"The enthusiasm the students had for the curriculum and for the other students (the words "spark" and "electricity" came up when talking about classmates). Also, the Yale System is really fascinating and exciting." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"New Haven. But then again, I went expecting much, much worse. My interviewer admitted to having been mugged and robbed (more than once), but said that the University prioritized student safety." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Living in Boston, I was really concerned about New Haven, namely the safety and the cultural opportunities. I got to Yale a day early and explored, which I highly recommend doing. Spending a day wandering around the city and talking to folks was highly instructive. I also found that there are a lot of cultural opportunities, even in such a small town. Plus, both the medical and the regular campus at Yale take numerous safety measures. The interview day was instructive. We had a general introduction, 2 interviews (mine were a faculty and a student), and then a luncheon and tour. I definitely got the most out of talking to the students who were honest in their appraisal of the Yale System (ie: it's great for them, but doesn't work for everybody). I left thinking that Yale is my top choice." Report Response
