Waitlist UCB and no Interview yet

Hello,
I had been waitlisted for UCB MFE, but have not had my interview yet. I have been asked to complete few courses first(Coursera coursers etc). What are the chances of converting the waitlist to Acceptance? Anyone who was in a similar position and has received an admit? Thank you.
 
I'm not sure about this, but I think you will have to wait till at least the end of Round 3. The admitted students also get a pre-requisite checklist so don't worry, it is very much possible that you'll be interviewed soon. Just make sure that you are disciplined, are doing the courses and are sending them regular monthly updates. Good luck!

Understand. Thank you for this.
 
Hi PDquant,
I am in the exactly same position as you but in Round 4. I didn't get an interview and was placed on Waitlist. I wonder did you get any update from them as you complete their preparation list?

Hey, did you get an interview? I was interviewed but no result yet.
