Yale University Reviews
Yale overall is the best place to spend your undergraduate years. The academics are amazing and allow you to expand your mind in ways never before, if you let yourself. The city of New Haven is honestly a great place to spend college because of its urban environment while giving a small town feel. Yale really tries to make sure it feels like home to its students and I feel that it succeeds.
Yale University certainly lives up to its prestigious reputation. There are so many undergraduate opportunities and experiences, as well as a diverse student body and faculty, and that gives Yale a unique character. It is amazing to meet many of the world's leading professionals and academics, and it is an honor to learn from them--and even work with them. Most of all, Yale is a collaborative environment where the students support each other, rather than compete with each other.
Yale has been very accommodating to online learning. The professors interact individually with the students, and that allows for every student to have his/her needs met, given their specific individual circumstances.
The student body at Yale is multifaceted, diverse, and extremely talented. Living, learning, and working among students from all over the world is eye-opening and broadening, even beyond the incredible education provided by the knowledgeable and accomplished faculty.
Learning online is a mixed bag. Some professors were very accommodating and understanding, but others had no idea how to use Zoom. Most professors understood that learning during a pandemic, online, was less than ideal. Successful student organizing for Universal Pass/Fail meant most of the grade pressure was taken off for this semester.
Lives up to its name. The professors actively try to help you and serve as resources. The student life is enriching.
I loved the campus. You can feel the history through the architechture. However, New Haven is not the most inviting town so stay on campus. There is so much happening on campus as well, its a terrific environment.
haven't even started there yet but i'm so excited to. admissions process is great and they do a lot to get you connected to other incoming freshmen
I went on a college tour at Yale University and absolutely loved it. The buildings were nice and the people there were so friendl It makes e feel a part of thir faily before attedning there already!
Going there helped me fit it, not at all what I expected. The environment isn't rigid, cold, and cutthroat but rather welcoming and passionate. Everyone is driven to work together toward what is best.
People who gave New Haven a C+ are literally racist and just scared of black people because of their whitewashed upbringing. How does Columbia have a higher safety rating when one of their students was stabbed to death last month? New Haven is safe, some people are just bigoted.
From the moment I stepped on campus, the students and professors were extremely welcoming and committed to making every student feel at home. The residential colleges allow first years to have a small, tight-knit community that is enriched through social and cultural events. The academics are top notch in every department with accessible and enthusiastic professors that push their students to achieve greatness. The party scene is incredible and open for students to enjoy on the weekends as a way to connect with others. Although people who have never visited New Haven are concerned about safety, Yale does an amazing job of making sure the campus is safe at all hours and works to connect Yale students to the city of New Haven.
I love the sense of community here, being a part of a residential college really gives you somewhere to belong. There are also so many extracurriculars available that its easy to be overwhelmed by the choice! Although Yale has been a mostly positive experience, I would love to see the Student Income Contribution get eliminated, so FGLI students aren't obligated to work in order to have a place at Yale.
There is no place like Yale. The community is supportive and the campus is absolutely gorgeous. New Haven is a perfectly place for anyone that wants a college town experience with a mixture of the big city feel. The campus is huge and there are great eateries all around the campus.
My expectations were high coming in, but they were far exceeded in every way. Life at Yale is incredible in all aspects.
Great college! They say the more options you have the more regrets you'll have, and that has been true of my Yale experience. While I do not regret doing the things I did do, I do wish I had more than 24 hours in a day so I could do even more! There is so much to do in terms of career development, extra-curriculars, and just entertainment in general. There are so many classes to choose from and most of the professors are incredible not just as professors, but as people in general. If I could redo college I would definitely choose Yale again!
Yale University is an amazing school. It is home to a variety of students with diverse backgrounds and interests, and provides its students with all the resources necessary to succeed.
Amazing school with some of the best people I have ever met. Professors (for the most part) genuinely care about you and how well you know the material. Very easy to set up meetings/lunches with them. Many different on campus events and summer opportunities that can be found. It can be a bit difficult to navigate Yale's website since there are so many and it's not that organized but as long as you google, you can find internships, research labs, etc. Decent food and amazing dining hall staff members. The new residential colleges have amazing dorms (really big) and facilities (being a Paulimur). Pretty good support in terms of career help. There are daily drop-in hour times that offer resume/cover letter help. Lots of different clubs available although most of them have an application process which in my opinion can be slightly annoying.
I love Yale University because it is wonderful, unique, supportive place filled with brilliant, interesting and fun people. In my opinion, other schools can't offer the sense of community that the residential college system fosters, or simply support their students with as much funding, resources and advice.

Yale is an amazing university that has some of the best academics, values, and curriculum, but lacks in providing a good typical college experience.
