Hey guys,

I have a silly question. I have a 4 year UG engg. degree(India) in which the medium of instruction was English.

Now the fosters website says they will use their own discretion to determine whether I will be eligible for a TOEFL waiver

http://foster.uw.edu/academics/degree-p ... dmissions/

Based on the above, I have the following questions
1. Did all the INDIAN applicants give TOEFL? Is there anyone who hasn't given and got an invite in R1?
2. Will foster directly ding me in case they feel that my UG degree is not equivalent to U.S bachelor degree? Or will they inform me that I need to compulsorily submit TOEFL score

Please let me know your thoughts. Planning to apply for R2.

Hi there!

Here is the answer:

All they will ask you is to submit a letter from the university stating that they taught you in English medium.

So, there is no need of TOEFL. I remember I ran to my university when I got an email stating they need the proof from university and that too within 3 days.

When I sent them my proof, they added to my file and then later invited me for the further process.

Preferably, go ahead and get the proof from university asap.

I hope that answers your query. :)



Thanks abhi for the quick response as always

Sure, I will get an email or make sure the transcripts have that sentence written (Although my University degree has this line written "medium of instruction was in English")

I think this depends on interviewer. So, I would not assume anything negative until I hear the final decision.

If possible, please share your experience.

All the best :)

It was chill with a mix of questions about work ex, fit with foster and some behavioral questions
Be sure to be clear about what are u seeking from an MBA, and what are your goals and how can Foster help you in that.
Apart from that, questions were related to the work experience, what you do, your passions outside work etc.

As per last year thread, admission decision started to roll out ahead of decision date, as early as 9th December. But this year there has been no updates here yet.. Seems the decisions will roll out on 22nd Dec only..

Maybe this year same thing happened, but not with people on this forum ? Althought i prefer not to think so! Does anybody know first hand that there will definitely be blanket notification?

Accepted! The person on the call said that an email will follow with next steps and any additional information. Does anyone know whether they provide any scholarship details during the phone call or is that enclosed separately?
