Hi

That's little weird. Did u get a reply from Iris regarding this matter?

Hello Sidsak,

Earlier today, I received a mail stating that I was recommended for admission, my file was forwarded to graduate department and will be receiving an official offer letter shortly.
Iris confirmed that interview invite mail was sent to me by mistake.

it takes like 3 months if you know what youre doing, 6 if you're new to programming.

Hi HNamburi

This offer is conditional till I submit my official transcripts by Sept 30th. No computer science prerequisite but I came to know from previous batch that it is actually needed in winter course. As at that time burden will be too much so better to finish before starting fall semester.

Hello Sidsak,


It means that we may receive an unconditional final offer letter irrespective of the computer science prerequisite,

I've started Introduction to computer science course in EDx, now @ week 0, seems like it may take a few months to complete :mellow:

Thanks for your info, :D

Just FYI, they dont monitor if anybody does these courses or not, they are just suggestions. However if you are planning on taking a lot of compsci courses and have no idea about coding, they do help. 

but for the mandatory compsci course, its alot different then what the online courses teach.
