Because Brown and Chicago both do not use the Common App, I was hoping to apply to one of the two. I am aware of Brown's open curriculum vs. Chicago's core and their different calendars and grading systems. But I still need to know more about the student bodies of the schools. I live in RI and love Thayer and Brown's environment.
My gut feeling is leaning towards Chicago, but then after reading lots of literature on both schools, reason tells me that Brown might be a better fit. I plan on majoring in biology or bme. Current students and prospies, could you tell me which one I should choose?
