Hi,

Does UNC give any relaxation on its application process, with regards to recommendations etc? I don't think 'senior executive' recommendation would be a true reflection.. can anybody guide?

P.S: I have already mailed on MBA Outreach id but they haven't reverted.

Thanks

Would all applications at other schools be withdrawn right away if you got accepted in the early action round? Would it be right away on the decision date, which is 15 December?

Same question here. After I apply for EA round can I still withdraw before the admission decision in Dec?

Re: Calling all (UNC) Kenan-Flagler Applicants - Class of 2017 [#permalink]
I need some guidance.
I think I'll be able to apply to only one out of Tepper and UNC. Is it true that one stands a better chance of scholarship at Kenan-Flagler than at Tepper?
Any down-sides of UNC? Is there a big difference between the rankings?

I'm a 28yo Indian male applicant. Any guidance is appreciated.

AFAIK - the Early Decision at KF is not binding as Duke's as in they don't tattle to other schools if you don't accept. I think it is because the EA deadline results come out in mid-december along with other school results.

I decided to confirm with the admission committee and this is the answer to our question;

For Early Action, you'll have to pay a non-refundable deposit of \$2,500 when you accept our admissions offer. If you decide to attend a different school after that time, you will only lose the deposit. You will have up until Jan 5th to accept the admissions offer and pay the deposit. We ask you be confident you want to come to UNC but have no way of holding you to it (except for the deposit).

Hope it clear for all of us

Submitted for Early Round.

I can still see that my waiver is not applied to the application after submission. I selected the "Pay by check/waiver" option.
How many days after the submission can I expect this waiver to be confirmed so that I can go ahead and schedule my interview?

I have currently reached out to the alum in my city. Are there any strong pros/cons that tilt the balance?

I received a waiver and then got this email when I submitted my application. Looks like it could be a few days until they get through all the submitted applications and change the status.

Quote:
If you selected the "Pay by Check/Fee Waiver" payment option, please note that your payment status will remain as "not paid" until we have processed your application.

If you are paying by check, you will need to mail your check to us. Once we receive your check and process your application, your payment status will change to "paid".
If you qualify for a fee waiver, your payment status will remain as "not paid" until you have submitted your application and we have confirmed your fee waiver eligibility. At this time, your payment status with change to "waived".
