    Competitive North Carolinians have a better chance of being accepted because of the small size of the North Carolina applicant pool. Residency requires living and working independently in the state for one year before matriculation, whether or not the candidate holds student status. Between 15-20 Wake Forest students are accepted into the class of 108 each year. Approximately 50-60% of the class is from North Carolina.
