^^^Yeah my I was shocked when he told me he got letter from other schools. I applied EA to Duke, on the signature page it says they can give out my name to other schools.

I was thinking EA for UNC, but didn't want to sell my self too short and it came down to DukeEA and TuckEA....went with Duke cause of fit.

Just submitted 100% of the application tonight.

Congratulations to all of those with interview invites. If I can give one piece of advice........make the trip to Chapel Hill for the interview. If you are not 100% sold on Kenan-Flagler now, you will be after visiting.

Me in WL. I've one thing to mention. Though it might sound good don't loose your heart or something like that but if someone applied UNC, UVA, Ross etc and when you find you are not in UNC , the confidence level be lower for the other schools preparation. You need to re-plan your selection of schools. For me after this I probably not submit my apps in Ross R2



it is weird thing and definitely a loss in confidence... i didn't receive my interview invite from Georgetown and I had high hopes in getting an invite at least but it is what it is. I did contact the director and she said WL applicants get into same pool as next round folks so there will be no discrimination....which is a good thing i hope... But you should try Ross though.

Hello All,

I applied for the R3 (01/07) and got an interview invitation on 01/09. I called up the admissions to clarify some doubts and I also asked about who gets the interview invites. They told me that they go through applications which are in progress and filter out high potential candidates and invite them to interview so that the applicants get more time.

In my case the GMAT is only 650 and I have not posted my GPA since I was not awarded in the usual GPA scale. So I guess someone must have manually gone through the applications and then flagged me for interview. I am not sure if this is the case and what to make out of it. But anyways I think it is a good sign.

I am interviewing on campus on 01/28.


To add on to my previous post, I got this reply form a current student when asked about what to make out of an interview invite

"As far as interviews, if the admissions committee determines that they are interested in getting to know you better, they will send out an invite for an interview. Everyone who is accepted is interviewed, so it is certainly a good sign they have shown that initial interest!"

Dear all, can anyone let me know what the app. status reads before and after an interview?


Mine said the same thing before and after the interview:

Thank you for submitting your application. Your decision is not yet available.

Do you have anything different on your app (online)?

Well I hope my lack of memo is a good thing.... Seems very strange that only a few people would get dings today. Why release these decisions first and not just all at once. I am going to try and block out all things Chapel Hill until the 7th.


UNC does send out exceptionally good (admits with scholl) or bad results (ding, no offense to anyone) through out the week before result date. I dont think this should come as a surprise to anyone that we are seeing results through out the week. I am just hoping that results for everyone is good(including me).

I have already reached the stage of being clinically depressed and one bad news might push me over the edge to declare myself as completely "cuckoo".

all, let's get over the employ. stats and the rankings (first time I hear something like "top 16"!!!) and admit that UNC has a clear edge over Georgetown. If there is one thing that everyone should learn these forums and discussions, it's the fact that there is much into programs then their rankings.

Nevertheless, in terms of general rep. Georgetown might seem to be (and may be, indeed) a better school than UNC but Kenan-Flagler is really really better than McDonough by all means.
Now some will go ahead and say that "But, it depends on your profile and what you want to do with your degree" kind of stuff. Yet, I believe that if you do your homework (wrt recruiting etc.) Kenan-Flagler would give one notch above of everything that McDonough can give you.



Whos talking about rankings? We all know rankings arent the final say in any regards. Were talking about REAL statistics over the years.

So we should get over "employ. stats" and just look at forums. LOL

if you want to do federal consulting in DC and pick UNC over Gtown you are a certified moron.
If you want to work for Bank of America in Charlotte/ATL and pick Gtown you are a certified moron.

Your conclusion of UNC beating Gtown in everything is so simple and weak that anything you say from now on must be taken with a grain of salt.


Sound like you work for UNC's PR dept. haha


Both schools are OK, and yes UNC may be slightly better received (In general) by certain industries, you should dig deeper than forums and websites to find the best fit.....isn't that something that is preached on this site too?

UNC works best for me and my family, is there anything i can do now to push my application in front? any siggestions?

At this point in the admission cycle, I think you probably have a good idea of where you stand in terms of the spectrum of schools you applied to. So if you think you're close, you can try to send updates. I don't know if UNC welcomes updates from the WLed, being a lower ranked school I would assume they do, but reinforcing your acceptance of a potential offer along with spinning any new career developments in a positive light is probably the way to go.

Yep, I called. All scholarship dollars are out. Also said they are overextended and it isn't likely that more dollars will be given. Sad, I had high hopes that something would work out.


So even if people turn down scholarship offers, they won't offer them to the rest of us. Oh well. Good to know.


She said if enough free up that they might have some to give, though it would be a month or two. I can't wait that long as I have other acceptance deadlines.

Still think KFBS is a top-notch program with awesome faculty, curriculum, and resources. But I felt a better fit elsewhere and am declining my offer in advance of tomorrow's deposit deadline. Good luck WLers!
