Not sure if my recommender will be able to submit this by the due date. Does anyone know if there is a couple days of flexibility here?


I wrote to the adcom and they said that as long as your application is in by the deadline, we will allow the recommendation to come in a few days late. I suggest you write to them.

I just had my interview on the campus. It was very casual, in fact it was so casual its hard to even list the questions they asked. The only one that came around was a "Why do you want your MBA" which you should expect anyways, otherwise we talked about my work experience, what I did for my community for my job, the area I worked and so forth.

I interviewed with Alison, she was very relaxing person to interview with.

Guys, I scheduled a phone interview. Do we get to know the name of our interviewer before hand? Do let me know.

To answer the question above, no we do not. They pick out who interviews based on availability that day. Also, you should know that interviews at UNC are conducted blind, which means the interviewee will only know of your resume and nothing else from your application.

On a side note, is anyone else dying from the delay of knowing?

The interviews are blind only if the essays are not submitted.
I had my interview and my interviewer came with my essays printed. I asked him and he said he had access to my complete application and it is just his choice.

P.S i was interviewed with an alum in India

It sounds like the guy you interviewed with decided to read the essays. Online, on one of their blogs, they mention that their interview is blind and the person who interviewed me was.

I would probably count on that.

even i had an interview with an alum in India. He told me that he had access to my essays/application and would see them after completing the interview.

So i guess, the school policy is that interview is supposed to be blind, but the interviewer can look at your essays before the interview if he wishes to.

Infact, my interviewer also asked me my gmat score, something which they are not supposed to ask.

FYI.....my interview lasted for 2 hours!!

Hello all, R2 applicant here. Excited for the decision on Feb 4th. Has anyone received an admission call ahead of the decision date so far this year? From the 2011 and 2012 forums, they usually start calling applicants the week before the official date.

Thanks in advance. Good luck to everyone!

Question for R1 applicants here:

Does it really take them 7 days to announce about scholarships? Anyone got the answer earlier?

I'm a little bit time concerned, as i need to reply another school i got into.

According to the statistics on first page someone was admitted in R2. Have people started getting acceptance calls?

Per the table on the first page, that account was last updated the afternoon of January 24th. At that time, UNC hadn't yet finished the interview period (ended the 25th). I imagine this was a false report in the system given the timing of the profile update and the KFBS admissions process.

Unless, of course, the interviewer REALLY liked them and granted admission on the spot ;)

I received a call from admissions last week with my acceptance (from Round 2) with a very generous fellowship offer (and an invitation to attend a special weekend event with other prospective students offered the fellowship and current students/staff). Maybe they start calling people who recieved scholarships before the actual decision date?

Congrats! Well done on the fellowship. Seems they review applications prior to the end of interviews then.

After reading the forums from years past, these calls should continue through the end of this week.

Wow, that's really surprising...From other posts and official statement on the site the notification about scholarships suppose to arrive around 7 days after the acceptance announcement.

From what I have read, anything less than a full/substantially full scholarship is communicated in that 7 day timeframe following the Feb 4th decision date. Major scholarship recipients sometimes get a call the week leading up to the decision date.
