I had completed my graduation from Case western university in Biomedical engineering and being highly satisfied with the curriculum and faculty at the university, I planned to pursue my MS and Ph.D. from the same university. An application fee of $50 along with Online Application was submitted by me. I had chosen this course and university as it gave me an opportunity for upward mobility, leadership, and higher pay opportunities, with increased knowledge.
The curriculum provided breadth in biomedical engineering and biomedical sciences with depth in an engineering specialty. It helped me to develop the ability to work independently on biomedical research. Its flexible online degree program helped me to create a balance between theoretical knowledge and organizational challenges.
It was best for my particular course. I had looked at other colleges and their biomedical engineering classes but they weren't as exciting or interesting. Also, the campus of Case is so beautiful. It is very green and they care about the environment.
I really like the course curriculum. As mentioned before It was the reason I chose this college. Most of the professors teaching the classes are good. Some aren't good. I really struggle to understand what they're saying.
This university is surrounded by three great hospitals that provided good research and internship opportunities. They also provided me with a merit scholarship. For these reasons, I decided to attend CWRU.
The curriculum was challenging and time-consuming but covered topics in depth. Some courses were unnecessarily challenging and went into more detail than was necessary. Because of this, students are often overworked.
I love how CWRU offers a wonderful STEM education with plenty of opportunities for pre-health students. Being right next to the Cleveland Clinic and University Hospitals is a huge benefit, and having the opportunity to perform undergraduate research was something I couldn't turn down.
I think the curriculum at CWRU is challenging but rewarding. I felt very prepared by the time I had to take my MCAT and did rather well as a result. I feel like the professors are very knowledgeable and good at instructing in their field of interest.
