Hi,

Does anyone know in this forum what Transition of status from File Recieved to "File under review" means ? Myself applied in R4. I expected to recieve an interview invite, but if status goes to file under review does this mean R4 applicants might not be interviewed and the decision will be posted directly ?

Thanks,
Sri


I received notification that my file went under review 1 day before receiving an interview invite. I believe others received an invite a week or so after the change. With four weeks left until the deadline, they will probably continue to interview until a week prior.

Hmm..they waived the requirement for math/stats for me!

I was all set to take the stats test on 18th: had my flight tickets done for Berkeley, had bought the stats book, and was all set to cramp for two weeks. Time to check if I can get refund or credit on the flight tickets.

This is what my status shows at the end.

Prerequisite Courses:
College-level Mathematics: Complete
Statistics: Complete

Nice little surprise there!!!


Nice! What do you think lead them to that conclusion? Was it a stats related course within the last 5 years? Or significant work experience?

Guys,

I got my interview call last week. I have a 30 min interview scheduled with Britta Narum.

Is this going to be a blind interview with just the resume or will the interviewer have prior knowledge of my whole application packet and might ask any question related to it?

Does any one have any experience with Ms. Narum as an interviewer. I did see one or two comments about her in this post previously but wanted to know of any recent experiences.

Also, I see some candidates had 1 hour interviews. Does the difference in the time slot mean any thing.

Thanks!

The interviewer will only have seen your resume. I think the vast majority of interviews are 30 minutes so I wouldn't be worried about the time. I'm guessing the 1 hour interviews may have gone over?

Hi,
I received UC Davis admission letter today. I have untl the 12th of May to accept it. Since I haven't heard from HAAS (& it being my first choice), I'm wondering if I should let UC Berkeley know my situation but I'm afraid of any negative impact it may hav on my app. Any suggestions or recommendations would be appreciated.
Thanks.


I asked the adcom this same exact question a few months ago. They will look at your application individually and can give you an early decision if you provide them proof of your admission to UC Davis. I suggest contacting them asap.



Thanks. I've contacted HAAS about getting an early decision. Keeping fingers crossed.



Did you hear back from Haas. How much time do they take to review your application individually

No, I have not heard back from HAAS yet. I think they should get back to me next week though. I would think it takes them no more than a week or 10 days to review your application amidst all other applications..

Anyone in a similar situation (acceptance from UC Davis and waiting for HAAS' reply)? Have you heard anything from HAAS?

Hi, I'm a 3rd round applicant. I also registered a stats exam on 18th. However, today I checked my application status, it also shows that both my Prerequisite Courses are complete. Does that mean I don't have to take the exam? Since I've never taken any statistic course before, I'm a little worried that it's just a system glitch... Please advice.. Thanks

My math requirements were also updated recently. It states my math pre-req is complete with statistics showing as incomplete. Unfortunately I don't expect to hear the admission results until we get closer to the deadline and I don't believe I can sign-up for the statistics course/waiver unless admitted (please correct me if I'm wrong as it sounds like I may have the wrong info).

As for your question, it's up to you if you don't feel your knowledge with Statistics is up to snuff. If your app says you're complete, I would assume you're good to go.

Thanks for the tip! As it's already the 8th and I haven't taken a stats class since 2002, I'll probably have to take the stats course offering on campus in June if I'm admitted.

Just for curiousities sake, do all prospective students (even those not admitted) have the math requirements updated before getting their admit/deny/waitlist results? I'm trying to see if I should look positively on the update :).

I have to be out of country for three weeks (May 28-June 15) due to a personal matter and unfortunately I can not change the timing. Since decisions are made during the last few days of May, I'm wondering what the best approach should be in case I get admitted. Do I have certain time-frame within which I have to accept the offer? Is any deposit required?
Any help / suggestion would be appreciated.

Same thing here... my prereqs were updated online: stats incomplete, math complete. I'm not sure it means anything, other than knowing the fact that the adcom has already reviewed my file and maybe even made a decision already. I'm not getting my hopes up...yet.

Any R1/R2 folks remember the timing of if/when your prereq status was updated before your admit/ding?

@chicagomba... I have the same question as you do...Folks from R1/R2 or even R3..please tell us when your Pre-reqs were updated ?

Also, have another question, Incase we get dinged, does Haas reveal the decision before June 1st ?

R1 WL here. The pre-reqs getting updates has no correlation with your chances of admission. The adcom quickly looks at your GMAT quant score and whether you took a stats course in the past 5 yrs to update your pre-req. It is likely for this to happen before your interview.

I don't expect haas to announce results either way before the June 1st deadline.

Hi guys,

I'll take the statistics waiver exam soon, but not sure what kind of calculator I can use during the test. Will the scientific calculator be allowed to use during the test? Or I have to buy a basic one? :roll:
Many thanks,

***PLEASE READ IF YOUR MATHS/STATS REQUIREMENTS ARE LISTED AS COMPLETE ****

So as you know the math and stats waiver in my case were listed as complete. However, I decided to check with the office if that was indeed the case and I didn't have to take the waiver exams. The answer I got was that there is indeed a mistake and that my stats requirement are incomplete and I would have to take the stats waiver exam or take a stats course. Please check with the admissions office if you are in a similar situation. Now I am regretting slacking off on the stats prep and not checking with the admissions office earlier. The waiver exam is on 18th but I have decided to cancel it, and take the exam/course in June.

2 more weeks to go! I somehow feel being waitlisted after June 1st could be the worst outcome for me....may be not :)

Has anybody heard a decision in last 2/3 weeks. Lets keep the spirits up by posting any updates as we go through these very long days ahead of us!

I also got a status update on prerequisites ---Math-complete, Stats-Incomplete.

Same here. I got the same status update.. Based on the FB update, it seems like there are 4-5 new members in the last 2 weeks. I was told that they'll notify everyone only in the last two days.. Good luck everyone.
