Yale graduates who knew Brett Kavanaugh and his accuser Deborah Ramirez in college said they doubt the Ivy League university would have taken the woman's allegations seriously.


"I don't know how Yale would have handled it all," one of Ramirez's acquaintances told CNN.

"Very likely if something like that happened you wouldn't report it to the university, you may tell a friend," Minouche Kandel, a woman who attended the same residential college as Kavanaugh when he was there, said. "It wouldn't have even occurred to me to say something."

When the Supreme Court nominee and his accuser attended the elite school, "there was just not the same infrastructure," Kandel added.

Graduates who spoke with CNN painted contradictory portraits of Kavanaugh and Ramirez. The nominee was by most accounts privileged and hard-partying, whereas his accuser struggled more to fit in due to her more "humble" background as a Puerto Rican woman who did work-study to pay for school.
