yale is the best place on earth. i felt at home within a few weeks and have yet to meet one boring or unlikeable person. the residential college system is probably the highlight of the community.
Elizabeth from Marietta, GA
Yale is Harvard WITHOUT the snobbery, competition, and constant atmosphere of I need to do better than everyone else. The opportunities and resources are virtually unlimited and frankly quite overwhelming. The most important asset of Yale is the people, the students and the professors, who are exactly the type of people you would want to learn with and learn from.
