Correlation(submission_date, interview_invite_date) = 0.0000000


Then:
Correlation(interview_invite_date,admission_result_is_positive)=X

Please solve for X

The longest day in my life, and I still have the FOMC to go...

The hypergeometric distribution describes the probability that in a sample of n distinctive objects drawn from the application exactly k objects are denied. In general, if a random variable X follows the hypergeometric distribution with parameters N, m and n, then the probability of getting exactly k successes is given by

f(k;N,m,n) = {{{m \choose k} {{N-m} \choose {n-k}}}\over {N \choose n}}.

The probability is positive when k is between max(0, n+m−N) and min{m, n).

The formula can be understood as follows: There are \tbinom{N}{n} possible samples (without replacement). There are \tbinom{m}{k} ways to obtain k defective objects and there are \tbinom{N-m}{n-k} ways to fill out the rest of the sample with non-defective objects.

The fact that the sum of the probabilities, as k runs through the range of possible values, is equal to 1, is essentially Vandermonde's identity from combinatorics.

Duh.

Rhyme looking at last years thread is keeping me sane at this point. You didn't get an invite for what a week or so? That just shows that timing isn't everything. 14 days to go.

yea, looking at the invites and acceptances you see there is no correlation to when you get the invite.

At the BW forum 3 got interviews...

What a tough day, I did not have idea how was hard to play this game, perhaps it's easier to play the game which you have no clue when they may call you... Perhaps I'm just too anxious :lol:
