I personally worked with a Carnegie Mellon guy, who said they hate MIT.
I was leaning toward CMU over MIT because at CMU there is alot more diversity in students, they have CFA and many other engineering schools. Everybody at MIT is a tech-ky.
my decision to choose CMU over MIT
In short, I think that for students, especially for undergrads, there is a saturation point beyond which additional academic activities can't fit into peoples' lives. It's a fantastic experience to be an undergraduate in a world-class department. I'm not sure it matters that the department is gigantic.
one of these things is not like the other
