Joe is considering pursuing an MBA degree. He has applied to two different universities. The acceptance rate for applicants with similar qualifications is 25% for University A and 40% for University B. Is the acceptance decision at University A independent of the acceptance decision at University B? A. Yes B. No Yes, the two decisions are statistically independent If the MBA acceptance decisions are independent at the two universities, then P(Accepting at A) = P(Accepting at A given rejecting at B).
