Brown is my first choice. Unfortunately there is only one SAT test date before the early decision deadline in November. I want to retake the SAT because currently my score is a 2010, but I also need to take another subject test because Brown requires two (I already took US history). I have a few options if I want to apply ED- take the ACT (which I don't really want to do because the only test center is far away), take the subject tests in October and submit my application with a 2010 SAT (which I know is a low score for Brown), or retake the SAT in October and submit subject test scores late (bad idea).
It looks like I will have to apply regular decision, which Brown alleges has the same chance of admission as early decision. Applying RD would give me more than enough time to increase my SAT scores and take a subject test. But I've heard that applying ED increases your chances and I know that ED acceptance rates are always quite a bit higher than RD rates. Of course, many factors explain this. I'm wondering if anyone here happens to know about ED chances specifically at Brown, based on what you've seen or whatever. If ED chances are actually better then I might as well suck it up and take the ACT in September.
