PurplePirate wrote:ASD was enjoyable. I've already attended two or three of them, so by now they all feel the same. What was different though is that I truly felt like I connected with other students. I met and hung out with four other students for much of the day, and by the end we were all pretty much set on attending in the fall.

What I will say is that almost everyone I talked to expressed some type of frustration with the admissions process. Though no one really complained too much about it (except once when someone expressed those feelings during the student panel... it was super awkward). I was told that UNC is so "slow" with their process because they truly take a holistic approach to applications. I tend to believe that.

I'm excited to attend in the fall. Good luck to all of you still awaiting a decision.


I'm glad you liked it!! I'm gonna be honest, I was excited about ASD. I wanted to know which ones were TLS people so I could wave at them frantically, but I restrained myself because I didn't want to scare anyone away from attending. I was part of a large group of current students who stood at the end of the buffet table and just stared at it and talked about ways we could make ourselves look like admitted students for free food. I remember they had some really good BBQ last year when I went.

I'm really hoping I'm going to get to be a Dean's Fellow next year, which means I'll be hanging out with you guys at orientation and then having meetings with you and your small section throughout the year to pass all my invaluable wisdom about outlining, exams, what classes to register for for 2L, etc.

Sometime either late last night or anytime this morning, my application went under review, so I guess this means there are people working over the weekend.

Good luck to everyone!

I'm beginning to think the April 1st deadline was the ultimate April Fool's prank. Has anyone heard anything? Anyone?

My status checker still says application complete 1/30. That's kind of BS if I don't even get a review date before this April 1 deadline... Unless they just don't update review dates when they look at files. Idk. Either way they could've done something by now.

My application changed to "complete, under review" on Thursday but not a peep since then. I emailed them a while back and was told that everyone will have a decision by April 1st. Guess not.

I was gone to UT-Knoxville for an Admitted Students Day over the weekend, so I just looked at my Status Checker this morning. It says "Application Complete, Under Review," and all the text at the top of the page is now missing (the part that said 1st round acceptances by April 1, we're diligently reviewing your app, don't call us we'll call you, etc.).

I did not get an email saying I was accepted or waitlisted or dinged or anything. Maybe it'll come today (if the Dean is back from his trip to Oregon???). Maybe.



ETA - I just looked again and the "current status date" didn't change. It's still at 1/23 just like it's always been. If progress was made on my application and it truly went "under review," then wouldn't the status date have been updated? This is cruel and unusual punishment. I think I'm developing a psychosis! :lol:

It's strange. Mine still says application complete and still stuck on 11/29, and the part that says April 1st deadline for acceptance is still above there. I am wondering if mine is completely forgotten by them.

I assume that if we are still stuck at complete by this time that we are waitlisted or denied. Am i right?

i wonder if it would be bad to call and ask if these are the last of the admits or if there is still a small meager hope for my application

Not bad at all. Report what you find out!

You've got nothing to lose, right? If you're in, I don't think they'd yank your acceptance just because you called. If you're not in, what more can they do to you? It would save you the headache/heartache of the continued silence you've experienced up to this point.

OK, I just got off the phone with admissions and there is hope yet!! The lady I spoke with said that the decisions have been delayed past the April 1st deadline (as we already knew) and that not all decisions have been sent out. She said there were still going to be some admit decisions coming, along with a lot of waitlists and denials. FINGERS CROSSED!!!!

Those who got the acceptance email today, when's your seat deposit due? Mine says "August 24, 2011" :lol: Somehow, I don't think that's right. Hahaha.

Admit email a couple week ago stated:

"Note that you will be classified as a resident for tuition purposes for the 2012-2013 school year. You will receive an admission letter in the mail shortly with additional information on how to submit your seat deposit. To reserve your place in our Fall 2012 entering class, you must submit a nonrefundable first deposit of $250.00 before April 13, 2012 and a second nonrefundable deposit of $100.00 by June 11, 2012. You can pay the deposit on the Admitted Student website or by mailing a check to the Office of Admissions."

Congrats to the admits.

Hmmm...the amount of the seat deposit in my email is $350.00. So, it looks like they're combining the first and second deposit. Hopefully my "official" acceptance letter will correct the due date for the deposit. Thanks for the info.

Well I've officially given up. Applied in October and complete since 11/3 and still no word. Just sent out my job applications this morning. I can't wait on UNC any longer and this lack of response has become demoralizing. When I receive my inevitable waitlist, I'll just withdraw as I can't possibly drag this out any more. UNC might as well ding me and save both of us the trouble. Good luck to those still waiting and congrats to those who got in.
