Harvard sucks, Princeton doesn't matter. The ghosts of Eli rattle the Ivies blue.

Question
Yale is a wonderful school.Quite BrightHistory/Histories (art history/etc.)
Yale is a wonderful school. The student body is intelligent, friendly, and diverse. Students are passionate about what they do, especially when it comes to extracurricular activities! The campus is beautiful. New Haven doesn't deserve its negative reputation. While it isn't a perfect city, there are many good restaurants, and many opportunities for community service. And, of course, academically, Yale is amazing!!!!! Yale has something called a "shopping period". Students don't have to register for classes until 2 weeks into each semester. That way, students get to go to all the different classes that they are considering taking, and then they decide which of those classes that they want to take. I highly recommend Yale University!

Question
Yale engineering is great.Quite BrightMechanical Engineering
Yale engineering is great. My class sizes are usually 12 or below, making for a really close group, including the faculty. I know many of my professors out of class, and some even participate in intramural sports with us. There is no competitive spirit between students, we can work together without worrying about grades, and often help each other out.
