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

My references submitted their evaluation yesterday and within 45 minutes I got an email inviting for the interview.

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.
