GMAT Club broke my heart. I'm on edge waiting to hear from Foster and suddenly I see an email with the heading "Congrats on your Admit!" I clicked on it super excited without checking who it was from, only to read about sharing my application experience in future years on these forums. Yes, I would love to share my experience in future years. But maybe send an email about it later, not while I'm on the edge of my seat, biting my nails and waiting for a different email that congratulates me on my admission.


And I say all of that in jest. Thank you GMAT Club for the kind email. I think this is a wonderful community and sharing experiences is what the forums are all about. But, poor timing on that email and I know I'm not alone on receiving it at a bad time. Back to the wait!



hahahaha I had the SAME thought!! so, maybe today we hear something?


I hope so. From what everyone is saying about earlier rounds they tend to give an answer the Friday before decision week. Let's hope that continues with this round. Also glad to see we applied to many of the same schools (I almost applied to Boston as well but then never submitted the application). We have a decent chance of ending up at the same school. I applied to Tepper in the 3rd round though as my job had some sway into my application order since they controlled my recommendations (part time programs and DC schools first, then full time and out of town) so depending on deadline dates some apps were pushed out to later rounds.



In round 1, I received a call around 2:30 PM PST the Friday before the decision date and I believe I was one of the very first people called. Good luck!!

I hear you man, I've love to get notice - either way - so I can make a decision and move forward. This is rather trying.

buster52, iammike352, and aaropp, you guys all have great acceptances already. Would you go to Foster over your current schools? I'd love to be in Seattle personally.

So my friend from Foster talked to the director, and was told all decisions for R3 are finalized. Today might be the day fellows.

Can I get a quick show of hands of you who are waiting for Foster?

whitman - yeah I think I would take Foster over Owen, but I'm not positive on that one - would be a pretty tough call! You would prefer Foster?

Great question whitman! There's a lot of variables, namely: financial aid and my wife's career. Until we have the offer and financials, then have the discussion re: jobs for her, I couldn't tell you for sure. I very much loved visiting Foster and think they have a lot to offer- I would love to be a part of the program.

I'm not sure. Given scholarships from Anderson and Owen, I'd need to have something comparable from Foster to justify it, and I doubt I'll get that. I was surprised by what I got from Anderson and Owen, and I don't see lightning striking three times. However, Paccar Hall is super nice. Definitely nicer than the Owen facilities. I the the U District is really cool, too, though it's a little sketchy around 50th. Great thai food. Very urban feel. I live in Nashville and have heard nothing but good things about Owen. Everyone I've met is very nice, engaging, enthusiastic, and helpful. However, it is definitely more of a regional school (like Foster in Seattle). Some placement on the west coast and New York, but mostly people take jobs in Nashville and Atlanta, with a smattering of locations based on corporate headquarters in random places like Columbus, OH. Foster seems like it's pretty much all Seattle. I think they're very comparable to one another - small, focused, regional, well-respected. You can't ski an hour from Owen, though. I dunno. I'm leaning toward Anderson, but part of it is I've known about Owen and Anderson for weeks and have gotten excited about them.

Yes! Super excited right now!

At least I think I'm in... Suddenly I'm worried that it was by accident. I hope I get the official email soon.

Hang in there. There's no way of knowing whether they've called everyone already, or even if they'll call everyone today. Plus - you've got a few good options ahead of you already!
