New Mexico Institute of Mining & Technology Reviews
As a whole Ne Mexico Tech is a very good school. However it does have some issues such as the inconsistent teacher quality and the fairly poor technical system. There are some seriously amazing teachers at the school but there are also some pretty bad ones. The first thing you want to do when you come to New Mexico Tech is ask some of the older students what teachers are the best for whatever classes you need. The technical part of almost everything at New Mexico Tech has some problems and you want to do as much as possible in person. Otherwise the building(save Torres) are pretty good and sturdy though Torres has some of the newer technology. Socorro itself is fairly barren but it has the base needs of a student body. overall its a good school but you need to know what you are doing before you make major decisions, as soon as you can ask your adviser for some introductory tips as the school does not really inform the students of what they need to do from time to time.
New Mexico Tech is a very good school for academics. It is very difficult to muster up the determination to graduate, as many people drop out before graduation day. There are many people who don't graduate in the typical four years because of class difficulty. This school is very affordable as compared to many other prestigious schools but, because of the difficulty, you are still able to leave with a well respected degree. I would not necessarily recommend coming here if you are not a serious student.
If you are serious about getting a engineering or science degree, I highly recommend considering NMT. It is the cheapest STEM college around, with many opportunities for research jobs, even as an undergraduate. The town is small and there is not much to do, which will increase your chances at academic success. Less distractions lead to more studying time.
