What Students Are Saying

3.99 Average Rating
Case Western is a school that is very focused on academics and research. It is quite academically rigorous, but also very rewarding. Using "Think Beyond the Possible," as their motto, Case Western drives their students to achieve their goals, even when in doubt.
Elanda from Fairview Park, OH
Case Western is a fantastic science and engineering school. It's location in Cleveland seems unappealing, but the campus has a way of setting itself apart from its surroundings. Case gives its students great opportunities for success.
