The quality of RIT really depends on you major; Engineering or computing, you're fine. Business and liberal arts? You'd better be working in the region for maximum benefit. It's a little overpriced, even if you're on some sort of scholarship like most people. The reason? They'll tack on all sorts of random fees to boost the price. My mandatory fees are about 300$ in total per term, three per year, and housing prices don't make any sense. The best housing on campus is essentially inherited from friend to friend through the years and is hardly more expensive than the dormitories. If you live on campus, you have a meal plan that costs approximately 1200$ per term which, if you choose to buy food from the stores on campus, cost approximately 10-40% more than the standard price at a grocery store.

The campus is career-oriented, meaning that you'll be learning more practical information regarding your chosen major rather than theoretical. It also means you'll have a lot of garbage classes, depending on your current level of competence.

Not bad, but depending on your current abilities and aspirations, there may be significantly better options.
