Brown is definitely a nice school, but I know I'm not qualified enough due to my test scores and ECs. My parents will not believe me despite all of the stories I've shown on here, as well as the common data info. They are heavily stressing that I apply to it as my one reach school. Is there any chance that I will make it, or should I just drop this school off my list and not waste my time.

I'm just a little frustrated rn because my parents won't take anything I'm saying seriously, but they're probably annoyed for the same reason... Is there any advice on how to convince my parents that there's no point in applying to somewhere that's completely out of my range?
