Degree: Computer Science
Graduation Year: 2015

Great reputation. Sometimes the school seems to be riding on that, however. Graduate classes claim to be challenging, but due to grade inflation, they end up not being too hard to pass. There are no GAships for Master's students, only PhDs. The range an quality of students are exceptional. I've really enjoyed learning from my classmates.

Degree: Chemistry
Graduation Year: 2017

It's a great program, but as in all programs, I think a lot of it depends on the match between the student and advisor. My advisor has been helpful and supportive, but I cannot necessarily speak for everyone else in chemistry at CMU.
