Why did you choose to attend Yale SOM?

I chose to attend Yale SOM due to its unique combination of having an intimate MBA program while being so strongly embedded within the larger university. Within my first year, to use a few examples, I had already met all my classmates; contributed to research as a part of an environmental law school class; and helped set up a speaking event between the Divinity School, The School of The Environment, and the School of Management. Rather than gaining admission to one world class program, I feel like I have access to over a dozen. This amount of resources and different perspectives at Yale felt unique among programs.
