Does Brown University use the Common App?

Hi guys, starting to feel the pressure with college apps approaching. Can someone confirm whether Brown University accepts applications through the Common App? Wanna know if I can include them on my one-stop application shop or if I need to prepare separately.

Hey there! Absolutely, Brown University does indeed accept applications through the Common Application system. Just remember that while the main part of the Common App (essay, family history, and so on) will be the same for all the colleges you're applying to, Brown has its own supplemental essay questions that you'll need to complete as part of their application process. You can get a head start on brainstorming your responses to those questions by checking out CollegeVine's Brown-specific essay breakdown here: https://blog.collegevine.com/how-to-write-the-brown-university-and-plme-essays

If you're feeling confused about what exactly you'll need to submit, don’t hesitate to reach out to your school counselor, or to Brown's admissions office directly—that’s what they're there for! Good luck with your application to Brown!
