Any hopes for me?

<p>Is there any hope of me getting into Brown with a 28 ACT? (27 E, 25 S, 33 R, 27 M) I have taken the hardest classes in my school and am ranked 3/240. I have also started a successful online jewelry business… is there any hope for me with my low ACT score?</p>

<p>yeah definitely try!</p>

<p>Brown has shown itself to be a bit more flexible about test scores than some other top schools. Because Brown has an open curriculum, it tends to favor self-directed individuals who can succeed without a lot of handholding. Starting a successful business can be one indication of such self-directedness. </p>

<p>You should definitely apply, but make sure you have a range of backup options, too.</p>

<p>thats true, make sure to improve score if you can.</p>

<p>I am in the same situation; any other thoughts?</p>
