What impressed you positively?

"I like the hospitals and the clinical experiences given early on as they assign you either a pregnant woman or a geriatric patient to follow right from day one. I also love their curriculum structure and that you are only in classes from 8-12 three days a week and 8-1 two days." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"Cleveland, I am a Case undergrad so I've been here for 4 years already and while I've gotten used to it, I don't particularly like it all that much." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"I knew tuition was expensive already but I didn't know the exact figure - $35000! And also that 60% of the class has to be Ohio residents - I thought it was a private university so it wouldn't matter." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"I was familiar with the medical school as I have taken classes there before and with the campus so it was a matter of rolling out of bed and walking over which was nice. The medical school itself is a little old, but the Biomedical Research Building and the hospitals are great. Case students always seem to be happy and I have heard nothing but good things from talking to friends who go to Case med. The interview was really relaxed and conversational, I had a PhD professor in pediatrics (I think others had the same interviewer) who was very friendly and put me at ease. She talked to me as though it was already taken for granted that I would be a physician. They didn't show the library on the tour, but I know from previous experiences that while there is a lot of information in there, I don't like the library (kind of old) but the main campus library is only 5-10 mins walk away and it's much better."
