Likely Letters for RD

    So wait, which letter exactly are we talking about? Mine begins "I write this morning to thank you for your distinguished application (so on so forth)...While offers of admission will not be mailed until late March, we believe you are an outstanding candidate--the kind of student who will contribute to our community and make full and creative use..." whatever. So this letter means that I actually got into UNC-Chapel Hill (if I don't fail or get arrested or whatever)??

    If so, that is sooooo exciting!

    Any idea of how many people get these letters? I'm sure the majority of accepted students don't, but I'm curious.

  • atomicradishatomicradish Registered User Posts: 61 Junior Member
    I didn't get a likely letter because I didn't cure cancer.

    I only took every AP class my schedule would possibly allow. I skipped all the prerequisite classes possible to do so also. Don't know what the heck they're looking for.

    I'm not worried though.

    I didn't cure cancer...I'm really not that special and quite frankly I'd be surprised if an Ivy admitted me...likely letter does not equal superstar
  • heathergeeheathergee Registered User Posts: 473 Member
    I'm definitely NOT a superstar and got a likely letter...I mean my grades are good and my ECs are decent but I don't have anything too out of the ordinary, or so I thought anyway.
