Degree: Physics
Graduation Year: 2017

A very challenging program in the traditional physics sense, but infused with the creative spirit characteristic to CMU. The research options are very broad and many groups are on the cutting edge of unique fields. Pittsburgh is a great city to live in and the proximity of CMU to other universities creates a great educational atmosphere. The other physics graduate students are pretty awesome too, so it's easy to find a pick-me-up when the stress starts to get you down. Overall, I'm very happy here!

Degree: Public Policy
Graduation Year: 2013

Pros: You will meet a lot of diverse students and you work with faculty who have worked in the fields they are teaching. There are tons of opportunities for networking with employers and entrepreneurs, and there are lots of resources to use to find employment. Cons: I think the program is too career-oriented, which makes classes less challenging than they could be.
