If I do get in I'll wear only my unc snuggie for month. I think the admissions committee should take my dedication into account.

what kind of questions did they ask you that weren't already covered in the documentation you submitted?


honestly, I don't remember specifics. It has been 14 years. The general idea is pretty simple though: in state tuition is heavily subsidized by NC taxpayers and UNC has a cap on the number of OS students it can take. The institution has an obligation to the legislature and to NC taxpayers to try to make sure that the people paying the subsidized rate are NC residents already or, if they are seeking residency, that they are likely to remain in the state. So, the board is essentially trying to glean how likely it is that you will stay in NC after school. If you are just going to eat and run, they aren't interested in picking up the tab.


thanks

It isn't just UNC, and it isn't just law schools. My undergrad institution was the same way. It's nearly impossible to do this without spending some time living in the state without being a student. I had a roommate in UG who moved up from Miami to go to my school, and he ended up having to take quite a bit of time off because he couldn't get in state tuition while being a student there.

I'm strongly debating composing an emo-style love song about my longing for a decision from UNC. The longer this takes, the more I doubt the decision will be favorable.

Don't lose hope. I doubt they have sent out a majority of their acceptances at this point.

Remember that the admission deadline was actually march 1 and that they didn't start reviewing most of them until mid-january. Chin up everyone, and hope for the best.

So true. Although rumor was that they were hoping to most acceptances done by March 1, they were ahead of schedule, etc. I've definitely been psyching myself out.

Gah, don't do this to me! I need this thread to stay on the back page unless I have something in my inbox. I felt complete panic when I saw this thread on the new posts page. Can it just be May already? With that said, +1 :D

Truth. I have a feeling some acceptances will be going out this week, especially if they were serious about that March 1st thing.

Yes, I am hoping they send out another round before they dig into the scholarship notifications. (no offense to hopeful scholars!)

Who knows? I'm pretty sure they said all decisions would go out via snail mail, but they've been doing most acceptances by e-mail and others by phone. As long as they accept me, I don't care how they decide to do it :)

Hey, not to be a skeptic or "debbie downer" but I was wondering what the source for this March 1 rumor was?

UNC, even as an OOS, is becoming my number 1 choice right now which has caused me to be on edge for the past few weeks. If this is just something that has taken on an internet "truthiness" to it I would want to know for my sanity.

Thanks!

Yeah me too. I pretty much hold my breath whenever my phone rings, I check e-mail, or the mail arrives. It would be nice to narrow it down.

This is what Dean States stated at an open house event last month. He promised May 1st, but said that his office is trying very hard to get an answer out by March 1st.
