Carnegie Mellon University

Project Description

Student time spent studying at CMU

Project Abstract

There is a belief that Carnegie Mellon students are overworked relative to their peers in other
colleges. Our survey sets out to assess whether this statement is true based on student's responses
on their estimated workload and comparing that against national surveys and statistics that have
been done. Furthermore, we want to survey students´┐Ż thoughts on whether based on their belief of
expected compensation after graduation (ie. job outlook, average starting salary, etc), they believe
that the workload is worth the time. We will ask CMU students how much time they spend
studying for their classes on average per week. We will then compare the results to the national
average as determined by several national surveys.
