Why I Chose Yale:
Yale appealed to me because it was the best place for me to pursue my academic and athletic goals to the fullest without having to compromise in either area. I immediately connected with the team and the coaches and I fell in love with the campus. I can't wait to be involved in such a remarkable environment!
