Why you chose Yale: This world-renowned school has an incredible legacy. I walked on campus for the first time when I was a freshman in high school and fell in love. The students were so kind and showed much enthusiasm for Yale. I heard nothing but great things about the residential college system as well as the focus that is placed on the undergraduates. Finally, probably the biggest factor of all, I absolutely loved Coach Rompothong and the team.
