Yale looks as great as advertised. The architecture looks more cohesive than Princeton's, at least from your pictures.
I think what sets Yale apart is not only the cohesiveness of the architecture but also the urban nature with which the campus was designed. Most collegiate gothic campuses in America are set against a pastoral landscape (by design) whereas Yale, from its inception, was developed in the Oxford model.

By the way, the neo-gothic tradition is alive and well. Here's a link to a webcam of Yale's newest residential college currently under construction: http://newresidentialcolleges.yale.edu/

Thanks for the revisit to New Haven.

Spent some time there and the restaurant scene is as advertised by the other posts.

Out of the Ivy League schools I've visited, Yale was my favourite campus.
