If I could do it all over again I wouldn't go to a different school. Academics wise it was a good fit for me and when it comes down to it I have met so many people that have impacted my life in such great ways. There are the few that make dumb choices but overall I have had some good times. Between swing dancing, skiing, friends, and campus activities, there is rarely a dull day.

The academics are some of the best I've ever seen. Very knowledgeable professors, great curriculum, expedient registration, and plenty of study areas. The only downside is that there is typically a huge workload.

This school takes top students from all over. The school has a high drop out rate, I believe, because it is a difficult school. But, if you graduate from Montana Tech, you are most certain to be able to get a job. Classes are difficult, but the professors are very knowledgeable and care about the students.
