I got waitlisted from Rice, and I’m really desperate to get off the waitlist. While I’m trying my best here, this is just for fun to see if anyone’s actually gonna choose a school over Rice:)
Hi @bluejelly, also on the waitlist here. I wish you all the best.
@bluejelly Thanks for sharing this solution of this problem.
This is an unusual year. No one can predict how many Rice will take off the waiting list. If you look at the Rice Common Data Sets section C2 from the past five years, Rice has large numbers on the waiting list and has taken as few as 1 and as many as 127 off the waiting list. For 2019-2020 the number was 1. The best thing to do is assume you won’t get off the waiting list, emotionally commit to another school, and deposit somewhere by May 1. If Rice pulls you off the wait list then you have a choice to make. If you get a call from Houston (713 or 281 area codes are the main area codes for Houston) answer it. It might be Rice admissions on the line. Common Data Set | The Office of Institutional Research | Rice University
