|Students who got into NJIT say:|
Essay (7) |
When I applied, I also sent two letters of recommendation and a short essay. To be honest, doing all of that is not necessary to get in, but it definitely raises your chances. Especially if you were a person like me who messed up a little bit in high school. I recommend that you visit the campus before making the choice to come here, because trust me this school is amazing, but it is definitely NOT for everyone. So before you make a commitment to come to NJIT, see if you would actually be happy here by visiting and seeing what it is actually like. (Make sure to visit on a school day though, because the campus is quite dead on weekends, holidays, and during summer) Oh and on a side note, NJIT does not look at your writing scores on the SAT, so when adding your SAT score to see how you match up with the average of the school, you only add Math and Critical Reading. (My score with math + critical reading was 1150, and with all three sections it was a 1720)

I was lazy in high school and graduated with a 3.0 GPA (out of 5), didn't have to write an essay on the online application, and my SAT score was a 1680. Nothing impressive, but right now as a freshman, my GPA stands at 3.25 (out of 4). Work hard, and you'll fit right in. Oh, and yes, getting into this school is heavily regarded on race. Caucasians and blacks get in pretty easily. Asians and Indians/Paki's/browns have a tougher time, but asians have the toughest. NJIT recruits foreign students to attend the university, most of them from Japan/China, So asians are competing not only nationally, but internationally.
