Rice University is not for those who do not have a strong idea about what they want to do with their future. The school does start students early in their desired major. The school however is flexible in changing majors at any point in the student's college career. The school is welcoming and comfortable but is not all fun and games. The intense focus on selected major is to ensure that students that attend Rice complete their major in the shortest amount of time without jampacking their schedules later in their schooling.
The kind of person that should not attend Rice is the person who is attending college for some reason other than their education. Everyone at Rice takes their academic interests seriously, and if you find getting intensely involved in your classwork something you would never do, then Rice is not the place for you.
