Ivy League Profile: Brown University
Nestled in Providence, Rhode Island and founded in 1764, Brown University has offered a space for students and faculty to collaborate “to address the defining challenges of a complex and changing world” for the past two and a half centuries. A leading Ivy League research university, Brown has six libraries and a 6:1 student to faculty ratio. There are presently 7,125 undergraduates enrolled on campus, who have the choice of over 80 undergrad concentrations and over 2000 courses each year. Like other Ivy League schools, Brown admits only a small portion of applicants: they received 50,649 applications to the undergraduate Class of 2026 and accepted a mere 5% of all applicants (down from 9% in 2016). The seventh-oldest institution of higher education in the United States has decided to become test-optional for the 2022-2023 academic year only.
The Ivy Dean has helped dozens of students gain acceptance to Brown Universityover the past ten years. As a professional company with two expert college admissions counsellors – President Drusilla Blackman, who formerly served as Dean of Undergraduate Admissions at Columbia University and Dean of Graduate Admissions at Harvard University, and Christian Rabin – we have an in-depth understanding of how campus admissions officers decide which students to admit, waitlist and reject. Our experienced and dedicated counselors guide students and their families through every step of Brown’s admissions process, providing special assistance with application essays given their increased importance in the absence of standardized testing requirements.
