Admissions to Brown are becoming increasingly selective as timeMay 02 2010Chemistry
Admissions to Brown are becoming increasingly selective as time goes by; the admit rate for my class year was approximately 10%, and it decreased to approximately 9% for the upcoming class.

Although I am certain you have heard this many times before, there is no recipe for being the perfect candidate. All you can do is do what you are passionate about and demonstrate your dedication through your writing.

I had written a very long independent research paperMar 23 2010Economics
I had written a very long independent research paper (about feminism, 40 pages or so) and sent it in. I also had a high GPA, AP scores, and SAT scores.

I think that more than anything Brown is looking for students who have initiative, self-control, and curiosity: the things that are required to succeed in the open curriculum environment.
SAT: 2310 Female

I wrote an essay about my philosophy regarding learningJan 29 2010Economics
I wrote an essay about my philosophy regarding learning. I was aware of Brown's interdisciplinary nature, but I wrote the essay based on personal beliefs which happened to match the positive-discovery oriented-and independent approach to education at Brown.
