    In the past, your chances would be good, as they used to have a program which qualifies at SAT of 1300+. But last year applications were a record high, increasing 13% over the previous year. Case was known for more merit aid than most places, but it does not seem anything is automaticly granted based on SATs now.

    You should apply and see what happens; at many places, applying early helps your chances for a merit offer. In fact, U. of Rochester & Boston U. now state that the application must be in by 12/1 (RD) to be considered for merit aid. I have not heard of such a deadline at CWRU.

    Here is Case's site for scholarhips:

    There is no simple SAT level stated here, but many factors are now used including EC's & class rank.

    Here is the link to the old forum. Last year in some cases, a March admission letter did not offer merit aid, but a subsequent letter did.

    You don't state your major, but another place to consider might be Allegheny College - good programs in sciences & pre-med, and merit aid available.
