    I really admire the fact that you worked full time during your undergrad years while still figuring out how to give back to the college community by being an active member of 3 student organizations and holding down leadership roles in two of them. And I also admire your tenacity in having to pay for college yourself yet still stick with it over a six-year grind. If you are working at a “top firm” in accounting, I am going to assume it’s one of the majors like PWC, EY, Deloitte or KPMG. That’s solid, too. I think you should get an interview with UNC and unless you totally blow it, you should get an admit, too.
