Does Brown ask for senior quarter/mid term grades? Do we need to send it only when asked?

They do ask for it

There is no pre-med major at Brown.

There are many majors that the typical pre-med prerequisites fit into well. I"m sure that’s what they mean, they intend to apply to medical school and will take courses accordingly.


Just a reminder of Brown speak…

Concentrations are the term for areas of study or majors. Important you are consistent in your essays.

Good luck to everyone.


Yes, I have heard some schools send it on time, as it’s listed as a requirement in application portal some schools send when asked by AO etc.

Hello, I answered the original post as requested, but thank you for your insight.

Any news on the decision date?

Last year was on the 16th at 7pm EST, so I’m expecting to hear back from them for ED around the same time. They usually send an email out about a few days prior to take the application checklist down to prepare to put decisions in.

Any knowledge of when decisions come out?

May I ask What is Idoc? Thanks!


So they actually would send u an email asking for it? I don’t think we were asked for anything, I remember the portal said when the senior grades are ready, ask conselor to send it when that is available. Our semester grade comes out in Jan, so we didn’t send in anything…

If they ask for senior grades, that at least means they are seriously looking into the case, I would take it as a good sign…

Did the admission office hint that results would come out next week? Then we have a long weekend ahead…
