    @blazinamazin2023 If the schedule follows same as last year, decisions should be released the last Friday of January. This has been the same format in years past.

    @Pastpower Thank you for the info! Do you have any clue why decisions have been released that way?

    @blazinamazin2023 No clue, it’s just what they’ve always rolled with every year.

    Several people have mentioned uploading mid-year grades ONLY if you are deferred. However, I thought UNC doesn’t do deferred anymore for EA applicants. I thought you are either accepted, denied, or waitlisted? Just making sure I’m understanding possible outcomes at end of January.

    Yes, I just double checked the website and they do not defer early action applicants. Either you’re accepted , denied, or waitlisted now. They started doing this because of how many applicants they receive. I guess it is kinder and you move on.

    Any ideas on how no long deferring applicants might impact the EA acceptance rate?

    Realistically, with UNC, a waitlist is really a “no” based on stats....especially for OOS kids. Based on their own graph/stats, over the years, less than 15-20 people have ever made it off the waitlist and onto campus. Most who are accepted seem to attend. They encourage waitlist kids to accept another offer and pay your deposit. You don’t find out if you are off the waitlist until June. Good luck everyone, especially OOS kids. Not many spots and so many apps.

    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.

    @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!
