My video interview questions were on these lines:
1. What was the biggest risk you took in your career? What was the outcome?
2. Tell us about a time you disagreed with your manager. How did you convince her and what was the outcome?
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

How many days does it take after this round to get a status update on the application?

Anyone have idea regarding how much time does school take to give out interview call to shortlisted candidates.

Just checked the admissions site; it says 4-6 weeks after application deadline:

Admission Interview
Admission interviews are by invitation only and will be sent by email to select applicants within 4-6 weeks of the application deadline to which you applied. Interviews are conducted by Foster MBA Admissions staff and the interview invitation will provide instructions on how to schedule the interview. Interviews may take place on the University of Washington campus, in other select locations, or by Skype. In-person interviews are strongly preferred if the cost and effort are not unduly burdensome. If you are invited to interview, you must do so in order to remain under consideration for admission to the program.

I see all three of them are Indians. I am not sure if it works that way, but it could have been sent to Indian students for now?

No response better than a rejection all I can say. I attended an Info Session in December where they claimed to be very judicious with interview invites, so a rejection with no interview would be a gut punch for sure.

Hey guys,

Congrats to all of those who received interview invitations today. I also see a lot of invites on the Foster "livewire" on clear admit.

I did not receive an interview invite today, and I will admit that it hurts, seeing as it probably means I will be dinged. Foster was my first choice, so to not even have the chance to interview just sucks. Alas, rejection is a part of life :)

I wish everyone continued good luck!

I was just going though last year's thread. I think they don't have it on a rolling basis. Almost everyone got the invite on the same day. I am really sorry to inform you this.

Yes,
I realized the same thing. I hate to say it, but if you don't get an interview invite today you probably won't get one.....Foster seems to send them out on the same day with very few exceptions.

Hi Guys,

I got an admission interview Invite today for Foster. Any rough idea or past statistics about the percentage chances of getting admitted after the interview(in case of Foster)?

Can't imagine those stats will be easy to find, but if you consider that Foster gets ~1000 apps per year and admits 20-30%, odds are pretty favorable.

Hard to think about these in just pure statistics, because there isn't necessarily a "formula" for getting accepted to any particular school.

This might answer your question to a certain extent

"The MBA program has also been able to focus their efforts to become far more efficient in their admissions process. Town and her team went from interviewing up to 65% of applicants “live” (either in-person or via video conference) to closer to 45% of applicants."
