This will certainly help especially with those 2 promotions. It would be great if you can put up some leadership stories from here

I am a Foster Alum (grad of 2015) and would give you my 2 cents. Overall the profile is good, but you have to really show why you are fit for Foster School of Business. Foster values team work and definitely tries to see if you would be a fit for some of the comapnies in Seattle (Amazon, MS, TMobile etc).
