whats the campus like?whats cleveland like?
As a 3L, I can tell you that Case is not worth its tuition. Only go here if you get a full ride. The law school building is way too small. I came here because of the surrounding museums, but you don't have any time to actually enjoy them. Don't make a wrong turn off campus--you will end up in one of the most dangerous neighborhoods in the country--East Cleveland. We are always getting "security alerts" that someone was assaulted, someone was mugged. As to the law school itself: some of the faculty is really cool, but most don't know how to treat students. Basically, I don't like how I was treated at this school. The registrar's office plays favorites and gives out wrong information, the administration is the same. They are playing guinea pigs with the 1Ls and 2Ls by forcing this new legal research program on them--there are nonstop problems with that. Law school is not supposed to be a walk in the park, but I can honestly say that my three years at Case were the most unhappy years of my life. Thank god I have a great job coming out of this hell-hole: thanks to my own networking--OCI was pretty worthless for me.

There are some great restaurants, all the major sports, some good theater, and it's cheap as hell. You have the Cleveland Heights area which is more college like, downtown which is underrated and cheap as hell to go out in, and Lakewood, which is on the West side. And, of course, you have Great Lakes Brewery, which rocks like no other (except Victory).
Why, oh why doesn't Ommegang get its due.Also, I think Rogue is a little better than Victory. That said, those three are tops!
