"That CANNOT be a good thing.  I haven't heard that.   :-\"

Don't take too much from that.  I don't want to be one of the people one this board who goes around sh1tting on people's balloons.  Just what four or five people have told me.  One of them got her BS and soon MS from Case and decided to go to CSU (nine or so blocks down the street) because of the regional strength of CSU as supposed to the undertones of disrespect for Case Law grads.  So, she may be tainted... who knows.  Just thought I'd give that view.  Any other Clevelanders here either way?

To be totally transparent, let me say that I did NOT get into Case and did get into CSU (where I'll be in the Fall).  But, I'll be working for a few hours a week at Case for the benefits.

From what I've heard from Case students and grads the City does not like Case grads.  So, I would think that Case grads would place better in places other than Cleveland.

To the OP:

Itís good that youíre aware that cities can be dangerous.  Itís much better than those who move to the city oblivious of that fact.  Donít let your thoughts cripple you but DO keep them in your mind.

Combining some of what has been said.  Walk assertively (donít look like a suburbanite afraid of the dark).  Take a self defense class.  However, more than a specific martial art, I would suggest that you take a rape prevention class.  Most Universities, local police departments, or cities have them.  The difference is that in rape/attack situation the idea is not to stay and fight but to quickly stun/delay and GET AWAY.

I think weapons are useless in this type of situation unless youíre willing to actively carry them every time youíre walking.  So if you are willing to have a can of spray in your hand, unsheathed knife, or hip holstered gun donít bother.  You wonít have time to retrieve it while youíre being attacked.

Congrats man! Where is your other acceptance and how do you rate/compare the two for your needs?


I did not accept their offer.  However, they were all great people who wanted to help and were always there to talk to.  I sent them a letter saying as much when I declined.  Did you go to their admitted students day?

"You wouldn't want all the 4.0/180 kids in their own section or one of them would be doomed to be at the bottom of the class."

Oh, that would be delicious.  Put all the 90% plus-ers in the same section and watch them attack each other.  Entire classes full of over-achieving, library-book-page-ripping, pompous-double-question-asking mother freakers!  Mwaaa Haaa Haaa  ;D
