the next Friday? I bet there will be a lot of movement at most schools during the next couple of weeks. Fun times.

lml, I am feeling your pain. I was talking to a neighbor who is a UNC 3L (admitted off the WL) and he was telling me about a classmate of his who was literally admitted to UNC on his first day of classes in Indiana. Hopped a plane the next day. ouch.

My stats:
    Above median GPA (would have been higher, but the first year of college classes in high school hurt me)
    Below median LSAT (provided explanation)
    NC Resident
    URM (I think I would have gotten in even if this wasn't the case.)
    Ex-Military
    Worked full-time during my UG
    B.S. in Business Administration
    3 LORs (1 from law professor, 1 from criminology professor, 1 from my manager)
    Submitted required and optional personal statements.

I got in and will be there for the ASD on Friday, March 19th.

This is awesome.

But...above median GPA + URM = can't fail.

Plus ex-military. UNC LOVES service men and women.

EDIT: BTW I think the love of service men and women is great and well-deserved. I can never get upset when I see someone who served get into a school. Congrats jcojas!

Thanks for the congrats.

I think one of the main things to take from this is to be sure to include EVERYTHING that you can to make their decision easier, in your favor. I probably could have cut corners and omitted the explanation for why I felt my LSAT score wasn't indicative of what I'm capable of, omitted the optional PS, omitted the resume (I don't remember if it's required or not), or only submitted 2 LORs. I didn't want to get in because of URM or GPA; I wanted them to have no doubt that I wanted it and I was a good fit for the school.

Now I have to prove to them that they made the right decision. Good luck to everyone still awaiting a response.

Thanks, man. I'm just trying to stay in a positive frame of mind. I've done all of the feeling bad that I plan to feel over this application process. Time to try something else.

Along those lines, I say Go Carolina, nice win over W&M last night. NIT < NCAA Tournament, but keep building for next year.

Your story is awsome. I am a prior Marine myself and I have similar numbers to you. Below 25 percentile LSAT and middle percentile GPA. I combined all of my ps's into one 5 page ps that addressed all of the issues even why my LSAT score was subpar. Any how, congrats on your acceptance and I hope I get the same results.

Waitlisted at Emory today, but on the upside I avoided the waitlist/ding from UNC for another 24 hours.

Kind of sick and pathetic I consider that an upside to my day...

I'll be there. Sounds like it's an all day affair. I called this morning and they said to be there before 9 and to expect to be there until about 3:30.

Is it too early to ask if there was any movement from Carolina this week? Do they usually send acceptances later in the day? Anyhoo I avoided the waitlist letter today if they sent any.

From what I have seen, acceptance emails have been sent out relatively late, like between 6 and 9 PM Eastern.
