Why I Chose Yale: "I chose Yale because of the tradition, sense of community, and combination of academic and athletic excellence. The close knit student body and swimming and diving team provide the opportunity to be a family away from home while simultaneously being surrounded by some of the most passionate, motivated, dedicated and driven students and athletes. Ultimately, I knew that Yale was the place I could make the most of my college experience and where I would be the happiest."
