What is your overall opinion of this school?

Coming to Carnegie Mellon has been the biggest regret of my life. This institution is utterly miserable and most of the students are miserable here too. Many try to get black out drunk during the weekends because it’s the only way they can forget about school work. If they’re not getting black out drunk, they’re getting high out of their minds or both! Which causes a lot of students to develop depression and/or anxiety. The professors do NOT care for the mental health of their students and same goes for the rest of the people employed by this institution. This school fools minorities into thinking there is diversity here by inviting them all on specific weekends to visit when actually less that 20% of the student population is BLACK HISPANIC or NATIVE AMERICAN. They group together all of the minority students to boost their numbers. Overall, really awful institution that only cares about ranking and money. If you are a minority student I beg you to think twice before coming here. This school brags about their stress culture and students usually brag about how little sleep they got. Very toxic and competitive environment.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

You do not go to Carnegie Mellon to Party, though you could find some if you really wanted to. You go here to learn, and the instructors will ensure that they stuff gargantuan amounts of class information into your innocent mind. Stress is definitely a issue here, but the University is at least attempting to remedy that, and there are definitely ways in which you can relax, some more healthy than others. CMU is not a traditional college, and that's something I like about it,

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I want my money back! Horrible faculty, horrible facilities, and a devastating, useless degree that was a waste of three years and $100,000. Avoid the MFA in Fine Art at all costs- I am an idiot for coming to this college for this type of degree and you would be one too.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Carnegie Mellon University is probably one of the best educational communities that I have ever been affiliated with. As students we have access to a lot of resources whether physical or faculty wise. Hunt library is probably one of my favorite places on campus. Interdisciplinary studies and extracurricular activities are one of CMU's greatest advantages. Other than just combining electives amongst different schools, you should be able to walk to any faculty member and you will get your answers - whether it is part of your major or not . . . Highly trained and acclaimed faculty is a huge inspiration to all students and therefore, our productivity is positively affected .

What is your overall opinion of this school?

As soon as I stepped on this campus I knew it was the place for me. The people here are nerds, yeah - but that's why I love it! CMU students are passionate, brilliant, inspired people, and I'm so very lucky to call myself one of them. Also, CMU truly puts the phrase "work hard, play hard" to good use. If you only want to study - go you! If you want to go out every night - get it! If you're somewhere in that middle ground (as most people are) you will find plenty of people right there with you. CMU is really a hub for creation and innovation - #1 Musical Theater program, #1 Computer Science program, #6 business school (all national rankings) - and there will always be a place to make you feel at home.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Very nice school. It has a rich history. It needs some updating on one hand. The students are very involved in their academics. They have great sports teams. They do have a girls golf team that does very well in their conference. The school is located in a big city but the school provides security.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Honestly I've stepped foot one campus once in the last two years, and that was during Spring Break to boot. I've essentially spent none of the time necessary to form an educated opinion about any of the questions asked in this review thing, but given that any little bit helps when it comes to funding an education, I'll crank out some words for you guys.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The school has a really supportive environment where students, faculty, and staff are working to help you succeed. There are a lot of departments that exist solely to help students with anything ranging from financial aid to career and leadership development to tutoring. The school is relatively old, so the campus is built kind of haphazardly; it's quirky but you learn to accept/enjoy it. CMU is primarily asian institution located in a safe, affluent suburb, but that also means that it can be hard to get off campus and explore more of Pittsburgh. It's a city with a lot of culture, a lot of activities and museums, and a lot of growth. A lot of the people here feel that they find a place where they belong because there is so much overlap in communities, and very few people identify themselves with one "group" or "activity." Like many higher ranked universities though, the school has developed a stress culture in which all nighters and excessive stretches of work are considered a norm. The campus and greek life have recently brought attention to mental health issues, and there are support systems in place. CMU is a great fit for a lot of people, and, depending on what you're looking for, it could be a perfect match.
