It is definitely very good offer.
If you have any reservations - best thing is to log in to a web page of ISA - Indian Student Association nd get in touch with current / past students - to get more clear picture for Scope of Jobs etc after graduation.

Make sure, they demand any money for processing and all.
This can be a fishing. Don't pay any penny.

Is it a full tuition + fee waiver or is it just a tuition or only a fee waiver? $6000/year is not a lot of money for Rochester so you may have to shell out money from your pocket towards living expenses. Check if RIT offers insurance discount or free medical insurance to you, as it can be additional savings. Also, you say it is for the first year, what about the remaining years? You may need to show the money to the visa officer for the remaining part. Most of the time students are able to get some sort of funding during later years, but that does not mean it is guaranteed. Try contacting professors right now or once you join RIT to ensure continuous funding. Congrats by the way.
