They fudge their stats, and if you have no connections, don't attend a country club, and haven't been to 30 different countries, you're up the creek. One telltale sign: They claim that 100% of their alumni donate to the school, but i know of at least 5% of the graduating class that didn't, and they had students donate in those people's names. Business ethics in the 21st century, brah!

I'd venture most "higher" education is that way, but UNC MAC really sets the standard.

Are you really that unhappy with the program? What happened? I am considering them as my top choice and have heard nothing but good things, even from past graduates. One told me you're basically guaranteed a job as long as you don't do something really stupid...

Sorry to hear about the experience so far - how is it going a month in? Are you still around or you withdrawing from the program?
I can tell you that no program/school no mater how highly ranked will be perfect. None of them are. Even the top 3 or the top 5 have issues and idiots. How idiots get in there - I have no idea, but they must be smarter than me since they figured it out.

I'm an alumnus, graduating near the top quarter of last year's cohort with no offer. With a 720 GMAT, no "idiot" am I. I can actually speak English (though with a Southern flair), unlike some of the graduates. I don't have a frat or country club pedigree, and I don't summer all over the world, so that could've been a dealbreaker. I used the STAR technique during behavioral questions, was reasonably social (talked about sports, travel; asked about the recruiters' experiences and advice; listened closely*).

With an online program soon gearing up, UNC diploma mill won't be any more "prestigious" than U of Phoenix! At least U of Phoenix is rather up front about their association with banksters and other rent-seekers; "public" schools like UNC are sheep in wolves clothing.

*Something half the graduating class seemed unable to do, judging from class experiences.

Could you give any more detail about what your experience with the recruitment process was? Maybe what kind of jobs you were interviewing for in which cities? I'm interested in the program and know that the numbers the school uses don't fully reflect the situation for graduates. At the same time, it's hard to take this very seriously when you just keep railing on fraternities and country clubs (and I don't have any connection to either).

As a current student in 2017 this information is still very accurate.
