I know this is early, but do the final decisions all come out at one time?

I interviewed today with a 2nd year student. The interview was very conversational which both of us preferred. Questions and comments listed below. Cheers and good luck to all.

1. Walk me through your resume.
2. Example of a conflict you've worked through.
3. Why Rice.
4. Questions for him.

My interviewer did not have a similar background which I did not expect based on what I had researched so I would be sure to go over your resume and have a plan to explain anything that is rather technical. He explicitly did not ask about leadership experience given my 14 years in the military. We did find some common ground to discuss as his previous employer had contracts with my current employer and had worked on our account. I was also able to touch base with the admissions staff again and follow up to make sure all paperwork from my application was in order. Their admissions staff is super helpful and friendly. All in all a great experience.

Has anyone that applied round 2 received an acceptance call yet? I've already done my interview and received the handwritten note so just anxiously awaiting news.

Hi guys,
I interviewed with a 2nd year student yesterday. The questions were standard such as walk me through your resume, strength and weakness, leadership experience, why mba and why rice. the interview was conversational.
Fingers crossed!

Hi guys quick question - I just received an email from the admissions office about scheduling an advising appointment. I'm not sure if this indicative of my acceptance/rejected/waitlisted status at Rice (I interviewed a couple weeks ago). Has anyone else received this email? It might just be a purely automated email sent to all applicants, but I'm unsure. Thanks for the help.

Not even 10 mintues after I posted my last message I receive the same email. Looks like a computer generated email to all applicants.

Was it the mail from the adcom team assigning a admissions adviser?

Hi, there. I also got the similar email from adcom. I havent got the interview invite yet. Hmm. I am not sure what it means at all.

I got that advising appointment email and then in less than an hour another email with interview invite.
so the advising email is meant to just connect with your adcom officer - IMHO. But don't lose hope, invitations are still rolling out.

No, for Round 1 they started rolling 3-4 days before the deadline. On the deadline, it was all WL and dings.

Do they take another interview after interviewing with a 2nd year student? Not sure of the process.

I don't think there would be a second interview. I have given my interview and it's with an adcom via Skype.

The last time I checked ClearAdmit there have been two that were admitted this month, mainly because they were offered sizable scholarships and I'm sure the school wanted to know if they would accept or need to allocate the funding elsewhere. Based on R1 admits will roll out 3-4 days prior the the decision date (April 5th) and mainly dings and WLs will roll out on the decision date.
