It's a small school where you can get personalized attention from some of the greatest researchers in the country.

This program is very flexible and self-driven, which is both a pro and a con. We are not required to take a ton of courses (but can) but for that reason we have to do a lot of self-learning. We get to spend most of our time researching, which is a huge pro if you're good at structuring your own time, but it's a con if you need deadlines as motivators. Also Yale does a great job of making living affordable. New Haven is not the best city in terms of size, but I think if you make a solid group of friends and establish a support network you can keep yourself from getting bored.

Incredibly academic environment. The rest is so-so, but I hope the academic environment is why you're going to grad school.....

Yale is a great place to go to graduate school. Social life in New Haven has been one of the most pleasant surprises of coming here; there is a graduate student bar that is a wonderful gathering place and you can always show up and know a bunch of the people there. New Haven has amazing restaurants, is easy to get around, and is very affordable on a graduate student stipend. The students in my program are some of the happiest graduate students I've ever interacted with; we have a great graduate student community and a supportive environment.
