Why I Chose Yale:
When I visited Yale, I was immediately inspired by the community and passionate people I met. I remember sitting down with my parents at the beginning of my college search and telling them, "I think I would like to go wherever I feel the most inspired." That place is Yale. Everyone I meet here has incredible enthusiasm for their experience at Yale- including their sports, their studies, and their friends. Most importantly, they were enthusiastic about sharing the amazing experience they were having with me. I immediately felt like a part of the community, and I knew I wanted to be a part of Yale. I couldn't find this feeling at any other place, so I knew that this was the place for me.
