What happens to the scholarship money offered to admits who decide to go to some other school? Does everybody else in the list moves up? If an admit with 20K$ decides not to take it will it be offered to an admit with 19K$. I guess it depends on school and type of scholarship but is there a "more often that not" process.

Great news, PaulK!
So which b-school are you going to attend then???


Thanks nervous. Between Vandy and UNC, it's a tough choice. I started pursuing an MBA program because of Owen, but the visit to UNC was far and away the most impressive I had. I guess I'll wait to see about potential scholarship, but with UNC's strong real estate program I'm leaning that way.

If you opt for one of your other admits, can you request transfer of your fellowship? :-D

Bdevil, where did you see that? I just finished scrolling through the KF website but couldn't find anything, and the letter didn't mention anything about scholarships.

PaulK,

Check out the web address below - it's a description of all fellowships available. It's not explicit, but I think, based on what I see there, that the "Premier Fellows" are notified early, but everyone else receives notification in 7-10 days. In fact, it said somewhere that everyone will be notified positive or negative regarding scholarships.

Here's the official word. This was in an e-mail sent to me about financial aid:

"All students are considered for merit-based fellowship funding as awarded through the MBA Admissions Office. Students who have not already been notified of a fellowship offer will be contacted directly via email regarding fellowships by Monday, February 14, 2008. All students will be contacted whether they receive a fellowship or not."

"Monday, February 14th?" . Thats the second time they have missed a date - Sounds like they need a new calendar. I can see Feb 14 isn't a monday in 2007-2010.
Hopefully this means they are forgiving with applicants making small mistakes as well! :-D

"Fellowship decisions mailed 7-10 days after decision release for each deadline". Thanks Bdevil, hopefully us non-premier folks will receive some good news in a couple of weeks.

I got that email also. "Dear Admitted Student," is slightly better than Haas's rejection letter that said "Dear [Applicant Preferred Name]" followed by a lengthy email from the Dean the next day to apologize.

KF just needs to work on their calendar. :lol:

Speaking of which, what made you decide on applying at UNC all the way from Washington (I presume)?

I only ask because I'm actually from Oregon, so I'm right there with you.

Funny, I can't answer for westwider, but I actually live in Oregon. My wife and I were just planning out the logistics of a potential cross-country move tonight.

I visited Chapel Hill a few years back and thought it was fantastic. Then, as I started to narrow down the schools I wanted to apply to, I found Kenan-Flagler was a great fit. So I followed through, visited the school, and the visit was fantastic.

Mostly, just ready to try something new, but not quite ready to live in a big city, so Vanderbilt, UNC, and Duke seemed like the best choices.

To be fair, I just checked out your info Bdevil, and I'm sad to hear you're a Beaver. :cry: We're Ducks all the way. I'll still be rooting for your baseball team though...I don't know why they're deciding they need to start one at UO now.

:lol: That's awesome. In Oregon there's not much choice, if you want to be an engineer you have to be a Beaver!

My wife and I just moved to North Carolina a little over 2 months ago. We chose NC because, other than the ridiculous summers, it's actually reminiscent of Western Oregon. Mountains (at least close by), beach (much better than our coast), green, and generally low key. We're enjoying ourselves so far. So have you decided where you'll set up shop yet?

Does anyone know how the rules for In-State tuition apply?

I applied RD3 here so I'm not going to hear back until mid March, but if you attend are you out of state for year 1 and then qualify in-state for year 2?

Most schools this doesn't make a huge difference, but at UNC it makes a very significant difference.

Just wondering how that works.

I know what you mean :shock:

Actually, the rules are pretty stringent for in-state distinction. The state makes judgments on a case-by-case basis and you have to give reasonable proof that you're not just coming here to go to school, but rather that you plan on working in NC for a while.

For instance, my wife and I moved to NC for her education. Even if I lived in NC for a year and had a job, it wouldn't necessarily be a cakewalk to try for in-state tuition because they could look at our overall situation and say we only moved here for her education and not for my career.

So short story, there's no way to get in-state tuition unless you move to NC for your career and work at least a year before starting b-school. At least that's my understanding from the discussions I've had with admissions reps from NC and Michigan. If anyone else has anything to add, feel free!

After answering this question, I realized that I actually do have a little underlying anxiety about the price differential between in-state and out-of-state tuition. Does anyone have any idea what the ratio of in-state to out-of-state students is?

In all, it's about $10k less over 2 years than the private school down the road, but it's still in the price range of the elite/ultra-elite schools. Is UNC worth the price for out-of-staters? I hope so! Any thoughts?
