Yale boosts 5 US Presidents as alumni, is featured in The Great Gatsby, and is one of the most selective in the country.

I have been to four Ivy League campuses. And I must admit – what sticks with me about Yale is not the campus or the buildings – but in fact it is the people of the University. For an institution that can be perceived by most as inaccessible and intangible by students that feel far inadequate, this place is special. Over the years, I continue to find it palpable, approachable, and staffed by warm and friendly people who make everyone feel incredible competent.
