know what you are getting yourself into when you come
to Case. The work is crazy. If you are not
ready to give 110%, everyday you are here, without exception,
I suggest reconsidering. Expect to feel like you are not
good enough, that your life will not go anywhere, and
that you are generally worthless on a pretty regular basis.
The professors make exams super difficult fully expecting at least
half the class to fail. While this can make you
fell horrible, they will curve it and you will probably
do better with your final grades than you thought was
possible given you test average.
I have not found the
professors to be particularly helpful even when emailed or spoken
to. Many do not have open office hours without appointments,
and some will not return email.
abundant parties are generally good. If you plan on sleeping
however do not attempt to go to more than 1
party a week. Missing one night of study time will
probably put you three days behind schedule and you
will spend the rest of the week paying for that.
Do get involved with any clubs you plan to join
during the first week as it will be much harder
to join later in the year.
On the upside
Case looks excellent on a resume and if you can
survive here you will be pretty set for surviving anything
life throws at you.
