Personal Story

"Honestly, I don't know how I felt. I assume that it was probably good.

I got into Cornell in the fall and after that my interest in college dropped dramatically. As soon as that decision came out I pretty much lost all interest in school, in college, in pretty much everything academically related. It's a wonder that I didn't fail all my classes that year.

But, I think that when I got into BrownI probably felt ok. I don't think that I was overly thrilled, but I was probably excited."

Useful Advice

"Hard work is really the only way to get there. While it's good to have tips and tricks on how to get in, for the most part, everything boils down to really hard work. I don't really have any other advice than that.

All I know is that I worked pretty hard to get into all the schools I got into. It took a ton of studying, sacrificing time with friends, entertainment and a bunch of other things just to put myself in a spot to have a good shot of getting in."
