Tough choice if these are the only options - they are very similar and geographically in the vicinity too. Just curious how you are planning to do it.
If you don't mind, what are your goals and what is your background?


I'm unsure at this point. Both great schools in the same geographical location like you said. I think I'm leaning more towards UNC but Emory offered up money which makes it enticing. Still waiting on other Round 2 schools too.

I want to pursue a career in finance (most likely investment banking) and UNC and Emory places the same percentage (last time I checked). Still lots to think about at this point.



Cool.
Doesn't it help to be in a City for your career goal - from networking point of view? And I think, the money on the table helps when it comes to recruiting.

But yea, UNC is just great one there. I truely believe in tiered ranking and then fit. So, those two are very similar. It totally depends on money and what lifestyle you want.
Have you visited schools?

Wanted to give my notes to anyone else with an interview coming up

This was a blind interview, the adcom only had my resume
Questions asked:

1. Why do you want to go to business school?
2. What do you want to do post business school?
3. What do you see yourself doing in the long term?
4. Do you currently work in a team? What do you think is the most important thing when working with teams?
5. What is your best attribute that your manager, colleague or direct report would say about you in terms of soft skills?
6. What is something you would want to work on?
7. What is your greatest accomplishment?
8. Why UNC Kenan Flagler?
9. Questions for the interviewer

It was a fairly conversational interview with follow up questions related to my answers. A couple of things of note. The interviewer gave me the impression that UNC prioritizes an applicants ability to work in teams because they focus on a collaborative learning environment. Also, beyond just their clubs or curriculum offerings, the interviewer talked a lot about how UNC prides themselves on their leadership program, so that's worth talking about when answering "why kenan flagler?".
Hope this is helpful to someone

Well, just finished the interview with UNC. I was interviewed by a member of admission team and I felt very disappointed at the attitude and preparation of the interviewer. I asked two specific questions about investment class and one question about the degree of which an international applicant could borrow loans to finance his or her education. She didn’t know. I was totally speechless!

She quizzed me as if I were a criminal lol. Cold face, minimal eye contact, smile two times (I can count number of time she smiled lol)

Here is the list of question:

1. Tell me about your job? What do you like most about it?
2. What is a typical day of your job?
3. What type of external partners are you dealing with?
4. What about internal parties?
5. How do you manage stress?
6. Your biggest accomplishment?
7. Your experience of failure?
8. Why UNC?
9. Career goals?Long-term and short-term?
10. Tell me about the occasion that led you to choose your desired career path
11. Tell me about your team work experience?
12. What characteristics are you looking for when recruiting team member?
13. What personal trait do you admire most about your boss?
14. What is the area of your boss that you believe can be improved?
15. Tell me about a time you failed and lesson learned?
16. What is your biggest accomplishment out side of work?
17. What is the best way in your opinion to develop your team member?
18. Any questions for me? I asked three and she didn’t know. So the last question is about ASW and thanks god, she knew!!!!!

The interview lasted 30 mins and 53 seconds!!

Good luck guys!

Just received that package with videos.
But no letter with it. The packaging mentioned contents as an admission letter and a video brochure.

Did anyone get a letter along with the brochure? I think I will need to apply for a loan here.

No letter here either. Just the welcome card on the inside sleeve of the video folder.
