Why I Chose Yale:
For the four year duration of an undergraduate program, the Yale campus will be the very center of my sporting and academic universe. The student faculty ratio, bulldogs swimming team, course pathway and the 315 year old Yale institution of higher learning all ensure that my resident planet will be eclipsed by no other.
