Emma Watson to attend Brown University in the fall

It’s been confirmed that Harry Potter starlet, Emma Watson, will be attending Brown University in the fall.

Watson, who plays Hermomine in the Harry Potter movies has long said she would be attending college in the U.S., and it was speculated that she would be attending Brown University. No one knew for sure until her co-star, Daniel Radcliffe unwittingly confirmed it a few weeks ago during an interview, but Watson finally publicly stated her choice in an interview with Paste magazine:

“I am [going to university this fall] – to Brown, which is an Ivy League establishment in the U.S.A. I’ve got a place there to read literature.”

Brown University is an Ivy League school in Providence, RI. According to their about page:

“Approximately 5,900 students are enrolled in the Undergraduate College, 1,500 in the Graduate School and 340 in the Medical School. These students represent all 50 states and many foreign countries. For 2010, more than 18,000 applicants applied for 1,450 places in the freshman class. All undergraduates were admitted under a need-blind admission policy.”
