Bad grades, depression and sleepness nights. And to be honest, I love every minute of it. Yale can be a great experience if you follow these steps.
  • a) Set up study groups and make friends from day one. Unless your some sort of baby Einstein, no body at Yale gets through without some serious back and forth with friends, especially in the sciences. Having a good dependable study group throughout college could me the difference between doing well and barely making it. Especially in Science.
  • b)Get to know the professors in your major and outside of it. they come in handy.
  • c) DO NOT SPEND YOUR WHOLE DAY/NIGHT STUDYING AND WORKING. Yale is hard enough without going sackcloth with your course load. You'll just burn out and be miserable. join some clubs (this is essentially for rule a)
  • d) Don't be afraid to fail or struggle. One bad habit Yalies (all most Ivy Leaguers) is that they run scared at the first bad grade or any course they can't breeze or scheme their way through. Don't get into this habit. Your career won't end if you're struggling through college.
  • e) Don't be afraid to ask for help. Nobody is going to think you're a retard if you have a tutor if your always in your prof's office. Its Yale—with occassional Dubya-like trust fund baby, you're not going to meet any stupid undergrads. Don't let your ego screw up your GPA.
    You lost me when you bashed Dubya. The way I see it, Dubya has the last laugh.
    commentAt the beginning it says 'not so bright' but i find you extremely informative. Don't sell yourself short, you made it into Yale you must be doing something right. :-) PEACE, LOVE and HARMONY.
