Case Western Reserve University Reviews
Review Case Western Reserve University
What I love most about Case is the general attitude around failure. There hasn't been a single class I've been in during my first three years at the university where messing up hasn't been celebrated as unanimously as succeeding has. What I've noticed, is that professors here especially are really concerned with the way you learn from your mistakes. Getting something right the first time is always what we'll hope for ourselves, but the professors here at CWRU understand that we're in a highly competitive environment. Not everyone is going to come in first place. So they take the time to foster an environment where failure is seen as the first step to success. And it's made me a better, more competitive, more curious, and well rounded student. I'll always be grateful to CWRU for helping me learn as an adult that it doesn't matter how many times you fail as long as you figure out why it happened and allow yourself to move forward.
Almost everyone does something that goes towards their degree for the school! There are countless study abroad programs all over the world, and even more internship prospects, volunteer opportunities, and job openings from amazing employers. Networking is really strong between alumni and students, allowing better connectivity with students and possible career opportunities. The career center workers are always striving to help students in need, and seem successful in find students' needs. This is some of many examples of career prospects.
Case Western is a near-perfect mix of a small and big school. There are always new people to meet, but I can't walk across campus without seeing at least a few people I know. School spirit isn't Case Western's strong suit, but the school's prestige makes up for it. I haven't met many people who would say Case Western is their top choice, but it's definitely a great place to be!
