These lines are definitely confusing.
From the first line "In certain ..... an applicant", I gather that they need the official transcript with the application.
From the second line "If the applicant ... enroll", it seems that they do accept unofficial transcripts with the application.
I am confused :beat


I'm going to do the official transcripts just to get it over with.

I'm a little ticked though, they said that all "supplemental material" needs to be send to the school in "one envelope". Well, I'm having my transcripts sent directly from my undergrad and graduate schools to UNC. I think they can figure it out.

I think that it's a clear indication of their website not being updated. I will get this clarified when I visit UNC next week. Can't utilize an official transcript of my college (took quite a lot of pain to get it done when I visited Bombay, last year) if I am not sure.

Has anyone visited UNC. How has your experience been ?

I did. The interview was pretty straight forward. We discussed my resume, my reasons for pursuing a MBA, my reasons for choosing to apply to UNC, etc. The interview was fairly relaxed and my interviewer was professional, but extremely nice.

Thanks for sharing the details. I am ready with my answer for Why UNC. And since I have already given two interviews, I am ready for the main questions.

Did you have a class visit, tour of campus ? How did you find the students ?

Anyone care to comment on UNC's health care reputation?

I noticed J&J was one of the top companies in terms of full term jobs placed.

The website isn't too well done, so I haven't been able to find the health care club, other than a brief reference to it's existence.

Just came back from a UNC info session.Spoke with an adcom member.

I asked her about loans to intl students without a cosigner.She said they do not have any issues with their bank so far and also said they have a regional bank willing to offer loans without a cosigner.

Regarding recruitment for jobs and internships,the adcom member said firms are reducing their transportation costs and so asking students to visit the firms instead of firms visting the school.Also said that interviews did not start,so she cannot comment on how bad recruitment season is going to be.

Ugh.

So I just sent in my letter for an application fee waiver, and somehow, someway, I accidentally left the F word in it at one point despite doing a find/replace and checking it line by line. That's right, Fuqua. Should I even bother applying R2 now?

Ya the F word was a horrible mistake. But, it shouldnt keep u out. I would still apply. Just go out of the way to show that UNC is ur top choice.

If it makes you feel better, I was at Kenan-Flagler a few weeks ago and they said someone left "Fuqua" in an admissions essay the previous year, and they still admitted them. So relax and just avoid doing it in your admissions essays...though even if you do, all hope might not be lost.

Good to know. I immediately followed up the original email with a 'Ignore previous: read this one' letter, but in case they do read it's good to know I'm not dead in the water. KF's app also has the dreaded 'what other schools are you applying to?' section (of which I personally loathe unless you put a disclaimer saying it won't affect your application). It's as if you get penalized for trying to put your best foot forward.

I hate it whn schools ask that question. Its very difficult to truthfully answer that. For example, I applied to Rice as my safety. They asked abt the schools as well. How do I list Tuck, Darden and other elite schools and tell them that Rice is my top choice?

Well, my fee waiver got approved. Probably because they felt it'd inflict more pain if I went through the hassle of an application before getting dinged for writing Fuqua rather than getting the hint earlier.

KF doesn't have any verbiage on their website specifically referring to fee waivers (most schools do). But pretty much every state school (and many non-state schools) will grant them if you are / were recently part of: Peace Corps, AmeriCorps, Teach for America, or the military. Generally some type of job where the pay is minimal and you can provide hard proof you were a member. If you're under some type of extreme financial hardship (aka you sunk all your paychecks into WorldCom stock or something) you may have a shot as well.

So, who got their apps in for R2? I submitted mine at noon, and am driving from Cleveland to Chapel Hill for an interview on the 15th.

I am in for Round 2 as well. Much like you, mine went in at 9pm, just a few hours before the deadline. I'm a bit worried, as I am in NYC and can't take off work to interview in Chapel Hill. Hopefully, they don't hold that against me too much!

Have any of you guys been in contact with current students? I email the president of the health care club, but no response. I couldn't find anything on the website that allowed you to get a hold of current students.

Help!
