I had a question regarding decision notification for round 2. I know the notification is around 3/1, however i was wondering if the adcom accepts people well before this notification date? I have a friend who says his brother applied six weeks ago (i.e. round 2) and that he was accepted this past Friday into the Rice MBA program. Either a) he's lying (which i doubt because it was posted all over Facebook) or b) his brother is exceptional. I was hoping someone could provide perspective on this situation because it has me nervous that i did not hear anything.

@Tpatel5801: you may be talking about me. not sure if youre referring to my younger brother, Sagar, who posted all over Facebook (so much for being lowkey haha) about my admission acceptance. I completed my application 12/5/12 and recieved a phone call last Friday, 1/25 w good news :-D . They using rolling admissions, so if you dont hear anything after six weeks of your completed application date, then defintely email Rice and enquire. Hope that helps and good luck!!

Haha yes thank you for the response. I went to high school with Sagar, but I just got really nervous when I saw that. I had one other question: you mentioned you completed your app on 12/5. Was that the day you submitted your app or the day Rice changed your app status to completed (because I understand there is a delay from submitted to completed statuses)?

12/5 was the day I submitted by application as well as when it was marked completed, and I interviewed 12/17. From the back and forth I've had w Sue (Admissions Director), there are a lot of applications that came in for round 2, so its taking a little longer. I wouldnt stress out too much right now, esp if you submitted this month. You can always email Sue if you want to check on the status of your application.

Thanks for the information. You have been very helpful. I submitted on 12/3, but for whatever reason, it was not marked complete until 12/20. I then interviewed on 1/10 and have been anxiously waiting since then. I will definitely take your advice and email Sue. Thanks again!!

im assuming there probably was a gap in time for you bc they were still waiting on official documents (gmat, college records, etc) to come in. I had all that stuff sent in like a month before i submitted my application so there was a quicker turnaround on my app status than most. but yes, definitely email Sue, she responds quickly and is very helpful! good luck and keep us posted!

Yes you are absolutely correct. Also, i guess the holidays and the end of the semester did not help with processing my supplementary documents any faster. Thanks again for all your help, and i will definitely keep everyone posted.

I interviewed today, and I was told that I would know in 2-4 weeks from today.

Hey guys!

Its been a while since I've posted in this thread, but I'll offer my insight. I was accepted with $ round 1.

--They may not consider your application reviewable until your official documents (GMAT, College Transcripts, and Defintely Letters of Rec) are in. So I wouldn't take the GMAT a week before a deadline nor would I order my transcript a day before the deadline. I MAY be wrong on this.

--All of my official paperwork was received by AdCom a few days before the Round 1 deadline. I got an interview invite on the day after the deadline I believe.

--My interview was very pleasant. They are supposed to be with 2nd year students. Mine had some sort of miscommunication before it started and one of the directors interviewed me. We had a great conversation; she led it, with topics mostly jumping from stories and concepts about Rice to asking about me.

--The notification date was on a Friday. I was called on Wedensday evening. Shortly after, my decision appeared online, with a statement of my $$ offer included on my admissions letter.


I'm a Rice student now. The admission altered my status from MS to MS/MBA. So, next fall, when you meet an MS/MBA student, that is probably me, as there aren't very many MS/MBAs!

As a Rice student who has taken some MBA classes here and has gone through the admissions process, I would be glad to answer any questions that anyone has about Rice.

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.

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.

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.
