UNC-Chapel Hill


Recommended Posts

Hello All :) ,

 

I was just wondering if anyone else noticed the rejection posted to the results page for UNC-Chapel Hill.  I am so nervous and confused now! :unsure:   I wasn't expecting to see any notifications from UNC-CH until March.  Their web page states notifications will be sent out by the second week of March and the email sent out from the department verifying application submission stated decisions should be made mid-March.  Plus, there is only one result posted for UNC-CH today.

 

Does anyone have anymore info?  If you are the person who posted your result from Chapel Hill today would you mind verifying?  I'm driving myself a little bananas over here, lol. 

 

:huh::blink::wacko::unsure::(:D

I'm with you! I also wasn't expecting any UNC notifications to pop up yet. It's in my top 2 programs, so I am keeping an eye out. They did say March, but in 2013 they sent notifications out at the end of February. So who knows, maybe we will hear this week! Fingers crossed!

I am not ashamed to admit I have someone else suffering with me!  LOL.  Okay, I'm a little ashamed, but mostly glad :P

 

I noticed they sent out notifications as soon as February in 2013 also, but it seems they have always sent out acceptances before rejections.  Chapel Hill is my top program, so this is a little crazy-making. 

 

BTW, awesome stats, onedayslp.  I'm usually a great test-taker, but the GRE snuck up on me and I had no time to retake.  I am hoping my strong LsOR and hopefully impressive SOP will make a difference.

Oh my god. Was there a rejection posted? UNC is one of my top choices and it comes to a point where i know that if i get an email im rejected and a phone call means im accepted. Not having high hopes for an acceptance though. I dont think my stats are good enough

speechie92,

 

UNC-CH is my top choice, and I've done a lot of investigating into their program and notification habits, etc.  I would not assume that an email equals rejection.  Although you do see a lot of phone calls for acceptances (especially last year), if you really dig you will notice that some people who were accepted only received emails.  I am referring to first-tier acceptances, not wait-list acceptances.  Also, while Chapel Hill certainly attracts students who have proven their ability to perform under pressure, the SPHS program prides itself on trying to assure they accept balanced students into their program.  Simply put, character counts. 

 

Have you listened to any of their lecture captures from past information sessions for accepted students?  They currently only have last year's available, but I have had my eye on their program for awhile and have listened to previous years' lectures as well.  Here is the link to last year's: https://echo2.med.unc.edu:8443/ess/echo/presentation/383d8dae-fdff-4687-bbed-9268e9105315

 

In the information session for 2012, I believe, one of the professors asked one of the current graduate students to say a few words about their application experience.  The student basically said that while it is not an easy program, that there is a strong focus mentor-student relationship and that while her stats were less-than stellar, she felt her SOP really helped her get in.  She mentioned that she had a friend who also applied and had a 4.0 and top GRE scores who was denied. 

 

Of course, it is on a case-by-case basis, and we all know how competitive a program it is, but don't give up hope.

 

Now, if we can all just manage to get a good night's rest tonight while wondering about this peculiar results post...

HI Chatterbrain,

 

I can only hope that my SOP can turn the tables around. Either way, i honestly feel that sometimes its more of luck and chance because no one exactly knows what the admission committees are looking for. I just hope that i am given a chance! Waitlist is good enough for me!

The original results poster replied to the request for additional  info this morning.  If that person sees this, I want to say thank you for sharing that with us.  I didn't want to clog up the results page with another non-actual results post. 

 

This is the first time I've seen a rejection posted before an acceptance from UNC-CH.  For the last couple of years, at least, all or most of the acceptances came out first.  Now I'm wondering how soon we'll start to see more results from them--or receive them ourselves. 

 

Good luck to all the UNC-CH hopefuls!

ChatterBrain, when did you get the email from the department verifying submission? I just realized that I never received anything like that. :( Freaking out a little.. 

 

My application portal status says "Submitted". Is that what yours says? 

 

Thanks!

onedayslp,

I'm sure you have nothing to worry about! Yes, my application status on ApplyYourself is 'submitted.'

I do not remember the specifics of the email; I just remember noting that when i was scanning through my emails the other day looking for anymore helpful or hints regarding a notification date.

I am on my mobile, but when I get home I will look through my emails.

Did anyone notice the ACCEPTANCE to UNC-CH posted today??

If the person who posted that is reading this, would you mind replying so we can congratulate you....and then attack you with a barrage of questions? ;-)

Okay, I just went through my emails from UNC-CH.  I have labels set up in my gmail to tag all the emails I get from each school automatically and put them in their own folders.  Well, the email I saw the "decisions should be made mid-March," was actually in an email from the University of SOUTH Carolina!  I'm so sorry to contribute to your stress. 

 

Just goes to show you can't trust gmail ;-/. 

 

Back to stressing out--a SECOND acceptance phonecall to UNC-CH was just posted.  I may not get any sleep tonight.  I know the last couple of years people received acceptance phonecalls over a period of a couple of days, and then a random call or two would straggle in within about a week.  I really hope my phone rings tomorrow with a phone number from North Carolina!  This is my dream program!

Thank you so much for looking into that! I did think it was odd that I never got a confirmation email, but I'm glad I wasn't the only one! Looks like there has been another UNC acceptance.. best of luck to you, hope you get good news!

Speechie92, was that you that just posted getting an acceptance call yesterday? The stat numbers match, but they're reversed ;-). If so, congratulations!

I wish I knew how late in the day the calls were made. So far only rejections posted for today. I guess no news is good news, but also driving me bonkers!

I keep telling myself that I will probably hear something by the end of the week--but that feels so far away.

*Deep breath*

That was me! I was just wait listed. Got an email with the subject title "wait list" :P At least they got right to the point.

 

Apparently there were 392 applicants this year. They also have a policy where they don't inform you of your ranking on the wait list and ask that you don't email or call inquiring about it.

So right now with no notice that im accepted/waitlisted/rejected. it suddenly dawned upon me that my application might not be complete. So a question for you All. Are your supplemental application listed as submitted but the application is incomplete?

Congratulations Mimblewimble! Does your portal also say waitlisted now? Also, did you just receive the email or did it come earlier today? Also, did they mention how many people are on the waitlist?

Sorry to hit you with so many questions! Thanks in advance if you're kind enough to answer. ;-)

Thanks and no problem! My portal has not updated. I received the email at 2:45 PM today and they released no information about the wait list. They only mentioned having 392 applicants this year. Sorry I don't have any more info!
