Quote:
I did not convert my GPA. I left my GPA as blank because I do not have a GPA. My undergraduate university was based on % system.

On another note, just submitted my application to Foster for Round 2. How many Round 2 applicants here from India?

My university gives GPA on a 10 scale. I have read somewhere that US b schools are well aware of Indian Grading System and will appropriately weigh for college ranks to accommodate for stricter grades in higher ranked colleges,hence I left the GPA field blank too . My transcripts mention the first class with distinction as 70% + , so lets hope the adcoms do rank me appropriately GPA wise .

Has anyone applied to Foster for second deadline ie 15th November one here and heard back from school?

I submitted my app a couple of weeks back. Haven't heard a thing from school. No video interview or anything. Does that mean a ding?

The Foster admissions team does not start reviewing the application until after the deadline for that particular Round. Basically, you have submitted your application 2 weeks back and I will be submitting it today. The adcom will look at both applications only from 16th Nov.

You can expect interview invites a couple of weeks after the deadline as was the case with Round 1 applicants.

Yes. deadline for R2 is Nov 15th PST. All applications will be reviewed after the deadline.

Punters11 :- Do we need to submit/mail any other thing after the applicationsubmission ( except for sending the official GMAT score from mba.com ) ??
And what GPA converter did you use to convert indian GPA

My university gives a CGPA out of 10, so I just found the CGPA of the last 3 (or was it 4?) semesters that Foster asked for and divided it by 2.5. I know it's incredibly crude but there is no set GPA calculator that I could find. Most are inaccurate because we don't have a grading scale of 9 or 10 grades like the US. The uploaded transcripts should have been enough considering they invited me for an interview.

I think it is 2 weeks from application submission to interview call.

For all the applicants for Foster who are yet to have an interview, I found this file in an earlier thread for Foster applicants. Should be very helpful. Certainly helped me!

I looked through last years posts and it appears that everyone started getting notices / interview invites around December 1.

According to their admissions page, all accepted students do both a video interview and a live interview. Competitive applicants will be invited to both (although I'm not sure what they mean by competitive... is it candidates with great profiles? or candidates in overrepresented "competitive" profiles?). Many others will initially be invited to just the video interview, then after further review may be invited to the live interview. I received both invites in 1 email. https://foster.uw.edu/academics/degree-programs/full-time-mba/admissions/how-to-apply/

In this video (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bxt78ZiMtvU) the admissions director said that the majority of applicants get invited to the video interview. A smaller pool gets invited to do both the video and live interview.
