|Students who got into RIT say:|
Essay (24) |
I was a shoe-in for this place, as I got my AA with honors, and a 1300 on my SAT. But I was really lacking on extra-cirricular activies. I have heard several times that the admissions folks like seeing independent projects. If you're applying to engineering, try to include something you built, desinged, or whatever in your application. If you and your buddies built a skate ramp, include it in your application and explain how you made it (if you didn't just slap it together of course). If you like working on cars, talk about some of the things you did. Then try to tie it all into engineering and how this is what you want to do in life.

I applied early decision to RIT.
| Computer Science|| Apr 11 2005 | I got in on early admissions. (i.e. I could prove I could pay for it, so they let me in)
If you want to get in, simply wave money in front of them, and tell them you hate your life, and wish to see how it could possibly get worse.
