    Do you have a class rank?

    I do not have a class rank; I attend a private school in Houston that doesn't rank

    hmm.. The GPA as a number is a little low relative to stats I have seen/read. Where would you estimate it to be relative to your peers? Does your school have a hard grading curve?

    I ask as I finished HS with a 82/100, which on its own is far from spectacular. I was rank 2 in my class however and my transcript did have the average on it as well, which I was way ahead of. I speculate this helped me get in.

    I go to an extremely challenging school in , which is consistently ranked among the top in the United States... So, my gpa isn't uncommon but we don't rank... Rice knows its a hard school, many many kids from my school go to rice

    Well, in that case, your stats put you well in range to get in. You will be compared against other applicants from your school which can help as well.

    Good Luck
