Are you asking if anyone has had an interview? If so, yes.

I've never heard of anyone at KFBS getting in with less than one year of experience. There are some business schools that except people out of undergrad (Simon, Yale, some others...), but typically speaking, you need at least two years of work experience.

Hey folks, count me in for R2. I was just looking to schedule an interview/visit in January, but no visits are available on the website - does anyone think they just haven't posted them yet to encourage people to visit before the New Year, or are they completely booked? I guess we have until 1/26 to interview and I probably won't be able to make it on campus until January.

supposedly UNC is binding but i called and the guy said it wasn't but i didnt want to take any chances so requested R2. Binding means you should cancel other school applications at time of acceptance by this school unless something extreme comes up... UNC website doesn't explicitly say it so there's some ambiguity here but better safe than sorry./...

From the Kenan-Flagler application:

Early Action

Our first cycle, October 22, 2010, is the Early Action deadline. Early Action is an option for applicants who know for certain that they will attend UNC Kenan-Flagler if admitted. Early Action provides applicants with the certainty of learning their decision by December 13, 2010. Admitted applicants in the Early Action cycle will be required to submit a $2,500 non-refundable enrollment deposit by January 3, 2011, in order to secure a space in the class. You should not apply for Early Action if you are not prepared to commit immediately to attending UNC.


I am sure that the reason why there is "ambiguity" when you call to ask if it is binding stems from the fact that Kenan-Flagler should be your #1 choice if you're applying Early Action. As I've said in an earlier post, Columbia, Duke, and a few other schools also have "binding" early rounds, and they follow the same assumption that you're applying with that school as your top choice. I think the only school with an early round that explicitly states that it's okay to weigh your options is Tuck.

thing is those schools explicitly says you need to cancel other apps while this doesn't. The only "binding" i see is the 2500 fee before the date.

UNC MBA Early Action is not binding. Even the admissions people say it's not! You must pay a $2,500 non-refundable deposit by Jan 3, 2011. However, if you don't pay the deposit, you're not contractually bound to go there. Furthermore, if you do pay the deposit, you still are not contractually bound to go there -- you just will not be able to get a refund.

This is different to, for example, Duke MBA, where you are required to immediately withdraw all other MBA applications upon admittance to Early Action.
