To RuggedIdealist:

Congratulations! Really happy for you that you got in!

Do you have any idea for how many days or rounds they would send out the admits?



I have no idea! It was very unexpected; I had no questions prepared.

Hi,

I applied Round 3, received an interview invitation on 2/1, and just got a phone call (1:43PM PST) -- I'm in!
Whew, I can sleep a little easier now, knowing that I'm going to school next fall.

Hi Afro64--

I received a phone call (they left a voicemail), and later that afternoon I received an email confirming my admit.

Stats: 700 GMAT / 2.9 UG / 6 yrs WE in nonprofit management / F

Hope this helps!

I got the admit call last Wednesday as well (Round 3 applicant, interviewed 2/8 in San Francisco), WOOHOO - such a relief! As of today I haven't heard anything on $$$ though.

Anyone on here planning on attending the Admitted Student Weekend in early April?

Hi guys, I was admitted R1 and will be matriculating. Scholarship info came with the acceptance letter and was mentioned in the phone call...not sure how helpful that is to those of you waiting but I'll throw it out there FYI.

Can't decide which admit weekend to aim for. I think I'll call admissions to ask if there is usually a difference in popularity between the two, although work schedule/plane ticket $$ will probably be the biggest factor.

I was an R3 applicant and interview early-ish in February. Seeing other people get admit calls a few weeks ago, I totally assumed I was dinged but I just got a call today and I'm in! Totally makes my decision harder since I resigned myself to the idea that Foster was out of the equation.

I'll be attending the May Admit Weekend as well. Driving up from San Fran, planning to stay several days after to house hunt. Looking forward to meeting some of you!

Where are you thinking about living? When I was talking to current students, it seems they're all over the place.

Hey guys,

I got an email from Foster last Thursday congratulating me that i am admitted at the term Fall 2011.

I am very happy that i got in finally. Same with rha, i thought that i was dinged too.

But i am not sure if i can make it to admit weekends, as for the moment, i am thousands of miles away from U.S. :p

I believe it will be very important to attend one. If i can't make it, I will rely on your posts in the forum after you attend one then.

Cheers, and see you all in a few months!

I got a phone call (came from an unknown number...if I saw a 206 area code, I totally would have known it was UW and picked up!). It was followed by an e-mail. I think they called to let me know about Admit Weekend (can't make the April one).

Congrats to all who've been accepted. Seems like the calls are still going out so fingers crossed to those of you still waiting to hear!

For housing - we're looking at Capitol Hill, Madrona, Ravenna, Greenlake, Fremont, Wallingford and possibly Queen Anne areas. When I was up there at a preview weekend event, I heard a # of students say NOT to live in U-district and that a good amount of them seemed to prefer/like Greenlake. My husband will be working near downtown at Harborview Med Center so commute times there factor into our decision as well.
