Posts about Brown University
Hi everyone, I recently got admitted to both UC Berkeley and Brown University and plan to major in computer science. I wanted to get opinions on which school would be the better option. Brown is one of my dream schools but is over double the price of Berkeley so I’m leaning towards Berkeley. However, I still want to hear other peoples’ opinions. Also, the price I listed are the estimated total cost of attendance that the universities gave me in my financial aid offer and not tuition.
Hi, I go to the University of Michigan, a fairly up there uni, yet, there are plenty of classism issues where many who came from a poor background may feel uncomfortable because it's hard to afford things around here, and the type of things those from wealthier backgrounds talk about / their perspective due to their background just ends up being off putting. I usually don't think much of my race, and yet, I feel so, alienated because so few come from the type of background I did, and don't seem to care to really learn about it and would rather virtue signal.
So, I've been wondering for a while, do the same issues exist at Ivy League schools? Do you all deal with issues where the classes are hard but all of the resources meant to help students tend to be bogged down / unusable because there aren't enough staff to help the number of students that need those resources? I wanted to kinda survey different ivies about this. Thank you in advance for sharing your opinion.
We recently featured a student from Brown on our podcast, MFA Writers. The show is meant to be a resource for prospective applicants, as well as highlight emerging writers. There's a lot of opaqueness around the MFA application process and we aim to provide greater information and transparency. The goal is to provide an opportunity to hear from real creative writing students about their experiences in their programs.
If you're interested, MFA Writers is free and available on all major podcasting platforms (and some minor ones, too). You're always welcome to reach out to us with feedback or program requests, as well. We want this to be an informative and useful resource for emerging writers.
To say that Brown is my dream school is an understatement. I am IN LOVE with that school and tbh I don't see myself going anywhere else (Ik that is a very toxic mindset to have but its my truth). If anyone goes to Brown currently can you give me some advice on how to get create a successful app? Essays, video portfolios, etc. I want all the insider tips and tricks. Thank you so much in advance.
