    Some schools other than Rice, such as University of Chicago, Caltech, MIT, and Georgetown offer Early Action (EA)(not binding) or Single Choice Early Action (not binding) (SCEA). SCEA schools include Harvard, Yale, Princeton, and Stanford. Rice does not offer EA or SCEA. Rice offers two admission plans: nonbinding Regular Decision (RD), hear back by April 1, or binding Early Decision (ED), hear back by December 1. If your daughter didn't choose to apply Early Decision, her application is automatically considered for regular decision. If she wants to change her application to be for binding Early Decision, she can do that before November 1. She would need to complete the early decision agreement and add it to her application materials. https://riceadmission.rice.edu/documents/2019_Early_Decision_Agreement.pdf

    They had EA many years ago (2004 ish) but did away with it a few years later.

    How much should I tailor my responses towards RICE for the prompt "There is a breadth of intellectual opportunities here at Rice. Further explain your intended major and other areas of academic focus you may explore?"

    I kind of went general and explained the experience that made me want to major in that subject.

    Also, I feel like my response to the personal perspective essay similar to my common app... is that bad?

    10 days left.

    Feel the pressure building, bit by bit...

    I only have one essay done, too... and my AP Lit teacher assigned us a paper that's due on October 30th. RIP

    Hang in there @awesomepolyglot. Keep your eyes on the prize. Try working on your Rice app for a set amount of time each day, even for half an hour, to give you a break from your high school academic obligations. You will probably enjoy working on the Rice app versus the other stuff. That way you can finish and polish it before Nov. 1. Rice will be looking at the grades you have gotten so far when they review your ED app. In the grand scheme the English paper is less important than a great Rice app.

    does anyone know the average test scores of the individuals who got accepted through ED last year?

    @krisp13
    I have never seen ED test score data, but here is an article that contains the information that Rice released after ED last year:

    Can anyone tell me about what happens after I submit my Coalition application?

    I understand that I will be directed to my new Rice Student Admission Portal account. How long does it take after I submit my Coalition application to gain access to the portal? What's on the portal? Does it contain anything else I need to fill out before my application is "complete"? If so, does this mean I need to submit my coalition application a few days before November 1 so as to have enough time to fill out this extra information, or does the deadline only apply to the submission of the Coalition/Common application?

    Also, am I able to add recommendations to my application after it is submitted?

    Everything should be on your Coalition app for ED. Just make sure you’ve answered everything. I know last year on the Common app things popped up after certain questions were answered. My daughter had to add a few things after deadline last year due to the CSS profile being so slow processing for financial aid.

    Rice does not release test score data for the ED only admits just for the class as a whole. Rice plays in Division 1, and the scholarship athletes are usually admitted ED.

    It took me two hours to upload The Box... The PDF started out at 5800 KB. Super frustrating :(
