What if I was waitlisted??

I was so sad yesterday knowing that I was waitlisted for UNC economics major. I am OOS + international transfer. IS there any hope...

    Last year less than 5 people made it off the waitlist, so I am not holding my breath. The only thing I read that you can do, is submit your end of year grades.

    According to the 2015-2016 Common Data Set, 3144 students were offered a place on the wait list, 1513 accepted a place on the wait list and 78 were admitted. Not sure of the OOS/instate/international breakdown.

    My post was specifically referring to transfer students. Directly from UNC, in 2015 less than 5 people made it off the waitlist and only 8 in 2014. I am sure the number differs for First Year students.

    ^ Sorry, I missed the fact that this is a transfer student. My post was for First Year students which does not apply here.
