A. Tell us about the academic areas that interest you most and your reasons for applying to Brown.
I'm a girl with the world's interest in hand. I am pursuing an education of social sciences to explore the global economic world and its international affairs. High school has given me the first look into liberal arts, sciences, and many other courses, but I've found my niche in the social sciences, particularly economics and international relations. I plan on studying the basics of what holds nations together financially as well as culturally. I found my passion first inside, then outside of the classroom and I want to nurture my understanding of social sciences at Brown University.
I plan to venture into economics because it's one field that remarkably combines both practical and theoretical schools of thought. I find myself drawn toward Brown's own dedication to mix the practical and theoretical elements through its 'collaborative university-college model' that revolves around tolerant course scheduling and grading system. I'm also determined to see what Brown's business programs has to offer and see firsthand how I can utilize my ideas to contribute to the Brown experience. An aspiring Brown Bear, I am a girl who'll make most of her experience by launching a Big Brothers/Sisters Academic Based Community service (ABC) to strengthen the already prominent community service Brown programs, debating on the perspectives of the summer reading, and browsing the halls of the Watson Institute of International studies looking for what life has to offer. Brown grants its students the power of choice, whether it is religion or the grading system, and I choose Brown to help me prepare making decisions for my future in the business world.
B. How did you become interested in Brown?
I first became familiar with Brown's name through the key chain my brother got for me after his 2003 summer program at Brown. I was in middle school and the stories and pictures of his encounter with the beautiful campus and its academic surroundings sparked my interest. Over the years, I requested brochures from Brown in an attempt to see if it was the place for me. Making my frequent trips to my mailbox, I fell in love with Brown, its academic environment, its opinionated students, and its passionate faculty. Brown's establishment of the Watson Institute of International Studies shows the university's attention and support for students with my similar interests. Brown knew how to market itself, and if I plan to go into the business field fully prepared, I will need to learn from the best.

You did a great job of answering the questions. I found limited mistakes - just with commas. Great job!
