What impressed you positively?

"Everything! The school has such a great atmosphere. The session with the 4th year students is great - it isn't anything to worry about at all. They are all extremely friendly and gave such unique perspectives on the school. They were the ones that really sold me on the school. Besides having a great reputation, Hopkins has so much to offer. The facilities are amazing, and the opportunities for research, community service, international experiences are endless. The students I met all seemed incredibly intelligent and very happy at Hopkins. The environment seemed very noncompetitive - the students seemed more interested in learning than competing. Also, Hopkins has a great school of public health." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"The only part I didn't like is that the area around campus is very unsafe." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"That Hopkins has moved from a letter grade system to Honors/HP/P/F. Also, that there is no formal MD/MPH dual degree program, but it is still possible to pursue both degrees while at Hopkins." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"My faculty interview was great - very conversational. It's open-file, and my interviewer really took the time to get to know me and what motivates me. She also told me a lot about the school, the MD program at Hopkins, and what life in Baltimore is like. The 4th yr student interview is short - only about 15 minutes. It's closed-file and very laid-back. Most of the time is spent telling your interviewer about yourself and what you have done during college, etc. The time spent with the 4th yrs is great - it's really nothing to worry about. They are awesome people who are interested in getting to know you and telling you all about Hopkins." Report Response
