There's a thread on the Caltech forum about the extreme workload and people's difficulty with having time to assimilate the information. Would current Mudders (or mudders of Mudders) who have time comment on this thread or the information in general as it pertains to Mudd?
The basic concern is that there is just too much information to not only cover but also learn/understand. The OP is a student who wants a good education but also wants time to play with his new knowledge. My son's favorite school is Mudd, and this is our main concern about Mudd as well.
