Case was more forgiving than most other colleges, inAug 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.

I know Case alumni who feel they had aNov 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.
