Hey, I just interviewed. And, this is crazy. But, gave Rice my number. Said, hey Jones call me maybe? And, all the other schools try to chase me… Latino lawyer with a 730 GMAT, 3.63 UGPA, and worked for two NFL teams...

Also, interviewed this morning with Carnegie Melon, and have been invited by Vanderbilt and UVA to do so as well… Haven’t heard back from Stanford or four other Consortium schools… But excited Rice phoned me an acceptance…

Still waiting to see which school offers the most scholarship money, and didn’t ask Jones whether one would include in the admission packet... Love Rice a lot, but gotta matriculate where top dollar is offered... Anyways, good luck Owl MBA hopefuls...

Hi All !!!!

Congratulations to fellow classmates who have got the admit news !!!

Best of luck to all who are waiting or are yet to apply .

For all who are admitted ---- The best place to get to know each other and break the anonymity would be to join a group.

Request all admitted candidates to join the group " Rice MBA Class of 2015 " in LinkedIn . The group has been started by Benjamin Guest of the admissions office.

Hope to get to know ya all better !!!!

Would be applying to Rice in R2. Thought that Rice is a safe school but after looking at some dings would have to think about the school carefully.

Congratulation to every one admitted. And best hope for R2 those decliened.

Hi rrossjd, thank you for sharing the story and the info early in this thread. And as a big sports fan, hope be your classmates next fall.

To all those posting of scholarship offers communicated alongside your decision results, I owe an immeasurable debt of gratitude. By sharing your gpa/ gmat/ work profiles, you’re really helping me make more informed decisions about my future. It's my first time with a 730 and 3.63, not wanting to put out so easily.

In a heartbeat, I’d have put down the deposit to attend Jones but for the new info communicated in this forum setting. To those passed upon by Jones, take inspiration in my story. Declined by Rice via an early decision app with low SATs scores and a non-honors hs gpa, I went onto graduate magna from Vanderbilt.

Like Vandy, Emory Law saw beyond my 59th percentile LSAT score. Now a Texas attorney with a 96th percentile GMAT result, I am what so many schools want but was too stupid to see it until now. For anybody not getting into Jones, I’ll gladly be the help never present in my past. Just send me a private message.
