    No one can give solid answers on this, because no one who will comment is on Brown's admissions committee (and at this point, someone who was wouldn't even be able to tell you, since they haven't seen the rest of the applicant pool, they don't know what they are looking for, etc).

    modestmelody said it best. If you did well in high school (read: good grades, solid boards, good extracurriculars and something to show for it) you have the same 13% chance or so that everyone else in your pool has.

    everyone has a chance
    i'm no admissions officer...but your grades look good and your schedule is decently strong (obviously i don't know what your school has to offer so i could be wrong)...your gpa and sat II's look good...but the SAT I score is on the low end....if you can take it again and get at least into the 2150 range it would be good...

    i'm just trying to help out
    like daveb said, it's really hard to tell you what your chances are at brown
    my speculation is merely from stats i've seen and past accepted/rejected profiles i have seen on this site

    anyway, good luck! i'm applying to brown too! more competition...just what i need ;P
