Emma Watson: Brown University, Here I Come!

Emma Watson: Brown University, Here I Come!

Emma Watson will be attending Brown University this fall, confirms Paste Magazine.

The 19-year-old British actress reveals, “I am [off] to Brown, which is an Ivy League establishment in the U.S.A. I’ve got a place there to read literature. I hope to do quite well with my A Levels and they’ve provisionally accepted me, so I’m off to study.” (Emma must have been interviewed awhile ago as she scored seven A’s and three A* at GCSE level.)

Originally, Emma wanted to keep her choice of college a secret but she must have changed her mind after costar Daniel Radcliffe spilled the beans.

Emma also admitted that her fellow students are going to recognize her. She shared, “That’s inevitable, I suppose, some of them must have seen the films over the years. But I do hope that it will be only a short time before I am known as ‘Emma Watson, the student from the U.K.’ rather than ‘Emma Watson who starred in those Harry Potter films.’”

    a levels you do 2 years after gcses’ so she may have only just done them and therefor waiting for her resukts, universitys do not base entrancee on gcse. for a levels you do 3 subjects.

    She sounds stuck up and totally full of herself … “an Ivy League establishment”??? Duh, Emma! We know that!

    Ooops, I forgot she’s British. This all makes sense now.

    Actually, the interview could have been very recent because she still doesn’t know what she got in her A Levels – those results are announced in August. The GCSE grades are from exams taken 2 years ago.

    @john:

    If you look at comments from recent articles on Emma Watson, you’ll see that for people here, the universities in the Ivy League need clarifying – so many people, including Americans, got it wrong. They were saying Berkeley and Stanford were Ivy Leagues…

    I call bullsh*t on this one. She already had her A-Level results before she was spotted looking round all Harvard and Columbia.

    GCSE and A Levels are completely different. A Levels are what you do after your GCSE, you only take a Maximum of four Courses for your A- Levels.

    good from u emma, i was still hoping u would come 2 harvard tho
    i kinda think she’s gonna be like natalie portman in the education thing
    gonna be doing movies and going 2 school at the same thing, which i would think is pretty distracting as natalie has said

    Congrats to her. It’s always great to here of entertainers with a moderate IQ. However, in her case, very impressive!

    My parents think that the only reason she got accepted is because she’s rich and famous. I doubt she would’ve been able to attend an Ivy League if it weren’t for her fame.

    I hate to break it to you guys, but there are a TON of students who are smarter than her who just CANNOT get into Ivy Leagues because they’re not rich enough.

    My best friend’s older brother got accepted to Princeton, but unfortunately his family’s not that “rich” and he didn’t get a scholarship. He went to Penn State instead.

    this is a load of rubbish! emma did not do that badly in her GCSE’s she got 8 A*s and 2 A’s!
    She also already has her A-level results scoring 4 A’s (which is the highest you can achieve currently)
    Also all british magazines say she is going to columbia so i believe this post is fairly inaccurate!

    @molly:

    This is true. the interview that it’s from is definitely from her. Plus like Just Jared said Daniel already spilled the beans and so did David Heyman so Emma probably just decided to release it now.

    She scored the highest you could score coming out of her high school, or whatever it’s called in Britain. Anything before universities here in America is infamously shi**y by a majority. I’m sorry you’re mad for your bro, but come on. I’m sure you two also believe 100% of black people, whether they graduate as valedictorian from prestigious schools, get in by affirmative action.

    ^Oh and I forgot, but women too, but people commonly don’t consider that white women benefit more from it than blacks anyway.

    She said that if she was going to release her college decision choice she would do so first on her official website….. and there’s no release on her website…. plus you’d think this article would be all over the web and Emma’s representative would have confirmed it. Sounds bsed.
