Rice University Graduate Reviews

2 reviews
The recruiting and application process was very different from other colleges and programs that I applied for. Rice was very good about following up and providing more information. They worked with you to remove road blocks and worked hard to keep you informed and help you provide the best application possible. Other colleges and universities I had to call regularly every day leaving voicemails hoping to reach somebody, vs always getting a call back the same day from Rice.

This is an amazing university filled with friendly and educated people around every corner. It also does not hurt that the campus is one of the most beautiful that I have ever been on. There are trees everywhere. Nearly everywhere you go, you are surrounded by nature and owls!
