What impressed you positively?

"Everything...most of all the faculty and admissions staff. you can tell that yale is very concerned with their students. the director of admissions spends much time with the interviewees even though i know that he probably has a lot of other work to do. we were allowed to stay in the waiting area whenever he had some down time. since many of us had different schedules there were students hanging around in their office practically all day. new haven has history and what's all this that i hear about it being dangerous?? at least i didnt get any catcalls or lascivious stares while i was walking back to my hotel. anyway, what what i was saying is that yale is great for students. they listen to you, support you, and give you real opportunities." Report Response

"nothing" Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"nothing" Report Response

What are your general comments?

"the interview at yale seemed to be a lot more in depth than the one other interview that i had. they really want to get to know you and i think that maybe the interview is weighted more heavily at yale than at other schools. BUT they are concerned that you have a chance to honestly represent yourself. so dont worry about giving them the wrong impression and not getting into the school." Report Response
