DeAnza does have the stats class - it's listed as Math 10.

It seems that DeAnza and Foothill only have the math class and not the stats class.

For all those looking to complete the stats waiver, it will be much cheaper to do it from a local community college. For people in South Bay, there is DeAnza and Foothill College. I did mine at foothill College. The course was pretty easy going and I only had to go for 2.5 months and I paid around 200 in all for the course, book and parking. This is much cheaper if you are considering the UCB extension online course which costs around 800.

Btw, if you're planning on enrolling, you better hurry because the spring quarter begins next week.

It's an intensive course from around 9 to 5 or 6 on Sat for 6 weeks. I'm not sure even osmosis works towards the end of the second half of the day. :) But it is only a pass/fail course.

An online version is also being offered in June, probably more for final rounders.

Looks like Haas has a very long wait list. There were 57 waitlisters in the chat today including 5 from Adcom. so at least 52. I wonder there could be as many as 80 - 100 waitlist applicants just after R2 :(.

Looks like chances are minimal

57 people in the chat room, 5 adcom members. 52 people on the waitlist

This chat has been very disappointing. I'm sick of hearing that gaining admission is not about a spot becoming available.............

Everyone knows that most admissions come from R1 and R2- and either way they should have sampled a large enough number of the applicants to be able to make a comparison.

Everything I have heard from adcom states that the EWMBA admission process is not like the Full-Time admission process. The EWMBA program does not fill the majority of seats in R1 and R2 with the intention of rounding out the class in R3 like most full-time programs. I've been told that there is a proportionate number of seats available per round (i'm assuming R4 may be an exception as it was recently added).

I would agree in that, why add a Round 4, if all Round 3 was about was rounding out the class? All speculation, but I'm assuming that if you look at this small sample of applicants on this forum, I believe the admission rate is in line with the application rates per round.

Everything i have heard from students in the classroom points otherwise. Anyway- all of this is mere speculation. Not much i can do but wait.

R3 applicant here. Submitted evening of 3/15 and received invite to interview today. Status changed directly from "Received" to "Invited to Interview."

On a separate note, Courtney Chandler, one of the admissions directors, confirmed during an infosession that the reason they waitlist so many applicants is precisely to make R1, R2, and R3 equally competitive. With that in mind, it seems like it would make sense that many applicants are admitted in R3/R4 since many R1/R2 WL applicants and R3/R4 applicants are all admitted together.

My theory is that they waitlist most of the candidates from the demographic and job function (fyi - no prizes for guessing) that is overly represented in the bay area. I remember one of the admissions officer saying that ave GMAT score for this group was upward of 740. The adcom must find it challenging to stitch a diverse class under such circumstances and hence wait until the final application is received before taking a holistic view. imho.

Round 2 admitted applicants,
is your KROLL verification complete? I paid the fees and submitted the authorization on Monday this week, but haven't heard back yet.
Does KROLL inform us or it is the admissions office when the verification is complete?

I hear that the weekend cohorts have more than half their classes held at a technology center at Santa clara instead of the Berkeley campus? Does anyone have insights into this? does not having classes on campus impact the overall experience in any way by not getting opportunities to be more active with clubs and other events on campus?
Also for campus recruiting, are EWMBA students disadvantaged in any way compared to full time students by being mandated to mentioned part time MBA on their resumes when using career center services?

Same here. It's been some time. I was under the impression this process would be complete in 72 hrs.

My friends in full time programs at Haas and UCLA recommended going full time vs part-time. They say it's takes quite a bit of time to attend all the networking functions the schools and companies set-up. They did mention if you know where you want to go after and have the networks already setup then part-time should be no problem. They also did say companies rate full time students higher than part-time students if applying for the same job. Not sure why?

For the pre req waiver exams, has anybody out there tried brushing up on math and statistics using khan academy? spending $1000 on the online extension class is a pain, esp considering i am a R3 applicant and might get dinged anyway. Any thoughts?

A number of us are taking online courses through community colleges, which are a little more affordable.
