And that scholarship 🔥🔥🔥🔥
also off topic, anyone who HASNT gotten a UNC status change? bc mine has not changed and I'm feeling not great about it
@TheURMLawyer: I haven't and I'm also nervousss but I applied mid-nov so idk
same i applied 11/4
I'm so nervous, I went to UNC for undergrad and I will be so sad if I get an R or WL 😭
UNC was the only undergrad school i applied to that didn't accept me. i texted my friends at UNC that they should sneak into the adcom building and hit the accept for all of us
we got thisss!!
UNC fans get absurdly offended if you live in the state of NC and don't care about UNC basketball
every day that passes in admissions i kick myself for not being able to score in the 170s like i did on my PTs and instead being at a low 160 lol i feel like i would have heard back from so many schools by now
@Mountaineer99: i go to one of UNCs rival schools ;) however i do not care about UNC Basketball or Football, i just love to hate on them bc you gotta humble the homies
noooo not the UNC slander😭
im sorry UNC i love you please accept me and give me dirt cheap tuition
HAHA literally the in-state tuition is 🤌
i toured it and it was okay! personally more of a wake fan but that tuition. WHEW its nice
idk UNC fans are annoying and I have beef with someone from Durham so I can support neither school
im just tryinna ride a Duke wave that's all i care about. i just need that ED boost to pull through for me
