Case Western Reserve University
Case Western Reserve University - Comments and Student Experiences|
I was so honored to be chosen to go to Case. I worked so hard for each of my grades at my last college, I finished most of Associate Degree in two semesters and a summer session, and I already had a cutting edge research project in mind. I was ready for the challenge. What I wasn't ready for was incompetence, egomania, and blatent neglect. I can only guess that the people who donate large sums of money to the institution do so because they are not made aware of that students are actually driven away from this school by the droves. I can also only imagine that the faculty and staff are so very full of themselves and the 'Case' reputation that they prefer to ignore the simple fact that the hype does not match the reality of the situation.I allowed this institution to waste a semester of my time and I would urge anyone, including my worst enemy, not to make the same mistake. There are better Universities and you all are good students, you can get into one. Bypass this nightmare and choose a school that cares about its students, their lives, and their futures. If you don't, you can never say I didn't warn you!
4. A lot of my friends transferred out from Case either after their first year or second year.
5. You will be miserable because of the serious lack of a female population6. Only if you're absolutely sure you want to do engineering or biomed as a career should you consider this school.
And don't even get me started about the faculty! One of my teachers--the teacher for the first THREE courses in Electrical Engineering, all of which are required, doesn't even have office hours! He has a full-time job at Nasa, which he will never fail to remind you in his lessons. His job involves designing circuits, and it shows--all he'll ever do in class is draw out circuits he designed, and give a terrible explanation of them (mostly consisting of telling you what he just drew). The quizzes he gives you are an exercise in remembering exact quotes by him--sometimes having to recide metaphors he said once in class a week prior.
The campus is full of ugly statues, gloomy and overworked students, and faculty that care ten times as much about their research as your education. The bottom line: This is your backup school. Only go here if you absolutely NEED to. And be prepared to fend off misery.
