I have a learnt a lot in this short period. It has been a great experience overall. However, I found some days extremely hectic which is probably understandable given the level of competitiveness.

4.67 out of 5.0
Degree: Public Policy
Graduation Year: 2015

Heinz College offers a great program in Public Policy. Although it is known for being one of the most quantitative policy programs, it is not as rigorous as I thought it might be. Having come to Heinz with a quantitative background, I was expecting the program to be more quantitative than it is. However, the program is set up to take students with a liberal arts background and bring them up to speed with respect to quantitative skills. The professors are extremely knowledgeable, and most of them are still active in their fields. The school offers a considerable amount of financial aid, and they have an incredible alumni network.

Degree: Performing Arts
Graduation Year: 2017

The education at CMU is outstanding. Classes are challenging and faculty is dedicated to every students individual success. The downside is that the program is very expensive. Accepting the student debt is difficult and not all students are provided with the financial assistance they may need to attend.

Degree: Construction Management
Graduation Year: 2015

I really like the quality of education and the environment at Carnegie Mellon. I recommend the Construction Management program and I can also speak the same for other Civil Engineering programs here. I wish there was more effort towards career and industry development.

Degree: Civil Engineering
Graduation Year: 2015

Great program, and awsome faculty and staff. The program strives towards innovations and building a brighter future. It has great flexibility when it comes to classes, which is a huge plus. Also there is a large diversity of academic backgrounds, not just engineers, which brings a unique aspect to the program.
