    @transferrrrrrcc yeah - sorry I just feel really guilty about this, hence why I didn't announce it. I hate thinking about all the pain others must be going through :(

    Is there a groupme?

    @transferrrrrrcc thank you so much! have you decided where you're heading?

    I dont think there is a transfer group me just yet, only because Rice doesn't accept many transfers at all. Last year, they only accepted 50 transfer students and 2 years ago, around 70.

    Rejected. It sucks that I didn’t get accepted, but I’m happy for those of you who made it. Wish the best!

    @CriedEmerson i will probably "settle" for berkeley. the only schools left are out of states and privates and seeing that i've been rejected from rice i don't really feel that i'll get in anywhere else! i'm okay with that tho : ) have fun at Rice!! i'm so happy for you!

    @transferrrrrrcc "Settle" for Berkeley? Haha. I was just sharing this thread with my bro, and he said Berkeley is better than Rice! Might be hard to quantify in such simplistic terms, but "settle" is definitely an underestimation of Berkeley.

    Also, Rice is weird sometimes, especially with transfers - not, I think, a reflection of your other admissions. Whatever happens, best of luck! Let me know where you end up going 😊

    anyone know anything about the waitlist, like how and when they release decisions, and how many people in the past have gotten off the waitlist?
  • CriedEmersonCriedEmerson Registered User Posts: 73 Junior Member
    You can find that info on the Common Data Set for each year. Rice's waitlists have not been too generous in the past though.

    @CriedEmerson oh haha i was just joking about settling. im so lucky to have gotten into berkeley! ive just always wanted to go to an out of state school and im worried that once i step onto campus i won’t like it much.

    and you’re right. i definitely feel like im qualified to be admitted to the schools i applied to but the admission process is really so random, and the likelihood i get into the schools i apply to is so slim.
