What impressed you positively?

"Everyone seems to love Case a lot and the students and faculty seem to be very excited about the changes going on at the school. The dean has started a research and thesis requirement (doesn't sound like too much work, seem to be similar to an undergrad thesis) and really recommends international rotations, which was pretty exciting. Overall I like the direction Case is going in. The campus is really nice too." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"Cleveland isn't the prettiest thing to look at, but I really didn't see much of the nightlife . . . maybe when I go back for second look. The tuition is kind of expensive and it is not fixed." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"The Case school shuttle that takes you from the hotel (near the Cleveland Clinic) to the school only comes every 30min! Get there early or you won't make it on time. I almost missed the opening presentation by the dean. " Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Overall very positive. Case has nice facilities, the faculty seemed to be very excited, and students friendly and engaging. The interview itself was very very laid back, I had almost no questions and it seemed to be more a discussion than anything else. My interviewer had also gone through my app with a lot attention, she really knew my info and made the interview a much more personal experience than other schools I went to." Report Response
