I enjoy the freedom of course selection in CMU,a lot of resource available makes the life on campus attractive.While,the compulsive policy that the third semester has to be full time leads to higher tuition.

Small tight knit community means you can get to know all your classmates well and even the professors if you want to. Great overall university with neat resources. VERY quant heavy which is highly respected by employers. Smaller group means less variety of classes but lots of great classes none the less. Not as many great companies come here because Pittsburgh is frankly annoying to get to but the biggest ones do.

The academics at carnegie mellon university focuses much on better quality work. Most of the research areas that the department work in are pioneering and this is what sets it apart from other universities. It has a nice vibrant culture. Although the workload is a little intensive, but it is an enjoyable learning experience.

One of the greatest pros of my graduate program at Carnegie Mellon is the vast amount of knowledge we as students have access to each day. Countless world renowned professors are all around us, and although their primary focus is often see as educating in the classroom, they go above and beyond by spending extra time to answer all students’ questions and finding ways to help us succeed not only as students, but as young professionals as well. I believe the professors are by far the biggest strength of my graduate program. One of the only cons I have encountered in my program is that the general required courses tend to have a larger class size than those courses that are more specified and optional. I personally find that the smaller the class size, the more beneficial the learning environment is.

Degree: Computer Science
Graduation Year: 2016

This is a top program in the field of computer science and Human-Computer Interaction, the only real downside is that there is no program or financial aid of any kind.

The real downside is that there is no financial aid. However, the quality of the program and its gradutes, and the connections made for a one year program are fantastic.

Tepper is an amazing program. Although the campus is quite small and the facilities a little too cozy at times, the warmth and brilliance of the people within shall surely tickle the heartstrings of anyone who passes through these halls. Tepper counts a number of smart professors and students among its ranks. Although the program is quite quantitative, in this day and age such skills are becoming more and more necessary for daily life. I heartily recommend that you choose Carnegie Mellon University for your educational experience, as I myself have, for it is truly an immersive and wondrous decision to make. I am deeply satisfied with my own decision to matriculate, and I hope that my comments can serve as guidance for those undecided students who also are looking to pursue studies in Business Administration at Carnegie Mellon University's Tepper School of Business.

Pros: Carnegie Mellon is well-respected in the region and worldwide so the reputation goes a long way; strong emphasis on quantitative skills and technology that makes graduates much more employable; Pittsburgh is a very affordable and enjoyable city to live in; access to world-class faculty and research Cons: Intense work-load; competition between students is unbearable sometimes; ability to seek help from professors is hit or miss
