Hi, I am a rising senior at a competitive suburban New York public high school who is interested in applying Early Decision to Brown in the fall.
GPA: ~96.0/100 (My high school doesn't rank students or give a weighted GPA.)
SAT: 1540 (770 M, 770 EBRW)
SAT Subject Tests: 800 US History, 780 Chemistry, 750 Physics
AP: Will have 15 by end of high school. So far – 4 on Chemistry and 5 on U.S. History. Predicting mostly 5s and maybe 1 4 on Biology, World History, Lang, Art History, and U.S. Govt. from this year. Will take Physics C (both), Macro, Micro, Lit, Calc BC, Euro, and French next year.
Extracurriculars: Editor-in-Chief of Newspaper, Sec-Gen. of Model U.N., Captain of Academic Quiz Bowl team. Also sing in Choir and A Cappella.
Summer: French Language Immersion program, Brown Pre-College course, Northwestern summer journalism workshop.
Awards: Multiple national writing awards including publication in a national newspaper and being named the New York state journalism scholar for a national competition.
I'm still choosing from a few essays I've written for the Common App but a major contender is one about being called a slur out of the blue and how it changed the way I thought others perceived me.
My likely intended concentrations will be History, Art History, or English.
I am not an URM nor a first-generation college student.
