In fact, I would ensure that you work extra hard to sell yourself. Personally, I find that with interviewers that are super-nice, I have a tendency to assume, oh hey, we're all buddies and since we finished on such a happy note, I'm sure the interview went well. Make sure you leave that interview showing them *exactly* why you think you'd be a great fit at Case, and keep repeating that over and over, no matter how many laughs/giggles you guys share."

"The students are so happy! There is time outside of class to be involved in other things. IQ is cool." More from this Member | Report Response

"I absolutely loved this school!! The curriculum is amazing in how it brings together the biology of disease and the social and behavioral contexts of medicine. The research opportunities it offers are essentially endless. Students have the opportunity to do their clinical training at all four of the main Cleveland medical centers (Case University Hospital, Cleveland Clinic, Metrohealth, VA) during their time as medical students. Case offers great opportunities to help provide medical care to underserved people both in Cleveland and throughout the world. Finally, I felt that the students and faculty here are really warm, friendly, and respectful, and that students are more interested in helping each other out than competing with each other. This creates an environment that I would love to be immersed in during medical school." More from this Member | Report Response

"Admissions office was great, there's fantastic clinical experience, people were very friendly, student interviewer gave me a really positive sense of the school. " More from this Member | Report Response

"The curriculum is amazing. I love that there's only 4 hours of class per day, afternoons are free, no class on Thursdays, and the IQ groups. The school's the only medical school in Cleveland, which means the very large and diverse patient population gets treated at Case. If you are into peds, Rainbow is amazing. If you want to see tons of uninsured patients with all sorts of crazy problems, they have MetroHealth. If you want to see the most advanced treatments to diseases that can't be cured anywhere else, Cleveland Clinic is right there. The required research block fits my own interests. Early clinical exposure, integration of public health into curriculum etc. are also positive highlights" More from this Member | Report Response

"Great program with lots of flexibility and self-guided learning. Everyone is very friendly and happy." More from this Member | Report Response

"The school was extremely impressive. The interview day is very well organized, everything seems crisp and well put together. The students I stayed with seemed really happy with the program, and the doctors I talked with seemed very proud to be where they are at. I also liked the IQ groups that Case uses, rather than a solely lecture based teaching style. Finally, the curriculum seems great. Access to amazing hospitals, Cleveland Clinic, anyone?"

"The facilities were IMMACULATELY unreal, like they had been built last year or something. Students seemed laid-back and happy. They seemed content with their decision. Ellen and Christian are suuuuuper nice. I felt so welcome by them. They went out of their way to help me on many different occasions (too embarrassed to mention them) but it warmed me up to the school a lot.

"Case is top school. But they are on the up. They used to compete with CCF, now they have a collaborative relationship. This stands to profit the students. Also they have true pass/fail. The students still match competitively. And heard numerous stories about how case 3/4 years would do rotations at other hospitals and would be lightyears ahead in terms of their clinical preparation. All this is a p/f atmosphere... My interviewr had a lot of passion. She loved her life and job, it was great to see a physician talking about the joy of her life as a physician (it sounds corny, but after all the HMO/health reform talk it is good to know someone who wholly endorese the art and practice of a physician with no if, ands, or buts."

The dean has started a research and thesis requirement (doesn't sound like too much work, seem to be similar to an undergrad thesis) and really recommends international rotations, which was pretty exciting. Overall I like the direction Case is going in. The campus is really nice too." More from this Member | Report Response

"the students were very enthusiastic, the facilities what I saw of them at least were nice (they are really strict about following the privacy laws so we did not tour the hospitals or anatomy labs). The orientation/information sessions were excellent but would have been better before the interview (the session was after mine)" More from this Member | Report Response

"they have a lot of new facilities for the medical school that are really state of the art. the area surrounding the campus is really woodsy and pretty and case is the cultural center of the city. all cultural performances and museums are just outside your door. as a minority applicant, i felt the school was really interested in making me feel welcome. the student national medical association met with us to answer our questions for an hour then one of the students took us to meet the dean of students and the dean of minority affairs. the dean of minority affairs spent a lot of time with us also, giving us an honest perspective of the school, faculty, and students. just the time and consideration they gave us was really wonderful and the school seems like a great place to be for a person of color. also, the deans of admission are two young female physicians so overall the typical white-male dominated image of medicine does not hold at case. they are very very progressive.

The class we sat in on talked about the biology of love, which I though it was a very unique and refreshing topic for a lecture, and the professor seemed very amiable and had an entertaining lecturing style. The Dean of Admissions himself also came to talk to us, which I thought was very flattering and impressive, especially since he was so fascinatingly soft-spoken but appeared very dedicated and driven toward the goals he had for the school."

"The cohesiveness of the students mainly created by the cooperative, as oppose to competitive, atmosphere of the school.

You can also opt for a geriatric patient, and I think they said there was a new third option, but I forget. Oh yeah, and the food in the cafeteria was really good!"

It wasn't a "hard-sell," though, which i've seen at other schools and for some reason makes me wonder if they're really all that happy... Also, the curriculum is really exactly what i want- less lecture time, free afternoons, tons of exciting electives in the first two years, a great 2-year, longitudinal patient contact experience, totally elective fourth year, diverse (both in race, age, and general background) student body, rotations at UH and the clinic, great city for healthcare in general, lots of nih research grant $$... oh, i also reeally liked the other interviewees."

What impressed you negatively?

"The faculty interview seems to have barely read my file as she got the dates for my activities wrong and she didn't know where I was from." More from this Member | Report Response

"This is the first year they're doing two weeks of crash course anatomy with cadavers and then moving to an augmented reality anatomy for the rest of the pre-clinical years. This is super cool, and a lot of money went into it, but I think it is yet to be seen how this will be for students in the long term. Also, Cleveland isn't the best city there is lol." More from this Member | Report Response

"The interview felt a bit stiff because they had a set of questions they had to ask us, so it didn’t feel very conversational" More from this Member | Report Response

"One student who ate lunch with my group was too laid back and cursed left and right. She was also very loud and dominated the conversation. Unfortunately she gave me a negative impression of Case." More from this Member | Report Response

"Encountered a snotty student there. Won't go into the detail, but I thought this student was rather inconsiderate. Unimpressed by her. Also encountered a weird, strange student there. Brazen and unpolished. Just got a weird vibe from him. I am only describing interactions with 2 students (not 200), but I left thinking that the school lets some arrogant folks through the doors unintentionally. I met 2 other students who seemed quite amiable and down to the earth." More from this Member | Report Response

"The group of interviewees seemed kind of competitive, which turned me off." More from this Member | Report Response

"We had a chance to sit in during the medium group class, and the students really didn't seem too enthusiastic. When they had to get up to present something, most of the students weren't very good presenters. However, the professor seemed very helpful." More from this Member | Report Response

"i didnt really connect that well with my first interviewer, he didnt seem to be asking "the right" questions to get to know me" More from this Member | Report Response

"Nothing, really - they spent a lot of time defending Cleveland, which is unnecessary in my opinion but other people may feel differently" More from this Member | Report Response

"My faculty interviewer was not prepared and also didn't seem to know how to interview. I just hope I managed to make a good impression anyway." More from this Member | Report Response

"How limited the aid seemed to be...very expensive." More from this Member | Report Response

"Nothing about the school. But I was very surprised by the fact that I wasn't even asked about the contents on my application. It made me question the importance of interviews." More from this Member | Report Response

"Obnoxious SDN forum (it is tough to actually find information buried in there, but my student host assured me that those people are really few and far between at the school), tactlessness of the first years by eating and drinking all of the food and coffee left out for the interviewees, Cleveland isn't so rockin, large class size, run-down classrooms, I also was not impressed with the student interview (a second year who couldn't answer questions well, we also interviewed in the cafeteria...., I would have preferred to interview with a third or fourth year- someone with hospital rotation experience)" More from this Member | Report Response

"Ok, Cleveland isn't really THAT bad, and I'm an elitist big-city jerk, so honestly, it's not that bad. But I guess it was probably the worst thing about the interview, besides the ridiculous winds. But really, not that bad." More from this Member | Report Response

"I didn't feel like the curriculum would prepare me too well for the boards because only about 2 hours a day is spent in lecture - seems like it is great for helping students think as doctors and try and diagnose problems (which is more important of course than boards), but with how important boards are, I don't feel I'd be as prepared as a I should be" More from this Member | Report Response

"Need for a car, lake weather. Unavailability of online lectures. Anatomy stretches across both pre-clinical years. Early start date might cause complications with current schedule." More from this Member | Report Response

"Cleveland isn't the world's greatest city." More from this Member | Report Response

"Honestly, nothing." More from this Member | Report Response

"Honestly, the facilitators of the IQ groups seemed superfluous. The students really were running the show, and were openly critical of some of the facilitators. Also, I don't know if other schools allow you to tour the anatomy labs, but we were only allowed to "peek" in. Not well ventilated-could smell the fumes in the hallway with the door closed. I will pay attention to the ventilation at other schools to compare. FInancial aid is basically loans with minimal specifics on scholarships. Told us to be frugal, which I found insulting." More from this Member | Report Response

"My student interviewer was kind of rigid." More from this Member | Report Response

"Some of the learning environments are older and my student interviewer was extremely introverted and into research, which was pretty opposite of me... not necessarily Case's fault at all. Also, Cleveland was a bit of a downer, but the school is not really in the thick of Cleveland, so that rocks!" More from this Member | Report Response

"I really don't like Cleveland. And it's very telling that when I asked students if they'd stay in Cleveland for residency, they all said no. The hospital facilities are top-notch, but I think the actual classroom facilities are run-down. Long hallways with lockers on either side, and classrooms with no windows. That could be very depressing, day in and day out. And I think the curriculum is just too much PBL for me. I've had courses like that in undergrad, and I've always found them to be more frustrating than productive. Great for some people, just not for me. " More from this Member | Report Response

"The tuition is quite expensive, and since there aren't many scholarships available, many students graduate with a lot of debt." More from this Member | Report Response

"Cleveland." More from this Member | Report Response

"Cleveland isn't the greatest, but it's not nearly as bad as everyone makes it out to be. Any urban city has its issues. I am really bummed about how flat northern Ohio is. Some of the facilities weren't as nice as I would have liked. I'm not too sure about the delay in learning anatomy, as well as the apparent lack of anatomy focus. Also, not sure how the research requirement will pan out." More from this Member | Report Response

"Nothing really...we had stuff to do during downtime, they served us food, took us on a nice tour, oh look, i'm putting positives in the negatives box." More from this Member | Report Response

"It was a huge pain to get there. Massive amounts of construction. Also, the school is just one large building attached to a teaching hospital. I guess I was expecting a bigger campus, but honestly this was a great school and I have no real complaints." More from this Member | Report Response

"the city is pretty rundown. my first visit to CLE." More from this Member | Report Response

"The city, but then again, i didn't get to see very much of it." More from this Member | Report Response

"Uncertainty of Step 1 because of newly implemented curriculum. My faculty interview was like talking to a wall. I got no feedback, no smile, not even a look down. He just shot questions at me one after another. I even caught him checking his watch once. It made me even more nervous. NOT CONVERSATIONAL AT ALL!! Apparently, though, this was not the norm, but it gave me a negative impression of the school from that point on. Apparently it rains in Cleveland just about as much as it does in Seattle. :( Only a few hospitals nearby (including ''the world renowned Cleveland Clinic''). No student housing (but apparently apartments are really cheap)." More from this Member | Report Response

"Slap-dab tour that lasted only 15 minutes with the guide saying things like, ''like, I don't know what to show you and everything.'' (he did sneak us into the (unimpressive) anatomy lab, however, which is normally off-limits to tours.) Students' virtually uniform feelings that there were kinks and frustrations with the new curriculum (most notably that 1) the first-years were frustrated with the teaching of anatomy (60% prosections), and 2) the second-years had no idea whether they were going to do well on the boards or not since they will be the first class of the new curriculum to take it.) Laptop use is required, so students all chat and facebook during lecture. Cleveland is rigidly class-segregated and provincial, and extremely car-oriented. The really ugly pit of a neighborhood that you see when you drive to Case from the airport." More from this Member | Report Response

"Cleveland is really destitute and it is apparent. All the social ills stemming from this are present. Walking around the city at night is definitely a bad idea." More from this Member | Report Response

"Thought I might get mugged while waiting for the subway to go to the school. The student interview was very hard to read, and she was the one person I met that didn't seem happy there which clashed badly with my exhuberance towards the school. It was also very f'ing cold in Cleveland. We're talking 4 degree wind chill factor." More from this Member | Report Response

"Cleveland is a dive (lake caught on fire in 70's due to heavy pollution). New cirriculum has a lot of kinks, and my student host held reservations about it.

"At first the true P/F. I was wondering, how am I supposed to stand out. But the truth is, the students still stand out, but rather than you v. your colleagues/friends/classmates.

"The entire interview experience was, sad to say, fairly mundane. I had read on sd.net that most interviewees at Case had had a wonderful time there, and I was looking forward to the same experience, but I never got it. Perhaps it was just a fluke, but that day there were only about 8 interviewees, and there was A LOT of dead time, which gave the impression that the interview day was not well-planned. My interviewer showed no evidence that she had looked over my application, and instead asked me a few basic questions and then responded to my answers by answering the questions again herself. She didn't write anything down or showed any interest in representing me before the applications committee. What other little exposure I had to faculty was promising, but in the class we sat in on, many of the students seemed ridiculously bored--perhaps the free laptops are not a good idea, because I saw quite a few students sitting in the back of the lecture hall, playing computer games and completely ignoring the professor. Regarding the curriculum, research is mandatory, which didn't quite agree with me. Finally, the admissions staff told me I would receive a reply by mid-December, but at the time of this writing, it is now January and I haven't heard a thing from them. Case seems to be well-funded, but in the end, I couldn't quite say whether or not that money is going to the right places." More from this Member | Report Response

"My interviewer was ruthless. He must have had a bad day; the secretary described him as "very nice," but instead he needled me incessantly about my shortcomings, dismissed my strengths as irrelevant, only asked questions about weaknesses in my file, and could not tell me anything about Case's med program. I'll be lucky to get waitlisted." More from this Member | Report Response

"Cleveland, while nice around the school, is mostly what you'd expect. I sat in on a class and most of the students were surfing the web on their laptops instead of paying attention to the lecture." More from this Member | Report Response

"Ok, so Cleveland wasn't exactly what I expected, but I still didn't like it. The school is on the edge of the city, not in the city itself. Everyone lives in the giant suburbs called "heights". For me that would be more suburban wasteland, and I'm looking for a change. A car is a must, since there doesn't seem to be much transportation. At least parking is available. More negatives were some requirements the graduate school had. Things like requiring your med school classes to be graded (but I hear you will always get an A or B so it doesn't matter). There's also publishing requirements, which don't exist at some other programs, but you should publish a couple times anyways. You get alot of electives from the medical school there, and that's a big selling point for the med school, but from what I understand the graduate school makes you take all these graduate classes that will kill your electives. I guess this helps keep graduation time reasonable, but I think certain other things could be cut (and they are at other schools) rather than piling more stuff on top of us."

"Unfortunately, I had a very bad student hosting experience. I went in very enthusiastic despite never being in the midwest before. But the students I stayed with didn't help the image of Cleveland and really surprised me about the attitude of students on campus. Thankfully, I think they're exceptions and not the rule."

"cleveland isn't exactly the most happening place. also, our tour guide seemed to be selling the school through lies. for example, he said that case western would be receiving more NIH funds next year so as to be second most in the country. for some reason, i doubt that case western will have more funds than schools like penn, columbia, hopkins, and the like."

"the interview day is supposed to be very laid-back in nature, but i might have preferred a bit more structure. although i didn't know it when i scheduled my interview, i was unable to sit in on classes or see any lecture halls because the first and second years all had exams. The facilities aren't brand-spanking new, but they're fine- case has a great new school-wide library, two fabulous health centers, and the hospital system is really gorgeous. Also, we got lunch from the hospital caf and they gave us $5 coupons to use, but I was worried about going over the limit and had left my purse with the admissions people! Bring extra cash if you plan to chow down..." More from this Member | Report Response

"The location and med school facilities. The part of Cleveland we were in didn't feel very safe, and I kept getting a wierd vibe walking around there.

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"You might get stuck with both of your interviews in the afternoon, like I did. This just added a little stress to my day as I had to eat lunch and go on the tour without having done either of my interviews yet." More from this Member | Report Response

"Just make sure you do your research on Cleveland/Why Pitt" More from this Member | Report Response

"They have a set list of about 11 questions that they have to ask you, so it felt less like a conversation. The interviewer also interjected clarifying/more questions while I was still talking. Made it feel a little less relaxing. Also wish I knew that everything happens in their new HEC building (all classes and small-group activities). The building's all white with almost no other colors. Very modern,"beautiful", and minimalist in a sense, but it felt very sterile with not much personality. I felt homesick for whate
