    @IamINTP, I wish it was sooner for my daughter's sake!

    @2kidsinky Sooner for my own sake too. xD

    3 days left for ED deadline at both RIT and Stevens, and torn between the 2. RIT seems to have a great co-op for engineering, but Stevens isn't too bad either. Stevens obviously with a better location, cannot run RIT NPC at the moment but surely Rochester will be cheaper. They also seem to give a lot of merit and needs based aid.

    My son applied to RIT and Stevens too and is torn as well. We'll see what happens! I"m sure RIT will be cheaper but it is pretty far for us.

    I was pleasantly surprised that RIT mailed my DD an actual printed 2016-17 Undergraduate Bulletin (a 300 page catalog!) Being from a previous generation than my daughter, I love paging through it, haha. It has info on all the major, minors and immersions. Has anyone else received this yet? If anyone wants info from the Bulletin, just ask... actually it is also available to view online, here is the link https://www.rit.edu/upub/pdfs/Undergrad_Bulletin.pdf Not sure how to make the link turn blue....

    My D is applying RD in electrical engineering. RIT is very high up on her list and I wish they had EA instead of ED. She loves that "clean and renewable" energy is a specific option, as this is definitely the field she wants to go into. We visited over the summer and had a very positive experience. She took ASL as her foreign language so it would be cool if she could really use it and improve. She's gotten a few useful catalogs from RIT including one specific to women in engineering. It's going to be very suspenseful waiting until March!

    @2kidsinky, the link works for me.

    my S16 got the bulletin when he was applying last year. I thought it was cool that they sent it, and we found it helpful to look over the programs of study for his major. It's nice to have the actual catalog to flip through rather than having to go through it online...

    My DS17, from MA, sent his application in last week. Looking at either Mechanical or Civil Engineering.
  • dbjs70dbjs70 Registered User Posts: 271 Junior Member
    @Motiv8tedmom23, good luck to your DS17. My S16 is a MechE first year and loving the school.

    @dbjs70 - Thank you! This time last year I was encouraging my D16 to get her applications in - she only did RD to any of the schools she applied to. She's going for Mechanical at UMass Amherst but may switch to Industrial with a minor in Engineering Management. Glad to hear good things about R.I.T.

    DS17 just received an acceptance to RIT for Civil Engineering. :D

    @Motiv8tedmom23 umm... did you apply ED?

    Son just received his early decision acceptance in Game Design yesterday. Apparently we will get his scholarship info separately. He is happy to have the decision made.

    Now we just have to see where his twin brother will end up as he didn't apply to RIT.

    @jabbahop and @Motiv8tedmom23 congrats!! My S16 roommate is a game design major and I believe is like the program. S16 is a MechE major and loves the school.

    Scholarship info does come later, though I can't recall specifically when, though I think in late February.
