UNC Transfer Waitlist 2019

srb2000srb2000 110 replies4 threads 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.

    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. 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.

    @hbh2017 How did you get all A's but get a 3.6? Or is that high school GPA?

    @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.

    Hi guys! So I was actually denied, but I was just wondering if anyone was planning on appealing their decision? I have a pretty good idea of what went wrong in my application. I got an awful grade in a class last year that killed my gpa, but am currently retaking the course and have an A. My prof is going to write a letter of recommendation for me and I'll probably ask another prof to do the same
