Your grades might slip a bit -- nothing personal, just regression to the mean -- and I'd think Yale is clearly better than top 3-5 percent at a T25.
Finishing No. 1 in the class has a lot of cachet, but it's hard to predict that will happen. Yale is the safer bet; you should sell high.
Not quite sure that Yale is better for most career paths than top 3-5% at a T25. It is better for some things for sure.
I can't think of anything Yale wouldn't be better for. No grades and a small class size = whatever you wanna do.
