The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill has offered admission to the fall 2011 entering class to 5,104 candidates who applied by the first of two admission deadlines. The admitted students were chosen from a record first-deadline pool of 14,018 – an increase of 7 percent over last year.

"The students we’ve admitted are terrific, and we’re honored by their interest in Carolina,” said Stephen Farmer, associate provost and director of undergraduate admissions. “It was a privilege for us to get to know these students through their applications – to learn about their achievements and to dream about their potential. We think these students will do great things here at Carolina and far beyond. We look forward to welcoming them next fall.”
