Why She Chose Yale: "For tennis, the work ethic of the team and their cohesiveness. Their chemistry was something that I didn't experience at the other schools I visited and their commitment to do well was a unified effort. You could tell that they really were passionate about what they did. For academics, Yale allowed me to pursue both my interests, tennis and academics, and take them both to a new level. The students were very friendly and gave great insight into the campus life--not one person I met had anything bad to say. The residential college system was very attractive and so were the large amount of resources readily available to the students."
