Compared to ND and Duke, I suspect Yale has a higher percentage of "poor" students, but also a higher percentage of 0.01%-ers and famous, well-connected types. At ND and Duke most students come from doctor/lawyer-type homes. Obviously I'm speaking in extremely broad brushes, but I think I'm generally right, when I say that Yale has a higher percentage of kids from both ends of the spectrum. Given ND's relatively chintzy reputation for giving out financial aid, we're the last people that should be calling out others for coming from privilege.
