Hi Texigan, could you explain how the wait list at Rice works?
I've been waitlisted at Rice but the letter do not say if I can send more information to enhance my application.

Thanks

If it's not a problem, would you mind clarifying which Round you applied and when you received your letter?

rodrigomezt - the protocol is to wait to send the ad com anything until they specifically ask for it. Usually they will request more information as the next round's deadline approaches. An example - McCombs asked its waitlisted R1 candidates to submit a video interview a couple of weeks ago.

Hope this helps.

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.


Ha. This reminds me of a friend--- applied for PhD and rejected from Rice, UT, and Baylor. Two years later, has interviews for PhD with Columbia, Stanford, Duke, and Northwestern and was waitlisted at Rice. Goes to show the admissions process can be fairly arbitrary and you really shouldn't take it too personally.


Does your friend also have massive law school debt and prefer to stay in Houston to be close to the family he loves so dearly? If so, I’m very much similar to your friend.

If Rice Jones offers me a scholarship today, I’ll likely then decline the full-ride Vandy Owen made and potential Consortium fellowship to Yale SOM or Texas McCombs.

How does your friend intend to proceed? What would you do in such a circumstance? And, why did you ultimately select the Rice Jones School over your other options?

Did anyone else receive a hand-written note from your interviewer after the interview? Basically said we are here to answer any questions about your application, it was a pleasure to meet with you, appreciate your sincere interest in our program, etc.

I received one within a week after interviewing too. I nearly had a heart attack when i saw a thin square envelope in the mail from Rice. I thought the fact that it was hand-written was a nice touch.

I guess its standard practice now? Have you been accepted or rejected yet? Did anyone who was accepted or rejected also receive the letter after interviewing?

Maybe it is standard. The writing seemed a little scripted. I haven't received a decision yet.

Victorinox,

I noticed you have a Ding from Rice. Is that accurate? If so, do you know what went wrong? Any light you can shed will be helpful for the rest of us. I am also a little confused by the timeline Did you apply for R2 Jan 7 deadline and you already received a Ding? thanks!

I am going to throw this question to everyone who is in on this thread, In your opinion, what is the acceptance rate for the interviews. 40, 50%?

I was interviewed on 1st of October when the Assoc Director of admissions was visiting India. Of the 30 resumes they received they called 4 for the interview. Even though the interview went very well, I kept procrastinating writing my essays, missed the first deadline...was about to miss the 2nd deadline (reason: complacency after 3 admits) but since my application fee was waived off...I hurriedly wrote the essays and submitted it on the 7th of Jan... 1st Feb was the deadline to submit the fees at Olin, so I started pestering the adcom (phone & email) to give me a decision before 1st of February...finally received a ding on the 31st January... I think my essays were the weakest link... not much thought or effort went into it

or may be they got the idea that you had other options on the table and would not consider their school seriously. I think this is the fear for a lot of schools in the 10-30 range.

That's a quality problem to have my man (i.e, multiple acceptances from other schools). But I am curious how you approached jones and request them to make a decision before their deadline date, as in, What pretext did you give them? I am curious, thanks

The truth shall set you free my friend... I told them 1st i dropped in a mail that I have to submit my fees by the 1st of Feb at another school and i don't want to do it unless I hear from Rice, Then I called them up and finally on the 31st they sent in a ding mail.
