This post was
BOOKMARKED
This thread is for anyone who is either attending or seriously considering attending UNC next year. I know there is a separate thread for all applicants, but it's much more cumbersome to exchange information about the school, etc. when you have a bunch of other posts asking for chances, people posting stats, etc. This will make it easier to discuss about the program, housing, what to do in Chapel Hill, or even off-topic discussions that are relevant (i.e. how poorly our Tar Heels are playing this year). So if anyone is attending or strongly considering attending, feel free to join in here.

For the record, I will be attending in May.

I'm also attending UNC's MAC Program starting this May. If anyone is looking for a roommate, please send me a message. I prefer to live off campus because, based on what I've seen, it's significantly cheaper and nicer to live off campus.

Thanks!

Hey, y'all! Congrats! I'll also be attending, and I'm looking at Rock Creek Apartments. Are there other apartment complexes that stand out? If you're interested in prospective roommates, please send a message!

Hey all,

I have applied and will be interviewing at UNC this Monday, Feb 18. Excited about the opportunity. Any advice or thoughts on the process? Thanks

Is there a benefit to applying during Early Admission?

UNC is rolling admissions, so the sooner you apply, the less competition you'll face because there's more seats to fill. To the dude asking about interviews: I wouldn't stress about it too much. It's pretty much like a fit interview you'd get at most jobs and I think UNC mostly does it to make sure that you're not a psychopath rather than it being a huge factor in your admissions decision. If you can talk about your resume, why UNC, why accounting, and have 1 or 2 intelligent questions, you'll be straight.

Hi all,

I'm also planning to attending UNC's MAC program - starting in May. Anyone have apartment suggestions? I'd also be open to a roommate if anyone is interested.

I guess I make 5 on here.

Living on campus. Convenience winning out in my book over comfort.

Anyone UG at UNC? We'll need to all meet up and have a drink at some bar and I don't know any yet.

Question: Does anyone know how far away Odum is from Franklin street? I'm almost 90% sure that I'll be living on campus, so while going to UNC basketball games (I mean getting to class...) will be easy, I'm wondering how far away everything else is because I won't be having a car. I saw a similar q to this posted in the facebook group, but I was wondering if there were any other perspectives on this.

Looking forward to meeting you all in a few months!

Looks like a mile walk. Looks like just over half a mile to the smith center (yea, that's going to be dangerous).

Maybe someone has an idea on how this will work out. I emailed unc over a month ago to clarify my current number of accounting credits. I took the (2)intro accounting courses under quarters and now we have switched to semesters. 5 quarter hours = 3.3 semester hours. For a total of 6 or 6.6 credits? They have syllabi for each class and transcripts. I would like to use this time to knock out a few credits and keep my options open at the same time. I did send a follow up email about 2 weeks ago, with no success. I guess it is time to call.

I was on quarters and had to do a conversion as well. It might be too late to answer your question, but I believe 1Q hour = 0.7 semester hours. Therefore, if you take around 16 or 17 quarter hours of accounting classes, you should still be straight. For example, I remember that I took 16 accounting credits on my quarter system (the intro fin/managerial classes and then an intermediate financial and cost accounting class) and I was still eligible, but just barely. That's how UNC converts it and I went with that because my school didn't have any special conversions for situations like that. If your school does, however, I believe UNC goes with your school's calcs vs theirs but I could be wrong.

Still no response by UNC. It is not a pressing issue because my housing fell through for the summer.

Are you guys having fun yet? Another person from my class ('13) saw you guys sitting in Skender with looks of fear on your faces. The summer sucks, but it's not so bad (all the time) after that. Good luck!

I don't think your friend reads faces very well. It's usually exhaustion most of the time (for people who had him in the afternoon). Hand does a good job of keeping it lively up there with silly British-isms, but once CJ gets on a roll of writing out numbers and formulas it can be trying for even the most dedicated to remain attentive.

And where are all these 13' MAC people? Why dont they come and drink with us and share wisdom? Busy studying for the CPA?

Not yet, I have a November start date but most people are. A lot of people moved but a few of us are still around. My roommate (who also did the program) and I will be here until the end of July. Are you guys done with the first set of classes yet?
