is it tougher to get a hamilton than get into yale?
not that i'm expecting to be even in the ballpark, i'm just curious
Different ballparks, I would expect. My impression is that the Hamilton is more to compete with Harvard than Yale, since Harvard has a similar class profile, character of student body, and admissions profiles. Or, at least much more so than Yale. However, in absolutes I'd say they'd be right around the same level of difficulty, despite the fact that a large number of Hamilton recipients opt for HYS anyway.
