I got alot from Yale and am grateful to it. After Yale, I went to grad school at the best dept in my field and then went on to teach at several of the best universities in the country. Based on that experience, I would say the following: 1. I would still choose Yale as the best college. The academics are outstanding and the profs treat undergrads as at least as important as grads unlike too many research univ. 2. The workload can be very high expecially if you are seeking the most learning possible. Many profs appear to think that their class is the center of the universe, but luckily they tend to be passionate and brilliant, so it almost works. 3. New Haven was not the greatest town to live in. It's gotten better since my time, however. 4. Students are happier at Yale than many places but less happy than at others. Among peer institutions, it is probably in the middle. 5. Yale freshman do have a tendency to say negative things about Harvard. Main reason is that more Yalies have been rejected by Harvard than have rejected Harvard undergrad. This facator generally disappears by one's sophmore/junior as one learns more beyond that admissions perspective.
