What Students Are Saying

4.57 Average Rating
It's definitely a tough school, but there's also a huge support system here. Tons of advisers, your college dean and freshmen counselors are all totally available to help.

Yale is hard, especially as a STEM major, but I love it. There are so many resources available and so many opportunities because Yale is one of the greatest research universities in the world. It's really easy to find work in a lab or make connections with incredible writers and artists, if you're a humanities person. I couldn't ask for more!

Yale is by no means easy. The conversion rate for one Yale course credit is four credit hours at a state school. Yale's finals are consistently ranked among the most difficult in the nation, and grade inflation is nonexistent.

Classes are difficult, especially if you make the most of your time here. That having been said, great classes in areas that interest you generally feel easier, and those are easy to find.

Academic rigor really depends on the schedule you select at the beginning of the year. Obviously, if you take more difficult courses you'll feel overwhelmed. For your first semester, I recommend you take a relatively easy course schedule, since you're still getting adjusted to the college life, so you have time to try out many different extracurriculars and really get involved with the student body.

The school is harder to get into than it is to maintain. Don't get me wrong it is hard at times but thats mostly a challenge of time management. There is infinite support so you'll never feel lost or alone.
