"The university is perfect if you want a small-school feeling with a plethora of activities, opportunities for research, and clubs. My personal experience has been extremely positive. The faculty push you beyond your supposed limits and encourage you to participate in a lab or labs of your choice. The classes can be difficult, depending on your major, but there are many ways to get help from (free) tutor centers. Be aware of the steep price."

"Case Western Reserve University has a lot of upside given it's assets, personnel and location. As a business student, you will encounter staff with tons of experience. The classes are setup to teach you to engage with others just like you would in the real world. Case like many other institutions is what you make it. Students have much influence over the atmosphere on campus and students have the power to make the campus their own. There is no shortage of opportunities to get involved, help the community and to engage with professionals."

"University is truly loaded with talented, dedicated students that come from all over. Not only does CWRU provide you with phenomenal instructors that are many times practicing research on campus, but the resources made available to you through the city's surroundings, are world-class. CWRU takes immense pride in its community and partnering with businesses nearby. International, graduate, doctorate, and law students bring a level of diversity to campus, in addition to the surrounding Arts and Music colleges."

"The Masters of Nursing program at Case Western Reserve University is a graduate entry program that sets itself apart by being designed for those who have graduated with a bachelors degree in another field. This allows for students to enter into the nursing field without having an undergraduate degree in nursing. The program is wonderful as you begin clinical rotations along with classes your first semester and continue to gain more experience as the year progresses. The total length of the program is two years and can allow direct entry into the nurse practitioner program for those who want to continue their education. I would highly recommend this program for those who enjoy medicine, science, changing the way the current healthcare field works, and who enjoy working with people. The professors are wonderful and offer so much life experiences and knowledge that I have enjoyed my time and look forward to my remaining semesters!"

"I attended the Mandel School of Social Work within Case Western Reserve University. The school is a top ten ranked program nationally so I was lucky to have it in my hometown. My course work and clinical training were rigorous but prepared me well for work in my field."

"Case was a challenging but supportive school. It required me to work for good grades, but it was not so competitive that I was nervous about not making it."

"Case Western Reserve University (CWRU) is a wonderful institution with a large selection of graduate programs and a diverse faculty to help you reach your goals. My program is designed specifically to advance its students into the medical field, whether it be through research, an MBA, Dentistry, Medical school or many other avenues. The quality of the research being conducted in the medical sciences is extremely high and with the huge network of hospitals nearby, there are ample opportunities to explore clinical experiences and get involved in outreach within the community. Overall my experience at CWRU has been positive and I would recommend this institution for those wishing to pursue education at the graduate level."

"Case Western Reserve University is an amazing school! The teachers are great. They go out of their way to get to know you and help you succeed in life as well as academics. However, the rigor is intense. That is a good thing though. I feel better prepared for the business world than I would be at any other school."

"I am very fortunate to have attended the Frances Payne Bolton (FPB) School of Nursing at Case Western Reserve University (CWRU). My professors, clinical instructors, and advisors were all very knowledgeable, responsive to criticism, and willing to make positive change. I received the necessary amount of support and guidance to lead me to a successful graduation and I was adequately prepared for a career as a professional nurse. Nursing students begin the nursing curriculum during their very first week at the university and maintain this very focused nursing-based education throughout their four-year experience. The large amount of required clinical hours is something that sets FPB apart from other nursing programs. I believe the sooner students begin hands-on patient care, the more comfortable and competent they become. In addition, each nursing student completes their practicum hours in their last semester of the program. Having completed 336 hours with a preceptor in the Cardiovascular Surgical Intensive Care Unit at the Cleveland Clinic for my practicum, I was fully prepared to begin practicing as a registered nurse, and was thankful to be offered a position on this unit. I owe a lot of my success to my undergraduate education at Case Western Reserve University. The experiences I gained, the people I met, and the network I established allowed me to continue expanding my knowledge and become the best nurse I was capable of becoming. With such a positive experience as an undergraduate, I will be starting my Master of Science in Nursing degree at Case Western Reserve University this coming summer."

"The Physics curriculum at Case Western Reserve University is highly rigorous and places an emphasis on mathematical proficiency and theoretical extrapolation in addition to experimental methods. Its comprehensiveness and dearth of research opportunities presents students with a competitive environment where they quickly assume responsibilities fitting for a path to either industrial research, or academia. It should be noted that as a private research institution, Case's physics department is more inclined to prepare students for a life of research, especially for those interested in the physics of materials and condensed matter, but the opportunities for assistant teaching, grading, and tutoring are numerous enough that those interested in physics pedagogy need not fret. Classes demand a significant amount of time, and are firmly grounded in mathematics. The structure of the curriculum in the Physics department is wisely organized such that useful mathematics classes are taken as corequisites alongside core physics courses, reinforcing concepts that are applicable to upperclass courses, including General Relativity, Particle Physics, and Cosmology. There is also a wealth of graduate-level courses available to undergraduates to take, allowing them to prepare for the Physics GRE and graduate school even faster. While rigorous and often stressful, the physics curriculum at Case Western demands and shapes mastery out of its students."

"The Case Western Reserve School of Medicine, provides a world class education. There are faculty members giving lectures that discovered many transporters, acid base balances and pathways. The medical physiology program provides a solid foundation for students who are looking to change their career, and pursue medical education. Being satisfied with the quality of education at Case there are some considerations and negative points that also should be noted. The tuition is very expensive and unfortunately the timing of classes will not allow you to take many fellowship classes that are tuition free. The second point is safety, the university is genuinely trying to make the area safe, they have police patrols, app alerts and many more innovations but still there is more room for improvement."

"CWRU is a great place to immerse yourself in as many or as little things as you want to get involved in. Outside of this school being at the top of the list for Ohio schools, the school has plenty of leadership programs, Greek life organizations, successful division III athletics, and much more. The university does a lot for its students and helps them progress to eventually finding the next school to go to for further education or your future job."
