<p>Any feedback is greatly appreciated</p>

<p>The bowling extracurriculars may stand out. Do you have any leadership experience outside of bowling-related events?</p>

<p>Your grades are, of course, very strong. Your scores are good but, relative to the rest of Brown’s strong applicant pool, will not be of help, as they fall at the lower end of admitted students’ interquartile range.</p>

<p>Good luck to you, wherever you ultimately attend.</p>
