Academically, Yale drove home the point that no matter how smart you thought you were there was always someone smarter. Furthermore, there is no correlation between academic success and national origin or gender.

I now have a beard that is mostly gray. I also have a mustache that curls up at the ends.

The Yale experience helps in later years in finding the best sources of help for solving technical or business problems. It would be interesting to observe our politicians working together, remembering that even Einstein was wrong sometimes.
