Introducing a New Expert Content Section: Careers
Hi, it would be great if somebody could let me know my chances at getting into Rice RD! I was deferred from Yale and UNC (out of state) early action.
I applied for the School of Social Science with the potential majors PoliSci, Econ, or Environmental Science
I go to a competitive all-girls private school that doesn't give out rankings
GPA: 4.05/4.3 (4.0 being straight As and 4.3 being straight A+)
APs: World History, French, Calculus AB, US History, Environmental Science -- all 5s
I'm taking two more AP courses this year (BC and Comp Gov) and most of my other classes are honors level
New SAT: 1590
SAT Math II/Literature: 770
Submitted 2 teacher recs and 1 advisor rec
Activities: Stage Crew for 4 years (head of build my junior year and head of all crew my senior year), Model UN for 3 years, Coordinator of a community service program my senior year, Varsity Golf for 3 years, Political Club for 2 years (secretary 10th grade, president 11th grade)
The summer before my senior year, I worked at Six Flags as a lighting technician the summer as well as attending a week-long internship with my congressman.
Essays -- probably about 8/10, I worked really hard on them and I think they're interesting and show clear interest in attending Rice, but they're not necessarily stand-out/perfect level.
Not sure if this is influential whatsoever, but my grandfather and aunt went to Rice?
I had my interview in December which I thought went well. Also, I live in Texas, which I've heard might actually hurt my chances? I did go visit a couple weeks before submitting my application and wrote a bit on my visit in my essays.
Please let me know my chances!
