Hi all,

I had my interview on 19.01.2018 10:00 AM CT (9:30 PM IST) with an MBA candidate from class of 2018.

The interview was great. My interviewer was a genuine and humble fellow which made things easier.

He asked me for a 60 seconds elevator pitch...and then followed it by 3-4 questions related to my experince in social engagement and community service, which I had mentioned in my resume....Then he asked the typical.."Why MBA"..."Why Rice" questions.....

The interview was very conversational...I felt much comfortable specially after bombing my Cox interview the evening before on 18th..

I think the key is to reherse your answers for typical questions well and be clear about your goals and how will Rice MBA help in this regard...

All the best to all those who are going to be interviewed... :-)

Received interview invite. Following this forum and I have a feeling that Rice interviews most of their applicants; getting a spot in the class of 120 gets even harder :suspect

Congrats on your invite. Let us know how it went.
I am still waiting for my interview invite. I dont think Rice interviews all applicants but only a few shortlisted ones.

introduce yourself or
Walk me through your resume or
One min elevator’s pitch
what does team work mean to you
can you give me an example of you leading a team
can you give me an example when you are not a team leader
can you share a life changing moment
Tell me about a conflict faced at work place
Tell me about a time when you solved a challenging task and what was the learning
Why MBA? Why Rice?
Why you?
What are your short and long term goals?
Give me an example of leadership
How do you work in a team effectively?
What clubs/organizations/activities are you interested in participating in?
Lastly, he asked for any queries I had for him

Hope it helps!!!

Does Rice interview all applicants? Can someone post about their Rice interview experience? Who conducted the interview, what were some of the questions etc.?

Don't worry too much about your GMAT score. I have a score of 600, but I got an invite. They take a holistic look at the application.

All the best!

I'm doing an in-person interview on Friday; I'm glad it's almost here. I'd have interviewed when round 2 interviews started 2 weeks ago if I hadn't already committed to other obligations these past two Fridays.

I also applied on the deadline and just got the invite yet. Last year too, when I was WL till the end, it took about a month before the interview invite showed up in my inbox.
I'd say to those, who are waiting, don't worry, at least, not yet.

Rice has one of the lowest ratio for female/male in the class. So yeah, they look at the whole application package. And then in the end, except for a few exceptional cases, it is more about stats.
Not trying to discourage anyone, but it is in general a trend at any school.

Schools have been raising their average GMAT to get better ranking so that is hardly surprising, especially if you are from overly represented group.
