Question
Yale is by far the best institution IBrightOther
Yale is by far the best institution I could've ever imagined myself going to. The people that I've met, from my friends, to my society, to my extracurricular, are amazing. Academics are unmatched and especially with shopping period, it allows you to truly explore your interests. The work is very manageable, it gets hard sometimes, but it is always a manageable difficulty, not an impossible one. The student culture is good, and there's always something to do. It's very collaborative and not cutthroat in any way. My biggest advice? Get lost in Yale, you won't regret it.

Question
Outside of a technicalPhilosophy
Outside of a technical engineering field, a liberal arts education is still the best preparation for the work world; it allowed me to be a self-learner and make contributions I otherwise might have not made.
