Why I Chose Yale: “I chose Yale because I wanted the best possible combination of elite academics and elite swimming.  When I took my official visit, I found a group of girls who were just like me.  We all want to achieve in the classroom and bring an Ivy League Championship back to Yale.  Coach Henry and Coach Korman have the resources and the plan to make this happen and I can't wait to be a part of it.”
