Got my mail three hours ago... nothing. Nothing in the email. Tomorrow will be an interesting day.

Do they accept by mail, or by email?

I've only heard of acceptances through email thus far...but if I'm wrong, someone correct me.

I just got an email from Alabama saying they reviewed my file (oops, forgot I applied there!) and would get back to me by the end of May... sad that it takes ALABAMA to make UNC look good.

I now officially feel like I'm the last person waiting on a response! Really hoping my $70 and hours working on the extra essays weren't for nothing!

I was waitlisted a couple of days ago via e-mail, but I have to send in a request to join the waitlist via snail mail...haven't received the packet yet though.

Ugh, that makes me feel a little better. I had to put in a deposit at another school a while ago. When I called the admissions office about this problem, they were really rude to me. They told me to just put it down and then if I get in I can just put in another one. As if I have deposit money to just throw around willy-nilly. Here's to hoping for good news tomorrow...

So far it seems like they've like waitlisted almost every OOSer I've seen...I wonder who got in :?

Carolina's waitlist is used to fill demographics. Your race, age and residency become almost as important as your numbers.

Or so says the UNC adcomm.

Haha that can't be true, otherwise why would they put a 24 year old, white (jewish) male (me) on the waitlist (we're like the most over populated law school demographic I believe)?

Still waiting here too. Applied mid October. Went complete mid December cause they overlooked my mailed in stuff...said they never received it even though it was mailed with my check which they cashed in late October.

I'm on-state, 164/3.7. Guess tomorrow is the (supposed) big day. But since I am planning to attend Wake Forest so it doesn't really matter, but it is the principle of things. It is ridiculous having to wait this long.

I think lml meant that's the criteria they use for pulling people OFF the waitlist...as for putting you on it, since you're obviously not going to fill any demographics...maybe they want as many people as possible on the waitlist just in case?

Right but why would they put people on "a demographic based waitlist" that they know they aren't going to pull off for demographic reasons? I think they say that it's unranked/"based on demographic filling" so people will stay on the waitlist (and they have the backup if they -really- need it), but most likely it is actually ranked (and by GPA/LSAT).
