Degree: Liberal Studies
Graduation Year: 2018

Great school with great preparation, but very expensive.

Degree: Law
Graduation Year: 2017

This program is highly competitive and incredibly difficult. That being said, Case Western School of Law is very well-respected in the legal and local communities. The area of Cleveland itself receives a low rating for safety, however the cost of living is incredibly affordable.

Degree: Nursing
Graduation Year: 2017

The cost is very high of this program and does not offer a huge amount of school-based technology. There are other cheaper programs with more advanced lab equipment for practicing patient care.

Degree: Law
Graduation Year: 2017

Working this program is challenging. The school lists it as a four year program but they do try to help you to make it possible to complete in 3 1/2 years. Cleveland is a nice area, I have certainly lived in worse. But I am a country girl at heart and so I prefer quiet country living to the hustle and bustle of the city. The Campus is a relatively safe place and the school does a lot to try to stay on top of issues that do arise from time to time. There are always opportunities for networking and learning outside the classroom. The law school in particular hosts many guest lectures that are about an hour long and can give students and faculty an in depth look on a specific aspect of law that they are interested in. (e.g. Family Law and how to treat child victims of abuse, counterintelligence demands of the war on terror, or even something like the problems in I.P. law that stem from a world that is almost entirely virtual now). The Political Science Department is great too; although there is really no graduate cohort in this area. I am one of 2 students pursuing a graduate degree in the department, but i personally feel that gives me a leg up because I have the nearly undivided attention of the faculty that are teaching whatever class I happen to be taking at the moment. Case is a great choice for law and not too shabby for the Political Science Department either.

Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2018

Case Western Reserve's online social work program is very flexible and accommodating to my needs. It is one of the only social work programs I know of that allows me to continue working full time while completing my masters. It's also a very prestigious school and well known nationally. I believe the only con is the cost of attendance and lack of financial aid resources.

Degree: Health Sciences
Graduation Year: 2017

I'm a current student at Case Western's MS in Medical Physiology programs. The goal of the program is to boost students' credentials and help them enter medical school, dental school, or PA school. With regards to that, here are some of the pros and cons of this program. Pros: - Proximity to great sources of volunteering (University Hospital, Cleveland Clinic, Louis Stokes Veteran's Medical Center, and other health related organizations) - Advisors. You are given an academic and career advisor in order to help plan out your goals - Lectures are given by extremely intelligent professors who do want you to succeed and help. - You have access to tons of resources in the form of TAs who served in the year before, a vast library system, and a very strong technology resources. - Timeline to finish the program: you can finish the program anywhere between 2 semesters to 2 years Cons: - The program can be costly - Students can easily be overwhelmed due to the amount of material presented.

Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2011

During my academic journey at Case Western Reserve University I was confronted with the strengths and the challenges of the graduate program. First, the academic rigor of the program inspired students to pursue research opportunities. In addition to the academic rigor Case has superior faculty who are on the cutting edge of research and community engagement. Third, Case offers tremendous internship opportunities. For example, I was given the opportunity to serve for Senator Mary Landrieu of Louisiana as a policy intern on Capital Hill. Overall Case has an amazing graduate program. Although Case has an amazing graduate program, they lack diversity in their Ph.D. program in the Mandel School of Applied Social Sciences. There is decreased enrollment among African American and Latino Ph.D. students. In summary Case has a phenomenal social work graduate program.

Degree: Finance
Graduation Year: 2016

Review for the MSM Finance program at Weatherhead. Academically speaking, this is a solid program. I wish there was more diversity (aka a better mix of domestic and international students, as currently there's over 70% Chinese students and I feel like the program could benefit from having more diversity). However, lately the school has been trying to improve the mix of students. Weatherhead offers good career services and a number of opportunities for professional development. It is the best school in Cleveland, so a number of top firms come to recruit our students, which is helpful and makes you feel like you are getting a good value for the money you are investing in your education. I personally feel like the program is a bit too large (120+ students), which makes it more competitive to find jobs. But overall, I'm very happy with the program.
