I haven't. I'm under no illusions about being accepted, but I was hoping they'd throw me a courtesy interview since I've suffered through 4 years of undergrad here :p. A buddy of mine who is extremely well qualified from a different school hasn't heard anything either, so it's possible they just haven't invited anyone yet.

I submitted everything way early, but it did seem take them an inordinate amount of time to let me know they had my app- about a month.

I did receive an email saying my application for UNC was complete, and a friend that's a P1 there did say they interview extremely late; starting in December and ending almost in March. She had already paid a deposit at another school by the time she heard back, but obviously, she decided on UNC.

Good luck to everyone! :)

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.

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!

I didn't think it mattered when you send in your application because they don't start looking until November 1 (not rolling).

Congrats on those with invites so far!

I havent gotten an interview invitation yet, i submitted the supp. app. as early as it was made available, before I even submitted my pharmcas. I know my pharmcas wasnt submitted in the 'first tier' or w/e... my guess is that the people who have gotten interview invites were in the first pharmcas submission pool

From my experience last year, I think they don't give interview invites until close to the actual interview date. So you won't get an invite far in advance. This makes it a little hard for those coming form out of state. You only get one date (don't get a choice) and if you can't make it you go back into the interview pool.

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 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.

I completely agree. Oh well, I'm still waiting anxiously for my invite :)

I received my interview invite yesterday afternoon. I called to confirm this morning and they told me that the interview is this Friday 11/19 from 12-3pm. Pretty short notice, but luckily I'm only an hour and a half from the campus and will be able to skip a couple of my classes to attend. I submitted my PharmCAS application on October 1, and it was received on November 1. I submitted my supplemental application on around 10/22 or so.

It will be January, but they have not decided on a date yet.

I was invited to interview this past Friday, but I had a previous interview to attend to on the same day, so I called them to defer the date. They said that they would e-mail me when they figure out the date.

Well, the magic date some of us that interviewed on November 19th may hear might very well be December 9th. The reasoning behind this results from reading through threads of UNC applicants from previous years. In the past, some students heard two Thursdays after the interview, but in this case the first Thursday was Thanksgiving. If you don't hear on Dec. 9th don't get nervous, because you could still get accepted the same day as the batch of students from the next interview round will, and so on and so forth (as many have in the past). In addition, I have heard of students getting accepted on other days of the week, so as a disclaimer I am just stating there is only a higher probability of getting accepted from the Nov. 19th interview session on December 9th (or maybe even December 2nd, but highly unlikely). Some students also didn't hear for months, so keep your heads up.

Hi, Do you mind telling me your GPA and pcat score? I have not heard from UNC yet and am worried. Also when did you take your pcat? and yes, what did you decide? what school are you picking? Thank You.

redmuskan, do not be worried. They haven't made decisions on the students that interviewed Nov 19th, or at least haven't sent out notifications (maybe with the exception of Mjuehl3, with the claim of getting accepted on Nov 22), because this thread would probably be indicative of such with at least several claims of joyful acceptances. With that being said, I highly doubt they will send out invitations for the next interview round until they make as many sound decisions on whom they want to accept from the first round based on the information they currently have about the students interviewed (as in before academic updates etc). Therefore, with holidays and all, I doubt the next interview will be in December, so relax. They also do interviews all the way through March I believe. Just check this forum to see if anyone else has been invited.

I'll echo pharma483, from what I know they've only sent out one batch of interviews for the Nov. 19th date and they are most likely waiting to send out more interviews until they solidify upcoming dates. From the sound of it, the next interviews will be in January and based on the week's notice most people got for the 11/19 interview, there's plenty of time.

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.

My friend who interviewed was accepted and received the acceptance email the same day as mjuehl. Just for what it's worth.

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.

Does anyone know how difficult it is to establish residency at UNC for tuition purposes? I have already seen the information on the school website. I am just curious about how likely it is to be considered a resident after your first year.

I interviewed with UNC on Nov. 19th with some of my classmates. One got his acceptance email on the 22, but I'm still pending for a response. My classmates and I go to UNC for undergrad. I think that it should be within this next week to hear word, a PY1 I'm really good friends with told me that everyone last year got their acceptance emails exactly two weeks after the interview. Since we had thanksgiving break I'm pretty sure that it hasn't been a full two weeks. My guess is that the interview group on Nov. 19th will hear back either Wed, Thur, or Fri. Hope this helps!! I'll be crossing my fingers....

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.

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:

http://www.chapelhillrent.com/site/search/results?page_size=25&page_number=1

A lot of the really cool houses are passed down through groups of friends. I know there are some pharmacy houses scattered around, so definitely make friends with P3s/P4s who will be vacating soon.

Hope this helps.

Last year they told us they accepted people in "cycles." So they would evaluate everybody in December and then pick a bunch to accept and everyone one else was put back into the pool and evaluated at the next cycle. We weren't told when the cycles were exactly but that there was a december one, a january one, etc. No specifically one per month but just every so often they would send out acceptance in cycles. Last year they said that we would hear final results by mid-march but they were late and the final results came in mid-april (I think). So if you are still waiting, it could be a long time but then again it might not. For the EC campus, they actually call you and you have to call them to tell them your reply. So you might want to check your voicemail/messages every so often.

But that was last year so maybe they might do things differently this year. I just wanted to tell everyone m experience from last year since I was a bit perplexed with the lack of communication. I remember interviewing in December and basically not hearing anything until I called them in march. (They really didn't send many "thank you for your patience we are still evaluating applications" emails) I actually thought they forgot about me at one point.
