Wake & UNC

Postby MandyNC » Thu Jan 21, 2010 11:25 am

is it between Wake and UNC for some of you? And what's your thinking? Just curious, as it had always been 100% UNC in my mind but I'm liking what I'm reading about Wake.

Any chance of seeing $$ with a 3.69/163?

Thanks, everyone!

P.S: The drive from Raleight to Winston Salem is really not bad. I mean, it's not close but it's just a very easy, traffic-free drive. So if the rental car is cheap, go for it.

Edit: Meant to put this in the WF acceptance thread. Sorry, people.

Count me in. I'm set on UNC, but Wake offered me $84,000. I'm waiting to hear back from UNC in regards to $$ before I make any meaningful comparisons.

If no money from UNC, definitely attending Wake.

My #'s: 165/3.9*

You should have a decent chance at scholarship money.
I'm a UGA undergrad, 3.6/165 (when I first decided to apply 160) and one of the reasons I applied to Wake was their generosity with scholarship money.

Take a look at the law school data; I'm too lazy to do it now but even the median grant beats the highest at other schools.

I got 67500 with those numbers for a reference point.

As someone who has lived in both Winston-Salem and Chapel Hill, has North Carolina residency, and spent a good deal of time at both universities, I'd have to choose UNC. I've been very impressed with everything Wake has done since I was admitted--the small things on the personal level. The smaller section sizes help too. However, UNC is hard to turn down.
