I'm sure similar posts have been made, but I haven't been able to find them.
My question is, although I find Brown an attractive place to be(albeit I haven't visited it yet), the one thing that makes me pause is the open curriculum. I've read modestmelody's posts, and i agree with his points, but I still am undecided.
I like the idea of having a core education, and people argue that I could make my own core at Brown if I really wanted to, if I get in.
However, what kind of student does the Open Curriculum suit?
And how about me? I'm undecided as to what I want to study, ditto for passions etc. I do well in all my classes, but no clear preference or leaning towards a particular subject (history is a hobby of mine, but not my idea of a major)
