Every year, sometime in mid-April, nearly 3,000 students log on with nervous excitement and sign off in shock and horror. The Brown Admitted Student Facebook group is a right of passage for prospective College Hill-dwellers, a frightening but ultimately misleading first glimpse at your classmates. These groups are, for the first few months, home to excruciating showmanship, awkward smalltalk, and strange requests. For posterity and humor’s sake, Accepted! 2017 has collected some of the funniest and most cringe-worthy posts from admitted students groups across the country. Check out the submissions culled from Brown’s Class of 2017 group. Some of these might look familiar…
Ratty Vs. V-Dub, 12/5
Ratty: Grilled Chicken Alfredo Sandwich, Roasted Broccoli Rabe, Shepherd’s Pie
V-Dub: Spicy Pepper Pulled Chicken, BBQ Beef Sandwich, Broccoli Salsa Alfredo, Spicy French Fries
Advantage: V-Dub. If it's gonna be broccoli, we prefer salsa alfredo to plain old roasted rabe.
