Tar Heel tips: Making the most of second year [#permalink] New post 06 Mar 2014, 14:00
FROM Kenan- Flagler Admissions Blog: Tar Heel tips: Making the most of second year
With less than 100 days until graduation for UNC Kenan-Flagler’s full-time MBA Class of 2014, the weeks are flying by in a haze of presentations, papers and perspiration. Second year students are gearing up for the bright future they have fostered during their time at UNC Kenan-Flagler, while also savoring their last days on campus and in Chapel Hill. With the wisdom of hindsight, second years are able to share advice with first year students – everything from academic and career guidance to tips on how to savor the Carolina experience.

Image
“Remember how helpful second year students were for you last fall as you were navigating academics and your career search. Bring that passion and more to the group of first years coming to Chapel Hill this fall.”– Jack Bierwirth

 

 

Image
“Stay involved in [UNC] Kenan-Flagler activities in your second year. Don’t fall off the face of the Business School planet! Connect with the first-year students, professors, and your classmates for the full two years!”– Nora Jabbour

 

 

Image
“We talk a whole lot about our core values of excellence, leadership, integrity, community, and teamwork. These are observable qualities and are absolutely important, but I would urge incoming students to also consider reflection. Business school is a great opportunity to stretch yourself beyond your comfort zone, and our Tar Heel community definitely provides the right environment to do so. But in order to know where and what to stretch, you must develop a sense of self-awareness that requires you to stop, reflect, understand and then act.”– Ryan Chung

 

Of course, no Carolina experience is complete without cheering on the Tar Heels. “Attend sporting events… lots of them. UNC has world-class athletes in all sports! Beat [Duke]!” Jabbour says.

Most importantly, second year students urge first years to take advantage of all that UNC Kenan-Flagler has to offer. “I wish I knew how truly fast these two years go. I thought I was organized most of the time, but I could never be too ahead of the career search or school work,” reflects Bierwirth. “I wish I knew how many opportunities UNC provides. I only now have a full appreciation for all the opportunities that UNC provides across the concentrations.”

Keep track of the remaining days until graduation with this countdown clock!

Is it worth it to use the UNC non-US no cosigner loan at 8% to start building a credit history in the USA vs a 5% loan that has fx risks from my home country? I know it's an extra few $k a year but it seems it may be worth it to avoid borrowing in the wrong currency.

I could always use both I suppose to reduce the amount I need to borrow at the higher rate while still building credit history.

Co-signer in USA question: I have family in the USA, but I feel it would terribly rude to get tangled up in finances with family. Am I right in my thinking? The extra few $k in the higher interest rate seems worth it to avoid a potential problem with family.

I'm going for non-US no cosigner loan at 8%. The general opinion I heard is that this is a good protection against rate fluctuations but I haven't checked the actual figures. Based on the last two years this definitely seems like a good option who knows what the market would be like in the next two years. Yeah I agree asking family&friends can be messy especially when you consider that its a long term loan and the economic climate is not that healthy; its better to shell out the extra $s in interest.

I had to ask family members to cosign my undergraduate student loan. I was incredibly uncomfortable doing so, but I had confidence in myself that I work 3 jobs if I had to make sure that I could pay my debt. I also made sure to acquire a life and disability insurance that would pay the loan if something happened to me. If you do decide to go with a US loan, you should not that there is absolutely NO WAY to discharge that debt - even if you die, your family members will be held accountable. Hope this helps!

Also, I should say that while I was really upset to have to ask my family for financial assistance, it was no big deal to them and they were actually pleased to have a way to help me that didn't actually cost them any money.

Hi guys,

I am applying to the final round in UNC and the deadline is in a couple of days. I have been trying to setup an account on the UNC website to start the admission process. https://apply.kenan-flagler.unc.edu/mba/register.asp
But I am unable to create one :| Whenever I enter my details and submit it throws an error - "500 - Internal server error.
There is a problem with the resource you are looking for, and it cannot be displayed."

I have been getting this error for the past few days and the deadline is fast approaching. I have mailed the UNC office as well as called them and left a message. Still nothing's changed. Can anyone please help me out with this?

Thanks!

Hmm, that's odd. Did you try just completing the required fields? (the rest you can complete them later on)...

I had the same issue last month and called admission office to resolve it. The IT support told me that I had created an account. It's so weird.....

I suggest that you call admission office directly or try to reset username and password. Maybe you just encountered the same problem as mine.

Have you been admitted? A phone call or email may surprise y [#permalink] New post 13 Mar 2014, 09:00
FROM Kenan- Flagler Admissions Blog: Have you been admitted? A phone call or email may surprise you!
“You can’t see me, but I’m jumping up and down right now!”

Many things set UNC Kenan-Flagler Business School apart – everything from the core values of excellence, leadership, integrity, community and teamwork, to the strong and supportive alumni network – but the surprise weekend phone call or email that makes you want to jump up and down may be all the evidence you need to know that you have found a home at UNC Kenan-Flagler.

The Full-time MBA Admissions staff at UNC Kenan-Flagler is with you every step of the application and admissions process, from the day you click the Contact Me button on the website to your first day in class. In between are many anxious and exciting moments for you – and more than likely, at the top of that list are your interview day and decision day.

This is why we make sure the same person is there with you on both days.

Several days before the official announcement goes out, our Admissions officers are given the names of the newly-admitted applicants who they interviewed, and they are encouraged to contact “their admits” to give them the good news. Reactions range from extended silences to “I’m jumping up and down!” – and everything in between!

Here are some of our favorite responses from the most recent admission rounds:

  • “I was sleeping but this was the BEST WAKE UP CALL!!!”
  • “It is the best news for the weekend!”
  • “I am overjoyed. Thank you so much for the terrific news.”
  • “You just made my day! I am honored to be offered a place in the MBA Class of 2016 and am really excited to be a part of the Kenan-Flagler community.”
  • “I am so excited and grateful for the opportunity to be a part of Kenan-Flagler Class of 2016.”
  • “Thank you so much for the great news, especially during the New Year Holiday season.”
  • “Thank you from the bottom of my heart for considering me worthy to be part of your program!”
  • “It’s so nice that you informed of me of this good news! I was astonished to find the email from you since it was Sunday today. I was a little bit worried about that I did not do an excellent job in the interview because I was so nervous that night. Thanks a lot for [your] encouragement during my interview! It was really a nice process. And I appreciated the great help from the Kenan-Flagler alumni. I am so excited now!”
  • “I really appreciated the personal touch. I am very excited and consider it a huge accomplishment to get into UNC.”
  • “It’s still hard for me to think that this is reality. The past two days I kept on waking up thinking it was just a dream, but every time I check the call records it tells me otherwise. I [want] to thank you once again for this valuable opportunity, I can’t wait to start this new chapter in my life.”
  • (In an email) “I have a big smile :)
And one interviewer reported, “I can’t remember what he said exactly but there was a lot of yelling and screaming of excitement. … It’s nice to know that an applicant has that level of enthusiasm to become part of the Kenan-Flagler program!”

Think that excitement is short-lived? On the contrary! Many current UNC Kenan-Flagler MBA students have fond memories of their decision day – some even remember exactly where they were when they received their acceptance:

Image
“I remember Decision Day like it was yesterday. I was ecstatic to be accepted into UNC Kenan-Flagler’s full-time MBA program!” – Renaldo Chapman (MBA ’14)

 

 

Image
“I received my MBA acceptance notice on April 30, 2012 while I was in Tete, Mozambique.” – Bern Moorehead (MBA ’14)

 

 

Image
“I applied as early action and got my acceptance in mid-December. By February, I was ready to start!” – Imran Aukhil (MBA ’14)

 

 

The next decision day for UNC Kenan-Flagler’s Full-time MBA Program is Monday, March 17th. If you applied for deadline 3, make sure you have your phone nearby this weekend!
