yeah its just when you have to get your application in by- there's no separate app. but i just don't know if that means it needs to be just transmitted or actually complete/UR?

also i know a girl with 3.5/164 who got the chancellors, she had good recs and i think 2 or 3 yrs of work experience. i know they interview finalists, but im not sure how many they award. also, i heard that if you're a finalist and don't get it you still get a significant scholarship. anyone know if thats true?


If I received the 15,000 annual scholarship, does that mean that a Chancellors interview is off the table?


Hey everyone, I'm a 3L at UNC. Feel free to ask me any questions you might have about the application process or life at UNC.

First, I'm sorry to hear some of your scholarship offers have been slightly disappointing. The law school has had some budget cuts that affect how much aid it can give, which stinks but there are two things to keep in mind 1) you can apply to get in-state tuition after you have lived in North Carolina for 12 continuous months (https://registrar.unc.edu/academic-serv ... ncy-guide/) and 2) you can negotiate your scholarship offer

I can't give specific numbers about the amount of my scholly, but I was able to negotiate for a $3,000 a year increase in my amount. I sent them my offer from a similarly ranked school that offered me a higher scholarship and it worked. The admissions told me they weren't sure if they were going to have the funds to make an increase but about two weeks after I requested it they increased my scholarship. My advice would be to reach out sooner, rather than later. Even if they tell you they can't currently make any adjustments, it is good to get on their radar and they can tell you when to follow up.

To answer the above question, if you got a $15,000 a year scholarship, that does not preclude you from getting an invite to interview for Chancellors. I believe they send out invites sometime in late January or early February. Though I believe those who received invites had offers of $17,500, but I am not positive.

If you have any questions, feel free to PM me

Is anyone else's application moving really slowly? I applied before Christmas and it still hasn't been marked complete yet.

Hi there. I just applied to UNC a couple days ago and never received an automatic email from them like I have with other schools. Did it take a while for anyone else to receive a status checker?

Yes. Same situation, except idk if you had to send a supplemental app/NC residency app. Both of which I've sent in and they have yet to confirm they've received it... but I've heard they're always slow so i don't think it means much tbh

Also, does anyone have any knowledge about what UNC looks for in assessing applicants for the Chancellor’s? I’ve read on previous threads that the determinations are much more holistic? Does that mean that an applicant doesn’t necessarily have to be above both 75ths? I’m currently above the 75th for GPA And between 50th and 75th for LSAT.

Has anyone been notified yet? The weekend is coming up soon, and I'm growing more and more anxious that people have been invited and just haven't posted about it.

How did you receive log-in info for a status checker? I haven't even received one...
