I made only one mistake (98% in homework 6) and haven't got the letter.

It's probably because they're using other filters as well and not only using score.

I.E., it would make sense they only want to hire people under certain age, or certain academic enrollment status... Who knows...

Have you done all the other homeworks? I also missed only 1 question on HW6 and I did get the letter.

I did them all and got 100% everywhere (except in HW6). I am kind of disappointed. May be the quizzes are part of the grading?

I think this has to be the case. My friend has a lower HW and midterm average than me, but he got the letter and I did not.

My gut feeling is that they weighted specific questions.

I doubt it, I got the letter but my quizzes scores are rather mediocre.
