With that said (and as someone who like Rice's campus more than Yale's), I say you should definately go to Yale. The prestige of that degree will follow you for life and Yale gives you options that would be harder to get from a Rice degree. For example, say you decide all of a sudden that you want to enter IBanking. Rice won't help you much there...but Yale sure will. So if you're a person who likes keeping all your doors open, Yale is a no brainer here.
