I think Case Western Reserve University has its pros, such as reasonable class sizes, and ability to get research opportunities for those seeking, also its proximity to hospitals and state of the art healthcare building. I think the food is better than some other colleges, but the dining halls has it's good and bad days. There really isn't a huge party scene, but there are parties when you're looking.
There's a lot of shit at this school but college is what u make it. I found the good stuff here.. Took a lot of effort but hey im happy.
If you want to go do med school, engineering, or the hard sciences, then it\'s the school for you, otherwise, give it a passing thought. The freshman dorms aren\'t the greatest, the on-campus food is decent at best, and the neighborhood around is full of over-priced merchandise and dangerous. The kids here are alright, some of them are great, but a lot of them that I\'ve met either act like crackheads or are crackheads. Honestly, if you haven\'t found your group of friends within the the first two months, you\'ll have a hard time finding them since it\'s not a big undergrad class. To be completely honest, the only thing keeping me here right now is the fact that it\'s a top 50 school.
Everyone here is frustrated in one way or another. Anyone who is academically driven wishes that they got into their dream school and anyone who wants a social life is constantly faced with the fact that nobody here wants to party. Most people who want to actually enjoy themselves go to Ohio State or Kent to actually go wild. And anyone who wants to succeed academically tries to transfer after getting a 4.0 GPA. There are certainly a lot of amazing people at CWRU, and if you find the right group of people you can make very close friends, bonded by a hatred of shared homework.

Don’t be afraid. I know you’re shy and nervous, and while locking yourself in your dorm room may seem comfortable, it’s not a good idea. It might be hard to force yourself to meet new people, but try. Otherwise, you’ll just get lonely as the year progresses, when everyone else has already made friends. But also don’t worry too much if you can’t, you’ll find friends eventually.
No one will be there to make sure you do your homework. In fact, usually no one will even check if you do. Do it anyway—the extra practice will come in handy. Try to study with a friend if possible, so you won’t be tempted to slack off. You’re a good student though, so even if the workload and material might seem daunting, you’ll be fine. And there’s plenty of help available if you’re still worried.
Finally, make sure you do something other than study. Once again, don’t stay in your room all day. Take a break, and try to join some clubs, learn new things. Don’t end your first year with any regrets.
Some. Stereotypes come from people and surveys and the people who fill out the 'I hate Case' surveys are mostly people who sit in their room not looking for the fun and excitement that is constantly going on around Case.
Complaining is a favorite past time for many students who wish that fun and enjoyable activities would just show up at their door.
The administration of this school is entirely incompetent. It seems like everything they put in place turns into a disaster. The SAGES program is so worthless and so badly put together that it's already being considered for cancellation (they've already dropped it for engineers) after only a three years of its full implementation! Their public relations campaigns cost the school millions of dollars and only seem to make more people angry. Nobody knows what the rules are or what you need to do to get what you want done, so you have to figure everything out yourself. It's a lot more work to go to school here than it's worth, and that doesn't even have anything to do with the classes themselves.
My classmates are interesting, but can be very social awkward.
The political science department is pretty small, so most of the professors I've had class with know my name. The classes range from extremely boring and useless to pretty darn good, but it's not consistent across the board. Most of the professors here don't really like to teach and are just here to do research, especially in the maths and sciences. Most students here think they are a lot smarter than they really are, and walking around campus you'll hear lots of people talking about classes or how dumb their professors are. The truth is though, that Case accepts more than three-quarters of their applicants so they don't really weed out any of the dumber kids. I feel like my education is geared towards learning for the sake of learning, because there sure isn't any help getting a job for kids in the social sciences.

Case Western Reserve University maintains a strong pre-professional focus while also emphasizing the undergraduate experience. Furthermore, the university is unique in that it is relatively small yet has a large impact in both research and service. Finally, Case Western Reserve University successfully assembles a diverse class of students each year, and promotes classes that engage different students in meaningful discussions which facilitate the growth and expansion of ideas.
If I had to describe Case in one sentence, it would be difficult to encapsulate all that it is. However, it all boils down to one word: Challenging.
Someone who only wants to party and doesn't care about their academic involvement.
I would say the most frustrating aspect of Case is the difficulty in getting bookkeeping or other, non-academic activities done. Case is trying to go totally digital for all their admissions and such, but it's not well implemented and very confusing.
How much work I'd have for each class
People who want to work hard academically, want a school which prepares you for graudate work, and also want to be in a cultural center of the city of Cleveland.
Opportunities after undergrad.
I don't brag. Case Western sucks.
CWRU is best known for its academics. Our sports are not strong, and at times we study on Friday night. Many students value high academic acheivement, and often their scholarships are maintained by a high GPA. It does not mean you cannot enjoy your college years, just that the fun will not compromise your study. Besides the typical college experience of fraternities, football, and bars, there are ocal cultural institutions and opportunities to work or study abroad. College is what you make it. Explore and enjoy!
Case is viewed as the geek school. There is also a feeling that there are no parties here. This is NOT TRUE! While there are "geeks" here most people are what you would call normal, however most people here are very smart! Also there are parties here, I went to more than one last weekend!
There are no "options" at Case. Every student is contractually obligated to be on a meal plan for the first two full years if they want to obtain this education. Because the meal plan is this king of monopoly, the company who runs it (Bon Appetit) knows it does not have to care about the student's opinions or their ability to pay for the expensive meals. The meal plan is $2,800 a semester for a certain number of swipes per week. However, they force you to pay for more swipes than you can practically use because of all of the rules they enforce at the dining halls. No double swiping others in, no swiping more than 3 times a day here, once a day here, once a week here, only after 6 here, and so on. Because of this, you end up wasting swipes every week, causing the practical cost of every meal to be around $16 for every student.
In addition, Bon Appetit does not provide $16 a meal quality food to students. They claim to be ultra "sustainable" about all of their food, but they are a penny pinching business just like any restaurant. They switched to Tyson chicken, which is notorious for animal cruelty. Also, most of the time they intentionally do not restock things such as the salad and sandwich bar, the juices, or the soups, so that they do not have to pay for the extra food. It is very often that a student will waste a swipe going into a dining hall and then find that there is nothing to eat. Bon Appetit knows they have a certain number of students every year guaranteed by contract with the school, so they do not have to worry about retention or return customers.
