    I feel your pain. This was me last year.

    I'm waiting to hear back too. I already received my results for my two safety schools. Their application deadlines were sooner. I got accepted to both, but I want to see how my last two turn out. I applied to four schools. How about you? I hope my last two schools send me results before May 1st since that is my deadline for saving my spot at either of my two safety schools.

    Rice is actually the only school I've applied to because I'm fine staying at my current school if things don't work out. I think we'll hear back before May 1 because that's what previous transfer message boards have mentioned...sometime like end of April maybe. Are you applying as a freshman or sophomore?

    Oh okay, I don't have that option :P. I'm currently at a community college. I'm applying as a sophomore, I think? I have about 100 credit hours, but half of those won't even apply. I have all of general and organic chemistry, and all of general and engineering (calculus based physics), Calculus 1-3 and Diff Eqs, and then all of the usual basic type classes (Histories, governments, etc.). But I took the majority of these while still in High School. And I'm hoping by late April, that would be awesome!

    I know that with the CCs in my area, that credits are double what they really are at Rice, so your 100 hours may be 50 (or so). However if you truly have 100, then you'll come in as a senior, which I'm guessing won't be the case.

    Yeah, I'm imagining that I'll start as a sophomore at Rice. At UT-Austin they admitted me as a Junior, but if Rice accepts me I would rather go there. I wouldn't be as far in debt if I were to go to Rice, and I like the community there better, so I don't mind having to stay an extra year.
