What is everyone's age here in this forum?

I applied late and actually just took the GMAT and sent it to UNC. Waiting to hear back from them. I got a 690 on the GMAT which was my first time taking it so I'm guessing thats alright.

The main thing I'm worried about though is my lack of work experience. How much work experience did you guys have? I've been looking for entry level accounting positions or any "business" related entry level positions but so far no good. And I really need to get one because my long term goal once this MAC program is finished is to apply to a full fledge MBA program. Its kinda frustrating cuz it seems like the only way to get your foot in the door is if you already had the connections which I don't due to my completely different background.

How much have you actually looked into UNC? It caps the # of courses in accounting you can come in with at 3 or 4. I'm 23 and so is my roommate who's starting the same program. They don't look for work experience, especially accounting experience. I don't imagine anyone would have any relevant experience in accounting for this particular program, given the course cap. I'm sure you're not the only one looking at an MBA down the line...

Seeing as how I've already applied I think I have looked at them pretty closely. So yes I know about what they want and don't want from their candidates. I think its dumb but thats their policy so whatever.

And the job is more for when I apply for the MBA programs down the road. I want a position that in which I can show growth as an individual and employee. But the key of course if finding something to begin with.

When is everyone moving up/down there? I should be there on the 11th of May. Gives me a week to get settled in before orientation. Finishing up my job here this week. I can't wait to be back into a school routine. Making sure I have everything I need before the drive up. It will be my first time living more than 20 minutes from home... I'm excited to experience it.

Orientation can't get here soon enough!

I have a problem and I hope somebody can help :(

I start classes on the 21st but my on-campus apartment is not ready until June 2nd. The Housing Office will not let me move in early and extended stay hotels are nearly $100 per night. Does anyone have a spare couch I can crash on for a few days? I'll need to stay from Sunday through Thursday night (May 20-24th) and Sunday through Thursday night again (May 27th through May 31). I am a guy, clean, and I would be happy to chip in with rent/utilities.

If anyone can help send me a PM and I will give you my info. Any help will be greatly appreciated!!!!

I just moved in today. I have to take a placement test on Tuesday, if anyone else is doing that, so I'll be on campus doing some fun and exciting review tomorrow and Monday. Feel free to PM me if you want to grab a quick lunch or something!

Reaching Chapel Hill on the 15th of May - tuesday.

Visited the campus once last week -- its pretty awesome .. was driving around. It took me a good deal of time to find the business school - didn't have a map though.

saw some part of the BSBA graduation ceremony too.

You can find out about textbooks for our first too classes through the UNC bookstore website. Not the easiest interface, but it didn't take too long. Just look up by course info. Ended up getting them on Amazon used and will be here guaranteed on Thursday. Saved A LOT over the bookstore used price. Can't really do anything about the coursepack, but what can you do?

Finding some really good restaurants around. Everybody ready for Friday? It finally seems like we're getting some emails and there is a little bit of communication going on. Hopefully it can only get better.
