    I think that point that you could try making is that "Brown is the perfect school...for YOU".
    Dad II - ... ... I'm not too sure what you are trying to say, ... ...

    I understand. After all, you only got into Brown. :)






    I am trying to say that "Brown is your only option at this time", so work on what you can control and forget about what others say.

    OP - You're not alone. I'm an intl student (Asian) and people have been giving me crap for 'only' getting into Hopkins, for turning down Northwestern, for getting rejected from Stanford and UC Berkeley. I'm perfectly happy with my school since I'm a BME, and Hopkins has always been my first love, but no one would understand. Even when I stop arguing with them, they just keep challenging my feelings and shoving how Berkeley, UCLA, NU, Stanford, HYPMC, etc etc are better. On better days, they just stare at me in confusion, ha ha. Learn to ignore them. Asians gotta be Asians, I guess.

    (Brown is amazing, btw :) )

    I’m curious about OP’s country and school. Quite an achievement to place five students from the same graduating class in Ivies.

    That's a veiled skepticism of the OP, isn't it? Not nice.

    and a few of my peers have made some not-so-pleasant comments about Brown (especially making use of the pot-smoking hippie stereotype and the "joke of the Ivy League").

    How many of them could even gain admission to Brown?
    Anyways everyone knows the joke of the Ivy league is Cornell!

    the joke of the Ivy league

    Isn't that like being the least attractive supermodel or dumbest Nobel Prize winner?*



    *Not counting those bogus Peace Prizes, which aren't real Nobels.

    A couple weeks ago, we attended a dinner for scholarship recipients, they announced the colleges the students chose. One young lady turned down Stanford to go to Brown. Just another person who thinks it's a good school ;)

    Pizzagirl, I’m sorry you take it that way. I am indeed curious which Asian school is churning out a number of Ivy League admits.

    I think it's just sad that these unusually intelligent and talented young students aren't celebrated for all they've accomplished instead of having to defend their decision.
