One more query, is sending official scores - GMAT & TOEFL & official transcripts mandatory for application consideration or do these need to be sent on admission?

Rob Mark
Rice MBA Class of 2015
2014 ROMBA Conference
Organizing Committee
Rob Mark, Rice MBA second year student and member of the Organizing Committee for the 2014 ROMBA Conference, reflects on his time at the Jones School and his involvement with ROMBA.

Q: What attracted you to the Rice MBA Program?
 
A: Upon deciding to leave active duty military service I knew I wanted to work in energy and having grown up in Houston, TX I knew that Rice University's Jones Graduate School of Business was the ideal school to enable that goal. I was drawn to the small classes, non-competitive student culture, and impressive employment statistics of the Rice MBA program.

Q: How would you describe the Jones School culture?

A:The Jones School staff, students and faculty are all incredibly supportive and talented. Upon starting at the Jones School I was inspired by the quality of my peers, and since most all of your work in the first year is done in your small group of 4-6 team members, I was amazed at how much my peers enhanced the learning environment. I would never have survived the first year without the strong peer support, and that element is a cornerstone of the Jones School model.

Q: Has your involvement with ROMBA impacted your MBA experience?

A: It is often said that the real value in an MBA is the network you develop, and I believe that is absolutely true. Beyond the incredible group of peers at Rice who I am lucky to call friends, ROMBA allowed me to develop relationships with a robust community of incredible peers at schools from across the country. After attending ROMBA as a first year, I was so enthralled with its mission and the people I met that I joined a team of students from Tuck and Wharton to compete to be selected as the leadership team that would comprise the Organizing Committee for the 2014 ROMBA Conference in San Francisco. We were selected and successfully organized the best ROMBA conference to date. My experience with ROMBA has enriched my MBA and my career potential without a doubt.

Did you skip it, rrai243? I want to understand if it's possible to get in without completing it, even though it is only optional.

no..I did that part..Paige..the adcom generally starts reviewing your application from the video essay so if you can give an interesting picture of yourself before she even reads your essays its a good start..

I don't think it is necessary - I didn't do it. In fact, I wouldn't unless you feel like you present yourself well and it can be a strength to your application.

In for R2. I submitted the Video essay as I felt it will give the adcom a view of my communication skills.

Hello all! I am definitely interested in applying to Jones, but I know that Marketing isn't a strong suit for the program. Should I look for alternatives or apply next year as planned? I don't think I am great candidate for admissions so late in the cycle.
