MadtownJacket Posted January 2, 2014 Share Posted January 2, 2014 If you haven't kept up with the news lately, UNC has been getting a lot of exposure for their scandal that's maybe 2-3 years old, and it doesn't look like it's going to end anytime soon. http://www.businessweek.com/articles/2014-01-02/the-scandal-bowl-tar-heels-football-academic-fraud-and-implicit-racism I'm applying to UNC for one of their programs that's top 3 in the nation, and it's highly regarded around the world. In addition, it's my dream school. Should I be concerned that it could impact the integrity of the graduate degree if I were to pursue it at UNC? My guess is that since the scandal occurred in a completely unrelated undergraduate department, and was mostly targeted at athletes, then I shouldn't be worried. I'm hoping that administrators and professors are addressing this issue to prevent it from happening again. Thoughts? I hate to bring this up and shine more light on the unfortunate situation, but there may be others that might have questions about it too. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
