The January 19 episode of "Gossip Girl" has been given a preview. In "You've Got Yale", things are rolling around the academic affair since it is time for students of Constance Billard and St. Judes to find out who is and isn't worthy of early admission to Yale University.
Serena bonds with her new Shakespeare teacher, Rachel, who has no clue the wrath she is about to suffer after giving Blair the first B of her prep school career. Chuck pairs up with an unlikely ally in his war with Jack over Bass Industries. Nate and Vanessa spend a romantic evening at the opera.
Rachel is played by guest star Laura Breckenridge who appears for the show for the first time in the episode. A note from the producer revealed that she is an idealistic fresh face at the school and is mistaken for student on her first day there.
