    @transferrrrrrcc oh oops, totally missed the joke there! It's great that you have this amazing option! I couldn't apply outside of Houston, for family reasons, so it was Rice or bust! That's why I'm super grateful this worked out.

    I'm just scared, because I don't think I'm academically prepared! I've gone to really bad schools all my life.

    @CriedEmerson Congratulations! If Rice admitted you, it believes you are academically prepared. Don't second guess yourself. You will thrive at Rice.

    When do waitlisted applicants hear back?

    @CriedEmerson i feel the exact same way about berkeley. during my year at CC, it’s been a LOT of work to study for classes but only one of my classes legitimately challenged the hell out of me and i ended with a B in that one : (

    at transfer day the first thing the dean of students said was “if you’re thinking we made a mistake... WE DIDNT” and it was a cute ego boost but im scared for next year! i just can’t help but think i only got in because berkeley has an obligation as a public school to accept california CC students. this was long and irrelevant to Rice which I’m sorry for!

    @transferrrrrrcc omg, I'm feeling the exact same way! It's crazy that they said that because i have been grappling with the thought that my admission was a technical mistake. But that's such an irrational thought I try to push it away. And this is not irrelevant to Rice, because we're both experiencing imposter syndrome I think!

    And also, I've been sort of sad that I might not have fully deserved this acceptance because I have sibling legacy! So I guess we both had edges for rice and uc berkeley, but think of it this way: they rejected so many in state applicants. They went through your application multiple times and each time, it was unanimously agreed that you deserved to be accepted. In state applicants are in no way a shoo in! Not sure you can say the same for legacy though, considering they admitted me...

    @CriedEmerson okay legacy is definitely not a factor of ur admission. Even with legacy you get in because of your own stats. i read somewhere that this kid thought he would for sure get into Duke since his dad went there, even though his scores were a littlest below average. he ended up getting rejected! legacy can only further (and barely) boost students who are already qualified applicants.

    by the way what’s your major?

    I still haven't decided on a major! But definitely not stem :)
