March 2015 | FORMER STUDENT

Uppers

High quality faculty. Unique extracurricular opportunities. Great area to go to school.

Downers

Certain favored, highly specialized departments seem to get disproportionate attention from the administration.

Comments

Case Western provides some very unique opportunities in certain specialized areas of law. If these particular areas do not interest you, it may be prudent to look elsewhere given the high tuition.

Academics

Class sizes are reasonable.
Case has a great study abroad program, and allows you to earn credit from abroad programs organized by other schools as well.
Many of the faculty are specialists in their areas and have been quoted extensively for their teaching areas.

Quality of Life

The University Circle area has a lot to offer - great museums, incredible local restaurants, and shopping close by.

Admissions

I liked that I had the opportunity to visit the school at a Preview Day after I was admitted. I got to meet other classmates, see what a law class was like, and ask all kinds of questions to current students, faculty, and staff.

Academics

The professors are fantastic. However the school is lacking big time in its business law program and is having a very hard time finding professors to hire. We also have way too many international law classes. And way too many centers.

Quality of Life

Cost of living is cheap. The campus is beautiful. The facilities suck (especially the gym). The library is ok. The computer labs are ok. The moot court room is ok. Housing is non existent for grad students. Dining is fair. The neighborhood is beautiful and rich in culture. The crime is crappy and scary. I am generally very happy in this area.

Admissions

The school is very disorganized when it comes to admission. It is hard to figure out the status of your application, when you should hear from the school. I think it was rolling admission. I had to call the school to find out I was admitted - they never called me. I also don't remember getting very much scholarship information. I wasn't offered a scholarship coming in because my LSAT scores were not high, but because I was in the top 10% after first year, I advocated for a scholarship and received a small one for my 2nd and 3rd years. Other students had their scholarships increase significantly because they performed well.

Quality of Life

I don't think there are any "on campus" housing options for law students, but we all pretty much live within a mile radius of each other so spending time together outside of school is really easy. Living in an urban area you of course have to be careful walking alone late at night and should lock your doors during the day.

Admissions

There were specific application questions, the LSAT score was I think a little bit above average. Scholarships you're automatically considered for upon application.
