Apparently, A Different Yale than the One W. Attended

by Ron Hogan

Robert Birnbaum talks to author Lan Samantha Chang about life as "a child of immigrants, raised in the Midwest" and how she chose her college:

"I think I should have wanted to party, growing up in Wisconsin that was kind of the norm, wanting to party. Actually, when I went to college I discovered that mostly people want to party. But I have never been a party person. I have also been kind of a one-on-one person, an introvert. I was just thinking, why Yale? I had heard that you had to take more classes at the same time there, than other schools. It just seemed more serious."
