Why is there no decisions thread here? + *Engineering Scholarships*

<p>Decisions threads are really helpful, why is there none on this forum?</p>

<p>How competitive are engineering scholarships, which are awarded to "outstanding applicants to the engineeering division"? What would be the typical or an example of one such applicant to recieve an engineering scholarship around half/full tuition? Rice applicants are already so good, how can they have merit scholarships like these?</p>

<p>depends on GPA, EC's , SAT etc. as well as demonstrated research or desire to do some</p>

<p>use the search function. you will find the decision threads.</p>

<p>^ I have tried that, with no luck. If you have found one, please show me.</p>

<p>what do you mean by decision threads? sorry, im a little unclear</p>

<p>Things like this: <a href="http://talk.collegeconfidential.com/yale-university/894258-official-yale-class-2014-rd-results-thread-4.html%5B/url%5D"&gt;http://talk.collegeconfidential.com/yale-university/894258-official-yale-class-2014-rd-results-thread-4.html&lt;/a&gt;&lt;/p>

<p>which get you an idea of how you stand as an applicant.</p>

<p>If you know, please give the profile of a typical applicant accepted to Rice Engineering who gets the engineering merit scholarships.</p>

<p>^thank you. Acccepted applicants are top notch really, and can get into plently of the top 10 schools. Which brings me to the question, what kind of applicant would be outstanding enough to receive merit scholarships from the engineering division?</p>

<p>i guess one who is outstanding in some regard. The criteria are here
Rice</a> University | Prospective Students</p>

<p>Century scholars for example are interested in research, done research, done something above and beyond in school etc.</p>

<p>Yes, I'm looking at </p>

<p>Engineering Scholarships - Outstanding applicants to the engineering division - $6,500 to Full tuition</p>

Student standouts—that’s what we look for! Merit-based award recipients generally distinguish themselves scholastically and personally within our highly competitive group of admitted students. </p>

<p>Our past recipients include</p>

<p>•math/science competition winners

I would fall into that category, so would that make me a student standout - with a decent chance for admission, and dare I say it, a merit scholarship?</p>

<p>as I say to all chance threads - if you apply, you have an infinitely better chance than if you dont. I dont know how they hand out scholarships.</p>

<p>If you are outstanding, you have a chance at getting in and getting a scholarship. So do apply and good luck!!</p>

<p>you're absolutley right. /end thread</p>

<p>Just a little anecdotal info- I have yet to meet someone on an engineering scholarship, while I know several Century Scholars and people who received Trustee scholarships.</p>

<p>I got an engineering scholarship. Not a huge one, but yeah</p>

<p>^Oh Antarius, can you PM me how much you got and your stats? Or on here too? Thanks! I'm still going to apply to Rice no matter what tho..I'm jw.</p>

<p>mine wasnt full/half tuition or even close. I got it during my junior or maybe soph year. Ill need to check</p>
