What is your overall opinion of this school?

Brown University is a perfectly-sized university situated ideally on College Hill. The community is uplifting and the people you meet here all have a fascinating story to share. The emphasis on meaningful learning (and not just grades) promotes a sense of purity in my intellectual and growth. The quads are amazingly beautiful, I often look around and think to myself: I am sooo grateful to be here!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I love nearly every aspect of this school. The students are academically focused but still maintain a high level of socialization and fun. The classes and professors are engaging, and there is something for everyone. The open curriculum makes it a wonderful place to try classes you've been interested in but don't necessarily need for your major. I feel safe and supported (physically, emotionally, and academically,) by all the programs available on campus like safewalk, CAPS, and the deans. The only thing I could wish to improve is attendance at sporting events. I love attending games, and think it would be more fun if more people went, got into school spirit, and tailgated.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I love Brown University! I am an athlete from Florida, I have been blessed to go to such a great institution. It's far from home, but when I am away from Brown, my team and all of the people I have built relationships with I feel like I am away from home. I love how much I get to travel and see! Snow is cool, literally I am frozen for much of the school year but after years of sweaty upon stepping outside, freezing is a nice change! Brown offers amazing courses, great athletic opportunities, and so many other extra curricular activities, I doubt I will get a chance to see them all before I graduate. I am the first person in my family to attend an Ivy League school, I was very nervous and felt unprepared. After completing a year, all of my fears have faded. There is no doubt in my mind that my teachers, advisors, peers and coach will do the most in their power to help me succeed. While Brown is a very expensive school, I do not regret committing to the Brown Women's Varsity Track and Field Team on October 29, 2018! Thank you!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I have really regretted coming to Brown and strongly considered switching to another school. The quality of the facilities is very low, especially dorms and food. But the worst surprise was the low quality of the classes and teaching. This wasn't universal, there were some exceptional teachers. But overall, there's a pattern of the classes being disproportionately difficult with poor support offered and the actual existing support offered being unhelpful. A lot of the professors seem to enjoy making their classes as difficult as they can, focusing on difficulty instead of the quality of what is being taught. I have seen this across domains, in psychology, computer science, economics, chemistry, and biology. You should only go to Brown if you are exceptionally good at pure academic skills and don't expect to need much support and help.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Brown University is my dream college. I want to get admission to Brown's PLME program. I have completed Brown Universities Summer Program and fell in love with the college. I am a straight A GATE Student in my Junior High School Year. I am ranked 2nd out of 1024 students with GPA 4.8. I have 7 APs and 8 college courses for Fall 2018. I am also a student Ambassador in Norco Community College. Once I went there for the Summer Class, I realised that all the students were equally or more smarter than me. I loved how the professor was involed in every student, He taught us to think outside the box. I liked the studios atmosphere. Overall I would say Brown in best college. I hope I get admission to Brown's PLMe program.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

If you are a rich spoiled girl or a boy, you will find plenty other here and will be very happy. If you want to be with serious people taking academics seriously and doing serious things with their lives, maybe go to MIT or something instead.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Brown University is the perfect combination of many things! I am a Computer Science major, so I definitely appreciate our stellar Computer Science program. There are many different options for new and skeptical students, as well as experienced programmers. I also love Brown's commitment to politics, art, and literature ... everyone has many interests!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The vibe at this school is very different from it's Ivy League counterparts. Far more collaborative and greater academic freedom to pursue whatever interests you. Brown does not have many graduate schools, so faculty and staff are very much undergraduate focused. There are many professional opportunities as well, with many of the big banks, consulting firms (founder of McKinsey is a Brown grad), medical schools, etc. regularly coming to campus to recruit.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Overall, I think Brown University is an amazing place. It's in a great location, right next to RISD in case you're interested in art classes, the people are friendly, and the open curriculum is amazing. I love it. I think that anyone who has Brown on their radar should apply just for the sake of applying if they are interested.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Brown University is overall one of the best adventures that I have embarked on. The student body is so diverse, I'm not only learning more from classes but also from my peers in an every day setting. Brown is also truly a stress-free environment. Even during finals, when everyone is busy, cramming, and stressed, the general atmosphere is relaxed and happy- feels right at home.
