ajhawarajhawar Registered User Posts: 1 New Member

I am a current student in the M.E.T. program at UC Berkeley. If you are considering applying, I WOULD HIGHLY RECOMMEND IT!!! The program is awesome and definitely sets you up for success. If you have any questions for a current student please comment or message me, I would love to help out!

    Did Haas add more seats for this program per class or did they take some of the existing seats and dedicate them to this new program? Wondering if there are now less seats for transfers or sophomores trying to get in without EECS.

    Looks like a total of 30 students this year. Compare to over 300 per year for each of the business and EECS majors (but the IEOR and ME majors are smaller).

    So 10% now of the class seats are saved for these students?

    What did you do to get into M.E.T. Program? I’ve seen many articles about its selectivity. I’m a high school student attending a top high school and I’m finally sure about what I want to pursue. I would be doing ME + Business track. Are you an out of state student? I’m hesitant to attend Berkeley due to the lack of financial aid given to our of state students. Thanks for offering help!

    Does anyone know the timeline for when MET applicants are notified?
  • hellomynamejeffhellomynamejeff Registered User Posts: 21 Junior Member
    @GHolmes on their website it said sometime in Feb. Did you get the interview? I saw some EECS people on this forum get the interview already which is insane because that means they reviewed thousands of applicants in like 20 days... Either way, I didn't get it so too bad. Program looks nice though. Hope normal EECS turns out well for everyone.

    My DS was notified on February 11th.

    Could it be in a few rounds? I know people who prepared everything in the summer and submitted app on the first day it opened, 11/1; And people who procrastinated and submitted at the last min. So maybe the early applicants get reviewed early and interviewed earlier, and late applicants later?

    @bogeyorpar Theory makes sense in principle. I don't know if any signs point to it being true though.
  • GHolmesGHolmes Registered User Posts: 30 Junior Member
    No interview yet :-(

    Has anyone gotten an interview yet?
  • california32146california32146 Registered User Posts: 67 Junior Member
    Some folks received interview emails already. They selectively send emails till end of this month on rolling basis (I blv the order is based on the when you submitted the MET essay)

    How many interviews do you guys think there are in total?

    @whitball2022 My mathematically-informed guess was around 180 unless they had interviewers doing concurrent interviews (in which case it would be more) or they had open slots left over after scheduling (in which case it would be less).

    EDIT: Ahh misread... This was perhaps just for EECS (which is what I applied for). Theoretically they might have the same setup each for MechE and IEOR? Not sure.
