UNC Decision day in 8 days [#permalink]

Rhyme and others,

UNC decision date is fast approaching and as expected I am getting the usual jitters.
My interview was conducted a month ago and after that no major communication.

Do you suggest that I contact the adcom at this point and ask some general questions like are the decisions rolling etc etc.

IMO at this point in the game I don't see any point. If I were the adcom I would say that the candidate can wait for another 8 days.

I wouldn't bother. A couple of reasons -

1) You'll only talk to a low level receptionist type person and wouldn't have any impact anyway.
2) In all honesty they've probably read your application several times and have already made a decision. If not, a quick phone call to ask a few questions will hardly make or break your app. Moreover, you and everyone else would probably be calling this week to ask these kinds of questions - it doesn't differentiate you in any tangible way.
3) Even if you do talk to an adcom, what would you say that would be a meaningful addition to your file?

I know its nerve racking. Trust me, I know. I can't believe how on edge I was for Cornell, a school that I wasn't even really all that interested in (though I've warmed up to the idea a lot). Find solace in this fact:

The poor bast*rds like myself who applied to Kellogg get to sit on pins and needlees from now until Jan 8. We could get a call anytime between now and then. I used to think this was a "good thing" and liked that Kellogg rolled admissions during these last few weeks - and I used to curse the GSB for not doing the same - I've since come to realize I'd much much rather have to wait for a single date and bite my nails like mad for 8 or 9 hours than wonder each and every single day for the next 30 days. For instance, when it was reported that Kellogg might be releasing decisions last Friday, what pops up on my cell phone? An 847 area code number. I answer it, "Hello is this X?" I mean really, could you get my hopes upanymore? It was just a store following up on a call I'd made a few weeks back. Moments like that are going to drive me absolutely BONKO for the next 30 days.

So, sit back, do the impossible and try and relax....

Hey count me in!! same case here wit CMU Tepper. Infact i'd my interview well b4 i submitted my apps on Sept 27th. apps went complete on 31st oct and still gotta wait 18 days more (more than you ). Guess its the same feeling with everyone.I thought of contacting the adcom but then what do i say now?? Everything is done with the apps.. No other way than to kill these remaining days !!

Guess it must be more tougher for guys appin to H/S/W..

Rhyme having extra funtime with Kellogg added to HBS,hehe..

Exactly my thoughts.

Well I can't begin to imagine what you must be going through.

Well at least you have your Wii and Xbox.....

Seriously speaking I think after this is all over we all must just sit down somewhere for drinks and remember the days gone by.

I just found out I have been waitlisted at UNC. I'm a bit frustrated, but atleast I wasn't rejected outright.

Does anyone know historically how UNC is for eventually offering admission to those that are waitlisted?

You can get that info from BusinessWeek. If I'm not mistaken I think that a little more than 10% of waitlisted applicants were admitted last year.
