Well, I'm glad they're actually calling kids now. I submitted my app in the first round (end of July/beginning of August), but my first PCAT score needed to improve in certain areas, so I guess they'll have to wait 'til my second score arrives. Congrats to your friend, though!My friend got an interview invite this morning... but like I said, he's a near-perfect applicant (already accepted to the other 2 NC schools and with two other interviews scheduled) and got his stuff in at the beginning of August.
I think they could make it easier on the applicant, but it's cheap and prestigious, so the attitude is very much "if you can't make it, there's someone else at least as good waiting to take your spot." Maybe I'm just jaded, but that's how undergrad is.Yeah I feel like it's part of the process. My friend last year told me he didn't get the invite until 1 week before. He was informed Thanksgiving weekend and we're from Florida. It's like "If you really want to go here, you better spend $500 to get here".
I completely agree. Oh well, I'm still waiting anxiously for my inviteI think they could make it easier on the applicant, but it's cheap and prestigious, so the attitude is very much "if you can't make it, there's someone else at least as good waiting to take your spot."

My friend who interviewed was accepted and received the acceptance email the same day as mjuehl. Just for what it's worth.Mjuehl3 posted that here instead of on the Campbell thread. They really got accepted to Campbell not UNC. So as far as we know, no one has heard about an acceptance from UNC yet.
Thanks for that; it does make me feel better!Hey guys,
I'm a current PY1 at UNC and I will tell you that the dates really do range in terms of hearing back from UNC as far as the interview process goes.
Personally, most of my friends that I have made here this first year heard back in the Feb-April range and they were all well qualified students. I received an interview in March and heard back from them after that in about 1-2 weeks time.
Anyway, I just wanted to say, don't fret too much if you haven't heard an back for an interview yet! I think they have interviewed one group the other week as I saw some signs around the school for those interviewing that day, but I want to stress not to worry yourself too much right now if you haven't heard anything yet.
I did the exact same thing last year when December passed...then January, and even February with no word from them, but it all worked out in the end, so don't fret just yet! Good luck to everyone.
In my group I thought that we were told that we would receive that information from student services after being accepted. I hope that is the case because I am from out of state and don't know Chapel Hill at all.Thank you PepeJ.. I wish I would have grabbed an apartment guide while I was in Chapel Hill but I thought that would be too optimistic lol
It's best not to wait to start looking, at least in my experience. This is the site that my roommates and I used to get our apartment after freshman year- it has listings from all the major (reputable) rental agencies in CH:In my group I thought that we were told that we would receive that information from student services after being accepted.
