North Carolina

Extra Curricular Information



note for Elon applicants: I received an email from Elon today (12/11) asking me to resubmit one of my personal statements. Apparently there are some technical problems with the [email protected] mailing address, and so some materials being sent to this address might not have been received. The Dean that contacted me was extremely helpful. I was impressed.

3/6: Notified by mail of $29,000/year scholarship to Elon. Deadline to accept/decline is 3/19.

3/11: Waitlisted at Duke. REALLY suprised to have made it to the waitlist, but I'll take it!!! :)

4/1: Notified by email of $5,000/year scholarship to UNC .

4/10: $15,000/year scholarship to WFU.

4/11: Accepted offer at WFU. Withdrew from Elon and UNC.

note: scholarship information is total amount over three years

Hey, I just wanted to let you know that I got a response from Duke so fast because I was on Priority Track. I'm not sure if you are or not, but I think they send it out based on LSAT scores. Basically it's a fee waiver plus a promise to send a decision quickly after going complete. I hope this helps and good luck on Duke! Also congrats on your acceptances, I wish I had gotten my apps in as early as you did!

Congrats on your Wake acceptance! I got in too and might end up there since I am already in W-S. We have almost the same scores and have applied to all the same schools except Elon. I am waiting on Duke and UNC too. Did you get an email from UNC saying you went complete? I haven't gotten one yet but all my stuff from LSAC was sent there on 11/28.

Allison- I'm not sure what your ID is, so I can't respond to you directly, but hopefully you'll see this post! I did receive an email from UNC on Dec. 4th saying that I went complete. I submitted my UNC app on 10/30, and LSAC says that UNC requested my report on 10/31. Hope this helps! Good luck to you! I'm in W-S right now too, so I'm also leaning towards Wake.

Thanks! On the scholarship letter from Wake, the commitment/deposit date was listed as April 1, 2008, compared to June 15, 2008 from my intial acceptance letter. P.S. I am Allison from the UNC Complete question, and I am finally complete! They just forgot to send me the email back in December . . .
