    I know it doesn't seem very helpful when people say they're very laid back and casual interviews, but my interviews were very laid back and casual. They're both typically at the end of the day (1 faculty, 1 student) and shouldn't really require any special preparation. Just be a pleasant person and know yourself well. And if you find time, check out the area around the school! I love love loved it.

    I have never been to Cleveland before and I don't know anyone that lives in/near Cleveland. Its a part of the country that I have heard nothing about. I am from the east-coast tri-state area and I am trying to put together a picture of what to expect from my visit to Cleveland. Can anyone think of a location on the east-coast that resembles Cleveland in terms of the culture, people, environment, life-style , etc?

    Thanks! :)

    Reminded me of Pittsburgh. My student tour guide said it felt very similar to Baltimore to her, where she did undergrad.

    I am also familiar with Baltimore and interviewed at the college program at Case and I totally agree that Cleveland has a similar feel. Some areas are a bit iffy but there's really nice and fun pockets all around the city

    Don't they release decisions on the 15th of every month?

    Hi all, for anyone waitlisted or who has previously been waitlisted, do you recommend writing to the committee to provide updates? How much does his realistically impact movement on the waitlist?

    From what I've been told by classmates and admissions is that they do care about hearing from waitlisted applicants. So feel free to let them know how much, and why, you like Case. I know of one friend in particular that frequently communicated with the admissions office (I'm not saying this is necessarily the right thing to do -- I personally wouldn't write, just to write something), and was ultimately accepted months later. The office is pretty responsive to students, so definitely let them know if you have updates, etc.

    There is no place like Cleveland- combination industrial, New England, wealthy suburbia and inner city. Great mix and don't knock it til you try it.

    Thank you! :D

    Unfortunately, I realized that I didn't have enough funds to travel to Case because I spent way too much $$ on other interview trips :/ Therefore, I had to withdraw my application. I hope someone else got to take my spot and enjoy the beautiful city of Cleveland. :)

    Really surprised December applicants didn't hear today. I interviewed in early of December and was told I would hear back within a month. Oh well haha

    With the holidays and everything, they're probably taking a bit longer to get back to December/January applicants. I hope you hear soon!
