WHY YALE SHORT ANSWER; 'Fred Plaut Recording Studio and The Shubert Centre'

As an international student who has always longed to experience the cultural diversity America has to offer, Yale's location in New Haven, the cultural center of Connecticut, will enable me experience that cultural diversity.

Consequently, the specialization of Yale's Psychology program in research of clinical psychology, among others and the musical resources such as The Irving S. Gilmore Music Library, The Fred Plaut Recording Studio and The Shubert Centre for Performing Arts, that Yale and New Haven provide will make it possible for me to pursue my passion for a Psychology and Music double major.

Hi, Rebecca)
What is exact word limit for this?
Well, I think your answer is not strong enough for Yale -- it's about nothing. I've seen a lot of answers like this and what they all lack is elaborating on why exactly some Uni suits to you. I guess you need to add more stuff about yourself .

The Irving S. Gilmore Music Library, The Fred Plaut Recording Studio and The Shubert Centre for Performing Arts

don't waste words listing all the facilities and centers

Thanks for bringing my attention to that. I have revised it to meet the character limit.

As an international student who has always longed to experience the cultural diversity America has to offer, Yale's location in New Haven will enable me experience that cultural diversity.

Most importantly,Yale's Psychology program's specialization in clinical psychology researches and the various musical resources available in Yale and New Haven will make it possible for me to pursue my passion for a Psychology and Music double major.

Your revision is better than the original--less name-dropping is a plus. Names are cheap to get and require less than 30 seconds to pull up a Yale campus map. Maybe talk about something that you'd ONLY find at Yale, something that makes Yale different from other schools. Why can't you double major at other universities? Also, I feel that any student, international or not, with a strong command of some big words could have written this sentence. Showing passion for something is, IMO, a way to demonstrate your interest when you have nothing else to say. I'd suggest emailing some psychology/music professors at Yale for some insight...just say you're interested in their psychology program and maybe they'll have something special to say.
