Case is a great university for any scienceBrightEngineering Department
Case is a great university for any science major. I am a biomedical engineering major and am enjoying my classes so far. Many people complain about the intro classes like chem 111 and phys 121, but if you work hard in the classes and show up to class, you will generally do well. The social atmosphere is not lacking, but kids at Case are different. We are definitely more dorky and geeky. So, if you want to party and enjoy a very social atmosphere, I would suggest a different school. However, if you want a great science school with a great academic atmosphere. Come to Case. (I do admit thought that Cleveland isn't that great of a city)

I just arrived at Case.Super BrilliantEngineering Department
I just arrived at Case. So far, I'm having a great time here. The faculty and staff are very nice and surprisingly helpful. The other students are really friendly as well. I was amazed to see FREE courses offered informally by Case throughout the summer. I've attended a few of them and they are quite good.

The campus is nice, but the weather is not so good. Overall I really think I'm going to like it here.

The undergraduate process at Case is intense fromBrightEngineering Department
The undergraduate process at Case is intense from the very start, and unfortunately, many students quickly become disillusioned. I've experienced many of the trials of the engineering curriculum - marathon homework events, laughably low exam scores, etc., as well as a sometimes disappointing social environment and I understand many of the complaints that Case students have. Case isn't for everyone. You have to be willing to work both at academics and finding things to do outside of class so you don't go absolutely out of your mind. There is a lot to do here, almost to the point that the school over-programs. Most students are just worn out from the workload and would rather not make the effort to attent/participate in many of the events. If you want to have fun here, you have to be willing to make it happen for yourself. I really love being at Case - I joined a fraternity, play nearly every intramural sport, and contribue to campus organizations - and I feel that my time and money is well spent here. If you come here expecting things to just happen for you, get over that expectation very quickly or you might be in for a miserable time.
