Are we supposed to receive an acceptance package? I remembered hearing about it during my call but I've not received anything in mail yet.

I received mine. It's the exact same acceptance letter you see online and some stationery.

Hello everyone!

Let's take the discussion to the admit thread here:

https://gmatclub.com/forum/calling-all- ... 55996.html

Round 2 applicants are probably finalizing their applications and will need their space :)

Good luck to all R2 and R3 applicants!

Hi,

Applied for R2 just few mins back. Good luck to everyone else applying.

Also got an Application fee waiver :) Not sure what the criteria is for that. Nothing too exceptional in my profile either lol.

I received an interview invite before my recommendation was submitted. They usually review the applications fairly quickly.

Hi,

Do we need to send in the official GMAT report for the initial evaluation of the application?

I did not see any requirement as such for Jones as yet.

Similar to you, I submitted on the 4th and received an unexpected fee waiver despite not meeting any prerequisites listed on the admissions guide. It was a pleasant surprise though!

You too!

Sure, I'm fairly non-traditional: GMAT 720, Undergrad GPA 3.53, 112 weeks with a majority spent in high school science education.

Not for the initial evaluation, though you will need to send official scores at some point. Self-reported scores should be sufficient to get things started.

Good luck! Don't worry about the interview, it's very low pressure and should be more like a conversation about your career goals and what you look forward to participating in at Rice. They just want to get a feel for how you will fit in with the class.

Well, I am starting to worry now. I applied for the R2 as well. But my GMAT is pretty low 650.

You can also check the interview feedback from R1 in the previous posts. It seems like they ask similar questions. Good luck!

I wouldn't be concerned this early. I truly believe, quoting their own application, admissions uses a wholistic approach to application evaluation. My GMAT score isn't the strength of my application, and many would say my work as an educator is undesirable. However, I was confident in my ability to use the entire application to tell my story and prove why I'm exactly where I'm supposed to be in life and how Rice University is a part of that vision. If I'm admitted, it will be a product of my life story, not a score.
