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.

Aug 31 2012Mechanical Engineering 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.

Nov 17 2011Psychology 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.
Jul 20 2011Electrical Engineering 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.
Apr 30 2011Chemistry Not remotely hard. I see a huge mix of high school credentials. This ranges from people who got rejected literally everywhere (affirmative action students) and those who where valedictorians of their high school (but if they're from Ohio, they're still pretty dumb). Mostly people who didn't get in anywhere better. A lot of people seemed to have decent SATs, they seemed to care a lot less about GPAs. I know a 2.0 who got in with huge amounts of money. I think that you do stand a better chance if you apply to the humanities; a lot of them seemed to have weaker stats (even though there is a "one door" admissions policy).
