Major: Mechanical Engineering (This Major's Salary over time)
Stanford is a place of great educational opportunity. I rejected full tution scholarships to Caltech and Texas A&M and active recruitment by Rice to come here. In retrospect, I regret my decision. Sure, this place has one of the best engineering schools in the nation. However, in my four years here I constantly had professors questioning my ability to get through Stanford. 'You should question your commitment to Stanford,' was one professor's comment on a paper I wrote for her. My major advisor told me my GRE scores were 'too low' despite the fact they were good enough to get me into some of the top engineering graduate schools in the nation. After several years of this I've just about had enough. I have met a lot of wonderful people and the Stanford name has its advantages, but they just can't make up for all the long nights and less than satisfying results.

I am going to be doing a site visit at Stanford, and want to interview the professors (I don't care so much about the campus). To narrow my search, who were your favorite Professors in the engineering dept. (the ones that really inspired you)?
