Positive Negative Neutral Advice
I'm a junior at Case and I thinkQuite BrightHistory/Histories (art history/etc.)
I'm a junior at Case and I think that a minority of people are negative and spend their time playing videogames, but for people that want to have fun they can definitely find fun things to do on the weekends and weekdays. There's The Spot on Wednesdays, you can go down to the flats for college nights on Thursdays (girl's you don't have to be 21) a lot of fraternity parties and apartment parties, and you don't have to be in greek life to go to these parties either, contrary to what some might say. There are people here from all over that are friendly and nice, you just have to be open to meeting new people. And yes you do have to study a lot, but a social life is not out of the question. A lot of people, including myself, have a decent social life, are involved in the campus, are in clubs, yet still make the dean's list and get good grades. At Case there is a lot of complaining about the lack of partying, but there are definitely at least two parties a weekend that are usually good and on some weekends there are endless strings of parties that you can't even make all of them. My advice is if you come to Case then take advantage of the unique student body and get involved because it's easy to do and fun. I would also recommend joining greek life. Even though most of my close friends are not greek I still think it's a great experience.

Question
Case taught me to be proactive, to seekMath
Case taught me to be proactive, to seek out relationships with professors, and to be diplomatic but persistent. The coursework was challenging, even for someone ranked at the top of her high school class -- but that's what I wanted, I didn't want to be handled with kid gloves.

I was lucky to start dating a commuter my second year -- someone with a car, who knew the city well, and introduced me to all the great things to do near campus, like Coventry and Shaker Village. I also got involved in campus activities, and created events on campus that kept me engaged. I spent some time playing with moos and muds too, but there's much more to campus life than just hanging out in dorm rooms and taking advantage of the high speed internet connections.Case's reputation is well respected among graduate schools, and I had my pick of acceptances to PhD programs once I decided to go back to school. Graduate coursework was a breeze, because I knew how to organize my time and stay on top of things, since that's what was expected of the undergrads at Case.

Question
I went to Case undergraduate only because IPreMed and Medical
I went to Case undergraduate only because I was accepted to the Pre-professional Scholar in Medicine program. I really did not like the undergraduate school there. Most of the pre-meds were extremely hyper and unpleasant. Medical school was a completely different story. The first two years are much more easy going than most other medical schools because all tests are pass/fail with no class rank. In the last two years, many become hyper-competitive so they can rank high and get into desirable residencies, which was the only aspect I disliked . The quality of education is very good, and it was overall a good experience.
