    Bunch of nerds and kids that think they are sick cause they pound down four lokos at some lame house party. Social life is pretty low-key, most people are nerds and are more likely to spend a weekend watching Netflix than getting wasted. The school has a very high workload, so be prepared for lengthy assignments, late nights, coffee There is a lot on campus that helps students succeed. The school for the most part is very socially awkward. A large amount of kids do not know how to interact with other people. The school also doesn't really support social events or the night life of a college student. ...Continue reading

    CWRU provides an outstanding education and student experience. Case's programs are one of a kind with amazing professors. There's so much to do in Cleveland, and so many people that you're guaranteed to find your group. My biggest disappointments are that school pride is a little lacking and the meal plans need major work. I love CWRU. Overall the school has a lot of resources, isn't too big, has a lot of useful places nearby, great academics, and has in my experience a welcoming culture. On the downside the area is wrought with crime but on campus your safe (just not much further), and the food more or less sucks. ...Continue reading

    Case is superb academically, and for building connections. I don't mean it's the best school on earth or that you'll have an amazing time guaranteed if you attend Case, but it has so much potential. You get out of it what you put into it -- your interest, proactiveness, outgoingness etc. are rewarded here. There is so much to see and do and experience, all you need to do is pursue it. Lots of parties (as far as I can tell) and plenty of social events to keep you busy. Also has oodles of research opportunities to take advantage of even as a freshman. Expect long walks to class. ...Continue reading

    Food is not so good. It gets very depressing. The school is nestled into what may be the safest area in Cleveland, but that's not saying much.

    Love it here!!!! So many opportunities and you are never bored! The coursework is really challenging, and the culture is really nerdy (for the most part).

    It's honestly just an amazing school. Never have I met so many people who were so kind, caring, and passionate while being super academically driven and competitive in my entire life.

    Feeling safe is the biggest issue on campus. It rises in the rankings faster then any other school I know (and I watch), with an acceptance rate dropping 20% a year at the time of this writing.

    This school is overall good, especially for the engineering & pre-health students. They're more focused on their research, which makes sense since that's what they do. Some teachers are worse than others though. Overall lots of opportunities, good people and clubs, food sucks, and the education you get is better than average. People don't care about the way they look (a nice way of saying people are a little less pretty than in other cities). There are significantly more douchy people here than in other cities. Nobody checks them, so be prepared to run into some fights. School is incredibly nerdy. It's a highly stressful/frustrating student experience. ...Continue reading

    The busses aren't great, but the RTA is super convenient for going off campus.

There are many opportunities to get involved and good internship/co-op potentials. ...Continue reading

    I could not be much happier with the exception of the food. It has a lot of opportunities that you would find in much larger cities.

    I love it here. It amazes me how the quarterback can be best friends with a band member, there's no snobbery like that here.

    Case is an extremely dynamic campus. Yes, Cleveland is kind of a crappy city but the campus is very safe, it even has it's own REAL police department (not rent a cops). There a lot of little shops, restaurants, and museums near by, as well as major sports teams. The internet SUCKS in common areas, especially peak times of the day (8:30am to 2pm-ish). The money that you put in you definitely see coming back to students in the form of activities, free stuff, etc. ...Continue reading

    The stereotypes people associate with Case and Cleveland are true. The longer you're here the less they care about you.

    As a proud Spartan, I cannot imagine having chosen any other school besides Case. For better or for worse, it has a small-school, private feel.

Cleveland is decent. ...Continue reading

  • Overall school rating 2/5
    You'll get an excellent education here, and even if Case isn't one of the most well known schools in the country, companies certainly know it, so your degree will hold weight. The faculty and programs are great, and there are many networking and professional events that are there for the taking. However, much of the school is introverted, making the social scene hard to come by unless you're Greek. If you're looking for the stereotypical college experience, don't come here. ...Continue reading

    The professors are mainly here for research, so very few actually care about your learning experience. The clubs and sports here are extremely inclusive and have tons of variety. The students can be quite unsociable, but you can always find that one person who you just click with. The work is ALWAYS hard, no matter what major you have. It's so cold, frostbite is actually a problem here. Greek life is AMAZING. Only few courses provided in each semester. New knowledge and cutting-edge technology is not available. ...Continue reading
