    Does anyone have information about the Rice/Baylor program waitlist? Has anyone got in from the waitlist?

    @MrMonk Just curious -- how did you find out Rice was waiting to release waitlists until after May 1st?

    From the Rice Website:

    What is the waitlist?

    Your application received enough support from the Admission Committee to be approved for admission. However, Rice's small size prevents us from admitting all such students. As an alternate to the class you are given the opportunity to accept a place on the waitlist. Students on the waitlist are considered for positions in the class if any remain unfilled after May 1, 2019.

    Info from Rice is that they haven’t taken anyone and have no timeline. And if anything changes will let people know in the coming weeks.

    Yes. My son was waitlisted in 2015 and we visited and he got it. It pays to put in the effort. This May my son graduated from Rice!

    According to Rice's recently released Common Data Set for 2018-2019, in the class of 2022 which had 958 first time freshmen, 3296 were offered a spot on the waitlist, 2137 accepted the spot, and 31 were admitted. The numbers on the wait list for this year may be different because of the large uptick in applications.

    A 1 percent chance of being accepted from the waitlist is normal for Rice. That's why people in this thread have suggested waitlisters not bank on Rice but instead fully explore other opportunities while crossing their fingers they'll beat the odds.

    Just got an email saying I won’t be admitted. Congrats to anyone who got off the waitlist!

    A post from someone on Reddit from yesterday:

    “I got something in the lines of this: " I am writing with an update regarding our waitlist for Fall 2019. We are currently oversubscribed for the fall term and do not anticipate admitting any students from our waitlist. However, there are some students — including yourself — that remain on our waitlist. If you choose, you may withdraw from the waitlist via your Rice Admission Student Portal. Otherwise, you may expect another update by the end of June.”

    Seems as if most people got the “rejected from the waitlist” email, though.

    Rice may be overenrolled like they were for the class of 2021. The yield may be up because of the new financial aid initiative. Rice guarantees housing for all freshmen and incoming transfers. During the summer of 2017 when Rice was overenrolled for the class of 2021, the University offered financial incentives for upper class students to overcrowd rooms or move off campus. More students took the offer than needed. As a result some housing opened late in the summer, and 17 people were pulled from the wait list. It could happen again this year. There is always a little bit of summer melt of people that enroll in Rice and then renege for whatever reason. If given the opportunity to do so, there is no harm remaining on the wait list realizing the chances are slim or none. If it were me, I would decline it and move on.
