Student & Graduate Reviews

Degree: Chemistry
Graduation Year: 2016

I like our program. One of my favorite things about it is that it is small, so there is a lot of one on one with professors and advisors. Everybody gets the attention they need.

I have really loved my time at CWRU so far, almost all of the faculty is very helpful, but for some of my friends which are graduating, they seem to be struggling to find jobs. Not all advisors seem to play as active of a role in this crucial step (for the record, many students are looking to stay in the Cleveland area which is adding to the difficulties).

I am happy to be part of this perfect community..the department provides everything that we need for research. It is a good chance to improve ourselves in our research area.

Degree: Social Sciences
Graduation Year: 2015

The university itself is quite expensive, as is the housing in the area, but I could not have chosen a better program. The faculty are all incredibly talented and I've always been able to approach any of them with a question or a concern. The level of personal involvement is outstanding. One of the wonderful things about this program is we are highly encouraged to collaborate with the other students, faculty, and visiting scholars, which helps ensure that we fully understand all the elements that go into research and that we come out of the program knowing how to make a strong study.

The MSA (Master of Science in Anesthesia) program is a rigorous 2 year program that includes didactic learning as well as hands on learning (clinicals). Cons: The Houston program is fairly new, so there is still much that needs to be improved on, such as organization. Often, we do not know that we have a class until a few days before. Pros: Case Western students get operating room experience around their 4th week in the program, which is much earlier than the other AA programs in the USA.

Degree: Nursing
Graduation Year: 2014

A few of the high points of my educational experience at Case Western's Frances Payne Bolton School of Nursing Graduate program are that those graduates include several past and present leaders in nursing practice and theory; an extensive advisory network from faculty to past students, and increased critical thinking skills. I have broadened my horizons with my studies that will never diminish. The cost is high but the financial aid matches in terms of scholarships, grants and loans. The online programs do justice to study, and intensive classes make mincemeat of excuses such as work conflicts: one need only commit a few weeks yearly. The cons include a setting that is not as safe at times, in terms of crime; but the police are vigilant. If you like a diverse study group, with high emphasis on tech and knowledge, theory and commitment to nursing excellence, in an urban yet cultural setting with Severance hall and the museums as a backdrop, this is the place for you!

Degree: MBA
Graduation Year: 2014

The Weatherhead Part-Time MBA program offers a lot of flexibility for busy full-time employee. The course selection made available to the part-time MBA student population offers some flexibility for choosing an area of concentration/major. Professors appear to be very willing to work with part-time students and their busy outside professional lives. Finally, Weatherhead makes great effort to make the latest technologies available to the student population. If there is a con it would be that certain courses are not always offered during hours convenient for the part-time student population. While I have found many courses to satisfy my acamedice requirements, scheduling courses for my ideal major (Finance) was next to impossible.
