Hey there! It's great you're considering Yale. To answer your question, yes, Yale is typically considered a research university. They have numerous research opportunities across various fields, such as sciences, engineering, humanities, and social sciences, to name just a few.

In comparison to other research universities, Yale definitely holds its own. What sets it apart is its strong focus on undergraduate education, which can make it easier for students to find research projects they're passionate about and forge connections with faculty. Of course, the resources and opportunities at other top research universities are also impressive, so it may come down to personal fit and priorities.

One of my friend's kids graduated from Yale, and they had fantastic research opportunities throughout their four years. It's definitely an environment where you can be both academically challenged and supported while diving into research. Best of luck with your college search!
