Reasons to attend and to not attend Yale University

To Attend

  • “I feel that the residential system and student life is unparalleled. You will not find any other college campus where you’ll feel more welcome and at home. I became family with my college and I’m really grateful for that.”
  • “The brand name of Yale will get you places. Having a @yale.edu email address is huge. My emails are read and responded to much more now that I have that.”
  • “People you meet at Yale are extremely intelligent and have very interesting and cool backgrounds. People here are some of the most genuine people I’ve ever met. There are people here who are unbelievably wealthy and they won’t treat you differently, they’re also very genuine.” [Socioeconomically, 7% of students come from the top 0.1%.]
  • “The liberal arts program. You are really encouraged to take classes outside of your major, which opens up a lot of new horizons. I’m taking a class on the archaeology of East Asia, and it’s nice having a class to go to that isn’t STEM.”

To Not Attend

  • “If you’re not into the whole liberal arts thing. Maybe people just want to focus on their major and get out. If someone knows what they want to do, then maybe this isn’t the place because you’re required to take classes outside of your major.”
  • “If you want to have a fun time and have the stereotypical college experience. Here you really have to balance your workload and fun.”
  • “If you don’t enjoy the city life. Yale is placed in a small city, and most people don’t drive.”
  • “The weather might be a factor if you really don’t like the cold.”
