    Case, as you probably know, is an EXTREMELY expensive school. A common complaint from students every year is that they hike up prices about 4% every year, which is certainly something to consider when you are considering enrolling. However, they are also extremely generous with their financial aid packages. If you do well in high school and you have great enough financial need, like me, it's likely you won't have to pay much, if anything! Many of my friends and I actually manage to get reimbursements every semester, which can go towards books, food, and campus group fees. Just keep your grades up to keep any scholarships you're given, fill out the FAFSA every year, and you will be fine. For the education and bragging rights you will be receiving, it will likely be worth it.

    There may be a moment of sticker shock, but it is generally remedied by financial aid, and CWRU is a great value.

    Although the sticker price for Case Western is quite high, it is comparable to other top schools. Moreover, Case is very generous with giving out scholarships making it a very affordable option for most of its students. Meanwhile the resources on campus and the research opportunities are up there with schools in the Ivy League. So, don't be intimidated by the cost of attendance, because first of all you most likely will not be paying that much, and secondly the benefits of Case definitely make up for the cost.

    Way too much of our buck goes into professors' research, which some people appreciate. I, however, believe that dorm life, security, the shuttles, parking, and more could be so much better if they would care a wee bit less about the research and more about the students. Alas, that's what you get from a top tier research institution.
