Is anyone doing on campus interview ?

I really wanted to, but flights were around 300 one way and they're sending an adcom member to my city so I'm opting for that.


I also want to. But it will be too costly for me. I cannot sell my shares to go to US. :-D

I booked my slot for mid November Offline interview though.



The available time slots are according to IST or Seattle time? Any idea??

I do not see my GMAT score as received. But I did send them before the deadline. Does anyone face the same issue?

Yes, on the application it still says not received but I received an email confirmation when it was officially received by the school, and this was confirmed again a few days after application submission once I reached out to inquire about the status on my application not changing.

I interviewed yesterday. It wasn’t anything crazy. I talked through my resume and the rest of my application. I think it went well.

Anyone else interview?

Had my interview with Adcom member via Skype. great experience! Out of 4 interviews i had, i actually liked this one the best.

First, of all, really friendly and just cool interviewer.

Second, the interviewer is a marketing professional, and since i do want to pursue marketing post-mba, that made the conversation much more meaningful. i don't think it was done on purpose, since students are assigned interviewers when they select time slots. but still very nice it came out that way.

Third, no questions like "name a leader that you emulate in your leadership style", etc. I don't want to say they are stupid, but personally, i do not think these questions are worth the MBA level and MBA candidates can speak about more meaningful things this.

Fourth, be ready to speak about all your previous jobs - why you chose them, why you changed from one job to another, what you liked about a particular job, etc. Basically you want all your experiences, and changes in jobs to have logic behind them, and not just random jumping. I was asked even about a job that i had 11 years ago (!!!!), which was very unexpected. Do not listen to consultants when they say stuff from long ago is of no interest to the Adcom - turns out it sometimes is. I was even asked why i didn't want to pursue profession according to my undergrad major (my graduation was 13 years ago).

Fifth, know your career goals very well. company, position, what skills are required, how you will get in the post-mba job, what will be a barrier, what will help (your previously gained skills), how will mba help you in terms of acquired skills to get the job. etc. They want to make sure you are totally employable and you are have solid well-worked post-mba plan.

In addition, see interview reports about Foster which are out there, because they are all very consistent, and there is not much variability between what i read in these reports and what I actually had in my experience. And yes, i was asked how did i find students and alumni of Foster. i do not see this as challenging, because you just tell how you found these people and approached them. I know some people compalined on the forum that they were shocked when asked something unexpectedly plain and self-explainatory like this. so don't be shocked , just answer in the same plain way :cool:

Just had my in person interview. Started off with a standard walk through the resume. There were some questions related to my resume during that.

Next were some follow up professional questions and some professional/situational questions.

Third group of questions started with why Foster and then how would an MBA utilize my strengths and help out my weaknesses.

Finally some overall fit type questions to see how I would fit in with the school and the area.

Overall it took 55 minutes and conversation was very natural and flowed easily.

I'm actually not sure. I know other schools I've applied to are released all at once on their decision deadlines, so I would assume that's how Foster works.

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. :)
