What impressed you positively?

"The people at Case seemed to really want me to attend their school even more than other schools that would be considered much less prestigious universities. Cleveland seems like an easy place to live relative to other cities. It isn't drastically colder than the Central Midwest where I am from (I've checked on the internet averages). Most people live within walking distance from the school and it is affordable." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"Tuition is not fixed and is approaching $40,000. The financial aid office does seem very helpful though." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"I came from a small school with no research experience and didn't seem to have either held against me because I got my acceptance letter in the mail 6 business days after the interview!" Report Response

What are your general comments?

"I can't stress how smooth and simple the day was. We were there from 8-1 (some had their interview after the 12 noon tour) and when the day was over it seemed like we had just been at ease all day. I would recommend talking to the other students because they are very interesting and can take your mind off of the interview. I found it difficult (impossible for me) to find a student host but I did wait until 2 weeks prior to interview day. In my opinion, Case should be ranked top 15 instead of just top 25. The hospitals including Cleveland Clinic are some of the best, however CC is about 1/2 mile away so we didn't get to tour it. The students have plenty of free time to pursue other interests and are encouraged to do so. Case does require a thesis for graduation, but the options are endless and I'm very glad I didn't let this stop me from applying." Report Response
