Hi. I'm considering going to Case next year (it's actually my most likely choice, though I haven't had the heart to throw out Boston U altogether yet) and the most significant barrier preventing me from making a decisive decision is my lack of confidence Case's Humanities' depts, especially political science and history, my prospective majors at the moment.
Now, so far, from visiting the campus, I've liked what I've seen, especially the fact that I'd be able to do research, or at least independent research, pretty early in polisci, maybe even freshman year.
Firsthand experience has given my little reason for these doubts I have. However, I want to be sure. Case obviously is far better known for engineering, medicine, and so on, than for it's quality in the humanities and social sciences.
I'm pretty convinced that Case overall is academically superior to BU, but i'd really like to know if Case really has excellent polisci and history depts, or humanities in general. Does Case match Boston U in these areas? And would I be able to (assuming I do well, of course) get into a top university for grad school in the aforementioned fields ( Yale, Princeton, Chicago, etc)?
