A)...be super smart and gifted and ace the standardized tests (ACT, SAT) and/or be valedictorian of your high school and/or do something else to prove you are a super-genius (start a charity, start a business, be Asian, etc).
or, what I did
B) Do well enough in high school academically to be in the top 10-25% of your high school class, be in a bunch of high school programs to prove you are a diverse student, and write really good essays on your application. They really emphasize diversity here.
Case was more forgiving than most other colleges, in terms of GPA. I had a 2.9999 GPA (ridiculous, right?), a 32 on ACT's, a 2190 on SAT's, really good recommendations, and a good essay.

I think the test scores did the trick.
I know Case alumni who feel they had a good experience at this college.
I do not recommend anyone do anything to get into this school. I recommend that they run, especially if you are a minority. You will not get the respect you deserve as a human being and a scholar at this school. You will be screwed over, shone the door, and you will be told it is all your fault.
Apply elsewhere. I wish I had.
The school has a 70% acceptance rate. You won't have any trouble getting in. Hell, I knew two people that failed out their first semester, and they weren't the worst students.
