You will be surrounded by smart people and will have a good learning curve.

Tips: A huge transition in terms of workload and lifestyle. Overall the students are friendly here.

Semester can be tough and stressful but end of the day you will have a good learning curve.

Graduate student life at CMU and Pittsburgh city is amazing

Tips: The city is beautiful and peaceful but different from India in terms of people, culture and lifestyle. If you receive scholarships then try negotiating with the school for a better offer if possible. Give time for the city to open up to you and be open to new possibilities.

Amazing experience at CMU!

Tips: There was a huge cultural shift. But people here made me feel more inclusive. I got a scholarship of 50k dollars. University supported me for the scholarship. This decision was worth every penny. Every day here is a new learning day. After 7 years of experience, I felt my learning curve was getting better, but here I started pushing myself out of my comfort zone which was very important.
