Yale is a private college located in New Haven, CT. One of the seven Ivy Leagues, a string of East Coast colleges founded in the early 1700s including Harvard, Yale, Dartmouth, Columbia, Brown, Princeton and the University of Pennsylvania, it boasts a strenuous, although rewarding, academic curriculum as well as decent sports.
Yale is a very coveted college; GPAs and SAT scores are not all you need to get in, as essay-writing and extra curriculars are very important to the application. Some believe Yale takes kids of rich donor parents; however, this is somewhat untrue as Yale has a fair albeit rigorous application process though legacy has been proven to help somewhat. Very few students who attend Yale, except some on sports scholarships, have SATs under 2300; as well as few maintaining GPAs throughout high school under 3.8 or 3.9.
Yale University has a mediocre campus; the town in which Yale is located is rather barren, and up until about 1994 or '95, quite crime-riddled. Students at Yale do have the option of taking jobs at places such as Subway, etc. to earn extra money.
All in all, Yale University is a highly coveted college that is difficult to get into and stressful.
