RIT offers an Early Decision admittance program, which I took advantage of. Though this program, you apply a month or so before the normal application deadline, and are given first consideration for acceptance. The advantage here is that you find out much sooner than those who wait for the normal deadline. Early Decision is different from Early Action, which is offered at other universities. With ED, it is assumed that if you are accepted, you are accepting the school's offer, so make sure that this is the school you want to go to. Also, I would recommend that you check out the campus first. This will give you an idea of the campus and facilities. However, I would then get in contact with current students to get a true picture of the campus, and not the campus that is buttered up during tours.

I transferred in to the Computer Science program. Had decent grades from my freshman year of college, but nothing too spectacular.
| Computer Science|| Mar 30 2009 | I got in by getting decent grades, and test scores in high school. RIT is not very difficult to get into. RIT is not hard to get into at all. I had a 3.7ish in HS and middling ACT/SAT score and they still gave me a decent scholarship. If you have a 3.3 hs average and 1700ish SAT there should not be a problem provided you have some sort of extra curriculars or at least took honors/AP classes.
Some programs are much harder to get into than others, CE, Game design and Film being the worst. You can always try coming in undecided and then attempting to transfer within the college.
