Toxic environment.Quite BrightPhysics
Toxic environment. On paper pretty good, you will lose grip on mental health and the things that makes you interestingly and uniquely you. If you are a minority, or belong to a marginalized group you are taking an L ( a loss )

Question
I would have changed two things about myPhysics
I would have changed two things about my time at Mudd:
1) I would have gotten a more sleep. I didn't realize how much sleep deprivation was affecting me until I started sleeping properly2) I wish I had spent more time/the school had spent more time on how to study. Coming from a high school where I spent literally about 15 minutes to study for exams to get an A, it was a really rough transition that I never quite got the hang of.

Question
Harvey Mudd College was a unique experience withBrightEngineering Department
Harvey Mudd College was a unique experience with a chance to experience top notch academics and make some wonderful lifelong friends. HMC really prepared me for chemical engineering graduate school and the semiconductor industry.

I was probably not as prepared as I could have been for the difficulty of the math and science at Mudd so it took me about 2 years to catch up, but I stuck it out and I'm glad I did. Junior and Senior year were terrific as I found my niche in chemical engineering. An unexpected bonus was the quality of the economics offerings. These courses really helped me with financial decisions and investments as an adult.
