If you're a student at Yale University, you're to be congratulated. You made it into a school that accepts just five percent of all applicants. That doesn't just happen. It means you have smarts. It also means you are hard-working, disciplined, and dedicated.
Now is no time to let up, though. Getting into Yale is impressive, but it isn't the same as graduating from Yale. That takes even more hard work, discipline, and dedication. Coursework can be difficult; professors can be demanding; and, let's face it, over the course of four years, life is going to intervene occasionally. You're going to get sick or wreck your car or go through a difficult breakup, and you're going to struggle. We all make mistakes—even Yale students.
