Also, congratulations on your acceptance! Have you decided to attend?
I have decided to attend, I was debating between Duke and UNC, but UNC offered me a full-scholarship as a chancellors Scholar, and I just could not justify $150,000 at Duke compared to $0 at UNC. I also love the school and the people there, everyone has been extremely helpful and pleasant.
Good luck on your acceptance, I honestly believe it does take them longer because they thoroughly look at everyone’s application. They are also super busy and have a ton of apps.
They did not send out the invitations for the scholarship competition until 2 weeks before the event. And some people were out of state and it started on a Friday. To me that is a good example of how busy they are and that just because they have not gotten to you in a timely fashion does not mean they do not want you.
