Good classes and teachers. Ritzy and forcibly old-school architecture. That's about where the good ends.

Student body is generally uppity, condescending, and exceptionally cut-throat. Only a good fit if you are an "in" student with acapella, newspaper, political union, or one of the other preferred student groups. Others, especially everything athletics, gets dumped on by students and faculty alike. Very little resources go to athletics and student support of teams, but will spend hundreds of millions on orchestral practice rooms and performance halls used by maybe 5% of the student body.

Administration is even worse. Do not give a SINGLE $#*! about student life, just reassuring parents, trust fund babies, and international students about safety in the city and the lack of rape culture. New Haven is a fine, not dangerous city, just very unexciting. VERY little to do in surrounding city. Same goes for sexual climate, they make a mountain out of a molehill. Those are their only concerns aside from making money and giving paltry sums to preferred artistic programs.

DISCLAIMER: Yale is by far the chillest, most approachable, and accepting school in the Ivy League. THe rest are even snootier, self-absorbed, and money-obsessed, although some may be in better locations.

But compared to your average public school, Yale treats its students like absolute infants. Coddles and caters to the loud and demanding minority of the student body, resulting in a worse daily life for most. For the price I paid I would go to a good state school like Universities of Michigan, Texas, or Virginia.
