Student, Pittsburgh Institute of Aeronautics, Class of 2016,
The typical student at the Pittsburgh Institute of Aeronautics is very blue collar. Most of them come to school with dirt and grease under their fingernails. We have plenty of reading and studying to do, the school places a high value on academics, but most everyone there is ready to get their hands dirty. A student needs mostly one thing to excel here: work-ethic. There is a lot of work to get done at school, and the job field will be much more demanding.
