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, 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 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.
