As a 3rd year student at Yale, I am very satisfied with the quality of education and student life. I have a background from middle class America, so you can sure to not expect an aristocratic fop writing this report.

Overall, the education experience is almost unmatched. I have several high school friends in Harvard, NYU, UT, and other good schools and I usually tend to pity them. My friends complain about impossible workloads, paucity of social lives, lack of decent members of the opposite gender (Yalies, don't worry about this), or a myriad of problems related to college. Yale isn't perfect, but it most certainly outranks other colleges in many aspects. Any student here, given that he gives two shits, will love the educational, social, and enlightening experience at Yale. The letter grades I've assigned gives the rest of the story concerning certain aspects of Yale.

Sorry about that wall of text. In conclusion, Yalies will not be disappointed. If you care enough to be accepted, you'll probably enjoy the school. If you apply solely for the (granted, immense) prestige related to Yale, then turn back. The school will be hell.

Addendum: I've seemed to have forgotten the single aspect more students care about- Social life. To put it simply, it all depends on what you ask for. Yale, with its many seducing libraries, will lure knowledge thirsty scholars to great paleness and social isolation. On the other hand, if you want a social life, theres the city of New Haven 10 minutes away! Friends, drugs, opposite sex, you name it. Yale has it. It just depends on your disposition toward living.
