  • John A. Byrne, P&Q Founder & Editor-In-Chief | Odds Assessment: 30%

    Not surprisingly, the sore thumb that sticks out in your profile is that undergraduate GPA at CU Boulder. You don’t provide a reason for why your grades were slightly less than 2.8 in a era of great grade inflation. Foster’s class average, by the way, is 3.3 to 3.4.

Foster’s incoming class is on the smaller side: About 120 a year with an acceptance rate of 36% that is sure to shrink as more candidates apply as the recession takes hold.

Foster is excellent for candidates passionate about sustainability (one of my clients is headed there this fall to pursue a career in Clean Tech) .
