"My interview was with Alana McGee. Very conversational interview. Since she was a graduate of Foster's evening MBA, she kept sharing her experiences as well throughout the call. She had already gone through my essays and application so she didn't ask many of the general questions - like career goals, etc. I was asked a few profile-specific questions and then many behavioural ones. 1. Talk about your professional experience. 2. Why are you looking to pursue an MBA? 3. Plan B 4. You have already spoken about your goals in your essays. Tell me 1-2 primary reasons how you think Foster can help you achieve those. 5. What are your interests outside of work? 6. How would your teammates describe you? 7. TMAT when you had to persuade your boss for something they didn't want to do. 8. TMAT you failed at something. 9. What kind of a leader are you? 10. What biggest obstacle will you face during an MBA? 11. What do you bring to Foster? 12. Anything else you want to share? 13. Anything you want to ask me?"

"AdCom Zoom Interview - Round 1 Conversational tone although format was more like a regular behavioral interview. My interview lasted about 45 minutes including 10 minutes where I had two of my questions answered. My reviewer (AdCom member) was familiar with my entire application and confirmed that they had read my application front to back before starting our call. Retrospectively it looks like a lot of questions asked but the interviewer made it not too intimidating. I was also trying hard to keep answers concise to keep from rambling. 1. Can you describe your current company to me? 2. What's an example of a project you've worked on recently? 3. What is your career Plan B? 4. How would you be able to uniquely contribute to your class? 5. What leadership opportunities would you seek out on campus? 6. Why Foster? 7. What do you expect will be the most challenging part of the MBA? 8. What is a leadership trait you admire in others? 9. What type of leader are you? 10. Tell me about a time when you felt overwhelmed. How did you react? 11. What is the biggest risk you've ever taken? 12. Tell me about a time when you disagreed with your boss. How did you reconcile differences? 13. Is there anything we have not covered that you'd like to mention? 14. What questions do you have for me?"

"I had my interview with Amber Janke. The interview started lasted for about 45 mins. The interview started off a little abruptly. Most of my previous interviews were blind and mostly began with the interviewer asking me to introduce myself. However, Amber had access to my essays and applications and we went in deep right from the outset. A few of the questions asked were 1. What is your role at your present organisation? What does your day look like? 2. What do you like about your role at your present organisation? 3. What is a work achievement that you're proud of? 4. What is your motivation to do an MBA ( I fitted in short and long term goals there ) 5. What is your alternate career plan if your short term goal doesnt work out? 5. Why Foster? 6. How do you hope to contribute to the community during your time here 7. Any questions for me? I did not start the interview particularly well. However, I felt more comfortable as it progressed and was able to finish strong. Super stoked at the admit"

"I interviewed with Carrie. She kept it very professional and ran through her list of question without ceremony, at the beginning she was upfront that it would be like that and that she'd be taking notes so pardon if she wasn't looking at me. She didn't really respond to anything I was saying, not sure if my answers were not landing or that is just her interview style. Questions were same as below. I did somehow get tripped up on the question "what is professionalism to you?" so be prepared for that."

"Interview was friendly but a little less conversational than some other reviews mention... Overall it was fairly straightforward and between these debriefs and Ellin Lollis questions, there were few surprises... Lasted around 35 mins. https://ellinlolis.com/blog/washington-foster-mba-interview-sample-questions/ Here are the questions I can remember answering: Why an MBA? How do you plan to use your MBA? How will you stand out in using your MBA when applying for jobs after graduation? Why Foster? How will you engage the community at foster? When have you received criticism at work? What was the last compliment you received at work? When have you handled teamwork? How have you dealt with a co-worker that has different views/opinions about diversity? What questions do you have for me?"

"My interview was with Alexsis and she pretty much asked the questions that users have pointed out here. She did inform that she had gone through my profile but I didn't get any specific questions about it. Sharing the ones I received - 1. Why do you want to do an MBA? 2. Why Foster? 3. What are you most excited about from MBA? 4. What challenges do you think you will face here? 5. What is a piece of constructive feedback/criticism? 6. What was a professional compliment? 7. Describe a scenario when you had to work with minimal guidance? The interview lasted about 40 mins. I tried to make it conversational but it was a vain attempt. Looks like a lot of other candidates also had similar experience. I also sent her an e-mail after the interview, but didn't receive a response. All the best folks!"

"Interviewed with Kathleen Glazier from the AdCom. Not a blind interview. Q1. Walk me through your resume. Q2. What is a regular day at your job? Q3. What roles did you take in teams you have worked during your career? Q4. What are your plans after MBA? Q5. How will an MBA help you with these goals? Q6. Why did you chose Foster? Q7. How will you involve at Foster? Q8. How will you use the Career Management center for your internship or job search? Q9. Tell me about a time you got a negative feedback. Q10. Do you have any questions for me? (She answered in detail and asked 'Any other questions' 3 times and the last time I mentioned I don't really have any other question but can you tell me about the COVID situation at UW after answering which she ended the interview.) Interview went for 35 min. Not as conversational as some of the other debriefs mentioned, probably because I was giving really long answers. But it was still quite conversational."

"I had a lovely interview with an AdCom Counselor - interview lasted around 45 mins and was very comfortable. Here are the Q's I was asked (not necessarily in that order) - MBA/Foster Qs - - What skills are you trying to address from the MBA? - Why Foster? - Why now? - What roles and countries? [I was asked a Plan B since Product Management is popular and very competitive. There was also a Q around what countries might I be interested in which was probably in light of the recent visa troubles/restrictions in the US] - Short term and long term goals [More of a detailed form of the previous Q] - What can you contribute to Foster - What do you bring to Foster [I answered the previous Q from a clubs perspective, this one from my personal traits perspective] Behavioral Questions - - A time when you doubted yourself? - Three words your teammate would use to describe you - If you're not the lead on a team, what role do you like to take up? [This was fun - different from a standard "Tell me about a time.." format] - Time you disagreed with your manager? - Received feedback [Example was positive feedback] - Received 'constructive' feedback - Outside of work what do you do Overall, very conversational and as someone said on their debrief, if you spend some time reading through the past Q's from the debriefs here, you'll have ~90% of your interview covered :) For my more talkative peeps here - I am generally very talkative on interviews and the interviewer never made me feel like I was overextending my welcome. Hope that helps calm some anxiety!"

What challenges/opportunities do you expect to face at Foster and how do you plan on adapting to them? I was then able to ask Alexsis questions which she responded with very thoughtful insight into aspects of Foster's program that you can't necessarily read about on their website or forums. Overall, like others mentioned previously, the interview was very conversational and lasted 30 minutes."
