<p>Why have you decided to apply to yale? what about it makes you want to go there?</p>

<p>Where to start? The awesome academics, the beautiful facilities, the huge amounts of resources they have to spend.</p>

<p>Perhaps the number one reason I want to go to Yale is because of the amazing people.</p>

<p>I agree with newt. For me, it's all about the people. The unbelievably engaging, intriguing, talented, intelligent, phenomenal student body. I can't think of anything more exciting than spending four years living, learning, and exchanging ideas with such people.</p>

<p>That said, I really really love the residential college system, the sense of community, the focus on extracurriculars (especially a capella, political union, and journalistic publications), the Directed Studies program, and the location. I'm also a sucker for gothic architecture.</p>
