I am looking for maybe a nice, clean studio apartment to live in for the year. I do have a car, so living within driving distance versus walking is fine. I wanted to know where you thought the best apartments for a reasonable price. I don't mind driving 20 minutes or so. Thanks!

Hey I'm also attending Case in the fall. As far as housing is concerned I heard that Shaker Heights is really nice and about a 10 minute drive from the school. Most people live in University Height, which I think is in walking distance to the school. Also, Beachwood is a really nice area, within driving distance, and has really nice apartments which are more expensive.

Thanks!! I'll try not to die of boredom. I'm sure my law books will keep me busy must of the time though. . .

Thanks everyone for your input. I decided to attend Case because of the money, and their health law program. The next three years of my life will be spent in Cleveland, and to think I just returned home from undergrad.

well i have friends who went to school in the area (the institute of art and case) and some of them had problems with the police on campus b/c they're constantly afraid of folks from East Cleveland coming thru and wrecking the place. its not that different from other city campuses i've visited though. i guess howard would be different b/c its in the hood, and the school is black too. so you can't really do the whole racial profiling, pull over every black man you see type of thing.
Ah...I see. Maybe it will help that I'm female,lol we'll see though

awww. Cleveland's not that bad. I live in the DC area now, so you can definitely take that into account, but its not crappy. there are things to do and see and cool people esp. if you get to know the neighborhoods. little italy is nice and nearby. i lived on the east side and there are places to hang out. i think anyone of them would be a good choice. i heard that case is not necessarily a good place for black men. but if you talked to black students and they seemed happy, then I would take that into strong consideration. the only thing about i know for sure is that the school is mostly tech nerds, so you might have to leave campus to find parties and stuff.
Hmmm. . . Is Case not good for black men or blacks in general, and how so? I admit I was exaggerating a bit about Cleveland (I'm partial to D.C.). As far as the students, they seemed happier about the financial aid and the prospects after graduation than about their current situation . ..

Thanks everyone for your input. I've been away from my computer working and visiting Case. I've been to both Catholic and Howard before. Visiting Case put things into perspective. The city is crappy, but the school has a lot to offer. I spoke to Howard's financial aid and basically I have no chance of getting as much as Case is offering. Prospects after graduation are good at both places so it's still a toss up. . .

I plan on studying international law. I was almost completely conviced on going to Howard until I received an email from Case Western offering a $19,000 scholarship. This tempts me because they have a really strong international law program.

O, I never received a message saying I was complete. I filled out my application online on January 6th. However they never requested my lsac info, so I emailed them on the 27th. I called them last week and was told that I would receive a decision before it was time for me to make a decision.
