    Counselor rec was probably generic because we have over 3000 kids and there is no real personal connection
    Common App essay was about an injury+basketball and how I overcame it

    Pretty nervous, this is a pretty basic chance me because I am doing it during notes lol

    If the pattern from previous years holds true then the decisions will be released on the last Friday in January between 4:00 pm and 4:30 pm EST. So I would definitely be logged in to your Carolina portal and be hitting refresh beginning at 4:00 pm on Friday January 25th if I were you. Good luck everyone!

    Could they possibly release them earlier?

    In theory, yes. But I don't think they have in recent years. Check the previous EA threads to see if they have.

    follow up -- does UNC look at/limit the number of people they accept from one school or one state. I know about the whole 18% rule, but if a significant (5-10) number of kids are applying from one school, I know not all of them will get in obviously, but do they have a student cap like other schools do? (Georgetown for example does 2 from a school) And how much more of a disadvantage does a lot of student applying from your school put you at?

    I called UNC this summer, and a fairly open AO told me that the accepted OOS students tend to have SATs that hover around 1500 and ACTs that hover around 34. She said those numbers are clearly a lot higher than the averages for in-state students. So, they use OSS scores to raise their overall averages. Just an FYI.

    @SlimJim005 - The most recent class profile breaks out the SAT ranges for those attending from in-state versus out of state. Not sure how these numbers compare to the accepted student ranges.
