    I dunno if anyone would know this, but does a waitlist at Vanderbilt mean a rejection at Rice is likely? It's my understanding that Rice is a bit more selective and my essays were pretty similar to both schools.

    People have gotten waitlisted/rejected at Vanderbilt but accepted to Rice. Admissions are a crapshoot!

    Yeah I guess kinda. Well thanks! Would love to go to Rice, or get off the waitlist at Vanderbilt.

    Financial Aid Award Notifications come out on May 1, so I assume that's when admission results come out!!

    @transferrrrrrcc according to their website, that's when fin aid comes out. I'm just making a conjecture, but it seems reasonable that transfer students will know their app decision by the time they get their fin aid!! Fingers crossed, at least

    If financial aid is supposed to come out tomorrow then I wouldn’t be surprised if decisions came out today (or tomorrow). I could be wrong, but don’t FA decisions for transfers usually come out after decisions?

    I called Rice, and they said financial aid can come out before decisions - we can get them anytime from now to mid June. They were not too friendly either...

    Why would they give out financial aid before decisions ... that’s just false hope

    Hopefully the person you talked to was just bitter because we found information we aren't supposed to know. Fingers crossed results come out today!
