Hi,

I hadf my interview yesterday.. It went decent ( I think so.. ) It was taken by one of the directors. She asked questions regular questions like why MBA as this point in time, Why Jones, Whats the short term goals, Why transition from company to other , etc..

I will be hearing from them on Apr 6th. I hope i get through with a good scholarship. Fingers crossed.

Hello mudiduange,

Did you apply in R2 to Rice Jones? I have applied in R3 and tomorrow is my interview. Can you give me some pointers in cracking the interview? Also is it correct to talk about Scholarships in the interview. I am from India and without substantial financial aid i would not be able to pursue my MBA.



Hey, there,

Don't worry about the interview. The question asked in the Rice interview are very typical. Just take it easy! If you can be admitted by Rice, you need not to worry too much about money. I know that almost everybody admitted will get a large amount of money.

Good luck!

I know that Rice normally starts their acceptance calls prior to the final deadline, it looks like last round the deadline was Friday and they started calls on Tuesday... Does anyone have an idea of when they might start calls this round? Just want to know when to start the anxiety :wink:

Hi,
Hope you all are doing great. I had my interview with Rice few days back and waiting for the results eagerly.Since its R3, i am worried about the scholarship. I had few questions regarding the financial aid n sponsoring my MBA.

1. Can you tell me what are the different options for financing my MBA in Rice ?
2. Will I be able to take any part time job in Rice University such as computer lab management, teaching assistant etc. HOw difficult will it be to manage work and studies specially for someone who doesnt have management background. I am a softwrae engineer from India?
3. Can i get any kind of loan in US or other scholarships?
4. The results will be out on Apr 6th. How much time generally does a student get to accept the offer.?

I am concerned whether i will be able to gather the reuire amount and hence bothering you with my questions.

Thanks in advance.

In, R3. They are early.
Only 23000 scholarship though. About 10000 below my debt free threshold....
In the letter they stated that "continuance of the scholarship is dependent upon maintaining good academic standing", anyone know how difficult to get scholarship for the second year?

There are many people in this forum who have applied to Tepper and Rice both? I want to know everyone's opinion on choosing between Rice and Tepper incase they get call from both the colleges and lets say same scholarship.

Did anyone hear from the admissions committee yet? Today is 6th and I am getting anxious.. I was told in the interview that the results will be out BEFORE the 6th.. Is there a link on their website to check the decision or is everyone intimated by email?

Any R5s for the MBAP out there? Submitted mine close to deadline. Applied with 2.9 undergrad GPA, 3.5 grad GPA, 620 GMAT and 2 years work experience. I think I have fairly weak numbers and am prepared to spend another year looking.

For those looking at next year, I had a meeting a week or so ago with Sue Oldham, the director of admissions at Rice, and she stressed work experience. In my case, she said I needed to address in my essays how someone with 2 years WE will be a resource for a peer with 5+ years. Just a heads up.

UPDATE: Emailed for interview. Hopeful!
