I realize that the Why Yale short answer is silly, but it's the sad truth. Also, someone got in even though they wrote about how Yale uses sand instead of salt. What they're looking for is something special about Yale and how well you write.II. Why Yale?
What in particular about Yale has influenced your decision to apply? Please limit you response to the space provided.
I really want to go to Yale because it's one of the best schools in the country- and the easiest to pronounce. I was born with a short tongue, so it is hard to pronounce the "r" and the "th". Out of the entire Ivy League schools, only Yale and the University of Pennsylvania don't have these sounds either, but U of P seems too crowded. When I proudly say that I went to an Ivy League college, I don't want to mispronounce and become a laughingstock.III. Short Takes
Please respond in 25 words or fewer to each of the questions below.
1. What would you do with a free afternoon tomorrow?
I would find new songs for my harmonica and try to learn how to bend notes.2. Recall a complement you received that you especially value. What was it? From whom did it come?
"You Got This"- Omar Nolasco, a friend who wrote this in a P.S. of a goodbye card when I was about to move3. If you could witness one moment in history, what would it be and why?
I would choose Independence Day because I wish to know if the Founding Fathers signed it in August like my textbook states.4. What do you wish you were better at being or doing?
I wish I was better at realizing the relevance of things because I can never make a decision off the bat.5. If you were choosing students to form a Yale class, what question would you ask here that we have not?
How do you react when you are frustrated?
