Have folks heard about VISION 2024?

I saw a couple of inquires on Reddit but no responses... do we think Rice discontinued the program? It's later than invites have historically been sent out. Anybody get one?

    The norm is for Rice to say not a word about VISION until suddenly in late January the invites are sent. Given the huge weight placed on URM status by Rice admissions officers, it would be quite strange to discontinue the VISION program especially since there's been no announcement to that effect. Best wishes and hope you hear something soon!

    @ricegrad I hope you are right. I don't see any posts about it anywhere and it's February tomorrow. Unless they also moved the weekend later as well that's a super short turnaround for flights, plans. Maybe it's just more underground this year but you'd think at least one person would be announcing they got it and asking what it meant...

    Rice started school a week later than usual this year and the school year ends a week later than usual. Things on the calendar such as Vision and Owl Days may have slipped back a week as well. If you hear nothing by the end of next week, give admissions a call.

    I called this morning, but the person who answered would only say she couldn't say anything about Vision. She could not/would not clarify whether she meant whether it was happening, or when, or if she just didn't hae any idea. Looking back it has slipped later in over the years (from early January to as late as the 23rd for invites) so maybe they just quietly discontinued it, or are trying to keep it off of social media.
