Hi! I'm starting the MAC program at UNC in May along with everyone else. I went to undergrad at UNC and currently work in Chapel Hill. Someone pointed out earlier not to ignore the apartments on MLK and I wanted to further reiterate this point. The buses travel down this road during the heavy traffic times of day every ten minutes and they will take you all the way to the b-school. Shadowood is an older complex but is heavily populated with graduate students.

Chapel View is also a very affordable option and where I will be living. They have 1 and 2 bedroom apartments and all utilities are included in the price including internet and cable. Along with that there is free printing services, a gym, a pool, and tanning beds along with a lounge to rent movies from for free. Directly beside Chapel View is a sister property, Chapel Ridge whose amenities you can use. I wouldnt suggest it for housing purposes because it is very much an undergraduate students complex with noise throughout the night.

Today I spoke with Stacie Hewett as I received an email that I should go ahead and register for all summer and fall courses through the registrar's office. She confirmed that the MAC Program would take care of the registration process. UNC's websites are fairly unorganized when it comes to setting up ONYEN's and obtaining a PID number. Once you get this done things will become much much easier. Connect Carolina is a good place to look for all your information. It will let you know the status of your financial aid application, when you're registered for classes, and when the time comes your class schedule. The website is cc.unc.edu

It would be in your best interest if the MAC program is anything like Undergrad to start playing around on this website to get an idea of how it works as you will use it to register for classes and on the status of other important issues.

Also, its really important to remember when searching for housing that proximity to campus doesn't necessarily mean better access at Carolina. From Carrboro, the bus rides tend to be longer and the schedules are more spaced out. Really look at the Chapel Hill Transit bus schedules when picking a place if you will rely on public transportation. Our public transportation is really awesome and reliable you just need to know what you're signing up for in advance or it can be very frustrating.
