Gilad Edelman

New Haven, CT


Yale (JD)

Gilad is currently a student at Yale Law School, but Manhattan Prep will always be his favorite institution. Before law school he worked from time to time as a jazz saxophonist in New York City.

The owner of a respectable 770 GMAT score, Gilad threw himself into teaching after graduating from Columbia University, when he found himself in need of a part-time gig to sustain his time-consuming habits of saxophone practicing, crossword puzzling, and coffee drinking. He quickly found that, between his lovable students and absurdly talented (and just absurd) colleagues, this is probably the best job he’ll ever have.

Nowadays, when he isn’t busy teaching for Manhattan Prep, hunching over 19-pound casebooks, or figuring out whether a certain comma needs to be italicized, Gilad can be found honing his cooking skills or looking for someone to practice speaking French or Chinese with. And he still busts the saxophone out from time to time, when the moment is right.
