Thanks for the update, westsew. I would not attach too much meaning to the length of the interview - albeit 15 minutes being on the lower side. Maybe your responses were succinct and well-focused. If you really think about it, you can answer quite a few questions and have a good discussion if your responses span, on an average, a minute and a half to two. Just my two cents.

Hi,

I am interviewing with Tim Hossain on campus, I am from Europe. Do you have any suggestion on how to prepare. Generally I am confident with face to face interactions and have things to say about the usual questions. But I want to have the feeling of being prepared.

What are your experiences with the Foster interview process?

I had my interview with Tim near LAX on Feb 26th. I showed up almost 45 mins late - thanks to a couple of accidents and LA traffic. I left San Diego 2.5 hours before the interview start time to be there 30 mins prior but still showed up 45 mins late - there went the first impression and the 45 mins of our one hour slot! I duly apologized, and Tim was very accommodating. The interview lasted about 35 mins with the next guy in line waiting patiently for us to get done. I thnaked that guy who played a good teamball.

The interview went fine. Besides the standard questions - why MBA, why now, why Foster, there were quite a few interesting questions. 1) Define success 2) Define failure 3) What will your subordinates say about you? 4) What is the biggest challenge you think that you will face at Foster? 5) The weakness in your application that we should overlook and why? 6) No MBA, what is your plan? and a few more I just can't recollect. As you can see, we were (esp., I was) working under tremendous time pressure, but overall I think it went ok given the initial roadbump (no pun intended). My two cents is that one should personalize the answers to the extent possible even for questions like #1 and #2. Big picture perspective, treat it like a job interview nothing more nothing less.

Hope this helps.

It's been approx 1 month since my interview. I thought I would've heard good or bad news by now. Can anyone shed any light on this?

I did my interview today on campus..
First of all, the city is wonderful, the campus is too!!! I love this program and I want so much to get admitted..!

I do not know how the interview went, I had so many thing that now that I am thinking I did not mention...

Why MBA, why now, why Foster?
What is the strongest part in your application?
Tell me what people at work will say about you?
Define success.
Define failure.
If an MBA was not an option what you would do.
What do you think will be the greatest challenge you will face at the Foster program.
The biggest professional failure.

UW is an amazing institution (my gf goes there currently) and on the rise no doubt about it. Clearly top 25 and gunning for the top 20's pretty soon. The campus is gorgeous and a new building is going up as well. Best of luck to everyone applying!

Question for any first/second round admits - When did get your decision? The decision date or earlier? Were there phone calls or just an online update?

Thanks.

I got in!! I received an email as well as a call from Tim. Tim mentioned that the committee would meet in a week or so to decide on the merit-based scholarships. Can people who got scholarship let me know what was offered? Just FYI, he also mentioned that the admitted students can fill out the Fafsa and the UW application for need based assistantship.

Sorry to hear about people who did not get in. Better luck next time and best of luck with other schools.
