UNC-Chapel Hill


Recommended Posts

Me too. the anxiety is killing me. Considering the class size is going to be small and seeing so many acceptance i dont know if no news is good news applies anymore lol

Yeah, I'm starting to think a waitlist is the best case scenario right now. Either way, I just want to know my decision.

Yeah. But waitlist is good enough for me. But idk maybe they are not notifying just because the snow is delaying everything?

This is definitely going to be a long weekend. It's certainly curious that acceptances, rejections, and wait-list notificatins have been sent out, but some people haven't heard anything yet. I'm starting to think the rest of us might not hear anything for another week or so since they said notifications are sent out in waves. Maybe they reserve sending some of the rejection/waitlist notifications until they see how many offers are accepted. But, then I wonder why they wouldn't just put everyone else they still wanted to give a chance to on the wait-list.

It's all so confusing! LOL

We made a trip out to Chapel Hill this past October to do some preliminary house hunting just in case because not only do I really want to be part of their program, but we'd actually really like to put down roots in Chapel Hill. So much so that we'll probably move to the Chapel Hill/Pittsboro area anyway if I don't get in.

Good Luck to everyone!

And to everyone else who has been accepted/rejected/waitlisted, thank you so much for taking the time to share what you know here!

Welp, just got my rejection email. It was an email telling me to check my app portal where the decision was posted. The rejection letter specifically mentioned research interests, so that may have been a factor since I didn't discuss research at all in my SOP. I also get the feeling they take a lot of their own undergrads. I listened to last year's accepted students event via lecture capture, and when they went around the room, many students were current UNC undergrads. Also, all except one were current undergrad students, and I have been out of school for several years. Just guessing that these may have contributed. Disappointing for sure, but I'm happy to have gotten in to some other great programs. Good luck to everyone still waiting to hear!

Ouch...so sorry to hear that, onedayslp.  But, looks like you've been accepted to some great programs and have a few more to hear from yet.   I still haven't heard anything, but now I'm afraid to go check my portal :-/

 

I applied to CU Boulder as well, so maybe we can suffer through waiting to hear back from them together as well,  lol.  I saw one acceptance phonecall post a long time ago and nothing since, so another odd-ball situation.

I just checked my portal this morning and it still doesn't have a decision. As if my anxiety needs anymore fuel!

I am with you.  I am trying to distract myself with physics homework, but of course I am sitting right in front of my computer constantly refreshing the results page and keeping an eye on my email.  At least we should know something by the end of this week, but after seeing the two rejections this morning I was sure I'd hear something today.  As the afternoon rolls on, I'm starting to think it will be another day of no news.

 

I keep telling myself no news is good news....but it's also torture!

It is good news since they've given out rejections. So it means they don't wanna reject your application, right.

From your lips to the admissions committee's ears!

BTW, any news from Emerson? How many programs did you apply to?

Best of luck to you!

Oh. I'm so sorry :(

Nope, no news yet.

I applied to 12(paranoid international student, I know)

Have got a reject from 1, 1 refused to accept our degree for eligibility to apply. One accept. Two interviews.

Waiting on all the rest.

Do you know if there were a lot who were waitlisted?

Any chances of a change of status?

PorqueMoi, chatterbrain oh my. But at least there are better schools out there. I have not heard anything from them but im bracing for the bad news. Somebody on the forum said that the waitlist have all been given out.

On the sidenote, my unc application is now completed lol.

I was a student at UNC for undergrad and I just got my rejection email, so UNC students can't be given that much preference over everyone else! Don't give up hope just because you didn't go there for undergrad :) good luck to everyone who hasn't heard back yet!

I wish you the best of luck, Speechie92! It definitely stung seeing that rejection letter. Not that it was a total surprise, since it's so competitive, but I hadn't truly given up hope yet

Now on to stressing about all the other schools I'm waiting on that have also had odd notification habits this year, lol. At least I know I've got one acceptane to rely on :-)

I have no idea, my rejection letter hadn't mentioned anything about any acceptance letters, sorry! I only know last year they sent out 37 offers of acceptance based on EdFind, and it looks like there's been maybe around 10 acceptances posted on here so far, so there's probably about 30 or less acceptance offers left! Good luck!

Hello all!

 

I was accepted into UNC's program during the last week of February through phone call, but just stumbled across this forum. I will most likely, about 99% sure, be accepting here.. Just waiting on funding.

 

For those accepted, has anyone made a Facebook yet? I would love to meet you all and discuss living situations.

For those who are still in limbo, GOOD LUCK! Whether it is UNC or another university you get into, I know you (we!) will all be great future SLP's!
