Just to get a good idea of where I stand when I apply to UNC-CH's ABSN program I have a couple questions, if someone could answer. First, I am graduating with a psych degree, and a child dev. minor with a 3.5 gpa. What is the... Read More

    I'm confused then, because I recently received an acceptance letter to the Jan 2012 cohort....

    That's weird. All I know is that I applied for the summer program but because of the budget cuts they said they would defer my application to the spring and that I would know by April 15 through certified mail. Did you apply for summer but defer to spring?

    Yup, I did. The letter said that the online decision will not be posted until April 15th. I do live in NC, I don't know if you are from out of state. The letter wasn't from certified mail, but it was about a 5x7 size envelope with all UNC stuff and the option reply letter wants me to pick an orientation date (thats not until may) and I need to reply by April 1st. I am just confused because I havent heard anyone who defer to have received a letter (then again I don't know anyone who has applied).

    congratulations then! that's great!
    I live in California, when did you receive the letter?
    I am waitlisted at UCLA and Duke so now all that remains is UNC. I hope I get something soon because the wait is killing me!!! Congrats again!!

    I received it Thursday! The waiting was killing me, but I wasn't expecting to hear from them so soon. I also into Emory's BSN program, but will be declining because of the price tag. Duke told me no (bummer) but at least I got my first choice :-)

    I wish you the best. I really hope you get in!!!!! What school would you choose if all 3 ended working out?

    Thanks- I'm so nervous because everything is in limbo!!!! I'm seriously getting gray hairs everywhere!
    I think my number one would be Duke, then UCLA and UNC would be my last. Duke is super expensive but I loved the campus and the faculty and staff and since my other degrees are from state schools I'm willing to fork out the money.
    It's so funny how schools work and how they chose students. Some people that get into some schools and are obviously qualified don't get into others!
    If you got into UNC, which is one of the top schools in the nation why not Duke? I know a girl that got into Columbia but not UCLA....who the heck knows how they chose people. Then there's me, not accepted and not rejected- it's like I'm almost good enough but not quite. I'm not into sports but now I totally understand "second place is first loser!"

    Oh well I'll keep my fingers crossed. Congrats! So you have orientation in May even if the program doesn't start until January?

    I got accepted to UNC as well!! Got my letter this past Friday; the postmark was March 14, I believe. I live in NC also... I think, ocennia, that maybe since you're out of state it will take longer for the letter to reach you, as someone else said. I'm anxious for you!

    Oh also, I applied for this May but chose to defer, so maybe it's possible they're just getting decisions cranked out as soon as possible and told us April 15th to give them and applicants some leeway with time.

    Amisadai, what pre-orientation date did you pick? Congrats, by the way!

    Ocennia: don't think that! I'm pretty competitive so I usually live by that same "second is first loser" rule, but I've come to realize that that just isn't true. There are so many applicants and so many different credentials to each of us... I totally understand how you feel about how admissions boards choose people too. All the things I heard about what Carolina wanted in its applicants were apparently untrue, because I fit almost none of them! :P

    Remember, waitlisted folks have it easier than people who were utterly turned down, anyway!

    thanks for the words of encouragement! Hopefully I'll be seeing you in January!
