As someone has danced in many areas during my first year, I can say something about many of the departments. The Chemistry department is intense and Pre-Med students will eventually end up taking Orgo and Mol Bio in the same semester, under the tutelage of invisible professors. TA's will be your only guiding light outside of the lecture hall.

The Math department is equally intense, but the professors are much more accessible and willing to take time out to assist each individual person.

The Judaic Studies and African American Studies departments have some of the most brilliant minds you'll find and are surprisingly enjoyable, despite the heavy reading load. Class sizes are intimate and inviting.

Foreign language studies are very reminiscent of high school style learning on the basic level.

Administration seems like a dismembered body sometimes. Campus security has employed some of the most annoying people who take their jobs too seriously. And the social atmosphere with other students is DEAD if you don't a) drink, b) conform to stupidity, and c) like tall trees, old buildings, and a dead town.

Overall, if you're deciding between Princeton and Yale, choose Yale. :D
