CMU a New Ivy


CMU a New Ivy, an online source for student-written college reviews, has listed Carnegie Mellon among its “New Ivies.” Editors of the website, which targets high school students and parents, surveyed more than 30,000 students at 225 colleges for their opinions about their own schools and peer institutions for this new ranking.

One student summed up CMU as “a place where you walk in smart, you walk out smarter, and you learn all you can.” Read the review at

Other “New Ivies” include: Duke, Johns Hopkins, NYU, Northwestern, Tufts, Virginia, Washington University in St. Louis, Wellesley and Williams.
