Ok, I know this sounds kinda ignorant but my daughter just deferred from Brown - she was just devasted - and now won't complete her other applications. She says that she thinks she still has a shot at getting into Brown (which she may) and won't submit the other half of her applications as a result.
I am trying to remind her that Brown is a very competitive ivy league school and she should complete her safety and state schools in addition. However, the more I remind her, the more upset she becomes. This morning, she refused to talk to me and slammed the door on my face when I asked if we could work on her remaining 7 applications. I even take the day off from work so we could write them together. She locked her room door and did not leave the rest of the day except for meals.
I think one reason she did not get into Brown is that she can be impulsive and moody, which her teachers may have said in her recommendations. In all honesty, I could care less if she didn't go to an ivy league school, I just want her to be happy and get into a college.
I am publishing this forum just to have a second opinion and more voices to remind my daughter that no one can expect to get into a school like Brown. So, CC users, how hard is it to get into Brown? In addition, should I write my daughters applications if she refuses to complete them?
