Yale University Reviews
Yale is a highly diverse university with exceptionally friendly and helpful faculty, staff, and students. The food is beyond exceptional, taking sustainability, food waste, health, and nutrition in mind when it comes to every dish. I'm always learning new things each time I step foot on campus. I can't say enough about this place!
I applied to Yale on a whim, mainly to please my parents. Both of them were graduates of prestigious universities: my Dad was a Columbia alum, and my Mom was a University of Chicago alumna. I got wait listed, which was WAY more than I would have expected to have gotten, based on the fact that I wasn't an excellent student in high school, and it took me all four years and extensive tutoring to get a passing grade in AP Mathematics, and a passing grade on the NYS Regents exam in Math also. However, I was ultimately rejected (NO SURPRISE) but, I actually spent quite a bit of time at Yale visiting during my time at Hampshire College, and I have to say, I think I would have LOVED being a Bulldog. It's an amazing institution, and since I was a theater student, ostensibly I could have gone to Yale Drama for grad school, and probably should have. This was the ONLY Ivy I applied to, and I truly think it's the most artistically inclined of the Ivies.
