Final Waitlist Update

Today we released final decisions for the remainder of the first-year waiting list, so all students should now be able to view these decisions on their MyUNC. In all, we offered admission to about 200 students from the first-year waiting list this year, most of whom were North Carolina students. Unfortunately, we just didn’t have many extra spaces for out-of-state students.

For those of you we were not able to admit, we wish you the very best of luck at your chosen schools. You are outstanding students and we wish that we had room for you here. But we know that you will do extraordinary things wherever you go.

For the third year now, we are offering a small group of our waitlisted first-year students the chance to participate in a sophomore-guarantee program. If you are chosen for this program, you will receive a letter in the mail this week. Read the letter carefully as it explains the program and tells you what you need to do to accept a position. If you do choose to join the program, you will be guaranteed transfer admission for Fall 2012, given you meet the program requirements. Your decision to join this program is not binding, so if you decide you are happy at your chosen school, you are under no obligation whatsoever to transfer to Carolina.

And even if we weren't able to offer you a sophomore guarantee, we hope you'll keep in touch with us if you are interested in transferring to Carolina in the future.

Thank you all for remaining on our waiting list. We are honored by your interest in Carolina, and we wish you a wonderful summer and an exciting first year of college. Please just let us know if you have any questions.
