Okay, I have to ask this. I am black(lol) and my father taught at Rice for 6 years and also got his Phd there. Moreover, after a while my parents split and I am in a struggling single parent home. Now, will the fact that my father contributed so much of the school help me a lot? All my friends at school think I am a shoe in, but I am not so sure. My stats are as good as some ppl admitted interim, but I just dont know.
