    i would say if you do well on the essays you will be a very strong OSS candidate. Good luck.
    Just curious, Why carolina?

    thanks! ya... luckily my english teacher works a lot with us on our essays so i'm hoping *fingers-crossed* that i write a few good ones.
    Atlmom- i actually have family in virginia and have visited before so i've been to north carolina. i also like that it's different from california. plus unc is a very nice school in a nice location! :)

    elltwo, I'd like you to know that my s thought he really wanted to go to UNC but after visiting decided it wasn't for him. You should visit!
  • ELLTWOELLTWO Registered User Posts: 47 Junior Member
