Chemical Engineering at Carnegie Mellon is a very social group, yet has very high academic expectations and the credentials to warrant it. Pittsburgh is a wonderful city that is student friendly, but has more to offer than just college life. And yes, you will have time to explore the city. Cost of living is very reasonable, and your id gets you a free bus pass. Unfortunately, the school use of technology is often lacking, which is surprising given the caliber of the computer science department. What is perhaps lacking in technology is made up for in professor accessibility. Professors teach the classes in engineering, and are around to answer questions regarding academics and life in general. Overall, CMU Engineering is a great choice for someone looking for something academically challenging in a fun and liveable city.

The professors are very great, but I prefer more times spending on talking with them without doing homework by myself all day.

The location is close to other college campuses but the local transportation, food, and activities are limited. The workload is high and the teachers range from being the best I've ever had to somewhat mediocre.
