    Be unique. It's cliche, but true. Brown loves students who eschew the system. Here, I've been able to take courses without having prereqs, something I wrote about doing on my application. You will be reading a book a week--for one class. That could mean you're reading 4 or 5 books a week, depending on how many classes you're taking.

    Prospective students should continue to study hard, take advantage of professor's office hours, and practice time management skills.

    Try new things. Take weird classes (especially in your first couple years). Don't be afraid to ask for help with anything. Despite what they say almost nothing has an absolutely final deadline, all it takes is talking to someone directly.

    Be yourself. Brown cares more about the student holistically than the other Ivies. They really evaluate you as the student, applicant, and then what numbers you bring to the school. Mention that funny experience you had when you first tried to bake a cake or the most embarrassing thing that's ever happened to you in a supplement. They've received thousands of the self-inflating essays that students have stretched to make themselves seem like the best insert-quality-that-they-think-the-colleges-are-looking-for student. In the end though, through personal experience and much comparing of essays, I've found the kids at Brown wrote about things as mundane as breaking bones, trying foreign foods, and taking math tests. Also, be confident. Don't try to change yourself for a school . Chances are you won't like it there if you have to pretend to be someone else.
