Hi All!

Posting this for folks who are waiting to hear back from UNC. This is my second round applying to their program, and the first time it took forever for them to get back to me(think late April). Hoping to see some post of people receiving admissions notices pretty soon!

 

Good luck!

I’m waiting too and it’s killing me lol

I just received an email from the Student Aid office saying my FAFSA was received but that’s it.

Have you attended one of the sessions? I was wondering if they mentioned when people should be hearing back during these meetings...?

Good luck to us both!!?

I attended a session a couple years ago, but the website says decision will roll out anywhere between late January and late March.

 

Sounds like people should definitely start hearing back this week then. Fingers crossed for us both!!  
When did you submit?

I applied and am waiting as well - sigh. @steste the note on the 600 applications so far shook me! Good to know, though.

Me too lol! When did you submit? Advanced or Regular? Seems like those that applied Advanced are hearing back already

Haha - well, it's nice to have this forum to commiserate! I submitted early December (12/8), for the regular program. Oy vey. I'm shaking in my boots already.

Hi! I received an email to check the portal for my decision and it was for the 2 year program. Hope this helps!

Congrats that is awesome! Do you mind if I ask what you had on your app? I am bad at waiting for decisions and trying to be hopeful (I applied for adv standing) but am stressing myself out haha

Sure! I mentioned my education (BSW) and the work I have done since graduating. I am a family/disaster case manager but have worked in several different counties in my state due to the damage on homes caused by natural disasters, and also worked with those areas local officials, plus some cases required communication with a few state officials. I also mentioned my other work within my agency, the programs I lead, and how I organized our food pantry during covid times. I also mentioned any trainings I have completed. 3 recs: all from people that I have worked with, 1 in my agency and 2 with different organizations.

I did not focus on my education as much because I graduated a few years ago and wanted to explain the work I have done since then.

Hope this helps!
