Student Backgrounds(UNC-CH Computer Science)
UNC ranks at #22 in USNews for computer science, tied with Rice University and Brown University.In recent years, most entering students have averaged in the 90th percentile or higher on each of the three sections. Allowances are made in interpreting the verbal test scores of applicants whose native language is not English. Although GRE Advanced Test scores are not required, applicants are encouraged to take the advanced test in computer science, mathematics, engineering, or physics, as appropriate.
Graduate Admissions Requirements (UNC-CH Computer Science)
Regarding the admission rate:
Regarding tuition costs for those without aid, the cost per semester for a full load (9+ credits) including fees is $10,117 :Congratulations! I am delighted to inform you that we have recommended you for admission to the UNC-Chapel Hill Graduate School. You will hear from them soon. Every year less than 15% of applicants to our Department are actually accepted. Thus, your distinction as a member of this group should be noted with pride.
thegradcafe.com — 2006–2007 Grad School Admission Results
(If a person without aid takes 9 credits, the cost per credit including fees is $1,124. If a person takes 12 credits, the cost per credit is $843.)
BTW, applying a few days late may be okay, though I certainly wouldn't want to be in that position. One guy at TheGradCafe who was accepted for PhD admission said he applied on January 6th last year.
