What are your general comments?

"Sucked in transport - don't take the shuttle from JFK ($50 - 70 ONE WAY). Once I was there, Yale rocked. The dorms were right next to the school (library, hospital, lecture, labs) for easy access. The Yale System is great: self-driven learning, reduced pressure, independent planning and time management. Not to mention facilities and faculty are top-notch. Joint degrees are definitely something to consider with a school like Yale. " Report Response
