    it’s funny how Yalies (the ones who made it into Yale) don’t think it was tongue-in-cheek at all.

    And another important difference: People go to Yale to say they went to Yale. It’s better than Harvard in terms of undergrad attention, but, honestly, people don’t go there for the “atmosphere of creativity” or “its involved and progressive administration.” Whereas Wesleyan is a small, liberal arts school so while we’re prestigious and well-known in the academic community, it still makes a difference how we present ourselves to prefrosh.

    1. It is totally tongue-in-cheek, which is great, 2. it definitely shows that Yale students are capable, and 3. like pretty much all admissions materials, it is amazingly phony. The next generation of applicants would be better off just ignoring what admissions departments tell them altogether.

    It was pretty awkward, but I liked it, because like #8 said it was tongue-in-cheek. I agree with #5 and #7, though. Especially because I’m a Yale reject (I never stood a chance).

    This is awful.

    The second guy who sings is the guy who does those great YouTube videos though.

    “This seems to really come from the heart, and a reflection of how much Yale students genuinely love their school. Even my dad (diehard Harvard fan) was really impressed by what this said about the school – its atmosphere of creativity, its involved and progressive administration…it simply seems like a place that has a real spirit and joie de vivre.”

    Except there’s one horrifying difference between this and “Are You Wesleyan?”:

    “This video was an independent collaboration between Yale undergraduates and recent alumni working in the Admissions Office. All filming, editing, and vocal recording was done on Yale’s campus exclusively by Yale students.”
