I started seriously thinking about Rice after I researched number of schools and found out that it offers outstanding diversity and student to faculty ratio which is one of the best in country. Individual approach is one of the core values I am looking for and Rice fits this perfectly. The only thing that was a drawback for me was its location - downtown Houston; I assumed there would be lack of trees and greenery but touring Rice, the truth showed to be the exact opposite - it offered the greenest and most pleasant setting out of all that I had visited. I fell in love with the beautiful, environment-friendly campus, which seemed like an oasis in the middle of a massive, pulsing city. The residential college system and faculty masters assured me that Rice offers not only great academics but also rich social life. My belief that Rice was the one and only school which was right for me was even bolstered when I talked with the remarkable professors that teach here - Anna Bogomolnaia and Herve Moulin. They fascinated me with the Game Theory research they performed and I was astonished when I found out that undergraduate students at Rice were able to participate in it.
I have fallen in love with Rice and would consider it my biggest personal achievement to have the honor to join Rice as a part of Class of 2016.
