Does anyone know who will be the in-charge admission officer to receive the updated email from waitinglist candidates. I interviewed with alumna so I have no idea whom I should send the updated email to. Thanks in advance.

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.

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 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.

Sorry, I just saw that you already called them. Did you talk to them directly? You can send me a message and I can share IT support's email with you. Hope it helps!
