What is your overall opinion of this school?

Carnegie Mellon is a great university, located in a great city, my main complaint is that a lot of funding for the CS and robotics department comes from the US government, and that prevents the school from being bold and politically active. It is oddly neutral.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Despite the challenging academic rigor of Carnegie Mellon, the teachers and students there create a passionate and encouraging community. I feel a strong connection to my fellow students. In addition, when I have time to take a break from academics, there are often activities to attend either on campus or in the city.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I felt like it can be a decent environment for me to pursue my degree in Computer Science. It is ranked number 5 in the nation in some websites, which astonished me since the acceptance rate is bit more lenient than most top schools. It would be a good place to have a nice college life from all the research I have done.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Carnegie Mellon is a great school, especially in terms of academics. Everyone here is really smart and works very hard to reach their goals. However, with this comes a lot of stress, where students maybe care a little too much about what goes on in the classroom rather than what goes on in the world outside of it. In terms of sports culture and typical expectations of a college campus, you might not find a lot of that here.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I'm my opinion, Carnegie Mellon is one of the best colleges in the United States. The thing I like best about this college is that there isn't that cut-throat competition feel to the school that plagues many other top colleges, and the environment is pretty chill and relaxed.

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.
