I regret attending Caltech. Although I had some great classmates, the academic experience was abysmal. The faculty is hired for their research ability, not for the quality of their teaching. Therefore most professors have zero interest in teaching. I could have received a better education at many other schools, but I stayed in order to earn my degree because of the reputation. Unfortunately the reputation doesn?t help much outside of academic circles. Because of the small size, many people in the business world don?t know about Caltech. There is intense pressure due to the pace of classroom as well as the natural competitiveness of the student body. While I was an undergrad, there was at least one suicide every year.
