What Students Are Saying

3.99 Average Rating
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.
Beautiful campus, awesome campus life, and a phenomenal education. If you have the merit for scholarships and can handle the Great Lakes winter, this is a great school to attend!
Maria from Cleveland, OH
CWRU may be the most underrated university. It's got Ivy League quality academics, a beautiful campus, great athletic teams, and a plethora of clubs and organizations. There's something for everyone.
