    Definitely be at the top of your game, but don't stress. Be yourself. Brown wants diverse, intelligent, unique, and curious students. You don't have to be well-rounded. You don't have to be in sports. They want you as you. Not a cookie-cutter version of what people think colleges want: overachieving, musical and sporty geniuses who are involved in every single club and volunteer 24/7. Just be the very best you you can be.

    This is what I learned from a past interview: Everyone who requests admittance into Brown is offered an interview, which are hosted by volunteer past alumni. The school, from what I've understood bases who it accepts off of, in part, what kind of people made up the last graduating class. They might need more band kids, they might need more kids interested in language... it's to keep the school well-rounded.

    Many schools simply look for hard statistics (your SAT scores, class rank, etc.), but Brown is interested in many types of talents.

I did not have the best scores, but other types of talents can make up for that.
