How to Get into Brown University


          Brown University is an Ivy League university found in Providence, Rhode Island. Brown University is made up of the Brown School of Engineering, Alpert Medical School, Brown College, and Graduate School. Brown is famous for its Varsity sports teams known as the Brown Bears. Brown University recently ranked in the top 20 national universities in the US rankings. Brown has a less than 10% acceptance rate so it is a very, very selective college. Brown is also famous for its secret societies in the 1700s and 1800’s as many of the other Ivy League colleges including the Franklin Society and Federalist Philermenians.

Step 1

More than 90% of Brown incoming freshman are in the top 10% of their graduating classes. The average Brown entrance GPA is 3.8. You will need to excel academically in high school if you want to be even reviewed for admission to Brown University. You will have to focus on achieving scholastic perfection in each of your high school classes. Strive for A’s in every class if you can to help your chances of getting accepted into Brown University.

Step 2

Average SAT scores for Brown University are between 650 and 770 in each of the three SAT subject areas: math, critical reading, and writing. If your SAT practice scores are in the high 500’s do not fret. You can still reach the high 600 range if you use practice with SAT prep books. It is good to take a test before doing any practicing to determine your baseline SAT level so that you will be able to see how much you improve by taking the SAT tests.

Step 3

Know your Brown application deadlines for admission. The Brown regular Fall admission deadline is January 1st. The early decision application must be postmarked by November 1st. Brown transfer admission students must apply by March 1st.

Step 4

Sign up for a Brown Alumni interview. In lieu of a campus interview Brown freshman applicants can set up an interview with a graduate of Brown University, a Brown Alumni. You will set up a time and place to meet for the interview. The Brown Alumni will interview you as well as tell you about their college experience and they will report results back to the Brown admissions department that can help in their decision process. This is also a good way for you to ask any questions you have about the college experience at Brown.
