In appraising CMU, most students are appreciative of the fantastic education they’re receiving and the one-of-a-kind experience that the campus offers. At CMU, students have an unprecedented opportunity to explore their fields of study. Sometimes it’s hard for students to see all opportunities that Carnegie Mellon gives them. Students who are unhappy with their experience are often frustrated with the sub-par social situation or the massive amount of work.
No matter how fed up students get with the amount of work, the social scene, or the bad weather, students are often glad they came to CMU when they think about the unique experience the school has given them. The academic opportunities you will receive at CMU are astounding, and everyone on campus is truly dedicated to learning. Though the time spent at CMU may not fulfill some students' hopes of living a wild youth, the years spent at Carnegie Mellon can be just as exciting in some ways. It's different. And for people who don't want the same college experience as everyone else, it can be exciting.
