    Yes. You can ask them directly. That's what we did and my son is currently a freshman. Not really a big deal unless you want to attend their summer travel programs in the summer (DS chose the London trip and loved it) or one of the on campus summer programs. Originally wanted the premed program but it filled up fast so I'd move quickly if Chapel Hill is your first choice.

    i wish i could afford unc (oos)... but will most likely attend uva! ugh i wish finance didn't play such a huge role in me choosing which college to attend, since I would probably attend unc for its research opportunities to help for my medical aspirations.

    Granville is popular mostly with students interested in Frats/Sororities because of its proximity to those houses/parties. It is also a shorter walk to class. It's a nice, private dorm with good food! My son did not stay there, because he was not as interested in Frats, but enjoyed eating with friends there when he was invited.

    @akacollege23 UVA is an amazing school as well! Otherwise you could always start out at your community college and then come in as a transfer student, that’s what I’m doing and it’s saved me a ton of money!

    @transferluk thanks!! i'm more than happy to attend uva!! just wondering though, could you tell me how the experience was as a transfer student? I've never considered/knew that was an option.
  • transferluktransferluk Registered User Posts: 42 Junior Member
    @akacollege23 I’ve just applied to transfer in the fall so I won’t know until then, but it seems to me that transfer students fit in well and are an important part of the community there!
