the yale essay is so weird...it gives you 6000 characters to talk about why you want to go to yale, but then the directions also add "use this space to discuss other things not in your app." SO, do they want why yale? and other stuff all rolled into one essay, or are you using the space to write 2 separate essays? there is also an additional page, so i was thinking of doing the why yale part on the first page, then going to the second page and attaching another essay...only i dont know whether we are supposed to use up all 6000 char. on page 1 before going to the second page. what did you do? two separate essays, or just put everything in one? what did you talk about?
