sample imageOur talent pipeline is growing! This fall, Case Western Reserve welcomed the largest freshman class in our history. The class admitted this year represents the single largest, most diverse, and most academically qualified in the institution’s history. It includes 74 valedictorians, 42 salutatorians and 65 National Merit Finalists.

Case Western Reserve also moved up to 37th in the nation, as rated by the U.S. News and World Report’s 2013 edition, due in part to the increase in freshman applications.
