My son and I visited RIT this summer, and also met with the admissions department.
Admission standards at RIT vary depending upon which major you apply for. High school course requirements and mean SAT/GPA vary as well. Acceptance percentages also vary by major.
The link below has two pages that include the test scores, by major, for ADMITTED applicants, which means ACCEPTED applicants (bear in mind that the test scores of admitted applicants are almost always higher than those of attending students, because many of the highest scoring students are using the school as a safety school).
Scroll down to about page 50 to see the admissions info.
My son is interested in engineering technology, and they list the SAT scores for the 25th percentile/75th percentile for this major to be 1580 / 1850. The admissions person we met with said that 200 of the 245 applicants (82%) for engineering technology were accepted; the RIT acceptance percentage overall is about 60%, so other departments obviously have a much lower acceptance percentage. My son has an ACT of 23, 89 average and a rank of 9 in a class of 60, and the admissions counselor said that he was likely to get in, although that was without seeing his transcript.
The Industrial Design department accepted 53 out of 73 (73%), by the way.
The SAT scores for the 25th percentile/75th percentile for the admitted engineering majors is 1780 / 2030, to give you a comparison with the engineering technology data.
One more note: I've read some complaints that RIT has an ugly campus, and can't quite figure out why. Yes, all the buildings are new and made from brick, so there isn't the architectural variety that you get at some schools. However, the campus is well-laid out, spacious, and the buildings are attractive. The only risk is that you could get lost, because the buildings all look alike. (Every freshman at any college with more than three buildings gets lost, regardless).
My son didn't care about the buildings, anyway. He was interested in the labs, which he was very impressed with (as was I). The school has very good facilities.
