How did you people converted your CGPA on a scale of 4? WES doesn't provide a conversion tool for a CGPA on a scale of 10 for Indian students! Which conversion chart should I use?

I got the waiver after visiting the MBA fair as well. But when I go for application submission it still shows Application fee of $125 to be paid by credit card or check. Was it the same for you? or does it say that your application fee is paid?

Regarding the video essay, when you login to likelive, you can go "Manage videos" section and see that your video is already uploaded with a green tick mark.

Thanks

I can see the green tick. after the encoding and upload..do we need to do anything else for the video to be sent to the school.
If you are facing issues regarding waiver..write to the Rice Admissions before submission. I think the waiver is not applied to your application.
After the MBA Tour, once you start your application, you need to write to them saying you have started the application and they should apply the waiver now.
I did not get the application fee page at all.
Check with the admissions team ASAP.

Hi there, thanks for being here to let us know the things happening at Rice. I am international MBA applicant and wanted to know about the job prospects of an international MBA student. I know that few selected companies hire international students but if they do hire and the student doesn't get H1B in lottery based system, then how these companies deal with this international student (for example relocation to some other country or something else etc).....Your input will give us clarity on US job market. I myself have lived for sometime in Houston in the the past and liked the city. Request your opinion.

Thanks, Vishal

Crazy fast processing, I must say.

Had mine yesterday over Skype. My guy was very relaxed. It's a second year student so have some questions about the school ready. It's a great opportunity to ask questions and it's always good to ask some good questions at the end of the interview. The interview questions themselves were pretty common: Resume walk through. Why MBA? Why Rice? He asked me what concentrations I was planning on pursuing. He asked me to describe a time when I had to deal with a team member that posed issues etc. Nothing really caught me off guard. Like usual, practice the typical B school interview questions, do your research on Rice specifically and have questions ready to go!

It'd be an honor, privilege, and a wonderful opportunity if I received admittance there. My decision of where to go will be based on which schools accept me, scholarship amounts if any, and career outlook post grad. It'll be a tough, tough decision if I got admittance at multiple places.

Anyway good luck on your interview and hopefully we are both at Rice next year :)

Hi

I have received some inquiries regrading the school interview. My interview at that time was very basic. Why Rice? Why MBA? Why now? My strongest suggestion is to know your stories. I would love to help out anyway I can. However, I am pretty tight with classwork as we are approaching Thanksgiving. The weekend is the best time for me to answer your inquiries. Please also pm for my email as I don't often log in gmatclub. Thank you.

Admissions Deadlines: What do they mean?  [#permalink]

FROM Jones(Rice) Admissions Blog: Admissions Deadlines: What do they mean?
Image
Katie Radcliffe
Associate Director of Admissions

With the Round 1 application deadline two weeks behind us, you may be wondering what to make of all of these dates.  Here are my answers to some frequently asked questions about deadlines:

Q: Are the application deadlines the same for all three MBA programs (Full Time, MBA for Professionals and MBA for Executives)?
A: Applications to the Full Time MBA program are evaluated in four decision rounds. This means that, based on when you submit your completed application package, your application will be evaluated in the corresponding round.

Applicants to the MBA for Professionals and MBA for Executives programs are evaluated on a rolling basis.  This means that the evaluation process will begin immediately when your application package is complete, regardless of when you submitted.

Q: What do the decision dates mean?
A: As Full Time applications are evaluated in rounds, each round comes to an end on the corresponding decision date.  All applicants to the Full Time program will be made aware of their admissions decision on the same day--the decision date--by phone call or email.  For example, if you have submitted your complete application package on or before Monday, January 5th, 2015, you will receive your admissions decision on Friday, February 27th, 2015 (and not a day sooner).

Applicants to the MBA for Professionals and MBA for Executives program will be made aware of their admissions decision roughly 4-6 weeks after they have submitted all of their application materials.  
 
Q: I will not be able to submit one or two parts of my application before the deadline.  Can I still be considered in the current decision round?
A: With rare exception, a Full Time MBA applicant will only be considered in the current round if their completed application, essays, resume, transcripts, letters of recommendation, GMAT or GRE scores, and optional video have been submitted on or before the corresponding deadline.  If you have an extenuating circumstance that will prevent you from submitting an application material by the deadline for the round in which you wish to be considered, please let us know.  We are more than happy to advise you on any unique situations regarding your application materials.  You can reach us at +1 (713) 348-6154 or ricemba@rice.edu.

Applications to the MBA for Professionals and MBA for Executives programs are evaluated on a rolling basis, so it is not necessary for applicants to adhere to the published deadlines.  The application deadlines are there to provide you with some parameters when thinking about this process.

Q: Can I submit other parts of my application package before actually submitting my online application?
A: Yes.  You may submit your application materials in any order you wish.  When we receive a piece of your application (e.g. letter of recommendation, GMAT score, optional video), we will start a folder for you, which will be held until the rest of your materials are submitted and your application package is complete.  Your application will then be evaluated in the current round (Full Time applicants), or will begin the evaluation process immediately (MBA for Professionals and MBA for Executives applicants).

Q: The application package requires several materials and feels a bit overwhelming.  Where should I start?
A: You may start wherever you feel most comfortable.  However, if you are looking for guidance, we recommend starting with GMAT or GRE preparation.  These entrance exams are given in a unique format and can be tricky if you are unfamiliar with them.  Start studying early (we recommend at least 100 hours of study) so that you can take the exam feeling prepared, and allow yourself enough time to retake it if you feel that your score does not accurately reflect your abilities.  Scores are valid for five years and we will only consider your highest score when evaluating your application.

Once you are satisfied with your GMAT or GRE score, decide who will write your letter(s) of recommendation and ask them.  Allowing as much time as possible for your recommender(s) to submit their letter will show that you respect their time, are serious about getting your MBA, and will generally put them in a better mood than if they were asked at the last minute. 

Q: I didn't apply in Round 1...do I have any chance of being admitted?
A: YES!  The Admissions Committee values fit with the Rice MBA Class of 2017 over any other criteria, including timing of submission.  Students are admitted and awarded merit-based scholarship in all four rounds.  We will never "run out of space" for qualified applicants who have proven that they will be an asset to their Rice MBA class.

Q: I am an international applicant...do I need to apply earlier?
A: Applications from prospective international students are accepted in all four rounds and are evaluated according to the same timeline as domestic applicants.  While international applications are still accepted and evaluated in the later rounds, we recommend submitting your application in the earlier rounds if possible.  Securing student visas, funding, housing, and generally adjusting to the idea of moving to another country can take longer for international students.  Applying early will ease the transition process, but only if you feel that your application represents the best and most accurate picture of your abilities.

Q: When is the best time to apply?
A: Whenever you feel that your application package best reflects your abilities.  Take the time to put together a quality application and then submit it as soon as you can.  Having a timely admissions decision can only help you get a jump start on planning the next two years of your life.
