Life after brown--> low endowment?

<p>So, I was talking to a friend who is a current student at Brown and he mentioned that students at Brown generally are accepted to great grad schools but don’t do so well on the career level right after graduating (i.e. wall street, goldman sachs, or other fields as well, etc.). Is this true?</p>

<p>And this was a reason why endowment to Brown is not as high because Brown grads often end up in the non-profit sector (which I think is great). Consequently, I was also wondering, low endowment= how is Brown’s financial aid? (their website doesn’t elaborate much), and funding for research/study abroad?</p>

<p>Um, career level stuff, I've never heard that or gotten that impression. In fact, we were the top recruited group at Goldman Sachs for quite some time.</p>

<p>However, we do have a tremendous number of students who end up working in non-profit.</p>

<p>There is already another thread on CC discussing the effect (or really, lack thereof) of endowment at Brown.</p>

<p>financial aid at brown is one of the best, with very few exceptions

<p>financial aid that you get for brown is carried over if you study abroad (brown will subsizidize your study abroad expenses if you qualify for aid)</p>

<p>there are a lot of opportunities for research funding, as well as funding for people interested in internships with non-profits

<p>Also keep in mind that brown's "low endowment" puts us at what, 28th place out of 4,000+ undergraduate institutions</p>

<p>yeah, i heard that the number one employer of brown grads is goldman and that the president of brown is on goldman's board. as far as endowment, couldn't it just be that brown is relatively small, both on the undergraduate and graduate level compared to similarly prestigious schools? they have exponentially larger numbers of alumni</p>
