Hey all,

If I applied for the Jan 20th deadline and haven't heard back yet, should I be worried? I feel that I was a strong applicant and deserved at least an interview but haven't heard back yet.

Thanks!

I think you may want to email them, or check your junk mail folder. I applied for R3 but hadn't heard anything from them for a month.
But then I received an email from UW adcom staff. She said she had sent me the invitation to interview a few weeks ago and she hadn't heard from me yet. I didn't receive the first email. It might go to my junk folder. At the end, the staff sent me the details. Will have the interview in an hour with Andy Chen!!

Good luck!

It was much smaller than I had anticipated, only 35-40 people altogether but it did seem like there may have been a few folks who didn't make it. This is only the second year they have had the early round so I would expect R2 to be 3-4 times as large...maybe bigger depending on expected yield? My friends who have already been through the program said their evaluation days were something like 170, fwiw.

It was a lot of fun though. The small group exercises were awesome, it really helps it not seem like a six hour interview! The thing I was probably most surprised (and impressed) to see was the number of people from out of state. My sample size was small, but of the maybe 10 people I talked to, two were from Utah, one from Portland, and one from Wash DC, all in town just for evaluation day.

Reviewing past interview questions... I assume one should expect the usual, similar to the goals essay?

- Walk through resume
- Why MBA, why Foster, why now
- What is a weakness in your app
- detail short term goal
- how your subordinates/peers would describe you
- contribution to peers

a few oddballs?
- definition of success/failure
- Plan if not admitted
- describe leadership style

Input from those who've interviewed already appreciated
