Everyday I wake up amazed at the quality of of the institution that I attend. Yale has provided me with so many opportunities and it never treats you as a number. I also think that the school is the perfect size as you will continue to meet new people, but you will always see familiar faces. The residential college system is phenomenal and is an excellent way to form a smaller community within a bigger one. The spirit that people have for their residential colleges is astounding (Go Davenport College!!!). My classmates are also amazing, and I can't believe how well versed and normal the majority of the people here are. Sometimes I feel like a spoiled brat here, and the feeling of living in a castle (Yale's campus and Residential College setup is similar to Hogwarts). The workload can be very challenging sometimes and you may want to give up, but this is the price of attending a top university. However, for the amount of work that we have, Yalies do know how to have fun, even if it doesn't involve wild drinking and partying (Which does exist here). There is also a lot of support both academically and emotionally. The resources available for you to take advantage of is mind-boggling. If you want an all around great experience (academics, social life, friendships, quality of life) be sure to come to Yale, you won't regret it.
