Who was Yale University named after?

Yale University was originally called the Collegiate School when it was founded in 1701. It was renamed in honor of Elihu Yale in 1718. Yale had made a fortune with the East India Company and later the diamond trade, and he made some sizable donations to the school—books, a portrait of King George I, and some expensive textiles—and the school returned the favor by adopting his name, becoming Yale College. Yale was born in Massachusetts, but he left for England when he was three years old and never came back, so he never even visited the school that ended up bearing his name.

What must your grade average be to get into Yale?

4.0

-------------------

Most top schools use a "holistic" system, so there is no required GPA or SAT/ACT score. Obviously, the top students will usually have a 4.0 GPA, but it is possible to get in with a 3.5 or even a 3 if you have an impressive application.

What are the exact requirements to get into Yale University?

Re: There are no "exact" requirements, however act composites generally need to be in the low 30's and sat's in the 700's. Yale does look at all aspects of the admissions including highscool records, teacher recommendations, and personal essays. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Actually there are lots of requirements, whoever wrote that crap above: Sat scores 700-800 Act Composite: 30-34 Admission Requirements for transfers: - High School Transcript -College Transcript -Essay or Personal Statement -Standarized Test Scores -Statement of good standing from prior institutions - Not Required: Interview - Lowest grade earned for any course that may be transferred for credit (on a 4.0 scale): 2.0 -Maximum credits/courses from 2-year institution: 18 - Maximum credits/courses from 4-year institution: 18

---

And whoever wrote the above crap, there is nothing you can do that will guarantee acceptance to Yale. I know people who got into Harvard with 1700 SAT, failing all their AP tests, etc. The biggest thing you can do to help yourself is writing a wicked essay.

Will universities still accept someone whose grades are shaky the 1st semester of their junior year but are all A's their 2nd semester?

You should be able to get into Upenn or Duke, but forget about Harvard and MIT they almost never let people in with shaky grades. Try several different schools that you would like to go to and that you think might accept you. I have heard of someone with a 2.8 average and got into Harvard because of his sport and community activities. Just try harder and try to bring it above a 3.0 and you should be fine.

How should you answer a 'salary requirements' question on a job application?

I always put "will discuss". That way, you're not taking a lower salary than you should get and you're not too demanding in you answer either. You could say: competitive rate. Avoiding a specific figure is a good idea since it may be outside of the pay range that they are offering so it may cut you out of the running. "While only a market base salary is expected, it is anticpated that will grow based on my performance". I interview folks on a daily basis. Answer every question on the application and leave that one blank. The interviewer will bring up the question; how much money are you looking for? That will be the time to negotiate considering you meet the minimum qualifications and they are interested in you.

What rank in your class should you be to get into Princeton University in New Jersey?

You should be at or near the top of your class.

It's impossible to be more specific, because admissions is not an exact science. Admissions officers balance and weigh a number of different factors. Moreover, the significance of your class rank depends on where you went to high school. Being near the top of your class in a large school with a good reputation means more than being at the top in a small, unknown school.

How do you respond to a company requiring salary requirements?

Asking about salary requirements is a minor information-gathering question some companies try to answer before making a final decision regarding a candidate, or to help them eliminate a candidate before beginning the interview; however, salaries are always negotiable regardless of what you might write or say in preliminary discussions, should you get offered the job. A possible written answer is that you would expect to be paid a competitive salary for the field commensurate with the years of experience, education, and qualifications you bring. A possible answer in a face-to-face discussion is that you require more information regarding where the position fits in the overall organizational scheme, including what the budgetary as well as the people responsibilities are. Finally, you could put down a figure, but be sure to check out the competitive salaries for the position so that your numbers are in-line with theirs. Clare Keating for 3C Communications Consulting Group

my old faithfol answer to this is prevailing wage.... which will get you to the interview and then ball rolls from there.

This is a very tricky question, as this is essentially an elimination question. Eg. if you aim too high, then you're out, and if you aim too low, then you're also out (interviewers get suspicious if you ask for a salary much lower than you deserve). Agreeably, the best answer is a bit more than their budget, the worst answer (if you get the job) is a few thousand dollars less than their budget.

Now the right answer is a combination of things, one: their budget (which is an unknown that can easily be known), and your experience. What you should do is research the internet for the average salary for your job taking into consideration the years of experience, and pad it with a few thousand dollars.

Now in case you're a fresh grad or an immigrant that just landed, then, and only then, an answer of "I'm sure you'll give me whatever is fair in the market". They'll probably give you a low salary, but that's your only option to get your foot on the stairs. Good luck!

Yale or Harvard?

Okay, I might be completely biased because I go to Yale, but from what I hear it's sometimes very miserable at Harvard. Their newspaper even wrote in article conceding defeat in that area. The general population at Yale is in love with Yale, and Yalies, and college life. I don't regret the decision one bit. ANOTHER GOOD ANSWER They are both fantastic schools. I want to go to Yale for my bachelor's degree and the go to Harvard Medical School. But Harvard does have a defeating reputation and Yale can be just as reputable, but go by information on their websites, and what you want to major in and the specialty you want to be in. Harvard and Yale are both good on a lot of things so go by what you find out.
