What are your general comments?

"Despite logicistal issues, Yale is an amazing school. Their system is unique, and certainly one that appears to work. The independence students are given is great. The interviews I had, with a faculty member and a 4th year student, were entirely conversational, especially with the student-interviewer. It's entirely open-file, so they didn't ask much of anything relating to academic qualifications. The school is very much deserving of its reputation among the top med schools in the US."
