I have so far loved my experience at Caltech. I came with a solid though not unusual background in math and science but with a true passion for it. I wanted to be immersed in the books, and found lots of people who could teach me anything I wanted to learn and were glad to do it. So if you're truly excited about math and science (especially if you're excited about all kinds of it) and don't mind doing LOTS of it, you'll probably like it here very much. The faculty are approachable, the kids are wonderful, and the resources are to my knowledge unmatched by any other place in the country or the world.

There are, however, lots of bitter people here. I think it's mostly so because they like to sleep, and don't like to work as much as Caltech forces them to. Also, collaboration is definitely a key to survival here =).
