Yale University is a private, independent research institution founded in 1701 as a Collegiate school to educate students both in church and civil state. All through its over 300 years of existence, the institute has been dedicated to training the next generation of world leaders through research and innovation and has thus, successfully established itself as one of the primary institutions of the US Education System.

Having been a proud parent to 5 US Presidents and 62 Nobel Laureates among other brilliant alumni to its credit, the institute currently is a coveted choice among aspirants across the globe seeking to study in the USA with an international population of around 11%. It provides nearly 85 majors and over 2,000 diverse courses for its candidates at both undergraduate and graduate level.

Admissions at Yale University observe an early decision and regular deadline of November 1 and January 2, respectively. The institute receives over 35,000 applications annually but admits merely 6% of them for further studies at the university. This reflects the low acceptance rate of the institute and the fact that it is highly selective while offering admissions and expects only the cream of the crop as its students.

    REVIEW OF YALE UNIVERSITY

    I opted for yale because of the academic freedom offered to students. You could take a diversity of classes before deciding on your major sophomore year. The culture of the campus and students was also something I felt was a good fit for me


    Course Curriculum - 

    I think the course curriculum offers students a lot of freedom but also makes it hard to hone in on what you really like and are good at. Also, the curriculum makes it hard to figure out what classes are worth taking, and what isn't.
