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.

Last year the deadlines were as per below :
The 2016-2017 Rice / Jones Full-time MBA Deadlines are:

Round 1

Application Deadline: October 5, 2016

Decision Notification: December 15, 2016

Round 2

Application Deadline: January 9, 2017

Decision Notification: April 5, 2017

Round 3

Application Deadline: April 7, 2017

Decision Notification: May 10, 2017


But the results for R2 started coming out on and around 13-Mar-17.

So, we can hope a similar turnaround time this year as well.

Plus if I am not wrong even the R1 results were early by a couple of weeks..
R1 admits can confirm that ...

Hope that helps.

Do you think it matters whether an alum or second year interviews? is one more difficult than the other? Some schools im applying to have the option of both

Also kind of wondering if student ambassadors have an influence in the admissions process, I've spoken to a variety of student ambassadors and wonder if they play any role or are asked up for their advice/viewed positively that you are reaching out

Hey,

I had my interview on 2/2 through zoom.

As was the case with everyone else, I had a second year took the interview.
1. Walk me through your experience
2. Why MBA?
3. Conflict situation and how you resolved it.
4. Why Rice ?
5.Questions for me .

30 mins, there were follow up questions on each of the questions

I can confirm that most R1 applicants who got in learned of the decision a week before the date. But others who were dinged or waitlisted heard on Dec 15th.

Having said that it could be due to the lower application numbers in R1 vs R2. So even if you don't hear a week before R2 announcement date dont be diacouraged.

Lower no. of applications in R1 ??? I too had a similar understanding but after looking at the GMATClub data, I seriously doubt that !!!

Its almost the same !!!
