What Students Are Saying

4.06 Average Rating
Carnegie Mellon is known for being academically rigorous. It was even featured on The Simpson's for it's toughness. That being said, there is a lot of help available to all students. Upperclassmen are very willing to help, as well as Teachers who hold multiple office hours and answer emails quickly.
Sam from Pittsburgh, PA
Definitely a academically rigorous school, but is not highly competitive among the students. The community is extremely supportive and students are willing to go out of their way to help one another.
It's true, you have to work very hard.
