What impressed you positively?

"Case is an awesome school in a not so awesome city. They have state of the art simlabs where each student gets their own chair. Once you work in the clinic, you get your own chair there too. You are hooked up with an upperclassman and inherit their patient load. They have a great program called Healthy Smiles in which they go out to area schools and give free exams and sealants to 2nd and 6th graders. The students seem very happy." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"The new curriculum is still a little foggy in everyone's eyes. It has some kinks that need to be worked out. Overall, it seems like a very exciting hybrid between problem based learning and lecture. The city of Cleveland can a little scary if you venture ouside of University Circle." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"Nothing. It is all fairly straight forward and relaxed." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"You should arrive about half an hour early for the 8:45am arrival time. There are 3 other applicants there with you. We chatted and waited until ~9am. Either an admissions officer or faculty member calls your name and takes you to their office. You talk with that person for about an hour and then go back to the admissions room to wait. Another faculty or admissions officer will come and get you after that and you talk to that person for another hour. Once all 4 of you are done, thre financial aid lady comes in and tells you about how much debt you're about to get in. Then, 2 students give a tour and eat lunch with you. They gave us each a 7 dollar voucher for the medical dining area. It was rather tasty. After that, they set you free. It'll be done at about 1pm. Both of my interviews were laid back. The faculty interviewer hardly asked any questions. We just talked. The admissions officer had a far more structured interview with the classic questions. " Report Response
