Question
CMU is a great university.Quite BrightAnimal Studies
CMU is a great university. It is really challenging for me and I like challenges. Most people don't judge one another so you can be your true self. It's really fun and the faculty are really nice. I recommend going to this college. I learned many things and this college is really helpful. Everyone is friendly and has school spirit. it's a great school.

Question
Students at CMU spend a lot of timeQuite BrightBiology
Students at CMU spend a lot of time working and professors have high expectation. This makes the social life not as good as a less rigorous college. However, I came out of CMU a much smarter person and better problem solver than I came in as. It is very easy to get involved with research, and there are a lot of students clubs. Pittsburgh is a decent city to go to college in. CMU also is a bit less bureaucratic than many other top tier universities is. CMU is a great size. It's big enough that there's lots of opportunities and recruiters know about the school, but small enough that you will be able to get to know your classmates and professors.
