    You want to be able to stand out in a positive way among applicants in your pool, and the best way to do that is to adopt a memorable tone in your essays. Also be sure that Yale is a good fit for you--it may not be the case!

    If you are accepted, make sure it's the school and not just the name that you love (that goes for any school). Also, go to Bulldog Days if you can. I felt that Yale was the right fit for me when I visited, which is why I'm here now. If you decide to enroll, sign up for a pre-orientation program; it's a great way to start the semester with a group of friends and makes the transition so much easier while also giving you connections to upperclassmen. FOOT (Freshman Outdoor Orientation Trips) was one of my favorite Yale experiences!
