“Undergraduate Experience at Case Western”
November 2017CURRENT STUDENT
Uppers

Top notch departments in wide variety of fields, particularly sciences, beautiful campus, in an underrated urban environment.

Downers

Like any Midwestern school, the winters can be dreary, but made up for in easy to get around campus with lots of dining, entertainment, and recreational opportunities.

Comments

Great choice for students looking for the same breath of options at a mega university,but in a smaller, more intimate college community.

Would You Recommend

Yes

“Excellent engineering program”
March 2015FORMER STUDENT
Uppers

Very smart students. You'll meet people who will motivate you to succeed.

Downers

Like most engineering schools, not the best social atmosphere. It's in Cleveland, Ohio -- not as exciting as Boston, NYC, or many other places.

Comments

If you're looking for a good engineering program with very bright and motivated students, this is a good place. If you're looking to party and not study very much, you could pick many better alternatives.

Would You Recommend

Yes

Very rigorous major requirements, especially for science majors such as myself. Some general requirements seem unneeded, but they do not interfere much. Intense workload in almost all courses. Students are competitive, but still help each other out a lot. Teachers are tough graders, but getting good grades is still manageable. Advisors and staff are regularly accessible. Most classes have student instructors that hold supplemental sessions. It is incredibly easy to find research here.

Quality of Life

Freshman dorms are a bit cramped, but upperclassman dorms are very nice. Facilities are all very modern and useful. Food on campus is excellent, and there are a few restaurants around that accept the meal plan. Cost of living is relatively low. The surrounding neighborhood is a bit unsafe at night--a few students have had their wallets taken, but nobody was hurt. There is a good escort system to keep you safe when walking at night.

Admissions

Supplemental applications, early action, common application, financial aid, SAT tests

Academics

Core writing classes, school-spacific core curriculum, large lecture halls for intro-level classes, small and manageable sizes for more specific classes.

Quality of Life

Expensive, standard to nice housing, well-maintained facilities, sketchy neighborhood, FANTASTIC campus security. Many students complain, but are on the whole happy.

We have a SAGES program, which is essentially english in disguise.

Quality of Life

Expensive, but good quality. The area is a bit dangerous, but they do try their best to keep us safe.

I applied early action. My school was also on the Common Application.
