Why Yale? "When I began to visit schools my sophomore year, it was always easy for me to pick out the schools I disliked. It seemed that there was a negative aspect to every school ... until I saw Yale. Aside from the field hockey component, which I must say, is incredible, Yale is absolutely wonderful. I am in awe each time I step on campus, and there is no place I would rather spend the next four years of my life."
