Update on First-Deadline Decisions

With nine days to go before our first notification date, we write to thank all of the 14,000 first-deadline candidates who honored Carolina by applying for admission. Over the last three months, as we’ve read your applications one by one and over and over again, we’ve been steadily impressed by your achievements and your potential. We have also been humbled by your patience. You have borne this long wait with grace and good humor, and we are grateful.

We expect to finish on time our evaluations of first-deadline candidates whose applications are complete. If you applied first deadline and your application is complete, we plan to post your decision on MyUNC on or around January 21, 2011. We expect letters to arrive by mail at around the same time or shortly thereafter.

For further updates, including detailed instructions about how you may view your decision when it is available through MyUNC, please visit this blog again next week. If you wish to be notified whenever we update the blog, please subscribe by entering your email address at right.

Again, thanks to all who’ve applied – not only for your interest, but also for your patience.
