In 6 days, all of us full time applicants for round 1 will know our fate. Nervous.
In past years, accepted applicants got phone calls 0-2 days before the deadline, while rejected applicants found out their status via the web portal.
For us, that means to hope for a phone call Wedensday to Friday next week! Good luck to all.

Are you looking at other schools in TX? I actually am in the Pac NW and will be commuting wherever I go, so other top choices are in CA...

I am also waiting for a few other schools to respond - one in particular but if I don't hear from them next week, I'll put down the deposit at Rice myself.


Hello laidmn,
Have you already got an admit from Rice? I thought that they are going to release the decision this Friday.

Yes, but for the MBAP Program (and not the full-time).

Dude, that's just still more scary! It's Tuesday and now I will be staring at my cell for don't know how long! I have been nervous all week long, and this is just more anxious. It is so difficult to focus on work with the admission decision on mind!!!

Interview went well.. now eagerly waiting for the result.
When did you submit your application? They said the university was shut for thanksgiving on the 22nd and the 23rd. You may get the call anytime soon.


Didn't get asked for an interview till date. I remember from one of their online sessions that interviews were not mandatory, so keeping my fingers and everything crossed. I inquired and they said all required interviews were done. So in three days time we will know our decisions. Toughest period of applying to colleges!

The first calls might just come out tomorrow. Based on previous Rice forums on gmatclub, international applicants seem to start finding out first.

Good luck to everyone again!


Hey texigan - Good Luck to you too. Tomorrow is the D-day... really nervous. Rice is a great program and perfect for my career goals. However, the really small class size makes the program very competitive for international candidates.

Good Luck Everyone!!!

And I guess that someone is me.. I'm in! And calls have started. I may have gotten my call earlier because I am dual MBA/MS... So please don't get discouraged! I wish each and every one of you the best of luck. You all worked hard on your application... I again hope you all make it and i have the priveledge of networking and learning with all of you for the next 2 years.

I recieved a call 10 minutes ago. Accepted with a scholarship. I was suprised, I thought that my interviews went poorly. (I was asked to do an online interview in addition to in-person one that I did at Rice).
