    You shoud go CWRU if your major is Bio.
    Case is within #10 for its Bio.
    Good luck :D

    Like what he said.
    CWRU, I think, is ranked higher than Rochester in many of it's programs, especially the Sciences.

    I'm not really sure, but a lot of people I know at Case seem to have been choosing between Case and Rochester...Not sure if maybe they just attract similar types of students.

    I'm not positive about this, but I THOUGHT i remembered hearing something like Rochester has more of a liberal arts type curriculum (or maybe its just more open?). Like i said, i can't my finger on exactly what it was, but i believe the two curriculums are quite different. I would look into this, and decide which one suits you best. They are both strong schools.

    I chose Rochester because of financial aid. I really liked Case, but they did not want to revise my offer after I showed them Rochester's aid. I am going for exactly what the OP is going for.
