YALE is my dream school...and the only one I want to go to.

<p>Alright, heres the thing. Yale has been my dream school since, I don't know how long, forever! I really want to go to Yale! The thing is, I'm just wondering, what are some of the main things I should focus on for getting in? Thanks so much for your help!!!</p>

High SAT scores
Top or very close to top rank
laudatory letters of recommendation
hardest class load
an excellent interview
Outstanding, personal essays that set you apart from the rest of the applicant pool.</p>

<p>... in short, it's really hard to get in.</p>

<p>Add to Newt's list "good luck." Even for the very top candidates, Yale is a crapshoot. The good news is that, with some research, you'll find other schools that will work for you.</p>
