What three areas of study listed below interest you most?
Computer Science, Economics, Italian
Why do these areas appeal to you?
I see computer science as a refined way of thinking that allows me to find solutions to all types of queries. To me, economics is finding patterns in the ways that people make choices. I want to study both computer science and economics to develop a solid understanding of decision-making, which will prepare me for whatever job I take after graduation. I also hope to develop new technologies that make the world a better place through entrepreneurship and research. Separately, learning languages has always been an exciting challenge, and I think Italian is the most beautiful language of all.
Why does Yale appeal to you?
I love the supportive and stimulating atmosphere of Yale. The residential college system will allow me to easily become friends with people outside of my classes and build a solid academic support system that includes my freshman counselor. The two-week “shopping period” for classes would allow me to explore classes I wouldn’t usually take as a Computer Science major, such as Game Theory and Constitutional Law. Additionally, as a senior at Yale, I would have the chance to do original scientific research for my senior project, which will give me the chance to explore my independent interests.
