    CarolinaMom,

    So far, nobody on this board has been unable to get their PID or to connect with the cashier--right? Is there anybody who CAN'T do either of these things out there?
  • ElizabethtownElizabethtown Registered User Posts: 48 Junior Member
    Hey ya'll. Once you get your PID, do you show up in student directory? I do. I'm guessing that getting the PID puts you in the directory.
  • gastudentgastudent Registered User Posts: 41 Junior Member
    i am there too. i have been in the directory for months? but no letter, no email inviting me to a chat and no contact at all since the mid year grades.

    i know you guys are going to get mad but don't you really think this is not a good system? other schools simply don't give you this kind of "in" to their info. seems sort of "sloppy"?

    ok, that's it. i am calling them today and asking why we are all in the directory and all have pids and all can pay for school but we are not accepted. shouldn't this info be available after decisions, not before?
  • ElizabethtownElizabethtown Registered User Posts: 48 Junior Member
    Ah, come on. We're getting this info because we're mucking around in places we don't belong. And what security breaches have there been? What info have we gotten that we shouldn't have? I doubt it's sloppy security; probably just efficient business to assign everyone a PID when they apply. I'm just gonna log out for a while and wait for a letter--which I'm assuming will be a rejection :)

    Elizabeth, we have five days. maybe just forgetting all of this would be there best. eadad said you get addicted to this instant info and i am starting to see it. i was happier when i did not know as much!
  • ElizabethtownElizabethtown Registered User Posts: 48 Junior Member
    Yup, peace vatownsend. (Your probably just a bit more hyper than me because your chances are better). Good luck! Over and out.
  • vatownsendvatownsend Registered User Posts: 138 Junior Member
    The question now is does everyone have a directory listing? if Elizabethtown, gastudent and i all have our names in the directory, do the rest of you? and why are we already there? fun mystery!

    I don't know what to make of the directory issue. Of all the kids I know that were accepted to UNC, the only one with his name in the directory is a kid that has already sent in his money. Nobody else is in there from EA, not even a Morehead Scholar finalist. I'm surprised that the school said decisions would be posted and then mailed, since there site says just the opposite will happen. I wouldn't stake a lot on the March 31 date. I think they want this over as much as everyone else.

    I'm in directory--no word on acceptance. CarolinaMom did you try the directory after retrieving your PID? Mine didn't show up till after I got PID. I am also in the directory of 2 other colleges that I have not sent in $$ for (although I am accepted in those).
  • CarolinaMomCarolinaMom Registered User Posts: 54 Junior Member
    fuzzyduck - My D has a PID but she is not in the directory. Haven't a clue what/if any of this means anything. My D's close second choice is posting decisions on Sat at 10am and they weren't due until April 1, so I'm hoping Carolina will do something sooner than later.
  • fuzzyduckfuzzyduck Registered User Posts: 40 Junior Member
    Did you submit a FAFSA CarolinaMom? Maybe that's how you get in the directory. I can't imagine that UNC would actually put new admits in the directory before releasing info. Too weird.

    How many others are in directory? How many aren't?
  • Hopeful AuntHopeful Aunt Registered User Posts: 44 Junior Member
    As I said earlier... in 2004 they posted them on March 24th. I suspect and hope they will do the same this year. My guess is the person in the admissions office is told to say nothing will be available until March 31st to all callers. If I am correct - only a few more days.
  • CarolinaMomCarolinaMom Registered User Posts: 54 Junior Member
    fuzzyduck - No, she didn't submit a FAFSA form. I agree, too weird.
    I also agree with Hopeful Aunt - I would really be surprised if they waited until March 31, but I'm sure they can't say otherwise. If I remember correctly, EA started getting notices around the 21st of January.
  • gastudentgastudent Registered User Posts: 41 Junior Member
    i did not do a FAFSA. And I also checked everyone's name that i know and none of the rejected ones from ea or the deferred ones that i know are in the directory. but i am also in the directory of another school like fuzzyduck, I have been accepted but not sent in money? i think this..
    i have been in there for a while and think that maybe the person processing some of the apps did it incorrectly. cause someone on the site posted that they have been accepted and not in the directory.
