Why Brown Essay

<p>I know this topic has kind of been beaten to death, but I’m interested in getting the 2016ers point of view. What do you guys write in your Why Brown essays that made it stand out?</p>

<p>I was told to be very specific by successful applicants from my school from the previous year, because Brown- they don't want slackers, or people who get lost in the freedom of the curriculum. So I checked out the courses and really thought about what I would take, and why. This was actually exciting, certainly more so than the other parts of college essay writing, which can be, lets face it...torture. Don't know if my answer to "Why Brown" is what got me in, but something did, and reading about the amazing choices made me love the place even more...Good luck to you!</p>
