Hey,

I have just received an interview invite for round 4. But the email begins with "We would like to speak to you regarding your interest in the MFE program" and then proceeding with the rest of the details like the time and interviewer. I am just wondering if this is the template they send their interview invites in. If anyone has gotten an invite for Round 4, please do comment here. Apologies if this is a stupid question.

No idea. I interviewed with UCB around 10 days ago. I think it went well but haven't heard back. When did you guys interview and how was it ?. Please post in the thread if anyone gets through in this round.

I am a round 4 applicant. Haven't applied for the earlier rounds and haven't had my interview yet. @cooldude could you tell us how your interview went and maybe shed light on what was asked specifically with respect to the technical questions. Thanks

I was interviewed by alumnus. He asked questions on resume, basic linear algebra, time series, finance, probability and statistics. I think I answered most of the questions correctly. Now hoping for the best.

Thanks for the info. If you don't mind my asking, do you have relevant full-time work experience?
All the best!

The website mentions that the interview determines one's prerequisite readiness and what pre-program courses one has to do. Apparently, it does not affect the admission decision. Is this, in reality, actually true? I am just curious.

I think interviews are more important in round 4 than in any other round since there is less time left for preparation for the course. They might be expecting round 4 applicants to be well versed in all prerequisites, so interviews are the opportunities for applicants to showcase their preparation. Though I'm not sure, just guessing.

Hi there! I just got my interview invitation yesterday and it is scheduled next week. So I think it will take some time for the results to come. Rest assured and wish us all the best!
