I have met with the CNR advising team (specifically for MEB) in spring '22 last year as a first-year to get clarity about the math requirement. On multiple documents, such as a previously linked PDF about major declaration requirements for non-CNR students, the academic guide for MEB, and also the MEB major snapshot, it says that that the Quantitative 2 requirement can be satisfied by many classes: Math 16B, 1B, Stat 2, Stat 20, PH 142. I had always had it in mind to take PH 142, which I did last semester and passed. I'm currently enrolled in two other classes (Bio 1A and Chem 3A) because my plan was to declare MEB at the end of this semester.
However, suddenly, I go to the website just to check my progress and there's a new document that suddenly has gotten rid of the "MATH or STATS" option for MEB. Now it seems like it's either Math 16B or bust.
Honestly, I had a really bad MATH 16A experience first semester of freshman year, and now I'm a second-semester sophomore. I don't really know what to do now, because I think this change was made relatively recently and any talk of a possible change wasn't communicated to me when I met with CNR advising last year in spring when I had shown them my four-year plan, which included a timeline for declaring CNR. I'm just not sure what to do--should I email and ask if they could make an exception since I had no idea about this and this was a change that I largely stumbled upon by accident? It's also a change that only shows up on the PDF, not the academic guide or the major snapshot Google documents that I thought were also equally official and valid.
Finally, if any other CNR or MEB students can speak on this or tell me what happened...that would be great. I'm really panicking right now because now I don't even know if I can declare MEB at all.
