I am from Cleveland, and would have to agree that most Case students dont live downtown. But that is because the area between Case and Downtown is, lets say, less desireable. If you are planning on finding a place in downtown Cleveland, be careful where you look. The city is trying very hard to develop some areas that are, at the least, unsafe. Id say you need to stick with the gateway area, warehouse district, E.4th, or right by the Cleveland State Campus (anything from E.40 to University Circle is shady). Otherwise, you should not live downtown. There are plenty of places available east of the city (university circle, shaker heights, cleveland heights) that are a short drive or even a walk to Case. Personally, I am (and have always been) a westsider. I prefer places like Lakewood, Ohio City, Tremont and points west of the city. You will find that there is a strange competition between those from the east side of the city, and the west side of the city. I find it quite amusing. Anyway, good luck with your scholarships and I hope to see you there in the fall.
