I love my experience at Case.Quite BrightAnthropology
I love my experience at Case. I had the experience to take courses at the museum of natural history and a summer internship. Like many students at Case I started out in engineering and quickly discovered that wasn't for me. Luckly the other departments at Case are also great. The faculty at case are very kind and helpful. I have had no problems whatsoever. At first I didn't like the architecture of the campus because it is a mix match of all decades but after learning how our school is a mix match of other universities I began to see it as a unique feature of our school. I can see how Case might not be for everyone and recommend that prospective students visit the campus and see how they fit with the school. If you can stay the night, the admissions office will assign you a current student that you could learn a lot from. We do have our share of "dorks" on campus. Mostly because "dorks" tend to be smart. The social life is there however if you get out of your dorm and find it. I am very at home at case and extremely glad I made this decision.

Question
Even though there are many problems with theSuper BrilliantComputer Science
Even though there are many problems with the undergraduate program, it was much worse when I started here in 2000. Every year, the incoming class seems more well-rounded than the one before it, and the social atmosphere is constantly improving. Furthermore, although some people feel there is little to do in Cleveland, they are very wrong. I can name 50 things to do any night of the week, any day of the year. I've found that Cleveland is a fun city to live in, and it has a lot of fun people.

Question
Case is really what you make of it.Quite BrightBiology
Case is really what you make of it. If you expect to have a social life handed to you at the door, then go to a state school. Case is one of the few schools that will never discourage you from trying to be a dual major in any two disparate fields, or from taking classes from the med school. Many junior and senior level classes are also first semester classes for graduate students, and the university provides many opportunities to conduct research. Most people who whine about Case never even try to find something fun to do. Approximately half thestudent body sits in their room complaining about how there is nothing fun to do, and playing one game or another. If you're willing to leave your room then case can be a pretty fun place though.
