  • I think people here are confused when they write a review about CMU. This is meant to be a review of the tour and NOT the University! The campus tour is about an hour led by a resident student. Howeve...  more »
  • My son chose CMU as his collegiate commitment and we made the trek east (8 hrs) to visit CMU. The school is laid out in a classic fashion, but is 21st century all the way. Great architecture, great fa...  more »
  • It's one of the top universities in the nation. It's a nice compact campus (that's what you get with a school that's smaller than the giant state schools) with buildings old and new. Visit during Spri...  more »

  • In 1990 Carnegie Mellon U. appeared on PBS as students were working on robotics operating a pizza shop. Some former family friend's sent their daughter to CMU it was a big deal for them. Their daughter was a C average student with a portfolio who chose to study costume design at CMU for 4 years. I would much rather study robotics and would love to walk into a calzone shop and see robots in action making dough and assembling and baking the calzone. I don't care for the world my mother inhabits and those former family friends bug me what they do to improve their prestige and status [what a waste of time, honestly]. "Now Tommy you need to wear this costume for this play." The fabric needs to go here and not there and be this color. Why should I care. I don't like the humanities and art is not such a big deal to me that I'd like to NOT learn and figure out a single about science/technology. I think my mother is bored by the Hubble telescope. We don't really get along. Does anyone from that documentary remember the robotics project. I have no idea why engineering students are required to take humanities classes meanwhile the humanities students dont have to take a single challenging class
  • CMU is a fantastic school. I went there 40 years ago but come back to visit every year, and it just keeps getting better. Now, everyone will say that about their Alma Mater, but honestly, the level to which CMU improves year to year is on par with any of the top-rated schools. The education you get here is excellent, and will serve you well if you apply yourself. It is also high-stress, so this kind of education is not for the faint-of-heart, but when you survive long enough to graduate, there is NOTHING you can't do!
  • Went on a tour, the tour guides were very unfriendly, didnt tell us anything and the atmosphere did not feel friendly and welcoming, more so it felt stressful. Never been so unimpressed! The campus is okay though.
  • If you really wanna do something great in your life...CMU is the place....Sky is the limit!!!
  • Great school! Fantastic classes and research opportunities in computer science, and lots of students genuinely interested in learning.
