Same here. Scholly at Wake makes them about the same price. I'm a little turned-off by Carolina just based on the fact that they're taking so long, though.
A lot of people have that problem with Carolina. I did last year. I ended up choosing WF based on a number of factors (and, like you, my scholarship made them almost the same price -- Carolina was a bit cheaper in the long run). Without a doubt, it's one of the best choices I ever made. Visit both schools, and you'll see a huge difference with the people and atmosphere. As cliche as it might sound, people will know you at WF. Professors make it a point to get to know the students. I have two professors from last semester whose classes I hardly ever spoke in, and both of them call me by name and speak to me each time I see them. UNC, on the other hand, seems to treat you like a (non-existant) number based on my interactions with people at the school.
It's really a matter of personal preference if they're the same price. If you like small, personal classes with great people, go to WF. If you like huge classes and having professors that couldn't pick you out of a lineup, go to UNC. (I vote WF
