Hi all, I just received the conditional offer from UCB MFE. But I am confused about the pre-requisite.

Does anyone know to which extent I should read these pre-requisite books? Does the committee conduct regular checks on my reading progress?

By the way, do you have any recommendations on where to take these pre-requisite courses online?

Thanks in advance!

I thin you should read these books throughly as this will help you in preparing for internship interiews and also for the course.

For machine learning you can look into one offered by coursera.
Thank you Rachit. What if I have taken one machine learning course at UCB Summer Session? Can I just use that one as the pre-requisite? Thanks~

Hi, I also received a conditional offer : I have to complete the same preparation checklist before a deadline ( on November). Are you in the same case ? Did they give you a deadline ?

Hi~Yes, they gave me a set of pre-requisites before November. And they will conduct a monthly check on my progress.

I also wonder whether this means our admission is guaranteed if we successfully complete these pre-requisites.

I am in the same situation. I feel that the "offer" I received was not really clear ... ( they said that I will not be 'recommended' before I complete the preparation)

Oh in my letter, they said this:

Are we in the same situation here? I think mine means as long as I can complete these courses and read these books, I will be given an admission.

My ODE/PDE endorsed by UCB online course is taken by students going to UCB.

Pro Tip - do everything they suggest and more. This is foundational knowledge; if you have to acquire it during the program, you're going to have to give up recruiting. I wish I would have stopped working earlier before school and spent a few months getting up to speed; I was shocked by how well prepared my classmates were. This requirement from UCB I think is one of the strongest elements of their program.

Thank you a lot for your genuine advice! :ROFLMAO:
