Final Waitlist Update

We've now released final decisions for all students remaining on the first-year and transfer waiting lists, so all students can now view these decisions on MyUNC. In all, we offered admission to about 200 students from the first-year waiting list this year--about 70 North Carolina students and 130 out-of-state students. From the transfer waiting list, we were able to admit about 65 students.

We know how difficult it can be to receive this news, particularly after you've waited so long for a final decision from us. You are outstanding students and we wish that we had room for you here. We wish you the very best of luck at your chosen school--we know that you will do extraordinary things wherever you go.

About 100 of our waitlisted first-year students are being offered the chance to participate in a sophomore-guarantee program. If you are chosen for this program, you will receive a letter in the mail within the next 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 2013, 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 year. Please let us know if you have any questions.
