Thanks abhimahna for the lightening quick reply as always.

I was wondering why there is no * for optional essay. Ideally, there should be one as others have it


As per them * means it may be required in future and they may reach out to you. Since optional essay is optional, they are telling that don't worry we won't come back for this item. :lol:

Can anyone tell the exact deadline for Round 2 of Fosters. The website mentions January 12. So is it January 12 23:59 PST or January 12 00:01 PST.
I am asking because I am still working on the essay and it may take 1-2 days to complete.

Hi guys, Im a candidate from India. I have studied engineering at the Mumbai University. We had the semester system and no gpa whatsoever. So how do I convert my gpa to the 4 point gpa scale? I have BE in EXTC with 69%. Any of the conversion tools mentioned by Foster do not consider this system. Should i tick the box of "my college did not provide grades"? What did other Indian Sudents do? Please help. Hoping for a quick reply since the deadline is quite close (12 Jan)

I currently have the same problem (I graduated from Pune University)and wrote to the foster adcom regarding an alternate solution.

I am hoping I get a reply from them before Jan 12. I will keep this forum updated.

Worst case if I don't get any solution, I will select that option (my college didn't provide any grades) and submit the application.

Hey rrkvr46

This is the reply I got from Foster Adcom today morning IST

Quote:
Hello xxxxxx,

Thank you for your interest in the Foster MBA Program and for reaching out to us directly. You will need to input a GPA in order to submit a complete application to the program. Please use any of the preferred methods to calculate your GPA and update this portion within the application portal.

Let me know if you have any other questions, I’m happy to help.


In short, I believe we have to convert our grades to a 4 point scale on our own and submit the application. Checking the "My college doesn't provide any grades" option will be our loss.

To confirm, will you be using this calculator - https://www.foreigncredits.com/Resource ... alculator/
I've received marks on the scale of either 125 (For eg: Maths - 85/125) or 75 (For eg: Chem Lab - 55/75). I'll be converting these marks to the scale of 100 and then calculate the cumulative GPA. Is my approach correct?

Also, do we need to calculate Major GPA as well or only the cumulative GPA?

Hi!

R1 admit here (Indian candidate). I would like to share some insights for applicants who are interested in tech industry post MBA.

From my research and conversations with alums and current students, I learnt that Foster is great for people aspiring a career in tech industry. Its strength lies in its students, resources and its relation with some of the best tech companies in the world such as Microsoft, Amazon, T-Mobile and Expedia. With the headquarters of these companies situated right in its backyard, Foster has the best access and an undisputed brand recognition in these companies and a lot of the students end up being product managers, which is what I am also interested in. With a majority of the class getting into the these companies for tech, Foster alums come back to recruit from these companies.

That being said, I would advise the following for the applicants who are awaiting interview invites.

1. Know clearly why you want to do an MBA, why now and why Foster.
2. With respect to your post MBA goal, do not hesitate to talk about your plan B, in case plan A doesn't work.
3. It's always great to mention the names of the people whom you are in touch with (if the person is comfortable in sharing his/her name with the adcom) and how your relationship has helped in your process.
4. You may or may not be asked directly "why you" but be prepared to convey the message during the interview.
5. In addition to the above point, also extrapolate and convey the message why would your target company hire you for your target role. This gives assurance to the school that it will have no trouble finding a job for you and also conveys the adcom that you have not just researched about the school but also the company and role that you want to get into.
6. Foster has a very supportive and collaborative culture and not a cut throat competition. Ensure you display the fit to the school.
7. Prepare couple of questions to ask in the end of the interview. These can be questions that came up during your research or conversation with the alums or even that came up during the interview. Avoid questions that can be answered with the information given on the website.
8. In addition to the above points, be prepared to answer general behavioral questions - strength, weakness, tough day at work, how did you resolve a conflict, role model, ethics, integrity etc.,
9. For situational answers, presenting in a STAR format (Google it for more information) gives a holistic picture to the interviewer.
10. Note to Indian students: We Indians, tend to speak fast. So request you to slow down a bit while talking to the interviewer.

If you have any specific questions, feel free to reach out.

All the best!
