Have you visited RPI? I grew up in the capital region, and Troy, NY is not somewhere I'd voluntarily spend time.

Where do you want to be location-wise? Most of the people I know who want to be in energy want to be in Texas, in which case Jones and Tulane seem like obvious choices. If you have no preferences though attend both admit weekends to see what school you feel better at.

Just received the verdict from RICE.they are not offering admission to me.
The only problem with Tulane is that the program cost is very high even after their offer of 60% fellowship in tuition fees.do you think one should invest such huge money and time at this time of recession.moreover RPI has one year MBA.
Although definitely Tulane is better ranked then RPI.
So there is confusion

It all depends on your goals, if you are switching careers to Energy then the 2 years might be worth it. But I agree, Tulane is expensive and they got caught lying about their stats to boost their rankings. Do you want to be in the South or the East?

I don't know much about RPI, but according to US News only 44% of graduates have jobs at graduation.

Tulane's ranking cannot be trusted because it was discovered that they were falsifying data. That renders all of their data obsolete.

Based on those two pieces of information you may want to try reapplying to Rice next year.

Is it too late to apply R3 to Mays, Cox or even Neeley? If you at least initially made it on the WL for Jones you probably stand a chance at the other Texas schools.

Mays is tough for internationals but I believe TCU or UTD would be solid choices. Best of luck.

Exactly, you should look into some other options like people have said. If not I'd suggest sprucing up your application and reapplying next year because those two programs are sort of considered bottom dwellers. The ROI will be very low.
