Just had my interview with Andy Chen, Assistant Director of Admissions. The interview was at 9 a.m. in his office on campus.

The tone was conversational, and I felt pretty relaxed (except when I fumbled a question). Pretty standard interview questions: Why MBA now, What were your b-school selection criteria, What would be an ideal post-MBA job given your stated career goals, What are you going to get involved in to accomplish your goals while at Foster.

I'm probably just being too hard on myself, but I didn't have a very good feeling coming out of the interview. I did really well on the questions about my experience, motivation, goals... not so much about specific details of what I'm going to do in the program or in the future. I just hate telling people what I'm *going* to do, it seems so ingenuous... I'd rather just go and do it to show them. Meh, hate interviews. Oh well, just have to wait and see now.

Congrats to all the R2 people who got an interview invite this week.

Is there anyone else that didn't hear anything at all? Its got me worried! Haven't heard anything, good or bad- was wondering if I'm the only one who hasn't heard back yet from this round.

almost forgot about this thread, thought i'd share my interview experience -

I interviewed on campus with an individual from the Student Affairs department. Questions that I recall include:

Resume walk-through
Why MBA
Why Now
ST and LT Goals
Why Foster
What activities do you want to be involved in
Share a leadership experience
Share a professional regret
Share a team work experience
Why do you think you'll be hired for your internship/job
What do you bring to the class
Questions for me

The tone was very friendly, although there was a list of prepared questions that made the interview a bit more structured (as opposed to a free-flowing conversation).

For those of you who haven't visited campus, I encourage you to do so. The new business building (PACCAR) is beautiful and the campus is amazing. Seattle is also an enjoyable city, and even though it rained during my visit it wasn't as bad as people often say (for reference, I'm from the SF Bay area, I think our storms are worse when we have them).

Out of curiosity, are there any folks who have UW as their #1 choice here? Wanted to get some more thoughts on the school as next Friday is the day I should have all of my decisions on hand.

Shouldn't the result be out on 14th instead of 15th? Considering the fact that 15th is a saturday.
