How many people interviewed you?


What was the style of the interview?


What was the most interesting question?

"Pretty standard stuff. The faculty interviewer had very pointed questions about my file and the student interview is closed file and was much more general." Report Response | I was asked this question too

What was the most difficult question?

"No real whammies." Report Response | I was asked this question too

How did you prepare for the interview?

"Relaxed. Reread everything I've written during this process. Read up on Hopkins." Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"Students did seem happy. Great opportunities/flexibility to pursue additional degrees, travel and research." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"I felt there was just a general lack of enthusiasm/energy to the day. The facilities (at the least the pre-clinical teaching building) is old and dark. I left wondering what the big deal is about Hopkins, because I was not very impressed. I was also negatively impressed and suspicious when I heard two different students tell the exact same anecdote to try to convince us that the atmosphere is not as competitive as rumor would have it. Seems like it came out of some handbook. Reed hall is not a nice place at all. Think cinder block and shared bathrooms. Also, Hopkins does not have merit-based aid." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"All of the things I discussed above." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Overall, I left feeling like I must have missed something, because I SHOULD have liked it, right? I recommend stopping by the new public health building. It has great study spaces and is really quite nice." Report Response
