Question: I am a rising senior in high school in the class of 2010. I recently visited Brown University and fell IN LOVE. If anyone can tell me if I have a chance there, I would greatly appreciate it! And if you can, please recommend any other schools that might be a better fit. Here are my stats: Academic -GPA: 4.0 (weighted 4.480) -Class rank: 6th out of 370 -SAT: 2080 (CR-700, M-680, W-680) -ACT: 32 -Course Load: Full IB student (6 IB courses plus TOK, an extended essay, and community service) Extracurricular -Interact Club (I was the secretary in 2007-08 and the President 2008-09 and 2009-10) -Beta Club -NHS (Treasurer for 2009-10) -French Club -Foreign Language Club (started the club and was later the President in 2007-08) -Member of a prestigious local dance company throughout high school(6-14 hours per week) -Started a non-profit business selling t-shirts to raise money for established charities (Yes, it is a real business with a tax ID # and bank account) Honors -Identified as a top student in the state of Georgia -Asked to be a member of the pre-professional division of a local dance company (2006-07 and 2007-08) -Recognized as a Rotary Student of the Month 3 times -Recipient of a Rotary Scholarship -Top Ten in my class Other activities: -Mission trip to Ghana (2007) -Foreign Exchange Student to Switzerland to speak French (summer of 2008) -Community Service trip to a Conservation Base in Peru (summer of 2009) -Summer program at Brown University for Leadership (summer of 2009) Thank you for your help! I'm ranked 6th with a 4.0 because of the classes I take. Some classes at my school carry more weight than others such as high level languages or high level math. It all depends on how long you have been in the school system to gather up those credits and I transferred in freshman year so I don't have as many as some students.

You are fairly likely to get in, (i would say 50/50 shot) so don't put all your eggs in one basket. Also, what kind of essays are you planning on writing? You have an excellent resume, but what really puts candidates over the top is not lists of activities, but an essay that expresses who they are, what they want out of an education at that school. Talk about a particular program Brown has that you can't get anywhere else. Show them your personality. Good luck! edit: i just looked up their stats: Overall acceptance rate: 13.3% SAT score (25/75 percentile) 2010-2290 So they reject 87% of the people who apply so don't get your hopes too high, but your SATs are in their range.

Google Salon Hair Dye Lawsuits. About 336,000 results (0.17 seconds) Dec. 2011 When it comes to hair care treatments, product use or visits to a salon or spa, the consumer must take responsibility to do their homework and be aware of all the risks involved. Vanessa Minnillo Lachey: "I dated a guy once who wanted me to have blonde hair. Clearly, he was the wrong guy for me! I went to a lady who bleached my hair and it literally fell out. So, not only did I go back to my natural hair, I broke up with the guy!" Style meets chemistry meets biology: We're talking hair coloring. Playing with chemicals is not like playing with clothes, or doing a manicure, there are penalties for playing chemicals in the lab. Even hair color experts at the salon are not rocket scientists, they do a bang up dye jobs to their clients or their own hair. Example: "My hair is right about armpit length as it is, but I've severely damaged it by bleaching it all at once. As a student of cosmetology myself, I would have to say that it was probably one of the worst mistakes I could have ever made." Another example: ok i did my hair yesterday i DIDN'T bleach it ,but im not sure what its called but she took the color out of my hair and then dies it a blond color and my head was on fire it killed me so after that i hated my hair color so i colored it my self a darker color, it looked so ugly and it burned me again it rully hrt so after i washed it my mom checked it for me and found small spots of blood all over my top scalp like over 20 of em now im scared and don't know why its there is it from the color am i sick and something is wrong ?? Chemicals can enter the body through the skin. Google: Teen 'feared she would die' after reaction to hair dye The allergic reaction was caused by a well-known brand of semi-permanent hair dye Chloe used to turn her hair black for a Hallowe’en party. . . . . called for beauty bosses to ban hair dye chemical PPD (para-phenylenediamine) from the shelves. 11-04-11 The chemical is not new and is present in a number of brands of dark hair colours, acting to help adhere the dye to the hair so that it doesn't wash out. It’s made from coal tar and is used in both permanent and semi-permanent hair colours. It’s well-known to be a cause of serious allergic reactions -- including something called contact dermatitis which can lead to rashes, blisters, and open sores. PPD is sometimes added to black henna tattoos and that using them is not safe. Allergic reactions usually begin within two to 10 days following application. One bad reaction can lead to sensitivities to other products such as hair dye, sunblock and some types of clothing dyes. Oftentimes, it's using the product a second or third time. Skin specialist Najjia Ashraf reveals that there are barely any dyes that don’t contain this toxin; even the ones who claim they don’t, are not being honest. “Big brands often escape the blame by suggesting they are ammonia-free. However, ammonia and PPD are two very different things and PPD is present in nearly every dye because it is what gives off the colour,” she explains. Google: A 38-year old mother left in a coma after using hair dye. SHE DYED HER HAIR MANY TIMES BEFORE, USING THE SAME BRAND. The British woman who went into coma after a reaction to hair dye has died after a year. Updated 11-25-12. The woman suffered a heart failure, struggled for breath and became unconsciousness. Her family blamed paraphenylenediamine, a chemical found in hair colour. Her family has now called for paraphenylenediamine to be banned from home dye kits. In 2000, a 38-year-old Indian-origin woman from Birmingham, Narinder Devi, died after an allergic reaction to hair dye. A WOMAN was temporarily blinded when her face swelled up "like a football" following what she told was a severe reaction to hair dye. Carmen Rowe, 25, from Swansea was hospitalised for three days after using the Clairol 'Nice n' Easy' natural black colour. She said: "I lost my job, all for the sake of a glamorous hairstyle. I just want to warn parents what could happen." She claimed she carried out a skin test 48 hours before using the dye without a problem and has been colouring her hair since she was 13. March 3, 2012. Example of one who's hair is falling and stopped growing from YA!: "my hair had been bleached many times and can't grow past a certain length its also falling out . i stopped bleaching it. i just need to add lenght! but if i can stop it from falling out..that be great too" Google: January Jones: "My Hair Is Falling Out In Clumps" 1-28-13 To quote Joni Mitchell, "you don't know what you got till your thick hair is gone."

I went to Cornell that is a satisfactory institution. It's very colossal regardless that, so that you can not be any person who should be a colossal fish in a small pond. Ithaca is particularly an excessively high-quality position to visit institution. That being mentioned, I normally could have long gone to Brown over Cornell if I received in there. Apply to all three, see in which you get in, and talk over with the campuses. If you are fortunate ample to get into multiple, you can not particularly cross fallacious with whichever of the three you opt for. Good good fortune!

Your grades, classes and extracurriculars are definitely on par with Brown's standards, but your SAT is on the low side for any Ivy League school. Ivy League schools receive so many applications that the 10% or so they do admit are the complete package, diverse, interesting kids, with spectacular grades, extracurriculars and SAT scores. If you can try and raise our SAT scores a 2150+ would make your application even more impressive.

Congratulations, you have a very good GPA & SAT score. Since you have already participated in extracurricular activities, it gives you additional points to gain admission into Brown University. I know a lot of students that thought they wanted to go to their dream school, but when they got in and went to that school, they were really disappointed. So make sure you want to go to Brown University finally. You can get information about the academic requirements here: and reviews of Brown University by actual students here:

Are you kidding me? With those kind of credentials you should be able to get a free ride on your academic achievements alone. Any college in the country would be nuts to turn you down. If you have your heart set on Brown then by all means go for it but if you can't get in, trust me you'll have no problem with another college. If Brown doesn't accept you its not the end of the world, life goes on don't sweat it.

Jocosa Originally Answered: What's it like in the University of Iowa?
Yes, UIowa has an outstanding writing program - The Writers' Workshop" . It is a 2-yr graduate program that awards a MFA degree upon completion of a creative thesis. Many noted, successful, and award-winning writers have emerged from that program. Earthquakes? not a one in my memory. (who on earth is telling you this stuff?) Crazy stuff? well --- it's a college town after all! You're wise to not believe someone's assessment of a place that they've never even visited. Iowa City is a medium-sized midwest city. U Iowa is a large public university. If large universities are your bag, you'll probably like this one. If you don't own a warm parka, include one in your college budget.
