For anyone invited for the merit/dean's aid, do you mind giving an idea of your stats (PM or here)? I was hoping for an invite with a LM of 77, I'm wondering if I wasn't competitive enough

Just heard back from the Admissions office and they don't offer any more merit scholarship invitations if your offer letter doesn't already extend one. Kinda knew this to be the case, but still slightly bummed to hear it explicitly.

Any LM < 70 ppl get IIs here? What do you think made your app stand out
Don't get so hung up on stats. Schools look for a mix of stats, experiences, diversity, etc. Christian Essman, Director of Admissions, even mentioned it on his podcast or one of Dr Gray's -- schools usually only post the mean or median, and maybe a 25-75% range, but not the entire range. Case is good enough to show the full range. Here's from Case's own website about their statistics (Class Profiles | School of Medicine | School of Medicine | Case Western Reserve University) for the 2017-2018 class. Case admitted people with sub 3.0 GPA's and just above 500 MCAT's (so their LM's would be low). Probably not a ton but they're there. It's pretty much a mystery what makes one person stand out at one school and get rejected outright at another.

Metrics and Demographics
  • Average MCAT: 516.4 (94th percentile), Range: 503 - 526
  • Average Cumulative GPA: 3.75, Range: 2.91 - 4.00
  • Average Science GPA: 3.71, Range: 2.85 - 4.00
  • 55% Female
  • Average Age 24, Age Range: 19 - 37
Just do the best you can with your stats, and be true with who you are. The right match will happen eventually.

Yes. LM <65 here, II and A.
  • Application was in line with their mission (lots of research experience)
  • Had a unique EC that I continued for >4 years as a result of personal interest—completely unrelated to medicine. involved something tech-related.
  • Massive upward trend + greatly improved post bacc. GPA, solid MCAT on first attempt.
  • URM—included for full transparency. However, this alone would not have made my application stand out from the thousands that this school receives.

When does Case tend to send post interview notifications?

Accepted!!!! Interviewed 11/22
OOS, Stats in signature
Didn't expect this at all because my interview day wasn't the greatest, and I felt that I didn't articulate Why Case the best, but I think sending a thank you to the admissions office and my interviewers really drove home the point that I wanted to attend - they were incredibly responsive. Not considered for merit aid, so Case might be a little ~expensive~ haha

Does anyone know if Cleveland is a fun city to live in? I'm looking for a big city vibe that has tons of things to do on the weekends (clubs, bars, events, etc.) and is lgbtq friendly

Alternate list, interviewed 12/9 (I’m guessing that means I have no chance for a merit scholarship even if I do get in, so probably won’t be going to case haha)

WL. A little sad because the curriculum resonated with me strongly but moving forward with no regrets. Happy for the opportunity and grateful for what I have learned during this process!

Anyone have statistics on WL movement here? Asking for a friend...
I know we’re a data-driven group but anecdotal evidence that I’ve heard suggests that a large chunk of the current M1s are from the waitlist - I wouldn’t lose hope!
