The classes are boring and assign a large amount of unnecessary busy work. The teachers are nice, but there's practically no time available to get to know them. There is no time for extracurriculars like music or theater unless you want to sacrifice being able to regularly get a normal amount of sleep. Do not come here if you have any interests aside from engineering, math, or science that you would like to pursue.
responseAs a graduate, I know for a fact that the first year is quite rough, but as someone who did both music and theater and sports while at Mudd and graduated with honors and friends with many of the teachers… give it time :)
response2 years later… still hate it. This school has significantly turned me off math which used to be one of my favorite subjects. You're right that there's more free time but that doesn't change that the classes suck.
