    I’m going to take this a whole different direction than you may have anticipated. If you are going to be a teacher consider the wages you are likely to earn and compare that to the cost of your college loans. If you get a lot of funding then go for it. However, if you or your parents have to foot the bill ask yourself if the “juice is worth the squeeze”. You can go to a State university, get certified to teach with your BA and it will be a lot cheaper to do so. If you have good interview skills, and a good GPA public school administrators won’t care that you went to a State college. If when you said teacher, you were referring to a college professor, then going to Brown would matter more. How much a teacher earns is based on where they live, even down to the county (let alone the state). I’d figure out where you want to live, how much teachers there earn, and go from there.

    I think you should get accepted considering, but only problem, small but yes, might be rank issues. top 5% would have definitely helped. Also, try to get good teacher recommendations — Don’t forget that. Do not expect any university scholarships though, because it’s like for 2400s and valedictorians. You have a good academic profile, regarding the classes you are taking, and considering that your SAT scores would increase. And, i hope you mainly have As in your AP classes, that is important.
