Reflections of Ivy League Project

This year the Ivy League Project sent us a number of applicants for admission. The students whom the project sponsored were Mexican-American from communities that rarely have sent applications to Yale. It is not only an established mission of our admissions process to attempt to attract applicants who are traditionally under-represented in the Yale community, but it is also a joy to find such motivated and qualified applicants inspired by a program such as the one created by Martin Mares. This year three Ivy League Students were accepted to Yale. The program serves a tremendously valuable function for us: preparing students for the rigors of both our application process and our academic community. Without a program such as this one, I imagine fewer such students would have the opportunity to study at Yale. I hope the Ivy League Project continues to receive support from the communities it serves and from all who take an active interest in seeing students from disadvantaged backgrounds given the opportunities they deserve.

Hope VI presentation by Mr. Martin Mares was a success! Mr. Mares provided students and parents information about our program and also gave applications to interested students. We are so excited we had the opportunity for him to come and speak to the community. 

Mr. Mares also mentioned that he will also be in Phoenix on December 27th, 2008 to present the 10 steps to an effective Ivy League application.
