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,
H

***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.

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?


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

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


I am actually in a similar situation. I expect to hear from them within the next week or so.


Did you hear anything from HAAS? I have not.

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.

They actually did call me yesterday, but only to say that there is no new news they can give me. I think they only expedite it if your admission decision is clear one way or the other. So in the mean time I will probably just accept another school until I hear from them again.

This is a bit late for those taking the waiver exam tomorrow, but for those taking it at a later date, you can watch webcasts of statistics lectures on webcast dot berkeley dot edu (this forum won't let me post a web address until I've been registered for five days)

Then select the statistics department. most webcasts are just audio, but a some are video. I recommend this one:
Statistics 21, 001 - Spring 2010
Introductory Probability and Statistics for Business
FLETCHER H IBSER

These can also be downloaded through iTunes too.

Good luck to everyone taking the test tomorrow!

Any idea/guesses what the available seats vs. applicant ratio must be at this point. Considering there are almost 100 seats remaining and may be 80 people already in-queue from round 1 & round 2 waitlist; also not sure how many applicants are in third and fourth rounds, just trying to quantify the chances...

Apparently third round admits are already being issued. Just saw the roll on first page of this forum. Could others admitted recently update here. But offcourse there are bunch of us still waiting and hopefully this is the last week of wait.

Yes, i called them yesterday and they told me that everyone, absolutely everyone will find out on June 1. I am guessing only if someone does not accept they may offer a few afterwards. So atleast the "Wait" will be over.
I am sure everyone is going through the same anticipation anxiety.
Best of luck

Sorry for the false alarm on the roll page - that was me. Must have clicked on things too quickly when I was updating my profile last week.

Good luck everyone!

Are there any R4 applicants in this forum? If so, did any of you see updates on the your prerequisites recently?
I still see them blank. Since it is about a week from the decision date, I am now starting to wonder if my file has been touched or not!!
