Title: You've Got Yale!
Air Date: January 19, 2009 at 12:00 AM PST
The students find out who has earned early admission to Yale. Serena and Dan struggle over divergent college decisions, and Serena connects with a new Shakespeare teacher, Rachel Carr. Ms. Carr makes the grave mistake of giving Blair the first "B" of her life; a livid Blair proceeds to teach the unenlightened Ms. Carr a lesson of her own. Chuck pairs up with an unlikely ally in his battle with Jack over Bass Industries, and Nate and Vanessa have a romantic night (ho-hum) at the opera.
