    @Essel My S18 also at NCSU. He knew UNC was a reach and didn’t expect to get in. He was top 15% so that hurt him. He loves NCSU! My D20 will be applying to both schools.

    @essel I'm OSS, but do you mind me asking what your twins' scores were. Their GPAs and Class Rank were strong. Thanks.

    I heard from a friend that decisions were supposed to come out yesterday, which obviously didn't happen. I know that the UNC website says near the end of January, but does anyone have an actual approximate date?

    @Jordynklongland ACT seems a little low for OOS, but no one on this board is an AO for UNC Chapel Hill. Look at the numbers on UNC's website for OOS, and you can chance yourself as well as anyone here.

    @sliu412 That is true, how do you think that will impact the EA acceptance rate?

    @sarajayhawk Very good chance IMO. I don’t know how many applicants they get who are from Kansas, and also URM, 1st Gen, and First in their class. I hope you hear good news soon! With all that said, keep in mind I don’t work in Admissions.

    I'm so nervous! I've been looking at the admission statistics and I think I meet a lot of them but still, its hit or miss with UNC. Its been my dream school ever since I was a child and to have that life long dream either continue or come to an end next week is really freaking me out? Is this just me?
