What impressed you positively?

"The students are tremendously enthusiastic. Their zeal for Yale is infectious. Also, Yale's program is very self-directed, so the students seem to engage a full array of diverse interests. This all apparently comes at no cost to their educational experience given that their match list is ridiculous (ask for, they'll gladly give it)." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"Nothing" Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"New Haven is way better than people give it credit for. I had some of the best Italian food in my life on their famous Wooster Street. Also, New Haven is really a college town, so when people compare it to NY, Boston, D.C. or the other major east coast urban areas, they fail to grasp this point. Once you take it on that level, it's great! Plus, it's close enough to most of the areas that you can visit on the weekends any time you want (and let's face - you're in med school - you ain't going every night of the week)." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Overall, Yale is a sweet school. Its students were the best I've come across so far, but the interview day was a big rushed. One of the students advised coming back for 2nd-look weekend where you get a much better feel for the school and its students. I look forward to it given that interview days are pretty artificial. Hopefully I get in!" Report Response
