    @seatac I chose marketing as my option. Thank you for your response! helped a lot. I had another question though (don't know if I'm spamming the thread or not :/ sorry) but is it better to take CMU 301 or ENGL 281 for the writing class? And any classes you don't recommend taking in the same quarter?

    It depends on your wants and needs :-) BCMU 301 w/ HOCHBERG should be good. I doubt it would be writing-intensive though; there will be a good part of speeches, teamwork, and presentations. BCMU 301 with Dimeo is also interesting. Dimeo is a very good person and an interesting lecturer. It's not writing-intensive at all. However, there are two speeches, a quarter-long team project and a presentation in the end. BCMU 301 is a very good class to get to know people (many of whom happen to be from the business school also, of course). However, it's hard to beat the curve in this class. Every point counts.

    I don't know how it goes for marketing, but I wouldn't recommend taking, say IBUS and MKTG 301 in one quarter because both of them involve a lot of reading. And so does MGMT 300. Also, try not taking classes with a lot of teamwork in one quarter: MGMT 300, IS 300, and, I believe, IBUS. Unless you have a lot of free time after school and meeting with your team won't be a problem.

    I do recommend taking Apurva Jain for OPMG 301 this Winter. He is a good teacher. The class doesn't require a textbook. I spent on average 2-3 hrs/week on this class and got a very good grade.

    @yellowsmith 5.5 in wsa? That's amazing bro! You must write really good essays. I think we have pretty close stats on gpa. See you in foster next quarter! I scheduled an appointment at the end of next week (apparently the schedule is too full to fit me into anytime in between) and I am going to have my classes for winter figured out.

    @seatac I saw you in a lot of threads when I was googling around! I am excited to see you here. I am a finance major. Do you have any suggestions for me about course taking and professor choosing? Thanks!!

    @NoyamHugz, I decided not to convert this thread into a conversation about Foster from a thread where people discuss their decisions :) I have my answer here: http://talk.collegeconfidential.com/university-washington/1575004-foster-advices.html#post16556444

    Does anyone who is accepted to Foster for Winter 2014 know when the orientation dates will be? I am not in Washington, but would like to make sure I am back in time in case I get in. :)

    @marslove3
    On the decision letter, it's on Wednesday, November 13, 2013, from 3:30 - 4:30p.m. at Paccar Hall, Rm. 392. I am pretty sure that this is for uw natives only. Yours may be held within a week of the decision notification date.
