UNC Class of 2023 EA Discussion Thread

The website said they stopped offering deferred status to EA applicants because they receive so many applications for RD and they were able to offer fewer and fewer spots in March to those that were deferred. Instead, they offer EA and RD a chance for waitlist if not rejected or accepted. There is no preference to EA applicants or ranking with waitlist.

Does anyone know more or less what day decisions are released?

@rafagirl2001 - see post #46 above

@michigan2019, yes received the “be patient” letter last week. Some verbiage that 40+% of children of alumni are admitted, etc.

Did you receive a letter in the mail? Are you from an alumni family? Thanks in advance!

See if the common app has a place for you to do it.

withdraw the application is what previous post goes to answer

both of your stats are good imo but you probably know that. I don’t understand the point of asking people to give their opinions though when at this point it’s out of your hands. you just can’t know what the decision will be. what strangers think about your chances is meaningless. so chill! watch parks and rec and eat ice cream and live a little. what happens will happen, you’ll be okay no matter what.

I’m in the same boat though so maybe I’m just convincing myself :slight_smile:

@abigailgr Probably the best advice I’ve seen on College Confidental all day.

Any idea of when admissions decisions will be released?

Yes it’s January 26th at 12 pm for early action

How do you know this?

“Early Action: Apply by October 15 to get your decision by the end of January.”
https://admissions.unc.edu/apply/deadlines/

@speedyturtle12 that is a very specific date and time and it is a Saturday. Is this EST

Yeah, I want to know where that date comes from when on their website it only says “by the end of January.”
