Got an interview Invite. Any idea how many people does Rice or any other similar ranked school invite? Whats the seats to interview ratio? 1:4? 1:3?

Rice has some 120 students.

Thanks !

Just finished my Zoom (virtual) interview. It lasted about 40 minutes, was with a 2nd year student.
The interview was very relaxed and in some way informal. It was mainly about getting to know me, my career and leadership experiences. I got asked the typical “why an MBA now? and why Rice?”

I enjoyed it, the interviewer was very friendly.

Do the interviewer have our complete profile or just the resume during interview.

It is a blind interview i.e. the interviewer will only have your resume for reference. He/she will not be aware of the other aspects of your application such as GMAT score or essays. The interview is very conversational and revolves around getting to know the applicant better. The interview is conducted by second-year students and the questions are very generic. The interviewer will conduct the interview in a very warm and friendly environment. Nothing to worry and go ahead and enjoy the experience.

Any international students here who have received admits (and planning to accept the offer)? I’m losing my mind over what to do next. Setting up a bank account, finding roommates, grocery supplies, etc. Anyone here who has figured this out? When is a good time to arrive? Orientation is on 5th of August for international students.

Round 1 applicants, when did you find out if you were admitted? Did they release everyone's decision on Dec. 15th or did they do it on a rolling basis?

Decision date deadline is on Friday, March 29. It's too early to communicate decisions. Stay put, hopes up.

Oh... I see. It's hard to tell because we don't know how many applications Jones received. It could be slow because they received many applications. So far, on the decision tracker, only 4 people were interviewed. Keep your hopes up.

To be very honest. I am not sure. A lot of people from R2 have been invited for interview. The problem with my app was that my recommender closed on recommendations 11 days after the R2 deadline of 5th January.

And R1 applicants weren't that active on this thread to give a good idea if late interview invites are sent or not. I think it would be safe to assume it is a ding for me

Think it would be good to have a WhatsApp Group for those admitted to the Class of 2021 at Rice (Full-Time) MBA program.

Can anyone create one and share the link here?

Someone also posted an admit from R1 waitlist yesterday. I PM'ed the person for confirmation and still waiting for a response. This wait has been really nerve racking but I guess we just have to keep our fingers crossed and hope for the best.

I confirmed the admit from R1 waitlist. Congratulations Nicky14. In my opinion, this means that Rice might continue with the trend of releasing R2 admission decisions way ahead of the deadline. I think we should start getting feedback anytime from the week of March 11. The wait has really been nerve wracking for me but guess I can only keep my fingers crossed and hope for the best :). Good luck!

Hello admitted folks! Here is the link to the unofficial Whatsapp group for the intake of 2019. Please join and introduce yourselves.

https://chat.whatsapp.com/BO0sISlk00Q9QhSPWhnQ12


There’s an official Facebook group as well. You’ll be added to the group by the admins from school I guess. That’s what happened in my case at least.

It's so quiet in here. I believe everyone is waiting patiently to hear back about the admission decision. I have a feeling R2 decisions will start rolling in anytime from next week, so the wait might be shorter than we think. Best wishes! :)
