Rice University Class of 2024 Early Decision Statistics

Early Decision applications to Rice were down slightly for the Class of 2024.

2,042 students applied to Rice University’s Class of 2024 under its binding Early Decision program this year. Of these students, 385 students earned admission. An additional 55 students were admitted through QuestBride. This marks an Early Decision admit rate of 18.9%. Last year, as our readers may remember, Rice experienced a banner year in admissions on the heels of announcing the school was going tuition-free for low and middle-income students, receiving 2,628 Early Decision applications and offering admission to 355 students and an additional 55 through QuestBridge (for an ED admit rate of 15.5%). But while ED applications are down from last year, they were still up from the ED round for the Rice Class of 2022. So what’s the breakdown of the Early Decision admits to the Rice University Class of 2024, you ask? Wonder no more!

Breakdown of the Rice Class of 2024 Early Decision Admits

As Brian Lin reports for The Rice Thresher in a piece entitled “Rice admits 19 percent of Early Decision applicants to the class of 2024,” “Of these 440 students, 44 percent are from Texas, another 44 percent are from elsewhere in the U.S. and 12 percent are international students, according to [vice president for enrollment] Romero da Silva…More than 21 nationalities and dual nationalities are represented among those accepted into the class of 2024 through ED and QuestBridge, according to Romero da Silva. She said that the most heavily represented nations among the international applicants accepted are China, South Korea, Mexico, Japan and Vietnam.

Congratulations to all students who earned admission to Rice University’s Class of 2024 through Early Decision! Go Owls!
