Guys ... Need a small clarification regarding Recommendations .. Will the adcom send a list of questions to the recommender or will they just ask the recommender to give a recommendation (i.e., an essay types) ?

Many of the popular rankings do not put Mendoza on top 20 but in non-profits its amongst the top 10.
Can anyone share some insigh on this?
I am primarily interested in the Non-profit center at Mendoza. How are the placemets for students looking at a full time non-profits job?

Round 2 for me.
Anyone know if UNC has rolling admissions? As in If I submit early nov, do they pick it up as they get the apps or do they wait for the 2nd round deadlines to open my application ??
