TA89 - I wouldn’t let that get you down. From how the e-mail was worded, it could have even been a less hopeful sign. It was worded as that they hope to accept a few off the waitlist and then update everyone by June 1st. It didn’t word it as though they hoped to try to extend a spot to me. I am going to search past forums to see if I notice any patterns with this.

hey thanks for the motivation. I hope everyone who intends to join the program gets a call

Finally made it, with just about 22% of tuition as a scholarship.
I am so thankful for all those who helped me keep my hopes up.

As a cross admit, I have about a week to decide.

Let's enjoy this journey.

Have any R3 applicants heard anything from admissions? I understand the decision date was today, but still no word on my end. Rice is my first choice.

Just got news that I have been placed on the waitlist for Round 3 and that I would be admitted if space becomes available prior to the start of the fall 2018 school year. Is the waitlist typically pretty long? I guess I am trying to gauge my chances of actually getting off this waitlist in the coming weeks.

I literally made my decision just about 10 minutes back.
I am joining Tepper. So, there should be a seat available at Rice (and would free up some money too).

It was a hard choice. With scholarship at Tepper, KFBS was out of the race (still, I tried to ask them for some). Rice has an advantage for my career goals, but as an international, it also means a geographically limiting factor. Money wasn't an issue, given the difference wasn't much.
So, finally, it was where I saw myself and where I felt a better fit.

I wish you all the best.

Best of luck to you Hiren. I was at Career Services in McNair Hall this morning and thought of your pending decision. It's awesome to be in a position to make choices, and I'm glad you've found yours. May our paths cross again sometime, and I'll see you on LinkedIn!

Thanks a lot.
I was thinking of all the friends I made here but I may not get to meet in person. Some of us are already connected in LinkedIn and will share my profile in Admitted Students' Group. But something had to go, alas, can't be at two schools at once - and that would be expensive too :lol:

I just got the acceptance call as well. I had been on the waitlist for quite some time and almost lost hope, so I am glad to finally get some good news. I am glad I didn’t give up too cause I had studied more and retook the GMAT after being waitlisted also. Best of luck to you all!

When I spoke with them on the phone today, I didn’t get any info on that. But I know the e-mail update they last sent many about 2 weeks ago said they will be hoping to take a few off the waitlist and wrap everything up by June 1st, so that is a hopeful sign to me for anyone on the waitlist.

Hi everyone, I’m going to turn down my offer from Rice. So another spot should open up soon. Good luck!
