Personal Story

"I was so excited getting into Brown! Like have you seem providence? It is beautiful! I love the water, to buildings, the nature, the city as a whole is just gorgeous! That plus Brown is a low key Ivy. Its not as pretentious as a Harvard or Princeton and is better than a Cornell. It's that mix of being a cool ivy, but not being too pretentious. It's just cool.


I remember being so fired up after getting into Brown! It was maybe around 5pm and we were having a fashion club meeting when the results came out. I checked, obviously, and I started screaming. Some of my girls came over and saw it and started to scream too. We all just started running around screaming and laughing and jumping around because I had gotten into Brown! It was amazing!"


Useful Advice

"I know that if I could go back and tell myself something it would be to take freshman year much more seriously. I remember messing around and not really doing as well as I could have freshman year because I didn't think that it mattered that much. I figured that because I was a freshman, I could have a pass on doing a lot of things with the idea that 'I can figure it out later' on my mind. But, all that did was just make my sophomore year much more difficult than it needed to be.


If I could go back and do anything differently it would be starting to take school much more seriously much sooner in my life. If you're still a freshman, sophomore, or even younger, I'd encourage you to build good habits now like getting your homework done early, or spacing out studying instead of cramming. These early skills will go a long way in the long run of helping you be successful."
