Guys any international applicant applying in the EA round has scheduled his/her telephonic interview or interview via skype as of yet. As it seems one can schedule their interview after paying the application fees.

In case anyone has any questions about KF's early action binding/non-binding issue, I called their admissions office just now and asked a few questions. I wrote an email to my admissions consultant (she helped me with two other schools, not KF) recapping what KF's admissions office told me so that perhaps they could use that info to answer other clients' questions on the same issue. The meat of the email is below. Hope it helps you all out as well:

- I asked if KF EA is binding, and was told that it is NOT binding, but you just have to submit your deposit earlier than normal (so that kind of inherently/unofficially makes it binding depending on your other schools' decision dates). In my case, it wouldn't matter since [school x]/[school y] both release their decisions around the same time as KF.

- I asked if, while there is no legally binding aspect (think college early decision or Fuqua/Columbia), there is an ethical issue with applying EA to KF and then going elsewhere if you are accepted. This is where it gets interesting: she said no, there is no legal OR ethical implication/issue, but nevertheless if you are considering other schools along with KF then you should apply in the December round. Basically, don't apply EA to KF unless it's your 100%, no questions asked #1 choice. Seems pretty subjective and as if there's a bit of wiggle room, but I guess if someone is concerned with "doing the right thing" then they should not apply EA to KF unless they'd enroll upon acceptance without batting an eye.

- I asked if EA increases your chances of getting in vs. December round (I know they can't give a straight answer but I couldn't help myself from asking) and she said that she can't really answer that but also that it shouldn't have a significant effect.

- Lastly, for people (such as myself) who occasionally look to media outlets such as GMATClub.com or other forums for random advice or thoughts on applications: I asked about a story I read about someone getting into KF EA, then finding out that all his other applications were automatically withdrawn because KF's adcomm contacted the other schools. She laughed and said no way that's true, and that they do not contact other schools or force you to withdraw apps or anything else. She said nothing like that happens.


Lastly, and for what it's worth, I decided that I am most likely going to avoid any potential moral/ethical hangovers and just apply in the December round, even though my app is ready to go for EA...



Thanks, pretty comprehensive. I also mailed some questions on the similar lines and decided to move my app to the next round. Well when every B school places so much emphasis on ethics, why not lead by example !!

CheerS!

Anyone officially in for R1? Planning on R2?

FWIW, the thread last year seems to have been a bit more active than this year. Looks like it had ~2x the posts at this point last year.

If entrepreneurship is really (lets be frank here, people lie about it, for reasons....) your aim , and in BPO idustry, then UNC is not fit for you. Babson , UCLA , MIT, stanford , UCSD will be the programs for you.

Quick question about UNC's online application:

Is there any way to edit your resume after it has been uploaded? I haven't submitted the application yet, but want to make one change to the uploaded resume. I only see a button for uploading another document. Wouldn't want to have two different versions uploaded at the same time.

Any clues? Much appreciated.

Usually you can email the admissions office with your new resume and they'll update it in the system for you. Also, this is a good chance to showcase additional improvements in your profile between submission and decision times.

Anyone on here applying to the EMBA program at UNC? I'm applying to the evening EMBA program starting August 2012. I'd be interested in anyone's experiences going through the interview and thoughts on maximizing chances with experience years on the low side.

Yes, because R1 is their Early Action round.

Hi All - I'm just starting to evaluate UNC as a potential MBA program. I see that any applicant can self-schedule an interview with an admissions rep. The webpage also indicates that "When you are invited to interview, you will also be given the opportunity to select a class visit, lunch with current students and a tour of the business school."

I'm trying to understand how this works. Are the self-scheduled and invitation interviews two different things? If you aren't invited, can you schedule one anyway? It seems like this would be administratively burdensome for the school.

Thanks!

Guys,

The "Employment History" section says: Please list all previous full-time employment beginning with your most recent position.

I have been with the same company since I started working. So do I need to fill in the details for each role?

Thanks

Inside UNC Kenan Flagler's Admissions Office - What happens when you click that "submit" button?

UNC Kenan-Flagler's Director of MBA Admissions Sherry Wallace - I am someone who strongly believes in demystifying the application process for prospective candidates. There is no advantage in our selection process if applicants feel like they are in the dark. We want you to know how that work is put to use. We even did a video tour of the admissions office on YouTube. Applicants also seem to respect the admissions process more when they know how diverse the admissions committee is. We have representation from administration, finance, consulting, retail and more who are part of the review team.

Back to how the application process works. Once applicants submit their applications through our online system, we have a team of people whose job it is to let applicants know what we’ve received and what’s missing. At any point after the evaluation process begins applicants might get an invitation to interview. In general, we have a policy so not everyone is invited to interview. Also, some applicants might get invited very early, while other applicants will get invited very late and some won’t receive an invitation at all.... read more
