Brown is pretty much the dream fo me but as usual there is a catch. Im an international student. Im currently doing my A Levels. 

 My final grades are slated to be excellent and I have the right extra currics and Im fairly certain I can write a decent essay. While my transcripts up to grade 11 are stellar, my final two years show poor terms grades. Does this completely nix my chances of admission?

 Can a good SAT score and good end results, paired with essays that show my passion outweigh the negative set backs of a despicable term report? If I cite my genuine personal problems will I sound like a brown noser [ pardon the pun] or just someone who honestly had a tough time and it affected their grades? Beign a student from across the globe means Im already disadvantaged for a spot, can you tell me how much this will adversely affect my chances?

 Any response will be welcome. Thank you. And for those of you who are already there, I have to ask-Is the campus pretty? As an architects daughter I simply must know.

It sounds like you've done some research about Brown, but please check out the Admissions website. In the past couple of years, the Office of Admissions has really revamped their portion of the Brown website and there are a huge number of amazing things you can find - there's a virtual tour of campus (with 360 degree views), there are undergraduates who are online and chat real-time and also via email, and some very good informational packages available.
