Pros

As one would expect at a top engineering school, I've learned a tremendous amount and had the opportunity to work with a lot of very smart people.

Cons

Must pay out of pocket for health insurance. While I have been fortunate, in most cases funding must be renewed each year, leading to uncertainty at times. Conference travel expenses are only supported partially by the school, which means a lot of out of pocket costs for conferences that aren't within driving distance.

  1. RPI is a great place to learn and research, but does not compensate well.
