Senior: I owe almost all of my current success, from amazing post-graduation job offers, to previous opportunities, to RPI. Although the graduate program at Rensselaer is phenomenal, the school is made up of mostly undergraduates. I highly recommend high school students, who plan on studying any STEM field, to come here for this reason. I have received so many projects and conference opportunities through research and academia, that a similarly elite engineering school would not be able to offer, at the same quality, for undergraduates. My only negative assessment is that RPI has limited much Greek activity, due to liability concerns and a past controversy. That being said, I have faith that much of the passionate alumni will be able to fix this problem, and be able to separate the good houses from the bad house. Overall, however, RPI offers an outstanding education, and as a computer science major, I am very thankful for all the opportunities and connections I have had/made here.
