Yes. Although my CAT's are higher than my 1st GMAT attempt, they are not as high as I need them to be.

Hi,

I am re-applicant. Any idea how different is a re-applicant application from a new application for UNC?

Any current student here from UNC Kenan Flagler? I have few questions that I would like an answer to from current student or alumni.

Attended the MBA tour in New Delhi on September 27th and UNC was present.
Planning for R1 deadline.
DO we need to send any documents(transcripts) by snail mail apart from the completed online application?

Hi guys,

Is UNC early deadline binding? I am keen on the school, however, quite sure that I wont be able to attend it without any scholarships.

So, what should i be doing?

Thanks!

Thanks threestripes, that was helpful.

Where did you see the 2nd part of that essay topic? Am I taking retard pills and missing something blatantly obvious? That's kind of peculiar that they would be missing that on their application tool...


Don't worry. You're not the only one. I initially wrote Essay 1 with only the first part in mind. And then when I looked for tips online, all the websites with the analyses had the second part. After seeing that, I checked GMAT Club and saw that the Essay 1 questions, which are listed above, also include the second part. The KFBS website should have it somewhere too, but my browser is messing with me right now so I can't access the website.

Hi Guys I am applying to KF on its early application deadline.

I am facing a few problems with the same

1) While writing down my GMAT AWA scores as part of the application while i was writing down 5.5 the website is recording as 6. What to do? Also while writing down about my languages other than English while i submitted Bengali to be one of them website is not recording it.

I have applied for UNC MBA starting Fall 2012. Are the interview dates to be selected by the applicants only? Being an
international candidate i can only do a phone or webcam interview?

Cheers

I have been having some problems with the application as well. I'd recommend calling their admissions office and ask for technical assistance on the application. They should be able to help you.

I guess there is no hard fact I can point to. It's just my feeling based on prior discussions about KF in particular and EA round discussion on this forum in general. If you search around you'll see that people seem to consider the first two rounds to be (almost equally) easier than the later rounds. There very well may be a difference, but I really don't think it's substantial personally. If you have above a 700 GMAT and you're applying to Darden and Tuck, you probably don't need the mild (if any) advantage EA provides IMO.

I am leaning toward switching my app to Round 2 (or whatever you call the one after the EA round). For what it's worth, my admissions consultant advised that I do that as well...

FWIW, I agree with wonderbread1. I think applying in R2 won't affect your chance of getting in all that much compared to applying in R1/EA.

What's your consultant's reasoning, btw?

Does anyone have any insight regarding KF's early action? It's a little ambiguous as to whether it's binding. Their website states:

"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 12, 2011. Admitted applicants in the Early Action cycle will be required to submit a $2,500 non-refundable enrollment deposit by January 9, 2012, 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."

However, I can't find anywhere if it's binding. I've seen another thread that touched on this, but there was a lot of hearsay and nothing too definitive. Someone had a story of a friend's other apps being automatically withdrawn when he was accepted to KF because KF informed his other schools of his EA acceptance. It reads as if you can just not submit your deposit (thereby giving up your spot, so you aren't really stealing anyone's spot), but I certainly don't want to jeopardize my other apps if this EA option is binding.

The main reason I'm asking is because my app is ready to submit, and I'd prefer to get it in as early as possible since it's done, but I just don't want miss the fine print or anything. More importantly, I don't want to do anything unethical, 'cause that's pretty lame.

Thoughts, anyone? Would love some clarity on this.

Thanks a lot.


To me it looks like that, no, you're not fully required to go and, no, it's not legally/officially binding. Do they talk to other programs? Maybe (in previous threads it appears that way), and you might be taking a chance with things. Regarding ethics, it's very clear you're making a verbal/unofficial commitment that you'll go if admitted and are prepared to commit immediately. You're making (IMO of course) a verbal/unofficial commitment and you shouldn't take that lightly. FWIW, the next round isn't any more competitive really and your chances of getting money is likely higher. That's why I chose it :-).
