I had an amazing, life changing experience at Johns Hopkins University. This school has opportunities that you would not be able to get at most other schools. Getting involved in neuroscience research was as easy as sending an email -- having a Hopkins connection really goes a long way. The students are smart and interesting, and I've had some amazing intellectual conversations with so many of them. The environment is definitely hard working and at times self-deprecating, but I appreciate the humble nature of the school. For being a top 10 university, the students are surprisingly not pretentious. And for the millionth time, NOT competitive! Yes they are incredibly hardworking, but there is not that stereotypical "cutthroat" environment you hear so much about. Overall I had an awesome experience and would recommend anybody interested to definitely apply!
Not bad overall.
There are many things to love and many things to want to improve at the school, however, for me and everyone else at Johns Hopkins University, this is the perfect place to be.
The community and the academics are so important and strong, even if you feel like there isn't a place for you on campus, other people who feel the same way or don't would find you and make you feel at home. There are so many clubs on campus because everyone is passionate about something, whether it comes to the arts, politics, comedy, or just inner-tubing, there is going to be someone else in the school that shares the same interest, leading to a formation of a club. The school has the resources and the confidence to let almost any appropriate club to exist because they understand that curiosity and fun are at the core of any academics. The majority of the community does not come from the Baltimore area, and many are not even from the United States, yet, everyone feels at home when they're here.
While our school is sorely lacking because the sports teams, besides lacrosse, are in D3; high pressure academics; and complicated politics in the surrounding region; the school and the community of Baltimore County work together to make the school and the county a pleasant place to work, study, and play. If it comes to a cause that the community cares deeply about everyone will join together in spirit or in person to support a cause. If someone needs help with their homework or just needs an alternative explanation for a complex physics question, there is going to be someone right next door who can help or knows someone who can and is willing to help. So despite the lack of a Hollywood College experience, the academics and the ideology of the students bring us all together into a community of cooperation.
It is true that academics are cut-throat and challenging, however, everyone is experiencing the same amount of pressure and the same amount of work. We work because the challenge and the work stimulates us. The lack of a COMMON CORE is liberating because it is just another example of how curiosity and fun are at the core of academics. We are all encouraged to break barriers and pursue our interests, not the interests of an admissions officer or a future boss. Those things come with time and will come from pure curiosity.
While our school is far from perfect, and our mascot, the blue-jay, is creatively named Jay, we take pride in our academics and community. The opportunities are endless as long as we aim towards a goal that we set for ourselves, knowing that we will always have a nest waiting for us when we are in trouble or when we want to give back to the community that helped us reach that point.
I love everything about it. There isn't a school that I'd rather go to! Hopkins is a home away from home.
The fall 2020 acceptance rate for Johns Hopkins University is 12%. That means, out of _____ applications received in 2020 , _____ students were offered admission. The number of males who applied was _____ vs the number of females which was _____.
Ironically, I think about this question all the time and I'm fairly certain the adivce I would give myself would be to avoid "senioritis" at all costs. Instead of slacking off my senior year by being an office aid and taking only the two or three classes that I neded in order to graduate, I now realize how beneficial it would have been for me to take classes that would have challenged me to continue working hard. If I had took a heavier course load during my final year of high school, then perhaps I would have done better in my first semester of college.
Very nice people that are open as long as you are.
Students are serious about their studies and will understand if you need to work instead of going out. At the same time, most students are social, so it's not like everyone is always studying. I found this balance of work and play to be satisfying.
Probably one of the biggest weaknesses of Hopkins is the food and variety of food. On campus food is fine (quality-wise), but there aren't enough venues. This results in lack of variety and long lines at lunch time. Additionally, many locations don't serve dinner, so the cafeterias become your only option. Additionally, off campus options are pretty limited, which doesn't help this issue.
Hopkins academics can certainly be challenging...and there is no grade inflation. However, many students work together and professors and teaching assistants have office hours where they are happy to help you with problems you may have. Most classes are reasonably sized (~20-30) with the exception of intro level math and science classes which can be as large as ~300 students.
The physics department is pretty unique in that the teacher to student (majoring students) is much higher than most other departments. In fact, the ratio is probably pretty close to 1 faculty member to each majoring undergraduate student. This means that there are many research opportunities without there being much competition from your peers. Additionally, because there aren't many students majoring in physics, the physics-track courses are small (~25).
While it may be true for some people, most students are not premeds and few are "cutthroat". Most students are happy to help their peers with coursework, even if graded on a curve.
A Capella is popular, newspapers and magazines are as well. There is a niche for almost anything that you would like. I'd recommend that anyone at any college try out a variety of groups to find the right one.
Studious, competitive, antisocial.
Being far from Texas-my home.
It has a lot of opportunities and are available to anyone who is willing to step up and take them.
It's well known and respected adn the focus is clearly on academics. There are alot of greaterprofessors and resources for learning.
Johns Hopkins breeds doctors.
That we're cutthroat, and spend all our time in the library.
People do spend a lot of time in the library, but they also spend a lot of time on their extracurriculars/having fun. People aren't cutthroat, but they do definitely work hard.
Nothing. I was pretty well informed from information sessions, hopkins literature, and the various advisors asigned to me by the school (both academic and students).
JHU is known for it's medical school. Here at the undergrad..it's not that great unless you are pre-med. However, IF you are pre-med, watch out for cut throat ppl cuz there's a LOT of them! (I've heard many cases of stolen text book/ notes in the library during finals period).
It's the best medical school in the country.
The type of person who wants to have opportunities as a nurse/nursing student at one of the most innovative institutions in the country. Someone who wants to work hard and be involved with the community.
Anyone who is unmotivated. It takes a strong determination and work ethic to succeed here. Goodluck!
Johns Hopkin University allows Freshmen students the 'luxury' of covered grades the first semester, however, this hurts the students more than it helps them. Students begin to think that it is ok to slack off, procrastinate, and not manage their time because 'grades really do not matter'. But it is frustrating to get back on track for the next semester when you have been given a great luxury that teached you nasty habits.
I decided to go to Johns Hopkins because of the generous financial package I received. I applied to a bunch of big named schools and got into almost all of them. Johns Hopkins happened to give me the most money and because my family could not afford to pay $54,000 a year out of pocket, there was no question.
When the weather is nice, everyone congregates on the grassy lawn known as The Beach.
