FYI... if you were wait-listed they might throw you in the R4 pool... R4 acceptance deadline is June 15.

If it was me... I would go to Foster over Georgetown (especially if you get state tuition). Unless, you have some overriding reason to be in DC (family or desire to work with NGOs or government).

Good luck!

I was waitlisted before this interview came up. I would pick Foster over Georgetown for exactly the reason you give - it will be in-state tuition and I certainly won't have to move cross country which helps with finances as well. Problem is: the deadline for Georgetown is May 1st. An interview is no guarantee of admittance and I don't want to gamble my future on a what if/maybe.

Would it be overly gauche for me to ask them how soon I could find out at my interview? Or maybe let them know that I would certainly choose Foster - if offered admission - over Georgetown and mention that the date is May 1st?

Not sure... Admissions Date for R4 is May 15th... if you applied R3 and they just offered you a F2F... they might let you know by R3 Deadline of March 30th (depending on when your interview is). The fact that they reached out to you now (after they received R4 applications) means they obviously think you are competitive. I would wait until after R3 decisions are out and then if you haven't heard anything I would politely explain the situation. Another thing to consider is how big is the deposit for Georgetown? It's still probably a way better deal for you to lose your deposit at Georgetown if you get into Washington.

Good luck!

Earliest interview I could get was April 3rd. Georgetown deposit is 2k. I can't afford to throw that kind of money away. Do you think mentioning the timetable at the interview is appropriate? Or steer clear? I feel like I am stuck between a rock and a hard place for this.

Because you're coming from the wait-list I would say its probably okay to bring it up at the end of the interview. Just ask them what the time line is and what not... it gives you a further chance to express your love for all things UW/Seattle and reiterate how you would accept and what not... I would not want to waste the 2k either... Good luck.

I'll plan to do that then.

Thanks for the advice! :-D

Anyone from R4 get an interview invite yet?


Hey all, first time post.

I got my application in on the 15th, got offered both video and f2f interviews on the 24th. Is that unusual? I would expect f2f to be dependent on the video.

A few people in R3 got the same double invite. It may or may not be unusual, but it certainly has precedence. Congrats!

Thanks! Would you mind sharing your profile (GMAT score, first letter of last name).

This waiting game is soooo stressful!

Forgive my ignorance, I'm not sure exactly what you mean.

I have to admit that on paper I don’t think that I look very good. GPA of 2.8, disappointing GMAT of 650. I was 96th percentile for the verbal portion, but didn’t do as well as I could have for quant. I assumed that I would need to retake the GMAT and reapply for next year. With proper studying I am positive that I can swing my score up over 670, possibly over 700 since the verbal is a given.

I have a lot of work history, basically since 1999 in high school, constantly moving up and taking risks in my professional life. I honestly think that my essays and narrative are what have them interested in me, so now I get a chance to present myself and explain some things from my past. In some ways I wonder if the interviews are because they really don’t know what to make of me. But I do pride myself on my writing ability, so maybe it was purely what they saw in my essays. One of the things that I heard several times from recent grads and current students there is that they want people with a compelling story.

There is a Facebook group and a whatsapp group for admitted students. You should get details in a follow-up email from UW.


The follow-up email did mention about the facebook group, but not the whatsapp group. Can anyone here add me to the whatsapp group, if there is one?


Congrats on the admit!
PM me your number, I can add you to the whatsapp group

So I did my video, which wasn't too bad. As long as i don't get a new email saying to not bother showing up to the in-person then i should be good :)

My questions were-
What is your greatest achievement outside of work?
What three things do you want to learn at Foster?


I found out from admission that I can retake the GMAT by the end of April and submit my new score, so I will go ahead and do so. But at the moment I am cautiously optimistic!

I got the initiail personality interview invitation today. THe one where they give you practice questions, and it is very informal. My question is, are the practice questions the same ones given during the actual interview or will they be random questions to test your ability to speak on the spot?

Thanks for any help
