UNC Transfer Waitlist 2019

srb2000srb2000 Registered User Posts: 114 Junior Member
Hey, guys! I figured I would get the ball rolling on this thread now that the first round of decisions is out.

I accepted my waitlist offer, and am actually so grateful since my test scores and high school GPA were not the greatest.

    I was waitlisted as well, trying to stay positive about things...just wish there was some way to know if we are the 5th person on the wait list or the 500th

    @unchopeful1999 there is no ranking on the waitlist. They reevaluate all waitlist applicants when space becomes available.

    Right there with ya guys. Let us take this less than 5% chance with dignity.
  • srb2000srb2000 Registered User Posts: 114 Junior Member
    I try not to think of it like a less than 5% chance, more that I'm still a strong enough applicant to not be straight up rejected. I'm just happy to be on the waitlist! And after flipping through last years thread, it made me feel better.

    Is it unusual for a rising junior with a 3.6 gpa from NC community college and in state to get waitlisted? All A's from Fall 2018.

    I got waitlisted. Out of stater who has a lot of legacy (dad, brother, grandma, aunt). 3.25 gpa in first semester.

    I got waitlisted. In state student, rising sophomore, psychology major, high school transcripts sent out (I think I had around a 3.7 unwaited), 26 ACT score, transferring from UNC Wilmington, with 12 credits first semester (2 B+s, 2 As) and 15 credits now 2nd semester with all As,— ECs include chartering a branch of Circle K International (a service based club), VP of community service in RHA Area Council (residents hall association), interviewer for humans of the dub (UNCW version of humans of New York), essays were about my struggle with mental health and why I chose psych as my major, and my recommendation was from the CAIC (campus activities and involvement center) assistant director. I’m honestly very surprised I made the wait list and flattered (although still sad I didn’t get accepted)... good luck guys. Remember, being on the waiting list says a lot of good about you, considering how selective UNC is and if you don’t get accepted you’ll end up somewhere else where you’re SUPPOSED to be. Everything will work out. :) here’s hoping!

    Are there any rising juniors that got waitlisted? If so, could you post your stats.
  • allmightychemistallmightychemist Registered User Posts: 19 Junior Member
    @hbh2017 How did you get all A's but get a 3.6? Or is that high school GPA?
  • allmightychemistallmightychemist Registered User Posts: 19 Junior Member
    @srb2000 2016's statistics show that there were 463 on the waitlist and from them 58 which is about 12%. That is the best year's odds that I have read so far. Hopefully ours would be even higher! Fingers crossed.
  • srb2000srb2000 Registered User Posts: 114 Junior Member
    @allmightychemist Yeah, that was a good year! Fingers crossed as well
  • hbh2017hbh2017 Registered User Posts: 80 Junior Member
    @allmightychemist 3.6 is cumulative For college gpa. 4.0 just for fall semester. So 3.6 for 3 semesters completed so far.
  • allmightychemistallmightychemist Registered User Posts: 19 Junior Member
    @hbh2017 Oh ok. I apologize I forgot about the whole junior status thing. I was considering freshman.
