I’ve now explained why I decided to go to Yale in two different posts, but one major regret is that neither included any pictures [apologies in advance for the worthlessness of my cell-phone camera]. What follow are considerations not fully explored in either of the previous posts. Interpret them as you like:
1. Stanford in the spring/summer/year round?:
2. Yale in winter:
3. Stanford on April 26:
Only 326 days… until the next Pretzel Day.
2. Yale on February 7, 9, 16 & 23. So far as I know, these signs were not planted* in anticipation of my arrival:
5. Stanford every day:
In addition to being a name, Dinkelspiel also figured in Grandpa Irwin’s response to my proposal to found a law firm called Treiger, Treiger, Treiger & Treiger:
When I was at NYU, I was interviewed by a San Francisco law firm, Dinkelspiel, Dinkelspiel and Dinkelspiel. Not wanting to change my name to Dinkelspiel, I declined their offer.
6. Yale every day [disclaimer: this entry and the next are not technically photographs, but they are quotes, so think of them as images and get over it]. The following list – taken from the YLS website – looked one country short:
This class  has collectively lived or worked in:
Argentina, Australia, Austria, Belgium, Bosnia, Brazil, Burkina Faso, Cambodia, Canada, Chile, China, Costa Rica, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Democratic Republic of the Congo, Denmark, Dominican Republic, Ecuador, Egypt, Finland, France, Georgia, Germany, Ghana, Greece, Honduras, Hungary, India, Iran, Iraq, Ireland, Israel, Italy, Japan, Jordan, Kosovo, Kuwait, Lesotho, Liberia, Luxembourg, Madagascar, Mali, Morocco, Namibia, Nigeria, Norway, Oman, Pakistan, Panama, Peru, Poland, Qatar, Russia, Rwanda, Sierra Leone, Singapore, South Africa, South Korea, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Taiwan, Tanzania, The Netherlands, The Philippines, Tunisia, Turkey, Ukraine, United Kingdom, Venezuela, Vietnam
tinman: I am seriously considering choosing Stanford over Yale… What do people think are the biggest differences between them?
the_assassin: The biggest difference is climate and women’s attire. At Stanford you’ll have beautiful women walking around in scantly clad clothing year round. At Yale you’ll have a bunch of man eating monsters like Hillary Clinton. Sounds like a simple decision to me.
8. Yale every night:
You may note, correctly, that going from Penn to Yale represents the largest possible decrease in female ‘hotness ratio‘ within the Ivy League. Your ability to do so is likely aided by the fact that this graph has been conveniently organized according to decreasing female ‘hotness’. Don’t let that distract you from the blue bars, which denote male ‘hotness’; by moving from Penn to Yale, my own personal appearance will immediately improve. Statistical fact. h/t M R-S
And with that, I will hopefully put the topic to rest
