How advantageous is it to apply to Brown ED as opposed to RD?
So I just toured Brown today for the second time and fell in love with it even more! I just feel like I'm the type of person who would fit perfectly into Providence and would utilize the open curriculum to its fullest extent. I love the vibe and the students there too. The class offerings are amazing to say the least. I've really been considering going ED to Brown; exactly how much will this help my chances? I know that RD acceptance rate is ~7% and ED is 20%, but people say that it's solely because of legacy and athlete students. I feel like they admit more during ED too because the student has to go to Brown if accepted. Is this true??
Also, if I don't get into Brown ED, I'll be applying to Harvard RD with legacy. They still factor legacy in the RD round right? I know it's less than SCEA though.
So would it be worth it to apply ED to Brown?
