Carnegie Mellon was filled with entitled undergraduate students who thought they coukd get away with a lot. This is what I noticed through grading and teaching there. It wasn't bad for graduate school as long as you can find friends outside of the school itself. Pittsburgh is a great city.

No only are the programs some of the top in the world, the professors are some of the greatest educators. It is hard to find a research university that also has such a strong focus on the education and future of its students. Carnegie Mellon is one of the few.

Definitely a top program (if not the top). If you are passionate about energy, committed, smart, and willing to make a change, this program is for you. It will give the tools you need in an 'Energy' world, and you get the chance to learn from the bests.

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.

Chemical Engineering at Carnegie Mellon is a very social group, yet has very high academic expectations and the credentials to warrant it. Pittsburgh is a wonderful city that is student friendly, but has more to offer than just college life. And yes, you will have time to explore the city. Cost of living is very reasonable, and your id gets you a free bus pass. Unfortunately, the school use of technology is often lacking, which is surprising given the caliber of the computer science department. What is perhaps lacking in technology is made up for in professor accessibility. Professors teach the classes in engineering, and are around to answer questions regarding academics and life in general. Overall, CMU Engineering is a great choice for someone looking for something academically challenging in a fun and liveable city.
