Congrats. You should visit the school. I have met with some of the professors and students. The finance department in particular seems young, rapidly expanding, but professors from some well known programs; their department is probably in the tier right below a ucla, duke, umich finance program. They seem to take a pretty active role in the MBA program. I think this is pretty unique vs the more established finance schools. The capital market lab is pretty neat. From what i heard they have some loose affiliation with the unc endowment... a plus for summer internships, etc. A student I spoke with had mentioned that pimco does interview at UNC.

Have you decided to attend?


Cool, thanks for the info. UNC is the only school I've heard back from. My other applications were for Jan. deadlines, so if I get accepted anywhere else I plan to visit each before making a decision. Did you decide between UNC and Duke?

For the international admits, do you know if the no co-signer loan will push through? Will it include living expenses as well? If it doesn't push through, what other funding alternatives do we have?

Anyone attending ASW? I'm thinking of attending to brush up on some subjects and to get settled early. The deposit is due ASAP though (before other decisions go out).

Hi Sjed,
What do you mean about the site mentioning the no co-signer loan. So they won't have it this year? Where in the site did you see this?

Yeah, the enrollment deposit is due Apr 23 but I read in the admit portal site that the ASW deposit is due Feb 1 onwards (until capacity is filled). I have to check which part of the guidebook I read it from. It was quite an info overload! :)

Are you set on KF?

Where did you see the info on no co-signer loan availability for international students? I just accessed the financial aid link and this is what I saw:

CFI cannot confirm funding availability for the EXTRA MBA Loan Program for the 2010-2011 academic year at this time. This will be finalized in January/February 2010.

I asked a current student when I should enlist for the ASW and he said that Apr 23 shouldn't be a problem unless more students sign up. I'll be emailing the KF ASW staff as well. I'll update you if I get word.

I got mine yesterday, so you should be getting one soon (I live in Durham). It's a pretty nice looking hardcover Class of 2012 student guide. Very nicely done compared to the flash drive I got from Duke that doesn't even work. Argh.

The guide had the same admit letter and then quite a bit of extra information. Most of it you can find on the admitted student website, but it's nice to have it all put together well. Mine didn't have any additional information scholarship-wise, but that could just be that I didn't get one. Or it could be that that letter goes out separately (7-10 days as the website says), so who knows? Just glad I got in and actually have a choice to make! All the best!

For those who have been waitlisted, who do you recommend contacting to give updated information for your application? And should this be done with a letter, or is an email sufficient? Thanks!

As per Susan Brooks in her email about loans for international students, all fellowship/scholarship details will be emailed no Feb 12. We will all get an email regardless if we received a fellowhip/scholarship or not.

She also confirmed the availability of no co-signer loans for all international students. This will include tuition and other mandatory fees. Living expenses will NOT be covered. The full details will be communicated to students in the next weeks/months.

I haven't decided yet. I'll try to visit both schools over the next couple of months before deciding. Duke and UNC are the only two schools I got into -- I applied pretty early (October, November rounds). Good luck with everything.

Sounds like something good to worry about. :)

I am hoping to be in a similar situation where I have to pick schools. I really enjoyed UNC's environment. Duke's campus was very impressive, especially with the new building. Having their own library is a definite plus.

In the same boat here (hopefully). Applied to, visited and interviewed at both schools. I actually live in the area and my wife has said that, while I may apply to any school in the nation, I really only have two choices as far as she's concerned. Love it.

Good luck to all. May we all be so lucky as to have choices! :lol:

Got a ping today from KF asking for official transcripts. Guess I must have missed that we were supposed to send those from the start ... most schools just need scans unless you are already accepted. Anyway, they broke the radio silence for a second!

Does anyone know when Experience Weekend is? Just want to get these all on my calendar just in case...
