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.

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!




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.

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... :-)

Hi

I have my Zoom interview tomorrow at 9.30 pm IST. But I haven't received any communication from Rice since the day I booked this slot. I haven't used Zoom before. Should I wait for the until tomorrow or drop in an email?

Hey, you will not get any communication. The interviewer will contact you just a few minutes before interview...

I had my interview on 2/2 . All the questions were the standard ones, which were already discussed here. When the interviewer explained the next steps, the whole process felt bit strange. He said that he will fill out my report and he had been interviewing people since morning and there were many more interviews lined up. The way he explained the process, it almost felt like the interview at Rice is more of an addendum to the application rather than a filtering component. Am i the only one who felt like this?

I had my interview yesterday and had a similar takeaway. While my interviewer was very kind and easy to talk to, I very much felt more like a guinea pig than an MBA hopeful. It was by no means a negative experience, but I left unsure as to how it would affect my chances at admission.

My experience with Rice and all other schools which I converted was that the interviewers pretty much straight up told me they're going to recommend my candidature. While at Rice it was a current student, my other experiences were with alums or adcoms. I believe this difference in exposure (for current students vs adcoms) as far as dealing with admissions interviews is what leaves an impression of our interview not being such a differentiating factor but I do believe that it does act as a filtering component.
