Write a nice essay and for god's sake, have all your relatives, friends, teachers and so on to proofread it so it'd be flawless.
Go to the closest town meeting for RIT admissions.
Write nice letters (regarding your admissions) for the admissiong officers and follow up by mail or phone.
DO YOUR HOMEWORK, there's no better way to show your interest than making smart questions based on non trivial information about RIT.

I had a 1410 on my SATsDec 15 2004Computer Science
I had a 1410 on my SATs. I don't know my gpa, class rank- all those other numbers. I never did, I was never competative for the numbers. If you want to get into Honors housing, bother with the paper work. If you get accepted to a special interest housing as an off floor member, don't bother. If you're worried about being accepted, set up an interview.
SAT: 1410 Male
