Q:Does Brown give it's undergrads individualized attention? I recently got accepted to the class of 2018 (yaaayyy!), and Brown's been my first choice for as long as I knew about it, but I'm worried about losing the community and focused attention of a LAC, such as Wellesley or Haverford. Any insight? Thank you :)
A focus on undergraduate education is one of the many things Brown boasts. Undergraduates compose over 6,000 while graduates are under 2,000, making its undergrad student body proportionally the largest as compared with other ivies. To that point, all professors are required to teach at least one undergrad class while at other universities you may find that some of the best professors are more interested in graduate teaching and research.
On a smaller level, there are tons of ways in which undergrads get individual attention, including its advisor program. Each professor, and even deans!, are required to hold office hours/open hours, where students can come in and discuss issues/comments/concerns/questions with them. Additionally, most research positions are given to undergraduates (although grad students are typically present to assist) to make sure they receive necessary experience.
Q:what is the minimum sat score to get accepted into brown for undergrad? thanks in advance xx
Contrary to what I feel may be popular belief, there is not an actual set “minimum” score. Based on Brown’s Admission Facts and Figures page, there were people admitted into the Class of 2015 whose SAT Scores were below 590 in Reading, Math, and Writing. The admission rate for that year was 8.7%. I think this demonstrates that scores are not the only aspect of your application that is taken into consideration, so I would not let your scores stop you from applying.
