Hi, guys, I finally decided to go with Rice today, was struggling between Rice and McCombs as well.



I was in the same boat and I feel confident that I made the right decision. What was the deciding factor for you?


Personally, ROI for Rice is higher than UT and I had visited both school, I like Rice better.

A bit off topic, but does anyone know when the R1 deposits are due? I couldn't find it anywhere on the website.

No idea about a background check but after I paid my deposit I got an email that showed up in my junk folder telling me to enjoy my free time now because I won't have much when classes start.

Ditto. I got the same email and when I enquired further once they would start processing international student documentation they would let us know through portals.

Anyone going to the second MBA admit event planned on April 12-13?

Also, is there a WhatsApp group for admitted students?

I had my interview a day before. Let's see what comes out of it and then I may.
BTW, you are admitted to KFBS too, what are your plans?
Why would you withdraw from McCombs?

Why would you withdraw from McCombs?

Wishing you the best for the result. And yes I have an admit from KFBS too but I'm going ahead with Rice. I come from Oil and Gas background and I'll be a much better fit at Rice. Coupled with the generous scholarship it wasn't a very hard decision for me.

As far as McCombs is concerned, It was always my second option behind Rice primarily due to location. I have a very good network in Houston due to my work and previous education in the US and hence I was always more interested in Jones to leverage the benefits a huge city like Houston offers.

Once I got the admit from Rice, I withdrew my application at McCombs.

Actually, I'm not on Facebook unfortunately. Would you be kind enough to either PM me or post the number of the group's admin here? I would be really thankful.

Thanks.
I too am from Oil and Gas - Canadian Oil Sands. I was in Houston (The Woodlands) for a majority of 2016 and have some network in Houston - old colleagues and of employers there.
Scholarship certainly matters.
I am still in a dilemma if I should get out of this industry or not. A difficult choice, but of course worth looking at it, in the scenario.
What is your field - enigneering, process or other side, or management / finance? I am from engineering background and have worked on both engineering and project management.

Thank you and yes I can totally understand your predicament. I also want to move out of oil and gas but want to remain in the broader energy industry. For anything to do with energy (renewables or non-renewables) Houston's the place to be hence I went ahead with Rice.

I am involved in operations in the oil and gas industry. Mostly work on unconventional shale reservoirs based out of northeastern USA. I like the challenges but looking to broaden my horizons now by transitioning into a more business oriented role.
