Admissions strategy touts science resources

Abstract:
The recent influx of money into Yale's research facilities, coupled with an increase in Yale students interested in the sciences, may validate the famed whispers from the cornfields — "If you build it, they will come."

The "modest upward trend" over the past few years in the percentage of matriculating students with an interest in science may be linked to the University's efforts to change the common perception of Yale as a primarily humanities-oriented institution. In presentations for prospective applicants around the country and on campus, the admissions office is putting a greater emphasis on Yale's commitment to the sciences, both monetarily and philosophically, Undergraduate Dean of Admissions Jeffrey Brenzel said.

Vivek Raman '11, a prospective engineering major, said Yale's decision last year to build the Institute for Nanoscience and Quantum Engineering heavily influenced his final decision to come to Yale. Raman was weighing offers of admission from Stanford and MIT against Yale's.

"Yale's pouring money into facilities like the nanoscience research building to show its science students that it cares," he said. "While currently, [schools like] Stanford and MIT may have the slight advantage in science and engineering, that's going to change really fast in the next five or 10 years."
