<p>The title speaks for itself</p>
<p>Residential colleges are awesome.
Reasonably good social scene.
Soooooooooooo many course offerings.
Film Studies major.
Blue is a great color.
Just an all around awesome school.
Plus bulldogs do it better.</p>
<p>Good pizza?!!!! Oh man, I should apply early there. I love pizza!!!</p>
<p>alsoo its just better!!!!!!!! an article resently it said yale's administration was realli nice and helpful while other schools were sink or swim (harvard and columbia--> go figure).</p>
<p>I second the bit about residential colleges - the colleges are awesome, both because of the community of students and the academic & other support provided by the deans and masters. DPort feels like my family away from home. Complete with a resident dog. :p</p>
<p>I love how Yale is incredibly academically competitive, but the students aren't so absorbed in their own work that they don't know how to play hard too. I spoke with the director of the glee club and a teacher at the music school (he was my choir director up at Interlochen), and he described Yale as "the friendly Ivy." Everyone seems really open-minded and accepting there.</p>
<p>Plus...who wouldn't want Handsome Dan on their campus?</p>
<p>I second the comment about the friendly ivy, plus I love the emphasis yale seems to place on the arts, especially music. And unlike other ivies, the mascot is a physical thing instead of a color...</p>
<p>Yeah even this place is a lot more friendly than the other ivy league boards...</p>
