The decision release date for UNC Kenan Flagler is Monday, March 14th. Right around the corner! Lots of luck!

Looks like I spoke too soon! I got the call from UNC not too long ago--Consortium fellowship with stipend. I was admitted during Rd 1 of the Consortium but UNC reviews Rd 1 and Rd 2 applicants together. Good luck to everyone still waiting for news!

I got a call from UNC at 5:30 Pacific today, but wasn't able to pick up. The voicemail said I have the fellowship. Going to choose between Haas and UNC over the next couple of weeks.

Waiting on Anderson as well. It seems they lag behind the other schools.


Is Anderson the last school to notify? Seems like all others have already started but them.


I haven't heard any fellowship news from Ross either. Seems like those are bringing up the rear.


Has anyone reached out to Anderson or Ross for dates?



Great. So basically everyone from the Consortium finds out if they are accepted into the Consortium or not. But if you applied to UCLA and they have not reached a decision, we cannot know whether we will be allowed into the Consortium until the last school (UCLA) actually accepts or dings us.

" For example, if you applied to six schools, and we have only received admission decisions from five of the schools, we will not release your membership decision until that sixth school informs us of your admission decision. " --From the email

Can you receive the fellowship and not membership, and vice versa?

Not exactly. Here are the multitude of options you can expect to face as part of your consortium application.

1 - Denied from your schools. Therefore, Consortium membership irrelevant.
2 - Accepted into your schools, but denied Consortium membership.
3 - Accepted into your schools, accepted into Consortium, but no Fellowship granted by the schools you were admitted into.
4 - Accepted into your schools, accepted into Consortium, Fellowship granted by one of your admitted schools.

Thanks so much! So based on your response, it appears that if you receive the fellowship, you receive membership as well. I'm just curious because I received the fellowship from USC, but UCLA is actually my top choice and they still haven't released decisions yet. Clearly I won't be receiving the fellowship from Anderson, but I'm definitely still interested in becoming a Consortium member if accepted.

Yup from my understanding as well you have definitely been accepted into Consortium.

I'm waiting on UCLA as well, it was my last choice so not expecting much, but it's so strange it's taking them so long. I know they definitely made calls to some non-Consortium people in the last couple of weeks.
