    Yale's plethora of books, resources, and cafe's is what attracts students and staff the world wide to study and teach in this revered university. Nestled in the heart of New Haven, Connecticut, Yale brings with its prestige an old time charm and a medieval feel, as most of the buildings are reminiscent of castle fortresses. There is certainly something for everyone to be found within these hallowed halls and wrought iron gates.

    Yale is a great place for an academic challenge and usually great socially, but it can be isolating for students from lower-income families due to the large number of extremely wealthy, boarding school/magnet school kids. The residential college system gives you a group of people to associate with, but is basically luck of the draw, and because the dorms are organized by entryway, there are few people on one floor, which keeps groups fairly small and close-knit. STEM majors are often discouraged due to harder courses and a lack of well-taught intro classes, especially in mathematics, but tend to bond over the walks to science hill, the never-ending stream of midterms, and the eccentric lecturers.

    Yale is a place to interact with wonderfully varied and interesting people. You get from Yale what you put into it. Yale will open doors and close them, but it's your choice.

    Yale seems like a great school, but are they really are great as they are said to be? Also, is this school actually worth the 50k per year?

    I really didn't want to go to this school at first because I wanted to leave Connecticut. Luckily my mom made me go on a campus tour and I completely fell in love with it. I will definitely apply!
