Why Foster?: In the Pacific Northwest, you really can’t beat Foster. It’s a fantastic school with phenomenal faculty, great students, and a close-knit community. Besides the great people, the new facilities are unrivaled and there are plenty of opportunities for students to get involved and meet other students with similar interests, no matter what those may be. Not to mention that Foster offers tremendous value, especially if you qualify for in-state tuition.
Over Summer Break I… will be a Summer Analyst in Deloitte Consulting’s Strategy & Operations (S&O) practice, based out of the Seattle office. Additionally, I will be taking the LSAT, GMAT, and hopefully be going on vacation sometime in September before school starts again.
After graduation, I plan to… work for a few years and then pursue a JD, MBA, or JD/MBA from a top-tier institution.
Advice to future students: Get involved and don’t be afraid to step out of your comfort zone. Foster and college in general is what you make of it. Going to class will get you your basic education, but taking advantage of all the student organizations, competitions, and events that Foster has to offer is what is going to enrich your business school experience and set you apart from the rest of your classmates. Your coursework is only one aspect of your entire university experience – don’t let everything else pass you by.
Favorite place to study: Gallagher Law Library. It’s the quietest library on campus and you get an entire table to yourself. As an added bonus, it’s right across the street from Foster.
Favorite place to eat on the Ave: Tough question, but I have to go with Thai Tom.
