<p>Also, I have a question about Carnegie Mellon. I've heard a rumor that Carnegie Mellon is a very miserable(?) college....In your opinion, was/is your time at Carnegie Mellon miserable?
Because I heard that..
- The college itself is too computer science focused
- Majors not related to computers are inferior
- It is boring because of the lack of a social enviornment</p>
<p>I visited and liked Carnegie Mellon's campus and location but my opinion is becoming very volatile because I would, of course, like to have a good college experience...Anything to defend Carnegie Mellon?</p>
