Default Yale

I, ll think yale can also be better ,, as there would be more chance of being ranked higher at yale itself when applying for match, later on.

I assumed yale to be more IMG friendly compared to Harvard. ...!!
If it is so then I think harvard would be better. .!!

I know you've probably already made your choice. But, just for the sake of people who will be reading this, I'm currently doing a rotation at Yale. My friends are at Harvard. In comparison to their experience, my experience here has been wonderful. The faculty at Yale have been very friendly and helpful in every way. While my friends had like a general orientation in their respective dpts, I got to meet all the other students who were doing a rotation in Yale, along with the faculty. We even had an Official welcome dinner organised by Yale for us! If you have to choose between the two, I'd say Yale. You can always re-apply to harvard, for the next months by just sending them the application fee. But, Yale doesn't accept students for electives that easily.
