A Unique Backup Plan: From Brown to NYU Abu Dhabi (Zhong Chen)

Submitted Apr 2023

I'd initially applied for the PSC and MOE scholarships as my first choice and wanted to use them to go to Brown, but the scholarship boards rejected me. NYUAD was essentially one of my backup plans and it felt sad / scary to give up the seemingly more prestigious option of an Ivy League school like Brown, but it worked out very well and I couldn't be happier with how my life turned out.
