What impressed you negatively?

"TERRIBLY DISORGANIZED! The administrator is quite possibly the most scatterbrained, ditzy person I've ever met. Also, don't expect anyone to escort you between interviews. They hand you a map and a schedule, and you're on your own!" Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"There is completely no structure in the Yale system, so if you need that, don't come here." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"I was absolutely shocked by how awful the organization was for the interview days. If you like to plan ahead, or know where you're supposed to be and when, you won't fit in here. The lack of organization in the Yale system holds true for the entire MSTP program. It's a miracle anything ever gets done! The tour was completely useless; all we saw was the library, no hospital, no dorm. The only redeeming factors here were the students. They were really great and very happy!" Report Response
