    What other schools were you considering, and what made you choose UNC?

    Also, how do you feel about your dorm? Did you get your first pick?

    @snapslater I'd be shocked if you were denied. You're basically guaranteed to get in, as long as your essays are good. (Going to a early/middle college looks amazing to admissions officers. I have a friend who did that and is going to Caltech.) Do not rest on your laurels, though. Just keep working hard, and you'll likely be accepted.

    @Hopeso1 thank you so much! I had many people review my essays. For my 2 short essays, I picked the "what do you think will be the most important innovation in the next 10 years" (I'm paraphrasing) and I wrote about cheap renewable energy, and the second one I picked the "what are your goals for the next 10 days, 10 months, 10 years?" and I talked a lot about my education and goals to be a doctor. I had a lot of people tell me they were great. I have also read my recommendation letters (after I sent out my application) and they were good. I am just very anxious :(

    I guess I'll ask one more question. What were your stats like?

    What is the food like? Probably an irrelevant question but food is the love of my life hahahaha. @johonmilla I think he answered that on the first page.
