LORELAI: Rory, I was supposed to graduate from high school. Go to Vassar. Marry a Yale man.

Vassar, previously discussed.

We now discover that Richard and Emily wanted Lorelai to attend Vassar, a private liberal arts college. The beautiful campus, flexible curriculum, small class sizes, and strong encouragement to study abroad sound like things Lorelai would have actually enjoyed.

Vassar and Yale have a historic relationship, making marriage to someone from Yale seem an obvious choice (for people of Richard and Emily’s generation, when Vassar was a women’s college only, and when women had fewer career options).
