Mary

My school is best known for a mainly North East environment. If you are not from the North East then you are an outsider. Everyone parties at the University of Tampa and usually every day of the week. Everyone comes from money.

Paul

The academics and the architecture. The academics are some of the best in the world, with some of the most passionate and knowledgeable faculty members I have ever met. In addition to the staff, the courses are completely unique and the material is fascinating. Any person interested in any field of study can find more than enough classes to interest him or herself. The architecture ranges from Georgian to Victorian to Gothic and more, and each building has its own incredible history and features. Every student also has dozens of opportunities to work with and meet accomplished alumni.

Yale is best known for being one of the greatest schools in the world. People oustide the Ivy League don't know much about it other than that, however. Within the Ivies, Yale is still very much revered but not thought of as an untouchable place. In that circle, Yale is the place where students are generally incredibly happy (with school, extracurriculars, and campus life in general).
