I've heard that a lot of people don't like this school and compared to the other Ivys, its reputation definitely isn't too great. Can someone tell me why?

Some people regard Brown as a school for flakes and "off-beat" kids, mostly because they have no core curriculum or core requirements. You can essentially take any classes you want, regardless of whether they are related to each other.

It's probably 4 semesters -- 2 years

But I agree. I think it would be awesome to take only what you want!!

Brown students are happy students. we like how the system works here. the open curriculum, the number one reason why people decide to attend Brown, rocks!!! people here are very nice and friendly. i guess you could say that there are some people who can be considered as "flakes," but the truth is many people here take advantage of the open curriculum to get a well-rounded education. Im an engineering major (also a premed) and im planning to take classes in Egyptology and in Classics. now tell me, how often do you meet an engineer who knows how to speak latin and read hieroglyphics?
Fact: Brown admits offbeat geniuses.
its reputation may not be as great as that of harvard's or princeton's or yale's; however, brown is known for the success of its graduates. brown sends a lot of its students to well-known graduate schools.
