I'm looking for information that might give me a sense of what it would actually be like to be at Case Western. Students: are students very social/friendly, do they try to support one another, what kinds of attitudes and interests tend to prevail? Professors: are they accessible, have they given you good ideas and and helped you make connections regarding your career, are they engaging? And what about the staff, like people in career services - have students found these people helpful? I ask these questions because I would like to have a law school experience that I feel more connected to and stimulated by than I did attending my big public UG school. Any insight would be greatly appreciated.
In my opinion:
1. Other students - it's law school - there will be the cocky and/or socially awkward people. But, I find most people to be lovely, friendly and supportive. My friends are always willing to help me in a bind - both in and out of school. I cant' say that i have the same interests as a lot of my friends in law school, but, it honestly doesn't matter, I love hanging out with them anyway.
2. Professors - again, good and bad. Most professors are accessible though. If you e-mail them, you'll get a response within a day or so. They can't always help get you a job, but, I actually did get my job through a professor, so, sometimes they can. I'd say most of the teachers are very good, with only a few bad apples.
3. Staff - they are kind of a joke. Literally. We have a joke about almost every member of staff. If you come here you will soon start to understand "*Do Not Reply **Do Not Reply **Do Not Reply **Do Not Reply **Do Not Reply **Do Not Reply *" and RuffEgg.
