    OOS state here, definitely not super confident about my chances, but I'm also a Morehead nominee so my fingers are definitely crossed!!
  • stuckinthefuturestuckinthefuture Registered User Posts: 105 Junior Member
    Congrats on the Morehead nomination! I'm also OOS and my school isn't on the Morehead list so I had to self-nominate but I am anxious for January!

    Hey all, current OOS first year student here and I am loving every part of UNC! I didn’t get past the finalist stage of Morehead applications last year but did recieve a full ride under the Carolina Scholarship so, for anyone applying, there are always other opportunities regardless of what happens! Good luck to everyone. It’s a stressful process indeed but will be over soon and you’ll find the perfect college for you, which is hopefully as a part of UNC 2023 :)

    @Pastpower Congrats on the Carolina Scholarship and thanks for the reassurance! I was actually wondering how the Carolina Scholars program works, I read the website but it doesn't seem to say much about how you are chosen. Are you notified by the school after you receive your acceptance letter and are there more rounds? The site says "Fewer than 6 percent of students earn a place in the UNC Scholars program". If you don't mind me asking, what do you think stood out about your application? Sorry for all the questions ;)
  • PastpowerPastpower Registered User Posts: 380 Member
    @stuckinthefuture Absolutely no problem! If you receive a scholarship of any kind, you are notified shortly after your acceptance letter, that following week I believe. There are no rounds to it, the scholarship is yours if selected. Although I don’t know exactly what stood out, I made sure to spend extra time nailing the supplemental app down since I know UNC places much more emphasis on that aspect of the application and in their activities section I wrote a single essay about the impact I had serving with an organization.

    Current instate applicant. I'm glad that the application stage is over, I was definitely getting anxious as I was finalizing everything. Hopefully we'll all get the acceptance letter at the end of January.
  • stuckinthefuturestuckinthefuture Registered User Posts: 105 Junior Member
    @Pastpower Awesome, thanks for the tips! @saadnc I completely agree! I hope so too :)

    @edomexchs congrats on Morehead Cain nomination! I'm also an OOS nominee too and i'm honestly p nervous about it
  • sliu412sliu412 Registered User Posts: 116 Junior Member
    Out-of-state applicant here! Super nervous about everything especially since UNC is one of my top choices!
  • florida2001florida2001 Registered User Posts: 23 Junior Member
    I’m also out of state and super nervous about how that will affect my application. I know that I look good on paper but probably not good enough, especially because of the competition at my high school.
  • nystudent37nystudent37 Registered User Posts: 26 Junior Member
    I'm also an OOS applicant and nervous about my chances. Don't know if my stats are good enough, I know OOS is capped at 18%. I debated on finalist team at the National High School Ethics Bowl at UNC I hope that will help my app.

    In state. Decent stats. Match. Nervous.
  • johnander123johnander123 Registered User Posts: 27 Junior Member
    @ArWrFe what are your stats? I just want to know what decent is for UNC
  • ArWrFeArWrFe Registered User Posts: 12 New Member
    @johnander123
    GPA 3.8UW, ACT 35 ... but Wake County
  • solemnswearsolemnswear Registered User Posts: 27 Junior Member
    @ArWrFe I have nearly the exact same stats as you, from Wake county as well, if it's any consolation. I was thinking that my chances would be around high reach to low match simply because I'm not in the top 10% of my class
