耶鲁大学本科申请文书需要2篇，common application一篇以及耶鲁大学特定题目一篇，两篇文书字数均要控制在500-650字之间。common application文书题目参见《2015-2016年美国大学本科申请Essay Prompts文书题目》；耶鲁大学特定题目所有新生必须提交，可以写个人经历、人生目标、兴趣爱好以及个人追求，但是不可以与common application文书雷同。
The Common Application and additional Yale-specific questions give you the opportunity to tell us more about your background, activities, interests, and motivation for applying to Yale. You are asked to write a total of two essays and to write about your extracurricular activities in the spaces provided. Write openly and honestly about activities, interests, or experiences that have been meaningful to you. Most importantly, write in your own voice about topics that you are passionate about. If an essay doesn't sound like the person who writes it, it will not work well as a personal statement. We read essays very carefully and try to get a full sense of the human being behind them. Concise writing is often the best writing, so please try to limit each essay to approximately 650 and 500 words, respectively, for the Common Application essay and Yale-specific essays.
Please note that the Yale freshman application will be available on the Common Application website by September 1. The Yale-specific questions will include one additional required essay for all applicants, and one optional essay for prospective computer science and engineering majors. The essay prompts for the 2015-2016 Yale Essay Questions are as follows:
Yale's essay question is required for all freshman applicants:
Please reflect on something you would like us to know about you that we might not learn from the rest of your application, or on something about which you would like to say more. You may write about anything—from personal experiences or goals to interests or intellectual pursuits. (Please answer in 500 words or fewer).
If you selected one of the computer science or engineering majors, please tell us more about what has led you to an interest in this field of study, what experiences (if any) you have had in computer science or engineering, and what it is about Yale’s program in this area that appeals to you.
