Hey mates,
I got confused with the essay question #4.
Kenan-Flager has five core values: excellence, leadership, integrity, community and teamwork. If you could add one value what would it be and why? Be sure to explain how you have lived this value.


Does it ask what I could add as the number 6? Or, does it ask which one of the five core values I could INCREASE the value?

Thank you.

@yuskay,

Adcom wants us to tell another core value that we wish to add to the list (6th one). Adcom made it clear in one of the online chats, transcript of which is available on their web.

Wow! Are you sure they plan to interview only half the applicants? In the past they used to inverview 90%. On the other hand, they have about 8 staff members interviewing people, so from that standpoint it does make sense to interview only half of the people.
What bothers me is my application status: inder a review. I interviewed last week on campus and I gave them a transcript that never made it to my file, so she did tell me that is everything. Ten days latter, and my application is still not "done". I don't understand. I don't want to be a pest, so I will wait to bug them about this after holidays.

I'm a reapplicant to KFBS and a little confused about how to approach my essays. Since the application requires that reapplicants denied admission last year re-submit all essays I'm wondering if I should write totally new essays or work on what I submitted last year. Any ideas on how other reapplicants approached their application will be much appreciated.

I got an interview invite for the Dec 4 deadline if someone wants to update the roll call page. It's not scheduled until Jan 19, so I guess I have some time to prep. I haven't visited campus before so I'm going to do the class visit, student lunch and tour as well while I'm down there.

I totally agree. Keep in mind that you are re-presenting yourself to the admissions committee. You've grown personally and professionally since when you first applied. Your growth should be reflected not only in your resume and interview but also in your essays by your clarity, tone and ancedotes.

Did anyone receive the admit package? I still did not get it even though I stay next to NC.

I did receive an email asking for feedback on the package.

"Under review" status was due to unofficial GMAT scores, because the official score was sent after Dec 4th deadline. An email to the admission office and they said that they will use my unofficial score, which in turn changed the status of my application to "things missing" but it doesn't say what is missing. Grrrr.

I called the adcom office today to ask what is going on. I talked to the records office and he said that they do not have official transcript from a foreign university that I attened long time ago and never graduated. He said that my application is fine, it is ready to be reviewed by adcom. If I am admitted, then I will need to produce an official transcript (or not).

He also said that adcom is not really reviewing R1 application yet! They may start doing that next week or so That's surprising. That doesn't leave them a lot of time to read all essays, connect the dots, make admission decisions and notify applicants by Feb 8th. Although, adcom admitted 5% drop in applications this season during one of their chats in December.

The wait begins....

In response to an earlier question posted in this thread about interview invites:

I spoke to the admissions office today, and they said that invites will be released all the way up until the decisions deadline, Feb. 8. While this makes absolutely no sense, as it will give them no time to evaluate the interview, it gives the rest of us who haven't received invites some hope.

I'm submitting UNC tonight or tom. for round 3. Can I ask you all how much detail you went into on the Employment History and Other form? Clearly I will go into detail on my work experience, but how much do I need to write about working as a camp counselor 12 years ago?

Thanks,

D
