What is your overall opinion of this school?

It's great! I love the the many, many hackathons and the variety of clubs. The vegetarian dining options are surprisingly decent. Everyone you talk to is smart, but there's no cutthroat competition either. While classes can be hard, help is definitely available. Also, we have snake robots: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8VLjDjXzTiU.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I know Carnegie Mellon has a reputation for being very academically rigorous. However, I believe that despite the academic rigor CMU provides a lot of support and assistance for students to handle their workload and stress. For example, just about everyone - professors, Resident Assistants (RAs), deans, alumni - emphasize that asking for help is not a sign of weakness, but a sign of strength. I have found this to be true, as asking for help decreased my anxiety and allowed me to do better in my classes. My professors have really supported me and helped me and other students manage our workload.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I came to Carnegie Mellon not super excited, but hoping to make the most of it. And boy, did I try. I put myself out there, tried to say "yes" to most things (unless it made me actually feel uncomfortable) all with the hopes of making friends and having some fun. My classes are ridiculously easy although I am learning things, so that's not a bad thing. Others are having a harder time with classes. CMU social life is absolutely dead. They do nothing to foster a community here, so unless you're lucky enough to find your people, you won't–you'll be lonely and bored despite making your best effort to be around others and connect with them. People don't care about that here–they care about academics only.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

For those who have coasted off their memory or intelligence their whole lives, Carnegie will teach you what failure means. It will knock you down, and you have to have it in you to get back up and try twice as hard. I've only been here a year, but its already changed me as a person. I put in more effort, I try harder, and I learn from my mistakes. Carnegie isn't a pleasure cruise, but once you're done you'll look back and you won't regret a thing.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Carnegie Mellon University lives up to its reputation for being a rigorous, challenging institution. The English Program is often overlooked, but is a hidden gem in terms of faculty and curriculum. Courses range from Literary Journalism to Pirates and Prostitutes: The Long Eighteenth Century. Not only is the subject matter diverse, so is the student body. CMU is home to students from various international and financial backgrounds and is an excellent place to be.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Carnegie Mellon is a very competitive environment and it will take a lot of work to maintain good grades. However, students and faculty are always here to help you and there are many resources such as tutoring, excel sessions, and supplemental instruction. Everyone here is very friendly and they want the best for you.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Carnegie Mellon is a 'world-class university'. We have undeniably great academics, and that alone grants it a decent rating, but the academics are about as far as CMU goes. Do not come to this school looking for the parties, food, or facilities. We lack all of those. Students are generally nice but very introverted and much more concerned with their work then they are with their friends. Your friends at state schools will be eating better food and having more fun than you are, but you can rest assured you are (probably) getting a better education. CMU is a wonderful place to go to learn very interesting things but if you're looking to have some fun in college maybe choose another place.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I love Carnegie Mellon! The school is very focused on learning, and they support you so that you can absorb as much knowledge as you can. The classes ensure that you achieve mastery of the topics, and they go in depth while covering a lot of different subjects. I am also able to have a life and have fun with friends, which is important for life balance. It's a great school and I would definitely recommend it for students who are excited to learn.

Carnegie Mellon University is an amazing school. The visitor center is always stocked with refreshments and friendly faces, the school plans many events for visitors, and all of the students that I've met have been very friendly. Overall, just a perfect school!
