hy did you choose to attend Yale SOM?

I chose SOM because of the diverse, close-knit community and our traditions. I wanted a business school where I could find my own niche, but the broader community was united through its traditions. From the Yale-Harvard game to the SOM Hockey team to Wine Class to the Ski & Snowboard club, I found that these were what brought the incredibly diverse student body together from conversations that I had with various current students and alumni. We are a community of passionate students in our reflective fields as well, so in every conversation with a classmate I learn something new about their field, from the circular economy to military backgrounds.
