Personal Story

"Getting into Brown wasn't too exciting. It was the only college I applied to and I was certain that I'd get in.


My sister was a junior there and my brother graduated a couple years ago from there and is now at Harvard, so going to Brown was a given."


Useful Advice

"The only advice I have for college is to be well rounded. I think the reason why I got in was because I'm pretty good at a lot of things. I'm good at sports, I'm pretty good at school, and I do a lot of extracurriculars so I was a pretty attractive candidate.


I think that if you're well rounded you can beat out kids who are exclusively nerdy and geeky, and you can beat out those kids who are exclusively athletic and sporty because you both."
