At 5 p.m. today, Brown sent acceptance letters to 1,970 potential Brunonians, making a total of 2,580 offers of admission alongside this fall’s early-accepted students. These lucky individuals were selected from the third largest pool of applicants in university history; Brown received 30,397 applications, and had the lowest recorded acceptance rate of 8.5 percent.
Our admitted students hail from all 50 states and 85 different countries, with 45 percent of applicants identifying as African American, Latino, Native American, or Asian American. The top ten intended concentrations for our potential future classmates are Engineering, Biology, Computer Science, Biochemistry, International Relations, Economics, Political Science, English, and History; only the latter two are new additions from the Class of 2018. You can find more gossip stats on the very impressive acceptees here.
At 5:00 p.m. today, decisions for the 3,016 early applicants to Brown became available on the Brown website. Commence the stalking of current high school seniors’ Facebooks!
To the new members of the Class of 2019, we’d love to invite you to get to know us so you can learn more about life at Brown. We can’t wait to see you in the fall. The most incredible four years await you.
All our love,
The Hogwarts Express Amtraks, buses, cars, and bicycles (shout out to the local kids) are arriving — ADOCH has begun! There will be hordes of high school seniors on campus for the next few days deciding whether or not to make Brunonia their home for the next four years. Hosts, show your pre-frosh a good time (though not too good a time), and sell your school as best as you can.
To the pre-frosh: Welcome. Meet BlogDailyHerald. We’re the site that will tell you who the 15 “hottest” (literally) among you are, kick conservative correspondents’ asses, console those among you that didn’t get in early, and show you everything you learned in your first year, all for you. In short, we’re your one-stop shop for everything you need to know — and a lot of things you would never, ever, EVER need to know — about Brown and the community in which you’ll be living. We really, sincerely hope that each and every one of you decides to choose this school for your college experience. Keep reading our site for more information about Brown as the school year wraps up!
PS – We’ll be at the ADOCH activities fair tomorrow evening. Come say hi!
