Integrated curriculum is interesting and practical. Required international experience is enriching and selects for students interested in that opportunity. Most classes are case-based and quite practical. Many opportunities to work closely with faculty and get to know them on a personal and professional level (for example, several professors advised me on a career decision, and one even did case practice with me prior to consulting interviews).
Quality of Life
Yale has a wonderful community. It is affordable, and has more cultural opportunities than we could ever take advantage of. The campus is fine: reliable tech services and has great community spaces. New Haven has worked with Yale to put in place real improvements in New Haven: great restaurants, a new farmers market and rail-trail bike path, etc. It is an urban area, and less dense than NYC, so one must be careful when out at night, but there is never a need to travel alone: there's always someone to walk with, biking is fine, and shuttles and cabs are available.
