    I’m 27, had a 5 year gap in my education since I left college to work full time to help my family.
    I’ve been in CC since spring 2019 and will graduate now in May.
    GPA: 3.53/4.0
    Classes taken: college algebra, pre-calculus, biology 1 with lab, macroeconomics.
    Classes currently taking: survey of calculus, chemistry 1 with lab, microeconomics
    PTK member

    Have worked full-time as a flight attendant for 6 years now.
    Letters of Rec: Economics professor who I had fall term and now this term, my pre-calculus professor from fall term.
    For the essay I wrote about my educational road, why I left college, what I did during my time out of college and in the workforce, what I learned about my strengths and weaknesses, what I acquired from my work experience, why I decided to go back to school, how Brown’s RUE program would help me achieve my goals and what courses specifically I want to take while there.

    @llinrs hmm I haven't received one either :/ I hope they are still going through the applications and figuring stuff out. Are you a veteran @scareloki618? I really don't know anything about the admissions process for Brown RUE but looks like in the 2018 thread, someone said that all veterans get interviews, but not all non-veterans get interviews. https://talk.collegeconfidential.com/brown-university/2066227-brown-rue-2018.html

    @llinrs Hey Raysa, your app sounds super strong! I guess doubt for getting accepted is the wrong word because there's definitely a possibility, but I would honestly just be surprised more than anything. I didn't do great in high school(2.8 GPA) so I joined the Navy and started taking college classes where I've been able to do pretty well.
    I've got about a 3.7 GPA, PTK member, loads of community service and was a finalist for a coveted veteran scholarship to UVA, where I had to go to NYC for the final interview.. it was a cool experience.
    My standardized testing isn't fantastic with a 1160 SAT (diagnosed with mono a week before the test) but I still somehow placed in the 70th ish percentile.
    My essays are mainly about self reflection and improvement after losing my mother and growing up in the Navy.
    I've already been accepted to UW Madison and RIT. Waiting on apps from Brown, Duke, Stanford, NWestern, UT and Boston.

    Did you apply anywhere else Raysa?
    And any other active duty or veterans out there?

    @ti36xpro @princelink88 I had my interview last week with a really nice woman who graduated in '95. We had a really great conversation about Brown that lasted about 40/45 minutes, it was more informal than anything but she had a lot of good info about the school. I'm a pretty personable person so the conversation came effortlessly, just ask some good questions to get them talking about their time at Brown and it won't feel like a one sided interview.
    I'd also recommend thinking about how you would best use Browns open curriculum and having some clubs/activities written down that you could mention at some point in the convo to show your well rounded.

    @gobigorgohome4 Thanks, I hope Brown thinks so, too. I really think you have a great chance of acceptance, your high school performance should not be an issue because they look at you holistically and from what I can see, you’ve done superb in college and you’ve served in the Navy. I’m rooting for ya! Also, congratulations on your acceptances! I hope your get acceptances from the other remaining schools. How did your interview go? What was asked of you?

    Aside from Brown, I applied to Yale’s EWSP, Columbia’s School of General Studies, Cornell, Vanderbilt and UVA. Haven’t heard back from any school as of yet and haven’t received an interview offer from Brown. So I’m kind of unsure how It’s going for my app with Brown. I did check the admission portal and I did notice that they added a withdrawal of application option that was not there before.

    @llinrs Thank you! I hope you also get into all of your schools, what major are you going for? The interview went super well it was like an informal conversation she just asked me to tell her about myself, what I hope to study and all that.

    My app also has the withdrawal option and I wouldn't worry too much about the interview. My veteran mentor graduated from Brown last year and said the interview doesn't influence the admissions decision very much.
