BROWN ESSAY QUESTIONS

1. Please briefly elaborate on one of your extracurricular activities or work experiences. (150 word limit)
2. Why are you drawn to the area(s) of study you indicated in our Member Section, 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. (150 word limit)
3. Why Brown? (200 word limit)
4. Tell us where you have lived - and for how long - since you were born; whether you've always lived in the same place, or perhaps in a variety of places. (100 word limit)
5. We all exist within communities or groups of various sizes, origins, and purposes; pick one and tell us why it is important to you, and how it has shaped you. (150 word limit)

For the Engineering major
1. The School of Engineering offers 9 concentration options, including Sc.B. degrees in Biomedical Engineering, Chemical & Biochemical Engineering, Computer Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Environmental Engineering, Materials Engineering, and Mechanical Engineering, as well as an A.B. degree in Engineering, and a joint program with the Department of Physics leading to an Sc.B. degree in Engineering and Physics. Since there is a common core curriculum within Engineering, students need not select a specific area until their junior year. We are curious to know, however, if any particular program within Engineering presently appeals to you. (Please limit your total response to 350 words.)

2. What experiences and/or courses beyond school work have broadened your interest in Engineering? (Please limit your total response to 350 words.)

For the Applied Mathematics, Chemistry, Computer Science, Geology, Mathematics or Physics major
1. Tell us about a skill or concept related to your anticipated area of study, that you found challenging and rewarding to learn. (Please limit your total response to 350 words.)
