What impressed you positively?

"Where to begin? Yale has an amazing undergraduate campus, "Old Yale". The med school is very nice, brand new anatomy lab w/ computers. Awesome set of 1st year students - there is a strong, palpable sense of fellowship among the students, and the Yale System fosters this amazing non-competitive environment. Also, the admissions staff is very pleasant and helpful." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Although interviews are supposed to last an hour, both mine lasted about 45 min because we started a bit late. Great experience throughout the day. I stayed with a student the night before and after - got to go to this cool dinner on the 9th floor on Sunday. Great students. Interviews were also good as a whole - very casual, conversational. New Haven is nice, didn't seem dangerous at all, and I walked around in the early evening some." Report Response
