What impressed you positively?

"The facilities are amazing. The new labs and everything are the nicest I have seen. It is Yale, so pretty much everyone is well-known in their field. The students seem really happy, the administration is really responsive to students. I like the level of interaction with the rest of the school- other grad programs and undergrad as well.

What are your general comments?

"An amazing day. It is an absolutely incredible place. I like Cornell (my undergrad school) but Yale is really like another world. The facilities, faculty, and students are top class. I like that they encourage you to do things other then research with your summers, a lot of students go abroad. I was a little surprised that a high number- over 25% go into research or academic medicine. Seems high. The thesis isn't so bad- only aobut 40% do basic science research for it, the rest do something more interesting. Understand the Yale System though, and have an answer for why you want ot be there. They pick and choose, and I got the impression that the response to this question was a big factor." Report Response
