Foster Full Time MBA Application Process and Requirements



Online Application Profile


Essays
  • Two essays are required and must be uploaded to your online application. The optional essay allows you to tell us more about yourself or explain an area of potential concern.

    • Essay 1: Post-MBA Plans (750 words maximum)
      Tell us your ideas about what lies ahead for you in your career. What are the gaps or deficiencies currently preventing you from pursuing these potential career paths? How do you plan to use your time in the Foster MBA program to fill these gaps and advance your career?
    • Essay 2: Inspiring Experience Essay (500 words maximum)
      Tell us about an experience that inspired or confirmed your decision to pursue the MBA.
    • Essay 3: Optional essay (500 words maximum)
      Include this essay if you have additional information you believe would be helpful to the admissions committee in considering your application.


Resume
  • Outline your work experience in reverse chronological order. Be sure to include company name, a brief description of the organization (or a web address), your job title, and detailed information about your responsibilities and achievements.
  • Feel free to use up to three pages for your resume, and include all significant work experience since graduating from high school. Include educational background as well as your activities and community involvement.


LORs
  • Two recommendation letters are required; however, you are permitted to submit up to three. Preferably, recommendations should be provided by professional contacts rather than academic or personal contacts. Designate your recommenders in your online application profile. Recommenders will receive an email directing them to the online recommendation form.


GMAT or GRE
  • Foster accepts GMAT and GRE scores.
  • All sub-scores and the Analytical Writing Assessment (AWA) score are evaluated.
  • Scores should indicate a strong aptitude for business studies.


Transcripts and GPA Reporting
  • You must have completed the equivalent of a four-year U.S. bachelor’s degree from a regionally accredited college or university to be considered for admission.
  • Consistency in achievement is considered, but more weight is given to the last two years of study and courses within your academic area of focus.
  • Required Format for All Transcripts: DO NOT send official transcripts to our office via mail. Scan copies of your original transcripts in PDF file format and upload them to the online application. Make sure to include any transcript keys that describe the institution’s grading scale.
  • Reporting your Grade Point Average: Applicants must submit GPA on a 4.0 scale. Pls follow the instructions given on application form to convert your GPA to 4.0 scale if your university was not on such a system.


Video Interview
  • The video interview must be submitted in order for the application to be reviewed.
  • You will receive an email within 3-4 business days after the application deadline with instructions on recording the video interview.
  • The video interview allows Foster team to get to know you better and to assess your communication skills and your ability to think on your feet as they review your application and consider your candidacy.

Most b-schools are okay with that. However you should ask them once before by writing to them.
Generally, this is related to available test dates, so b-schools are reasonable about it.

Anujkumar2401, Did you touch base the school on this? Do they allow to submit TOEFL after submission deadline?

a2zyamini yeah I went with that approach and none came up in the end, but it helped me get into the mentality of planning through examples. Its really tough to tell how it went, during the practices I kept looking away from the camera because it didn't feel like I was really talking to someone, so I stuck something next to the camera to get my attention, hope it worked!

Trying to decide if it would make me feel better or worse if I could watch back my actual answers...

2 Questions:
30 seconds to prepare
90 seconds to answer

Example questions here:
https://gmatclub.com/forum/compiled-video-interview-questions-for-foster-school-of-business-257878.html

I got asked the two below (not exact phrasing, but close enough)

1. Tell us about your most significant achievement at work and why it was impactful for you
2. Tell us about a time you have had to show determination and tenacity at work and what was the outcome
