- 60 out of 300 applicants were accepted. </p>

<p>Thanks! I really appreciate it :)</p>

<p>I think you have a decent shot at UNC. I live in Durham (where Duke is) and I know people that have gotten into UNC with MUCH less than you have. Your extra curriculars look really good (UNC really likes those) and those leadership institutes don't hurt at all. :) Best of luck!</p>

<p>I do not see whether you are in-state or OOS. That will make a big difference with your application decision. If you are in-state you will most likely get in with those stats. If you are OOS, I would say u have a 50% chance. OOS applicants are the unfortunate ones who have to apply with the odds of getting in similar to the IV's. </p>

<p>You also did not mention your rank. Not being in the top 10% of your class hurts your chances. IDK UNC likes to accept students within the 10% class. I guess they want to maintain that kind of reputation.</p>

<p>Pros:
-You have excellent EC's and I agree with carey, your leadership roles play a big role in getting in.
-Grades can be better, but are pretty good
-Taking rigorous courses, so cheers to that
-Nice SAT score if you're in-state</p>

<p>Cons:
-Bad sat score if you're OOS</p>

<p>BTW Carey, I'm from durham too!! I applied to UNC Chapel Hill EA!</p>

<p>Thank you, careyberry!
I'm an OOS student, and I'm in the top 8% of my class. I also applied EA!</p>

<p>I applied EA too! UNC-CH is crazy early.
@gms2010gms Yay for people from Durham who apply to UNC! So many of my friends aren't applying to UNC because it's "too close" but they're applying to Duke. I just don't get it. :)</p>
