If you really want to go to Brown, makeSep 28 2008Other
If you really want to go to Brown, make sure your essays are top notch. Brown cares about those more than anything else (just look at the application - there's easily 2-3 times the amount of writing of any other college). Just write about something interesting and different (one of my essays was about the time my friends and I went to white castle) and the rest is really a crap shoot.
SAT: 2230 Male
Good grades, Extra-curricular activities, and Outstanding essay-writing skillsAug 29 2008Economics
Good grades, Extra-curricular activities, and Outstanding essay-writing skills... think about the ideal Brunonian and what makes you fit with Brown's philosophy (but don't lie... get in because it helps you grow as a person, not just because it's a cool smart school)
SAT: 1300 Male
Good grades and high test scores are a must,May 26 2008Economics
Good grades and high test scores are a must, but they're not enough. Your essays have to show that you're an actual person, and not just a test-taking machine.
SAT: 1580 Male

I played sports and had high test scores. Public service is also important.

To get into Brown I worked hard throughout myFeb 09 2008Neuroscience/Cognitive Science
To get into Brown I worked hard throughout my high school career and challenged my self by taking the most difficult courses offered at my high school. I studied hard and did well on my SATs and was active in my community. I think it is important for students to work hard, stay focused and challenge themselves. It is also important that students maintain a high level of academic excellents. A high percentage of students attending Brown were either valedictorians or salutatorians at their high school and the remaining percentages ranked in the top ten percent of their high schools graduating class.
SAT: 1350 Female
