It sounds like at least three of us are from Seattle.

Who is living in the Seattle area now?

I agree, improving the image of the school can only help students and alumni.

Cool and overcast, but the weather forecast says that you may get some sun on Tuesday. Don't hold your breath.

Me too. When did you interview at the U? Did you initiate it? (forgive all the questions).

I submitted my Foster application last week for the R3 deadline, but have not interviewed. The rest of my aps were in for R2.

westsider is right about the interview. they emailed me with instructions on how to set up an interview. you must be invited. And, the deadline was january 15, so i don't think we are in the same round. you won't hear from them until a few weeks after the last deadline.

I did mine on campus (of course, campus is a 20 minute bus ride from my Apartment AND my Workplace). If you haven't been to the campus/Seattle I would recommend interviewing on campus so you can check out the area. A couple of remarks:
-The interview will almost certainly be PAINFUL. I'd say this is the consensus(please correct me if anyone had a pleasant interview). I don't know that you will gain much by being here in person FOR THE INTERVIEW. If you are familiar with the area/campus, just do one over the phone. (Seriously, I have had phone interviews with people who speak English as a third language that were warmer and more human than my in-person interview).
-Seattle is BEAUTIFUL, and a great, vibrant, young city.
-The UW Campus is BEAUTIFUL. Great location too.
-Foster is ugly. Seriously. If it is important to you to have a new, comfortable building... think twice. They are starting on new buildings, but they wont be done for a couple of years. This means we get to deal with the noise, without getting to use them. (I know this sounds shallow, but some people have a real image of what they want B-school to be. Right down to the beautiful buildings many b-schools have - and that Foster WILL have in a couple of years)

In conclusion, if you are fmailiar with seattle/UW/Foster, just do a phone interview. If not, Come out in person. You deserve a nice vacation after doing all of that hard work on applications!

Could you please expand on how the interview was so painful? I would love to know all the questions that are asked during the interview so I can start mentally preparing myself. I plan on applying to UW this fall.

Also, could you share your GMAT score/GPA/employment history/etc.? It would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks!

Well, I just finished my interview on campus earlier this week. I got to the campus a few hours early so I could visit a few of the centers that they had. It was a great choice. I had the time to not only talk to a lot of the UW MBA staff, but several of them asked me the basic questions about why UW, why an MBA, what do I do now, etc. It was a great way to learn more about the program, my interviewer, and the career prospects after my MBA. The people that are there are more than happy to answer any question and were extremely nice and energetic. Overall I had a great interview experience.

What is your biggest professional failure?
Assume you are interviewing for a position with a firm, and there are 9 other applicants who have recently received their MBAs. How would you convince the hiring manager to hire you?
Why an MBA? Why now? Why with UW?
What do you think our expectations are of UW MBA students?
What would you do if MBA program did not exist?
Describe a day of an MBA student
What has been your best experience with a team? Worst? Why?
Define Professionalism
Put yourself in the admissions seat, what is the weakest part of your application, and then argue why we should see through that.
Given that your work experience is slightly less than others, what do you think will be the determining factor for someone to hire you over other more experienced applicants with similar MBA degrees for a job after completion of your MBA degree?
If there is no MBA, what is your plan?
What do you think your chosen companies will hire you instead of other candidates?
What can you contribute to our program?
What do you do for fun?

Hope this helps you out and anyone else that will be interviewing.
