"Advice from a YLS student: Go to Harvard"

Why is xoxo such a pit of ignorance?

New Haven does suck.  You'd think Yale could put like 2 billion aside and use the interest to support the local schools, provide better public services, clean up some of the worst neighborhoods, etc.  If they bothered fixing the city up they would own Harvard and Princeton, yet they think having extra money sitting in their endowment is more important....

I knew a woman who made a documentary about some labor hubbub at Yale about 10 years ago. I'm not generally sympathetic to the modern workers' movement ($17 an hour for cleaning toilets? seems fair), but the disparity of wealth in New Haven between Yale and the rest of the city, and how the Yalies ignored it, was disgusting.

One scene that stuck out in the doc was when the workers were protesting outside the gates at Yale during commencement, and the administration put cloth over the bars so parents attending ceremonies wouldn't see it. It struck me that that's the institutional solution to the town-gown relations in New Haven -- if you ignore it, it's not there.

 :o crap. sounds like my undergraduate in the little town of claremont, where the "ivy league of the west" is... I haven't been accepted to Yale, but have been stressing over whether I could say no to it. I have had a difficult time adjusting to the affluent and often ignorant intellectuals here in "liberal" california... Thanks for the heads up on New Haven... Yale will probably pre-empt my rejection... but at least now I know it probably wasn't the place for me.
