Class Profile

Rice’s holistic review yields a strong class each year. We seek students who demonstrate academic prowess and show strong promise of leadership and interest in bettering their communities. The application has many areas of evaluation, and we are careful not to weigh any one section over the rest in our holistic review.

Still, we recognize some find comfort in knowing the profile of a student accepted to Rice. Below are the statistics for the class of 2024.
