Looks like they're rolling out now. Just received video interview and an admissions interview invitation. Admissions interview Skype, campus or hub options. Going to try to make a trip up to Seattle! Video interview due by Nov 4th.

Time to prepare for this video interview portion. Anyone with any insight?

Best of luck to all.


Not much insight other than take a look at last years thread for ideas on what to expect. The people there do discuss the sample questions they had. Interesting that we all so far have both video and in-person interveiws and last year it looks like people got one or the other.

Did you guys get 2 separate invites at the same time or just one invite for both video and in person?

I received just the video interview...mixed feeling since it's not both..why would foster do both video & admission interview? What does it mean that I'm only getting video? Is the proper route to go from video interview to admission interview to an admission decision? Or can ppl get admitted based on video interview? Dont know how i should interpret this.

Congrats to everyone with invites! :)

To those who have been invited - Do update your status for Foster to "Invited to Interview". This tracker will give you'll an idea of how the invites are rolling out (based on profile updates done by those with invites)

Got a video Interview invite. No word on Adm interview. I can see only one more person is in the same boat as me (interview vise).

westcoastplan, did you by chance visited Foster?

My rationalization was only that, cos I did.

Good luck to everyone.

No I did not...is it because my application is not as strong as those who received both, so they decided to have me do video first before deciding whether I'm worthy for an adm interview?

Dear I would not go that far. Also I might not be the best person to answer what went wrong with your essays or app. But I do think that Foster will not change its tradition, last year, as well, they sent single and double interviews. so it might be a matter of different reviewer. one might have thought that 'hey! i'll give both', other might have said i need just some facetime to be sure.

And trust me getting a ding is not the end of the world.

ciao.

Thanks for comforting. Let's just ace the video interview and hopefully there'll be some good news that follow :)

Got just the Video interview. Don't know how to interpret it. The mail says "Please note that some candidates who complete the video interview may still be invited to complete a formal admission interview at a later date, as we continue issuing invitations throughout the review period." Does this mean that Video interview can directly lead to an admission?

On the same boat with you together with Alaukik. I don't think video interview directly leads to admission - it's more plausible to be an extra screening before the formal adm interview.

Invited for video interview :) .
The practice questions have the following structure: Prep Time: 30 seconds, Time for Answers: 90 seconds
but the mail mentions that the video interview will last 15-20 minutes, so does that mean that we have to answer these 2 questions in 10-15 minutes during the actual interview?

hmm... I did not get any email from Foster and looking at this thread it looks like a lot of people did. Should I loose hope and this is the end of video & interview invites for the 1st round?

Just scheduled my Skype interview for the 17th. A lot later than I would have liked but work schedule is just crazy at the moment. Plus, as UW is my first choice, I can use my McCombs interview earlier in the week as "practice" for the Foster one. I would have preferred to interview in person but they're not coming to Boston and it's too expensive to to go home (Seattle) on such short notice.

As for the 1 Video interview vs. 2 interviews deal, I doubt it's based off of your stats, based on the stats listed in your profiles, you guys shoot me out of the water. Maybe they dont think Foster is your first choice?
