What impressed you positively?

"Really friendly, warm people that seem to have a happy and tight community. Dean Horwitz has great vision for the school and for its student body... it seems like a very forward-thinking place. I like that the curriculum is moving to include more small group learning in addition to lecture, and I looove that the grading is REAL P/F, no honors, no ranking. I would also, most of all, like to give a shout out to the best damn rap session ever ;-)" Report Response

"Cleveland as a city doesn't excite me. But that's not Case's fault, and wouldn't keep me from attending the school." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"Hmmm... nothing in particular comes to mind." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"I had a great day, and came out loving the school! Ellen in admissions is AWESOME; she was so friendly and helpful and cool. In fact, everyone I met was friendly and helpful and cool. I enjoyed both of my interviewers very much (the faculty interview is open file and the student interview is closed, by the way). After an acceptance to one of my top-choice schools in November, this is the only interview I kept, and I'm really glad I did." Report Response
