Looks like my preqs are reviewed now.

Prerequisite Courses:
College-level Mathematics: Complete
Statistics: Incomplete
(if blank, then not yet reviewed.)

I somehow have a feeling that for those whose "College-level Mathematics" is blank (and "Statistics" is reviewed), it may be because of lower Quant. score in GMAT. I think they look at one's GMAT Quant score (among other things) to waive College-level Mathematics. Perhaps, they are still deciding on the cut-off number and hence its blank!

They also look at the text box where they asked you to list any quant courses you've taken and the grades you've gotten to determine if you'll need to take a class or not.

Math shows - Incomplete and Stats shows - Incomplete. I thought i read somewhere that one should have taken Stat / Math related courses in the last 5 years to get the pre-req waived off. It could be interpreted in different ways i guess.

Yes, true. Speculate as much as you can - 9 more days to go for the D-day.
Btw, suchivuk: Any luck with that interview call?

No !! The interview really had a huge and a very positive impact during the Anderson application process. I wish everyone gets a chance to interview at Berkeley. I strongly believe that a face-face is where the rubber hits the road !!!!

Well, I have an interview at UCLA this weekend. Hopefully it goes as well at the Berkeley one did.

For UCLA, it's usually 2nd year femba students on the interview panel, and the admissions director mentioned that they treat the interview feedback as a third recommendation. So it's not mandatory and it doesn't carry a lot of weight unless you need to explain weaknesses in your application.

The college level mathematics prerequisite will be waived if you have a 47+ Quant score on the GMAT. The vast majority of admitted students will have to take the statistics waiver exam, a statistics course at a community college, or one of a couple statistics workshops held during the summer.

Maybe !! When the Asst Dean called regarding the acceptance, he specifically mentioned that the person who interviewed gave a very positive feedback and that it really helped them come to a decision. So, for those of you who are interviewing with Anderson, give it your best shot. I am assuming your sleeves are all rolled up for giving the best shot. Berkeley / Anderson - They are both fantastic universities to go to.

Anyone else get an email from the director of student experience? Strange email and I'm not quite sure what they were trying to get across.

Nothing really, just that it was a strange email that didn't really say a whole lot.

I think it's an email to show that they really "care" about the program. Moreover, it's mainly for those who are still contemplating on whether to apply or not.

That probably won't happen. If you look at their application deadlines there's a 2 week overlap between when R2 applications are due and when R1 admits are announced. They use that time to go through all the R2 applications to see what kind of class they're going to have. That's also why your chances are roughly the same between R1 and R2.

That's probably the same reason UCLA makes the deposit for R1 due on 1/31 when Berkeley announces R1 admits on 2/1.
