Degree: Chemistry
Graduation Year: 2017

As with most graduate programs, there is a lot of work needed. So far, my experience has been very manageable. I feel the department is very good at also informing students of necessary components to successfully complete the program. I highly recommend the program.

Degree: MBA
Graduation Year: 2014

Case Western's Weatherhead School of Management has created a competitive part-time MBA program. On the positive side, the great majority of instructors in the program are the same instructors for the full-time program--this is meaningful for me. Additionally, the faculty, staff, and administration groups appear to be actively working together to create a program that continually seeks to revamp itself and offer more learning opportunities for its student body. The program received some if its lower scores from me primarily due to the fact the program has recently gone through major changes. Before, I would feel comfortable rating the program any higher, I would need to see how the program's changes will impact the program and the value it adds to its student body.

Most difficult aspect of the program is the saturated hospitals and lack of ability to educate more students due to limited clinical availability

Degree: Health Sciences
Graduation Year: 2013

Pros: Private University with high emphasis on critical thinking and research. Online and web based courses available as well as on campus meetings and seminar type classes. High expectations, even stronger assistance in terms of educational, financial and internship placements. Great location for healthcare opportunities and research networks. Technology is emphasized and evidence based practice is strongly encouraged in nursing scholarship. Cons: Schedule of classes not available early enough for ease of calendar planning at workplace, must take time via vacation for classes. Cost is high, but financial aid is always well provided, as well as counseling and student employment opportunities. Overall, the Frances Payne Bolton School of Nursing at Case Western Reserve University offers an ivy league education for those seeking strong reputational associations. It is blessed with highly respected and well educated faculty, curriculum that boasts a research orientation and critical thought, and also offers different modes of learning for adult learners. One final encouragement to the RNs with associate degrees only: Case has a bridge program that is easily done in a year's time to enter any graduate program. Think BIG!!

Degree: Liberal Studies
Graduation Year: 2013

There is no houses available near the campus. The ones that are cheap are very old and trash. You cant even live there. There are some expensive ones as well but I cant afford them as graduate student which the rate start from $800. Campus is also not safe. I am afraid to work until midnight. There are not many restaurants surround that you can eat! Ohh men everything is horrible!

CWRU is a really great school with excellent professors and research programs. I'm a first year PhD student and while it is keeping me very busy, I'm really enjoying my time!
