Case Western has been brutal to my GF. She has received no less than two HUGE envelopes from them and a number of emails, all of which get her poor little heart racing. The school is her top choice and she went complete in November, but she is definitely a bubble sitter, so I can understand why they are taking their time. But seriously, they need to rethink sending huge envelopes out to applicants who they aren't necessarily accepting. It can really make for a heinous period of extreme joy followed by intense frustration/anger.
Yeah, Case is horrible. I think my favorite of their funny little jokes was when they mailed me a login and password for their financial aid site, and told me to go to the "admitted students" page. I hadn't received an acceptance letter yet, so I called the admissions office and asked about it. Their response was "Oh, yeah, we send those out to all our applicants. Your application is before the committee, and you'll hear back from us when you hear back." I called back last week to check on my status-I've already heard back from everywhere else that I applied to, and I've even gotten my scholarship packages from schools ranked higher than Case, and that I applied to after I applied to Case. Their response? "We won't be finalizing the class until May. You'll hear back from us then."
Not to mention the fact that they just sent me an email saying that although the admissions deadline has passed, they're still accepting applications to be reviewed on a "case by case" basis.
So, yeah, Case sucks.
