Undergrad College: Yale University '21

Major: Ethics, Politics & Economics; Classics (Intensive)

Work Experience: As a recent graduate of Yale University, I am excited to begin my first year with CollegeVine! In many ways, CV was a natural fit for me -- at Yale, I worked for over two years in the Office of Undergraduate Admissions, beginning as a Senior Interviewer in the summer of 2019, during which I interviewed over 200 first-year applicants for the 2019-2020 college admissions cycle. After the summer ended, I became Lead Recruitment Coordinator, a full-time position responsible for executing and overseeing Yale’s numerous post-admissions decision yield initiatives, as well as serving as a spokesman for the university both in person and online. Over the past two years, I have had the privilege of interacting with hundreds of students and their families at all stages of the college application process.

My Admissions Story: Having always been interested in studying a variety of subjects within the Humanities and Social Sciences, I applied to a smattering of liberal arts colleges and universities (mostly on the East Coast) with strong departments in these areas, large and diverse student bodies, and varied extracurricular opportunities. When my college admissions decisions rolled in, I immediately accepted an offer from my dream school, Yale University, which I had always felt best embodied the opportunities and goals that I desired from my college experience -- and since that day, I’ve never looked back.

Audience questions

These are questions from the audience that we had time to answer during the live session. If you have any other questions, you can request an answer from Robert and other CollegeVine experts in an upcoming livestream or on the Q&A Forum anytime.
33:38@BCassie:Yep, we can hear and see!
33:41@HelloHome:Would you recommend not saying your race if you're Asian?
35:07@vaishnaviv:Should we include honor rolls as awards?
57:14@HelloHome:How does Yale (or colleges in general) look at more a non-traditional Honors/Awards section?
59:08@vaishnaviv:Which section(s) stated in the student profiles holds the most or highest value in the college admissions process?
61:43@HelloHome:Since I'm homeschooled and don't have access to many standard competitions or awards, I'm planning to put down more accomplishments (things I did) rather than things I won (e.g. Edited a book that sold 3000 copies, Performed with X group in front of 60K people, etc.)
63:15@vaishnaviv:If a student has a unweighted GPA of 3.7 and a weighted GPA of 5.6, with a solid SAT score ranging from 1400s-1600, as well as spiked extracurriculars/awards, do you think that would be a good balance?
