Yale doesn't have publicly available admissions OR student blogs, but it does have student-written "Bulldog Blogs" accessible to admitted students. Last year, when I was an admitted student, I discovered that these were actually just ripped from the particular students' personal blogs and reposted on the admitted students website. I thought about publishing all this information online, but decided against it. Well, a year has gone by, and now I am happy to share at least one of the current batch of Yale blogs--my own!
The Sam Jackson College Experience will soon be beamed to the whole crop of admitted students, in time for the regular decision round. I'm really excited about that level of access to this great audience!
I may be motivated to say more things about Yale since I'll have a huge increase in Yale-bound readers, but if you feel that I will be tempted to say only good things, think again! I love Yale and have lots to say that I think will help convince people to come join me in New Haven--but I am not planning to skew coverage (you'll see the same tough angles I have taken in the past) and am not toeing the admission office's line on anything I don't believe in. I will have more details for everyone after spring break, but I'm excited!
