"i had a GREAT day, yale really impressed me. i even liked new haven. do NOT apply to yale if you don't feel you can thrive in a self-motivated environment, because there are no grades or exams in the first two years. also, do NOT apply here if you don't want to do research, there's a thesis requirement. students seemed really cool and friendly. lots from top-tiered undergrad institutions. the day moved yale up to my top choice."
