  • I am researching this school and have visited the campus

    Yale is a university in which everyone is smart enough that no one has to show off how smart they are. The campus is beautiful and old, and the buildings and people that I met while visiting were all open and friendly. A great place for research and for launching a life.

    Yale is a very diverse school that offers tons of opportunities to its students. The resources are endless and the people are kind. It's big enough to have a wide range of backgrounds and interests, but still small enough to have close and intimate friendships.

  • I am accepted here and planning to attend soon

    While I visited, everyone on campus was extremely kind and welcoming. There was this genuine atmosphere of community, and I knew that it was right for me. I feel like it's very easy to fall through the cracks in high school, but at Yale it seemed as if that just didn't happen.

    Despite being highly selective, Yale nurtures an extremely diverse student body. The range of interests and backgrounds creates a thriving environment both inside and outside the classroom; though the academics are great, the most rewarding part of attending Yale is having your horizons expanded by people who think so differently from yourself.

    Yale University has a great academic environment, and a very friendly student body. In my experience, professors have been very available and eager to engage with their students: they want you to understand the material and do well on the course. Although it certainly is a challenge, studying at Yale is very rewarding and you get to make connections that last for life.

  • I am researching this school and have visited the campus

    Truly came across as an amazing place during the college tour. Everyone was both incredibly intelligent and fairly modest at the same time--one of those situations where it's easy to surmise without being told directly. Best way to sum up the visit is with the motto Lux et Veritas: Truth and Light.

    Yale has been my dream school since I was a little girl. At first I wanted to go for it's amazing english department, but my gears have switched more towards psychology and I still plan on fighting my way to acceptance.

    Yale has a beautiful campus. A place nearby called Insomnia delivers cookies until 4 am. There are also many great all you can eat sushi buffets.
