Application Update -- Updated December 15

To all of our applicants, we thank you for your patience while we continue to carefully review our mail and attach all of your supplemental materials to your applications. We write today to give you an update on our progress.

As of yesterday at 5 p.m., we have reviewed 99 percent of our 14,000 first-deadline applications for completeness and we have forwarded nearly 12,000 applications to our admissions committee to be read. We are enjoying reading your applications and getting to know you.

If your missing items were sent to us on or after December 7, there is no need to send them again or call about them at this time. If the missing items were sent to us before December 7, we apologize that we must ask you to send them to us again. However, if you sent your missing items through Naviance, Docufide or CFNC, and your To-Do still shows these items as missing, please contact us and we will assist you.

If we have not received your missing items by December 23, 2010, the admissions committee will review your application on the basis of the information that is available and may, at its discretion, either deny your application for admission or withdraw your application from further consideration.

Please remember that school transcripts must be official copies received through electronic transmission or by mail; all other items may be emailed to or faxed to (919) 843-2326. Please be sure all correspondence includes your full name and your birth date.

For the latest on your application status, please continue to check MyUNC and this blog.

We appreciate your interest in us and your diligence in preparing and submitting your applications. We also appreciate your patience during this busy time. As a reminder, we plan to post decisions for first-deadline candidates with completed applications on MyUNC on January 21, 2011, with paper letters landing about the same time or shortly thereafter.

If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact us. You may email or call us at (919) 966-3621.
