Loved the school, had some really great classes and you can expand outside of your program into whatever else your interests are.

Everyone loves it here! We don't really feel like grad students here—we all are enjoying our time in Pittsburgh and with the Department of Statistics at CMU! Benefits to being a CMU grad student: - Free public transportation! - Really great school transportation as well - When you're on-campus, you feel like you're at the center of all research - Students respect grad students, and you find undergrads who want to go into programs like yours all of the time - There are always clubs doing their things at the heart of the campus; you see people juggling, slacklining, playing guitar, all on the way to class. It's a very exciting campus socially! I'm involved in several clubs, no one minds if you're a grad student. Drawbacks to being a CMU grad student: - Campus has a very different feel from my undergrad institution; it's easy to feel overwhelmed by the amount of sheer intellect all over campus. Luckily the students in my department are not competitive with each other at all. - It can be difficult to find a place accessible to campus for the first year. My commute takes between 30-45 minutes every day.

This program is very valuable and good for students who want to find a position in professional instead of academics.

Carnegie provides an incredible small school atmosphere combined with the best robotics program in the US. The other students are passionate and engaging and I love working with them!

Degree: Healthcare Management
Graduation Year: 2015

Carnegie Mellon University's Healthcare policy and management is a well structured course with emphasis on analytics that gives edge to the students to pursue high level careers in Healthcare industry efficiently. But this is a costly program and the financial aid received is not much!

Degree: Mechanical Engineering
Graduation Year: 2014

The actual program I'm in is the Masters of Product Development. While I've just started, a major pro I find is that the number of accepted students is relatively small. It allows professors to get more one-on-one time with each student. In addition, the majority of the work is a largely focused around hands on work, which is a huge plus.

Degree: Public Policy
Graduation Year: 2014

The Heinz College overall is a great school to attend. The breadth of materials covered is far more diverse and quantitatively focused than at other similar policy graduate programs. Highly recommended.
