Why is this place so quiet? Less than a month for R1 submissions. C'mon R1 folks, show yourself.

redskull1 Consulting recruitment is good at Rice. You can get in touch with the career service department for more info. I am sure they will be more than happy to help. You can also reach out to alumnus on LinkedIn. I know two people from the class of 2019 who got consulting offers, ome from McKinsey and the other from E&Y.

Best wishes!

I was thinking of applying for R1 but I'm gonna probably retake my GMAT (last score 690) before I apply. So, it looks like I'm going to apply in R2...

ParryB No, I am not. I will try my best to get a current student to chat with prospective candidates here sometime in the nearest future. Hopefully before R2 applications are due.

Did anyone receive an email from the admissions team post submission stating that they are excited to review your application and asking you to update them if there are further updates to your profile such as revised test scores, promotion etc.

One of my friends received such an email but I did not. I just received a standard confirmation email upon submitting my application.

Hey guys,

My university has a grading scale of 10. How do I convert my grades to a GPA of scale 4?
Did all international students convert their GPA for the application?
I just got an email from the adcom that I missed that GPA conversion and it needs to be done.

Yes you'll have to convert your grade to a 4 point scale for Rice. I used the WES free converter and attached screenshots of my conversion in the application.

I Completed my interview on 28th October. It was a pretty conversational interview and lasted for approx. 20 mins.

Has anyone else completed their interview and when should we expect to hear back from Rice?

The decision date is 6th December, any chance that they release before that?

Hello sharan05. Congratulations on completing your interview. Based on my experience and data from the previous years, Rice usually release results 1-2 weeks before the deadline. You should have a decision sometime later this month.

Hi Mizag,

Thanks for offering help and guidance. I applied in round 1 and completed my interview on 28th Oct. During the application process, I interacted with couple of international students and I could gather that recruiting was extremely challenging this year at Rice specially for international students. Would you be able to throw some light on that. I understand that the employment report for 2019 is still some time out. I have thoroughly enjoyed my interaction with Joe and the Rice team and am eagerly looking forward to receiving my admission decision.
