Why Yale? “At Yale, I know that I will receive a world-class education, and I know that I will become a well-rounded student in the process. In addition, more than any other school I visited, Yale made me feel at home. The positive, upbeat, welcoming attitudes of the students are really what made the decision for me in the end.”
