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.


How did you qualify for an application fee waiver?

FROM Jones(Rice) Admissions Blog: JGSB faculty research finds that "disgust may lead to unethical behavior..."
Image
Vikas Mittal
J. Hugh Liedtke Professor of Marketing
...but there's a way to wipe the slate clean.

Many of us have heard the proverb, “Cleanliness is next to godliness.” Though not a direct quote from the Old Testament of the Bible, it seems to have stemmed from some of the book’s admonitions to avoid the “unclean.” These warnings likely served the purpose of helping people avoid contaminants that spread disease. The unclean also tends to elicit the visceral emotional and physical response of disgust.

People are hard-wired to respond with disgust, and it doesn’t take much to do it. Just watching a gross scene from a movie or thinking about products like diapers can elicit the emotion. And that emotion influences people to become more selfish: They focus on taking care of themselves, like moving away from the offending object or substance, for example. Disgust triggers an important self-protective mechanism. But can self-protection go too far?

Vikas Mittal, the J. Hugh Liedtke Professor of Marketing of the Jones Graduate School of Business at Rice, along with a team of professors from Smeal College of Business and W.P. Carey School of Business, demonstrated in previous researchthat when people feel disgusted, they view others’ unethical behaviors more harshly. But they wanted to take the study of disgust’s effects a step further and sought to explore how the emotion might influence people’s own unjust behaviors. They also explored what can be done to undo the influence of disgust.

Two days ago, I had my interview with a second year student. Laid back and conversational.
However, I am a bit skeptical how seriously second year student's evaluation is taken in comparison to an Admission Director conducted evaluative interview.

Any thoughts on this point?

i wont overthink that..Jones has this policy that almost all the interviews are taken by second years..
in some schools, interviews are taken by alums.
Thats not something on which schools would differentiate..its something how school is built..how they work.

FROM Jones(Rice) Admissions Blog: Movin' On Up!
Rice MBA ranked No. 25 in US Image
Rice MBA program moves up 9 in
Bloomberg Businessweek's national ranking
HOUSTON – (Nov. 11, 2014) – The Master of Business Administration program at Rice University’s Jones Graduate School of Business is ranked No. 25 (up from No. 34 in 2012) in Bloomberg Businessweek's new ranking of the best full-time MBA programs in the nation.

The rankings include 85 U.S. schools and 27 international schools. To determine which business schools offer the strongest education and best prepare MBAs for their careers, Bloomberg Businessweek ranked 112 full-time MBA programs on three measures: a survey of student satisfaction (45 percent of the ranking); a survey of employers who hire those graduates (45 percent); and the expertise of each school’s faculty, measured by faculty research in esteemed journals (10 percent).

The biggest contributor to the Jones School's rise in the overall rankings was the positive assessment by employers who hire the school's graduates, with employers and recruiters ranking the program No. 31 this year (up from No. 43 in 2012). Intellectual capital also rose to No. 12 (up from No. 21 in 2012).

The Rice MBA Full-Time Program provides students with a comprehensive MBA learning experience that combines specialized course work and real-world experience to improve and amplify their strategy, leadership and creative credentials. The program features innovative classes, expert faculty and a diverse group of candidates who often become colleagues for a lifetime.

The Jones Graduate School of Business is consistently recognized by several rankings publications for its programs, including the Rice MBA, Rice MBA for Executives and Rice MBA for Professionals. For more information on Rice MBA programs, visit http://business.rice.edu.

Don't worry about it abilash10. I did not even submit the video and got an invite. Hope for the best !!

Btw, I just had my interview. It was taken by a second year student who seemed to be just going through the rounds . I felt at a point he was about to yawn - not because I am a boring candidate (I would like to think so), but he seemed pretty bored with the process.

Guys, I am a re-applicant at Rice and I submitted my application in R1. However, I have not received any interview invite yet. Does this mean I am not going to get one?
