    Visit Rice! It's important to visit a school before committing, and for me, visiting Rice was what made me realize that this is where I belong.

    Rice University is no joke when it is called the Harvard of the south. It is a very difficult school, but if try hard you will succeed. Also, never be afraid to ask for help because the people at Rice are extremely kind and are always more than happy to help.
