Get to know your professors and peers as early on as possible! It helps tons for networking and review plus you get to meet great people.
Shalitha from Washington, DC
A tip I would give students is to not go by the name of the school. Evaluate a school by the career you want to have and the opportunities that an institution can give you. Also, if you dont have the money, still apply because you might be surprised by how much financial aid you may receive.
Christian from Elgin, IL
1.) Work hard in high school, but make sure that you take part in some extracurricular activities too. Colleges look at the whole package, and being in an engineering activity or student government could set you above the rest. 2.) Make sure you apply early to the college, I know it helped me. Also, visit the campus. This might be the place for you, or you might want something bigger. IIT is unique in its size, so make sure you check out many options. 3.) Make sure you are willing to put the work in if you want to succeed here. Don't mean to scare anyone, but it is a lot of work. However, if you can do it, trust me, you will find that you have not wasted your time. 4.) If you are going for financial aid, as I did, IIT was wonderful to me. Make sure you apply early and keep an eye out for any forms you still need to fill out. 5.) College can be stressful, but it can also be fun. Make sure you leave time to hang out with friends, meet new people, and relieve stress. Don't make it all work and no play, but don't play all the time and not work either. If you can find that happy medium, you've got it made. Good luck and I hope to see some new faces come Fall!

Don't worry about the little things. Counselors will work with you to make sure you get everything in on time and if you need some in community college to make yourself more appealing, they will flat out tell you that. The counselors are very friendly and rather than string you along, they will help you in all the ways you need.
Daniel from Chicago, IL
Apply early. Visit campus. Take as much math in high school as you can. Do NOT count IIT out due to the price of tuition (IIT is VERY generous with scholarships).
Jenelle from Chicago, IL
If you're thinking of applying to this school, make sure that you do have leadership skills and that you don't just do things inside the classroom, because IIT also focuses on what students do OUTSIDE the classroom ,so try volunteering your time every now and then. Also when you are admitted and arrive on campus, don't be afraid to be yourself and make sure to get to know your teachers because teachers here do enjoy when students come to their office(that's what office hours are for!) and even talk to your teacher after class if you have questions, just remember, You're in college, no one is going to play mommy for you.
Shatoria from Chicago, IL
Advance Credit courses will get rid of basics, but make sure you remember them before taking more advance classes. Take advantage of office hours when you don't understand anything. There is no shame in asking questions. Be ready to be involved with loads of activities if you come here.
Gary from Fort Worth, TX
For one it is important to be aware of scholarship/grant opportunities since any financial help is essential in studying at the Illinois Institute of Technology. Attending any tours or events such as Discover IIT Day or Preview Weekend that help you learn more about the school is almost essential in determining that IIT is the fit-school for you. Also as a prospective student, meeting new people whether they are in the same position as you or a student there is full of benefits.
Gabriel from Joliet, IL
Make sure you have a lot of different extracurriculars and activities in your high school background. They really like to get students who are going to be involved in the school.
Also, take a lot of math and science classes. AP's are the best because you can get credit for them and then that is less classes you have to pay for, especially since most or all of the majors require math, physics, and chemistry.
