Case Western Reserve University
Case Western Reserve University - Comments and Student Experiences|
I have not found the professors to be particularly helpful even when emailed or spoken to. Many do not have open office hours without appointments, and some will not return email.
While not abundant parties are generally good. If you plan on sleeping however do not attempt to go to more than 1 party a week. Missing one night of study time will probably put you three days behind schedule and you will spend the rest of the week paying for that.
Do get involved with any clubs you plan to join during the first week as it will be much harder to join later in the year. On the upside Case looks excellent on a resume and if you can survive here you will be pretty set for surviving anything life throws at you.
With regards to academics, classes are not that different from other universities; your grades reflect how much effort you put into studying. If you didn't have trouble in the past academically, then Case shouldn't be that bad. If your wondering most professors are friendly and nice but make sure you look at individual reviews.
Here is a simple list of a few things I like and don't like about Case:
1.)that the campus looks nice
2.)that there are a variety of clubs
I don't like
1.) that the food and the food service is atrocious
2.) that the gym is far away and is a bit run down
3.) that the dining halls and certain facilities have weird open hours
4.) that the campus is long so it's a 15-20 minute walk from the freshman dorms to the gym/classes
5.) that there is somewhat of a lack of activities for students
6.) that cleveland can be ghetto as hell
7.) that cleveland has dreary weather
8.) that the city itself doesn't have much to offer
9.) that if you don't have a car it sucks to get anywhere outside of campus
Case has all the things that other schools offer. It just may be much harder to find them here than other places.
