UCB With Low Experience

Hello all,

I have received an offer from UCB MFE program, which I am very excited about, however looking at the bios of people in the program, many of them have a lot more experience than I do. This slightly worries me as we will be competing for the same off-cycle internships. Does anyone have any thoughts about this?

You don't need to worry, just work your bu** off, I know some people in the program with little to no experience, and they are doing fine. That's the case in every program too; trust me, if your background wasn't impressive, UCB wouldn't grant you admission, bottom line. Just believe in yourself, work with a peer, and hopefully you will do great.
