Hi all!
I have received an interview call yesterday. I am a R2 applicant. Any advises considering such late invite?


You'd most likely be interviewing with a 2nd year student. So bring your A-game. You need to let the student get the feeling like "I'd want to be class mates with you"

Aside, know your resume and be able to logically explain your career choices.

Any new updates regarding admit or other decisions?
Less than 2 weeks, so may be next week they will let a few people know of their decision?

I contacted my contact person at the school and per what I was told, seems no other information till decision date!!

Rice is a rising star, though local. I'd love to go there as I have family there.

I know I've mentioned this in another applicant thread, but I know it's much easier to keep your expectations low so that you're not disappointed (trust me - I'm well versed in this exercise as a Rockets/Astros/Texans fan :| ). There has been one round of acceptances for a school that traditionally doesn't release decisions that early.

Additionally, to quote /u/mje2007 on the previous page :

I’m a current student and an admissions ambassador at Rice. Don’t fret, that was just a first wave. Our Admissions Officers are still reviewing applications and we are still conducting interviews. More waves of decisions will be coming out between now and the official decision date. Don't lose hope!

Best of luck to everyone!"


Suffice to say, I don't think anyone should really be feeling discouraged yet (although the clock is ticking slowly for me since the three schools I interviewed with will be releasing decisions over the next week and a half....ugh.....could not go any slower....)

Thanks FreshlySnipes for the sage advice. I should be a little patient and a little more hopeful. All may not be lost.

Does anybody know if we should be expecting calls in the next few days? Or is Rice going to take a page out of UT's playbook and not release any decisions until the deadline?
