(undergrad) Add info Add info 2 According to the 2018–2019 Common Data Set, Brandeis considers the following criteria “very important”: -Middle 50% SAT: 1390-1500 -Middle 50% ACT: 30-33 -There's no minimum GPA for admission to Brandeis, but more than three-quarters of our accepted students graduate in the top 20% of their high school class. -SAT (25-75 Percentile): 1390-1500 Evidence-based Reading and Writing: 670-750 Math: 700-780 -100 (TOEFL iBT) -627 (TOEFL ITP Plus for China Solution) -600 (TOEFL Revised Paper-delivered Test) -130 (Duolingo English Test) -7 (IELTS Academic Test) -68 (PTE Academic Test) Brandeis University faced a financial collapse in 2009, with a projected deficit of $79m over the next six years, according to an interview with the institution’s chief operating officer, Peter French. This led to the controversial sale of the Rose Art Museum and its collection, which had been valued at $350m in 2007. Michael Rush, the museum’s director, was critical of the decision. A number of lawyers on the museum’s board and the Massachusetts Attorney General’s office investigated whether the sale breached agreements between the university and donors. The Rose had been recognised for its collection of modern and contemporary art. Brandeis University in Massachusetts has been criticized after its "Oppressive-Words List" was made public. The list, created by students and published by the school’s Prevention, Advocacy and Resource Center, prohibits the use of certain words and phrases to prevent those who have "experienced violence" from being further hurt. The banned words include "picnic," as it is associated with anti-black lynchings in the South, and "trigger warning," as the word "trigger" might evoke violence. Although the list is not mandatory, Brandeis has been criticized for lending its authority to a thought-stifling mechanism. The list has been described as a tragic turn of events for a school named after Supreme Court Justice Louis Brandeis, who was an ardent free-speech champion. -Rigor of secondary school record -Class rank -Academic GPA -Character/personal qualities "Important" -Application Essay -Recommendation(s) -Extracurricular activities -Talent/ability "Considered" -Standardized test scores (currently test-optional) -Interview -First generation -Alumni/ae relation -Geographical residence -State residency -Religious affiliation/commitment -Racial/ethnic status -Volunteer work -Work experience -Level of applicant’s interest Why Bradeis? 1. Academics and small class size -Undergrad size: 3500 -The small class sizes enable a more personalized experience (e.g. office time etc/close knit, quiet environment, etc.) 2. Ranking/Reputation -As a top #50 US university, its current ranking in the 2022-2023 edition of Best Colleges is #44 (U.S News) -Based of anectotal evidence, it's really well-known in the NE region, meaning that you won't have trouble finding intern or job after graduation. 3. Humanities-oriented private research university -Tons of opportunities for research as an undergrad -Tons of social justice initiatives/themes Grad School Why not Brandeis? Graduate School of Arts and Sciences (Check out the requirements of any individual program here: GRE req GPA req 1. Limited class selection 2. Students were unsupported in finding jobs/internships (in contrast with big unis) 3. Social life (or the lack of it) 4.They also don't offer engineering at all (although I think they are planning to add engineering science with the goal of ABET accreditation). 5.Its undergrad body is like 40%-50% Jewish; it has a specific demographic that it attracts, and that demographic is very familiar with Brandeis. 6.The campus is not very attractive and it’s in a boring suburb (to be fair Waltham is not bad and it's been getting fancier. There are also a lot of transportation options for both Waltham and Boston, so it's super easy to find something that works for you. ) -The GRE is required if you have not earned or will not earn a degree from an accredited institution of higher education in the United States before enrolling at Brandeis. -On average, students present a 160 GRE Verbal and 165 GRE Quantitative score. -There are no GPA or standardized test score

Not content to be a mere figurehead, by 1915 Brandeis became Zionism’s leading public spokesman in America. Personal Life Notable Cases -Brandeis spent much of his career crusading against monopolies and large corporations, and advocating for free speech - Became known as "the people's attorney" and refused payment for his services - Graduated high school at age 14 - Entered Harvard Law school in 1875 - Graduated as valedictorian at age 20 Louis Brandeis 1865-1941 Education - Born in Kentucky, 1856 - Parents: Adolph & Fredrika Brandeis - Both Jewish - Immigrated from Bohemia - Was youngest of four children - Parents encouraged and valued education and culture Roots - Brandeis helped save the Boston subway system and break up the New Haven Railroad monopoly - He represented New England Policy-Holders’ Protective Committee in a suit that helped establish a new form of savings-bank life insurance -His Jewish involvement began when he learned, in 1910, that his uncle, Louis Dembitz, whom he highly admired and for whom he was named, had been a Zionist. - Brandeis read everything he could find on Zionism. His desire to help Eastern European Jewry find a safe haven in Palestine was heightened by his contact in 1910 with Russian immigrant garment workers, whom he met while mediating a strike. He saw in these Jews a democratic spirit and idealism he had not expected. Supreme Court Notable Cases -1891, Brandeis married Alice Goldmark, -He had two daughters. -He became a Zionist, believing that establishing a Jewish homeland was key to combating anti-Semitism. Louis Brandeis died on October 5, 1941. Brandeis University is named in his honor. -1916, President Wilson nominated Brandeis to the Supreme Court - Faced bitter opposition from anti-Semites and supporters of big business, he was confirmed, and became the first Jew to sit on the Supreme Court. - Brandeis opposed unlimited governmental power and an interpretation of "individual liberty" that allowed a few people to control economic actualities that affected the public at large. Supreme Court Private Practice - Brandeis was offered a position in President Woodrow Wilson’s cabinet in 1913, but he declined - In 1914, he published "Other People's Money and How the Bankers Use It," in which he attacked monopolies and the ways investment bankers controlled American industry. American Zionism con't - Spent several years defending the constitutionality of state laws that set limits on the number of hours or types of conditions in which a worker could work - In Muller v. Oregon, he wrote what is known as the "Brandeis Brief," in which supporting evidence including historical, sociological and scientific data was marshaled to support the case. American Zionism
