It was pretty easy to get in, RIT wasAug 14 2015Biology
It was pretty easy to get in, RIT was my backup school. When i was searching for schools I heard someone say RIT was a A caliber school for B caliber students. This is pretty much true grade wise, although I was sitting at about a 92 average in high school. Do some extra activities and get a decent SAT score and you can get in with an average in the mid to high 80s.

Do not go to RIT if you plan toFeb 09 2015Art & Design Department
Do not go to RIT if you plan to become an art major. There are better art schools out there.
Attend RIT if you plan to be a biology or engineer. That's what the school is known for anyway.
