I recognize most of my answers will come from talking directly with admissions people from UNC, but seeing as how I have to wait before my grades come back anyway, I figured I'd see what yall had to say.
I just finished my first semester at university of missouri kansas city (T3). I feel good about it, and I have only gotten one final grade back so far but it was an A, and I am pretty confident on my other courses as well.
I am looking to move back to NC, and UNC is the most economical and most prestigious school (Duke is simply out of the question, too much $$$ and a definite long shot). UNC only accepted 7 students last year but 1) they dont accept transfer students from NC universities and 2) priority goes to NC residents attending out of state schools like myself.
Granted there are a lot of ifs, but assuming I do finish in the top 10 or 15 percent (big assumption!) - is going through the transfer application even worth it? How hard would this transfer be?
