Why They Chose Yale

YDS Graduation

 

Greetings!  Each year some of our finest students contribute short essays detailing why they chose to come to Yale Divinity School.  You will find all of them linked below.  They are a great read, and testify to the diversity and strength of the community of YDS, as well as the wonderful paths our students take. 

So do yourself a favor and take some time to read why some great people chose Yale!
