<p>Definetly work on those SAT scores</p>

<p>Your GPA is good, and your rank is outstanding. Unfortunately, the above poster is right: if you can't bump up those SAT scores to at least a 2000, your chances at Rice are very slim. So definitely retake the SAT and try and score better, since that seems to be the largest roadblock standing between you and acceptance. Your EC's are decent, everything else looks fine, just raise your SAT scores, write good essays, and you've got a good shot at Rice. Best of luck! :)</p>
