Splitter Chances at UNC

Postby jsvaughn » Tue Sep 13, 2011 10:57 am

Wondering if yall could chance me at UNC-Chapel Hill.


4 Immediate relatives that graduated from UNC Law School
3 years coaching experience at a local high school, 4 state championships, 2 finishes in the top 10 at nationals
2 internships at different DA offices in the state

The predictor has me as an auto-ding
Lawschoolnumbers doesn't really have anyone close to my numbers

Do I have any chance at all?

Doesn't look good, as people with better numbers and NC residency couldn't break through. Seems as if UNC isn't too interested in admitting sub 3.0 white people. Still worth an app though given the LSAT, in-state status, and legacy potential.

Ooh boy, this is an interesting one. The numbers say no, as UNC looks to have a pretty hard GPA floor at 3.0. However, I'm bullish on your chances. It looks like they do a lot of waitlisting for people with your numbers and it's a pretty small sample size. From what I understand, UNC favors in-state applicants more than other state schools, so I would think that your ties to the school would mean a lot more at UNC than at other schools. It doesn't look like they have an ED option though.(?)

It looks like you'll probably get initially waitlisted. I think if you write a Why UNC and have a good LOCI ready with a strong LOR to accompany it, you have a shot. It's hard to say what those other applicants did or didn't do, so its hard to say what your chances are. I think it's worth a shot though!

Also, I assume you want to work in NC? If UNC won't bite, I would shoot for Georgia as they don't seem to have much of a GPA floor. Good luck!

Someone kick the record player, it's skipping.

At least areyouinsane's rants about doc review were entertaining.

The 3.0 floor is solid as a rock even for in state applicants, and UNC is loathe to give waivers.

Not saying don't apply, but I wouldn't scout out apartments in Chapel Hill. Realistically, Wake Forest is your best bet if you want to stay in NC, and at least based on my experience, they might make you a scholarship offer that brings their tuition below UNC sticker at your numbers.
