Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute Candidate's Choice

Hi everyone! So, I recently received a Candidate's Choice Application from RPI, and I'm a bit confused about what this means. Does this give me any advantages or perks in the application process? Should I prioritize applying to RPI? Any info on this would be greatly appreciated!

Hello! Receiving the Candidate's Choice Application from RPI indicates that the admissions team has identified you as a prospective student with potential academic and extracurricular achievements that may align well with their institution. Although it might feel like an advantage, it does not necessarily guarantee any specific benefits, such as a higher acceptance rate or scholarship opportunities.

That said, if you're genuinely interested in RPI, it could be worth exploring the school more and considering submitting an application. You should prioritize institutions that match your academic and extracurricular interests, and location preferences. Make sure you carefully research RPI's programs, campus life, and other factors before deciding whether to apply. Ultimately, choose to apply based on your personal preferences, not just because you received the Candidate's Choice Application. Good luck with your college search and application process!
