    Mr. Simple Manufacturer, you are hardly simple. When someone tells me they got a 3.95 GPA in biomedical engineering, it makes me stand up a little taller to listen a lot harder to their story. Sure, you could do better on the GRE, as one commenter in our community suggests and aim higher, but there is absolutely nothing wrong with Rice which is an excellent school with a superb MBA program with generous scholarship support. Given your deep interest in pharma and medical devices, you might also consider Vanderbilt for its incredible healthcare focus. You don’t have to retake the GRE to get in any of the schools on your list. I think Rice would be lucky to have you!
