WHY IS THIS SCHOOL AWESOME?
Yale is elite even among the Ivy League. With a tremendous amount of resources, personal attention for the students, and gothic architecture, students are able to do extraordinary things. Two hours outside of New York City by train, Yale students take full advantage of what is around them.
FAVORITE SPOT ON CAMPUS?
Beinecke Library - the walls are made with thin marble that glows in the sunlight.
5 WORDS TO DESCRIBE CAMPUS?
SPRAWLING, GOTHIC, ARTISTIC, CASTLE ESQUE, HISTORIC
THE "TYPICAL STUDENT" IS...
Students at Yale are smart, driven, curious, and want to change the world.
Applying to Yale as an international student is exactly the same as applying as an American student. Difficult but not impossible!
SPECIAL PROGRAMS/OFFERINGS APPLICANTS SHOULD CONSIDER?
Yale has deans that live in each of the residential colleges. Each of these people will put on events ranging from famous speakers having tea with students to Chipotle study breaks.
TIPS FOR THE APPLICATION PROCESS?
13% of the students Yale enrolls are legacies, so they definitely count that in their admissions process. They only recommend one extra letter of recommendation if you’ve done scientific research. International students account for 15% of all admits, coming from 118 other countries.
Yale actually moved several times before settling in New Haven. Also Yale students/grads are called “Elis” after the man who gave the money to start the school (not me)!
