Just all around the best school in theQuite BrightNeuroscience/Cognitive Science
Just all around the best school in the entire world. Incredible people, incredible programs, incredible place to spend 4 years. Providence is great for 4 years, no more probably. Everyone at Brown is open minded, incredibly approachable and nice, and so so interesting. The only part about Brown I don't love is the financial aid department. There's always so much going on on campus you'll never be bored or out of options.

I was excited to get into Brown butAverageChemical Engineering
I was excited to get into Brown but it isn't what I expected. I expected fantastic but it's more mediocre and not too different from the schools my friends go to. I kind of feel like I'll be scamming prospective employers because they will think I got a better education than I actually did. I made good friends, good people with good hearts, but Providence can be real sketchy at night. All in all, not what I expected.

Pure liberal arts in the "I like hangingAverageBiology
Pure liberal arts in the "I like hanging out at coffee houses" sense. Not much drive among students here since there are really no graduation requirements. Pretty easy to get through, but tough to get a job because students are not qualified for anything. Good for the entitled set who don't have to worry and can suck on the family for the rest of their lives.
