think yall are reading way to much into the thank you cards (sent and/or recieved) being a good/bad sign for admission. its a good practice of etiquette being exercised. just saying o_0

good luck everyone!

I agree with Vnshah. The thank you card really means nothing. I received a handwritten one and the interviewer talked about some specifics I had mentioned about Texas/Houston during my interview. It was a nice touch. I don't think the person who interviews you can solely make the admit decision. It depends on the number of candidates who applied, the quality of the application pool etc etc. Needless to say the anticipation is killing me.

Agreed. I didn't get a thank you card but was admitted R1.

I agree with you completely. I know it varies, but does anyone have any information about what time of the day/what part of next week acceptance calls will start going out? I usually hate answering calls that aren't saved contacts because it usually ends with someone trying to sell me insurance or donate to their charity. I guess it would be safe to just answer all calls in the hope that one of them is from Rice.

Based on the posts from the previous round, it looks like calls will begin going out as early as Wednesday and Thursday, with the final notification email being sent to everyone on Friday the 1st.

Yeah, I agree and that is the feeling the interviewer gave me too.

I was looking at the stats for Rice from last year. It seems 4 out of 8 who interviewed received admits in Round 1 and 4 out of 5 and 4 out of 4 for R2 and R3 respectively.
rice-university-jones-2012-calling-all-applicants-120265.html?fl=similar

And 10 out of the 17 this year for R1
Again, I am not trying to read too much in to it but a small school like Rice is actually serious about you if you have been invited to interview.

The adcom I interviewed with said rejection notifications go out on 3/1 and acceptance notifications go out a few days leading up to and including 3/1. If I have to wait until 3/1 I will be extremely nervous.

I have not been interviewed yet, so does this mean its a ding for me??

This is directly from the Rice website:
Is an interview required?
Yes, but not all applicants will receive an invitation to interview. Once an application is completed, the Admissions Committee may request an evaluative interview. Interviews are granted by invitation only after all materials have been received and initially reviewed. If the Admissions Committee is requesting an interview, you will be contacted via e-mail. It is the responsibility of the applicant to confirm the appointment. Appointments which have not been confirmed will not be honored. You may contact us toll-free at 888-844-4773, at 713-348-4918, or at ricemba@rice.edu.

Best of luck to everyone!

Ace,

Did they send you an email or did you check on your own accord?

Keep your eye on the prize, bud. Try to improve your stats any way you can, and apply again next Fall.

No news for me yet.

I just went in and checked the status of the application. There was a link at the bottom of the page saying a decision had been made. Link led to a 'denied' letter. I was not informed via email.

I am not applying again man, I am an older candidate and I thought I was a great fit, Interview went well (atleast in my head) Now I am backtracking and thinking if I should have answered questions differently. I have a McCombs interview in a couple of days and this has shaken me.

Ace,

Are you applying to Mccombs MBAP? Just curious, as I am.

I applied Rice MBAP, but I have not heard anything yet... My interview was almost 4 weeks ago. I applied Round II.

Thanks,
Theron
