Think twice about Yale
Hi All, I am a Yale 2020 parent. I want people to really think hard about sending their children to Yale. For middle class families from the Northeast or California it will be very very expensive and simply not worth it. For our family, Yale basically took every last dime making it impossible for us to help our child with law school. The financial aid models really make no sense and you will find yourself wondering how the kid from across town who went to an expensive private school and belongs to a country club gets financial aid. The resources aren't great. Classes are taught mostly by adjuncts. Only at Yale they don't call them adjuncts, they call them lecturers. Tuition goes up religiously 4% and the dining hall quality goes down each year. There is absolutely no advising. Your kid will have to figure it out themselves. Deans and Heads of Colleges help the kids whose parents have the big bucks. The Student Income Contribution is nonsense and hurts everyone especially low income students.39 replies
