School Specific Essays

Discuss an accomplishment, event, or realization that sparked a period of personal growth and a new understanding of yourself or others.
On September 20, 2014, a friend told me a secret that had haunted her since she was in the seventh grade. We first met in physics class earlier that month, and developed an immediate connection.

Supplemental Essay: Intellectual interest
150 Words
Why are you drawn to the area(s) of study you indicated earlier in this application? If you are "undecided" or not sure which Brown concentrations match your interests, consider describing more generally the academic topics or modes of thought that engage you currently.

I have lived in two different towns in Massachusetts since I was born. Though seemingly similar, each place I have lived has had a profound impact on my life. My first residence was in Needham in a suburban neighborhood, and I lived there until I was 10 years old. I spent most of my childhood in Needham alongside neighbors of similar ages developing many friendships. In 5th grade, I moved to Dover, the rural town adjacent to Needham, where I still...
