    A strong academic profile will of course go along way. I recommend sending in testing results rather than doing Test Optional, but that's just my opinion. Definitely do an on campus tour and get student feedback on the university.

    If you're looking for a place that'll challenge you academically while staying true to a smaller sized college, Brandeis is a good place for you. It isn't necessarily a party school and it lacks the exciting flare of a Boston college, but it makes up for it in wonderful students who are all enthusiastic about being there and wanting to make a difference.

    Open yourselves up to new experiences and sorts of people, but don't come to Brandeis expecting to party hard every weekend. If you study and work hard, you will be rewarded for it. Also, don't come if you're looking forward to four years of sunshine, sundresses, and jean shorts. It's very cold in Waltham. Bring your snow boots!
