Yale University by College Prowler

College guides written by students for students.

Your ultimate source for honest, unbiased information, College Prowler delivers an inside look at the top colleges and universities in the United States. While writing our series of college guides, we felt it was critical that our content was unbiased and unaffiliated with any college or university.

We think it’s important that our readers get honest information and a realistic impression of the student opinions on any college campus—that’s why we intend to publish information about all aspects of a particular college, even the terrible parts you wouldn’t find in a campus brochure. While we do keep an eye out for the occasional extremist—the cheerleader or the cynic—we take pride in letting the college students tell it like it is. We strive to create a college guide that’s as representative as possible of each particular campus. Our guides cover both the good and the bad, and whether the survey responses point to recurring trends or a variation in opinion, these sentiments are directly and proportionally expressed through our guides.

College Prowler guides are in the hands of students throughout the entire process of their creation. Because you can’t make student-written guides without the students, we have students at each college campus who help write, randomly survey their peers, edit, and perform accuracy checks for every college guide that we publish. From the very beginning, student writers gather the most up-to-date stats, facts, and inside information on their colleges. They fill each section with student quotes and summarize the findings in editorial reviews. In addition, each college oruniversity receives a collection of letter grades (A through F) that reflect student opinion and help to represent contentment, prominence, or satisfaction in each of our 20 specific categories. Just as in grade school, the higher the mark the more content, more prominent, or more satisfied the students are with the particular category.

Once a college guide is written, additional college students serve as editors and check for accuracy even more extensively. Our bounce-back team—a group of randomly selected students who have no involvement with the project—are asked to read over the material in order to help ensure that the guide accurately expresses every aspect of the university and its students. This same process is applied to the nearly 300 colleges and universities College Prowler currently covers. Each guide is the result of endless student contributions, hundreds of pages of research and writing, and countless hours of hard work. All of this has led to the creation of a student information network that stretches across the nation to every college that we cover. It’s no easy accomplishment, but it’s the reason that our college guides are such a great resource.

When reading our guides and looking at our college rankings, keep in mind that every college is different and that the students who make up each college are not uniform—as a result, it is important to assess colleges on a case-by-case basis. Because it’s impossible to summarize an entire college with a single number or description, each guide provides a dialogue, not a decision, that’s made up of 20 different topics and hundreds of student quotes. In the end, we hope that this guide will serve as a valuable tool in your college selection process. Enjoy!

About the Author

If I had to write this guide at any other time in my life, the result would have been different and biased by my perspective. But now that I have just graduated and have had the time to reflect honestly and objectively, I can step back and see the experience for what it truly was—amazing. As an English major, I have had the opportunity to immerse myself in what I love, to read the words of geniuses, and to participate in their legacies. But as a student at Yale, I have had the opportunity to grow as a person and to realize that I am not just a list of achievements or an academic machine; I am a human being. In my time at college, I have encountered people whose talents blow my mind and whose life experiences could make me laugh until I cry or cry until I laugh. These moments were some of the most important I experienced at Yale.

At this point, I feel prepared to enter my future, although I am completely unsure of what it holds for me, whether it is graduate school, publishing work, or writing. I hope that this guide proves helpful, whether it assists you in making a choice or informs you of what your future holds. It is so exciting to be where you are, and I wish you the best of luck!
