CMU is one of the pioneer school in engineering and technology which has lot to offer to its students. The work load is enormous which might take you some time to adjust. Pittsburgh is very basic city with limited opportunities to explore around.

CMU is an extraordinary place. The talent within the study body elevates the level of education, and the top-notch faculty provide the precise level of challenge.

Excellent education (I can speak to the engineering department). Pittsburgh is not a bad city, but do not expect New York or Los Angeles. You will be disappointed.

Carnegie is a great school, small campus, few programs compared to large schools like Stanford but their programs are very rich in quality. Pittsburgh is a very nice and affordable and safe city to live in as well.

Carnegie Mellon is a school to come to when you seek a solid education. As a graduate student (and even as a masters or undergraduate student), it's ultimately up to each individual to make the most of Carnegie Mellon's offerings. Someone with a lot of competitive drive and internal motivation will find this school rewarding.
