| | strong SAT scores, and an essay explaining how you will give back to the community (Rice is big on giving rather than just taking). Express interest and enthusiasm
I maintained a pretty high GPA throughout high school and did well on the SAT (which is good for any college), but I also made sure to cultivate my extra-curricular activities and interests. Rice really emphasizes being well-rounded and involved, so if you want to both get in and enjoy it while you're there having interests outside of your career goals or academic plans is a definite plus. I also took the time to be interviewed. While this doesn't make-up for things like a bad SAT score, etc. having an interview is a good indicator that you're highly interested in any school and that you're actively pursuing getting in. This tends to get you some extra attention when they're viewing your application or at least allow them (and you) to verify whether or not Rice is a good fit.
