What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

The two most important objectives when searching for a college should be terrific networking opportunities and a comfortable atmosphere. If a student is not excited and happy in her college environment, she will never have a strong enough drive to truly succeed in college. Additionally, volunteer experience and internships are very important for whatever comes after her time as an undergraduate. This makes networking incredibly important to a student's future. Choose a school that is well-known and is universally respected, so that all of the student's hard work is not in vain.

What's unique about your campus?

The connections are absolutely fantastic. When I mention that I go to Johns Hopkins, I get immediate respect from anyone involved in the healthcare community. As a result, I have been able to land terrific internships and opportunities in hospitals.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

The one thing I can say is branch out, try new things, and find a passion in life that drives you. Too many students at this school and others across the country are so focused on the end goal of a particular career that they forget to enjoy college. Yes, college is expensive, and students should strive to achieve a great GPA mixed with internship or research experience. Yet, college is expensive, and part of the cost is for broadening personal horizons. Invest in a social life, make interesting friends, join unique clubs, and take unfamiliar classes. Devote a good deal of time to beefing up your resume and pursuing your dream job, but save some time to learn about yourself. Attending a university is not only about learning new skills and facts to use in the career world, it is also about receiving an education. And an education is just as much about the experiences you have and maturity you achieve as the facts you learn in the classroom. So if you are pre-law, take that class on the brain. If you are pre-med, take painting. Work hard, yet have fun and leave college with no regrets.

What's the one thing you wish someone had told you about freshman year?

The school has many friendly people, but many, many people are also very cut-throat and competitive.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

Anyone who is unmotivated. It takes a strong determination and work ethic to succeed here. Goodluck!

Describe how your school looks to someone who's never seen it.

Hopkins is a place where serious students come to take the next step in their lives. There are people here who want to have fun, but everybody is working hard. The resources here are unparalleled, the library is great and the campus is beautiful.

Describe the students at your school.

People at this school are extremely focused and competitive, sometimes competitively so. There are nice people, but the overall attitude is one of intensity, and there is sort of a general unfriendliness and isolation that is experienced here.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

The college entrance process was terrifying for me because I felt powerless--I knew that in order to attend any school, I would need a large scholarship, which made me feel disadvantaged. My general advice, then, would be to encourage especially the students themselves to really take control of the process. I think it was really important for me to be the executive decision maker; I researched schools, organized the visits, planned my tests, and did all the applications myself. This isn't to say that you shouldn't accept help from your parents, but this is a really important decision about the rest of your life, and to be able to put the work makes you more knowledgable and thus more comfortable with what's happening. When it comes to making the actual decision, I would again speak to students instead of parents. I think that it's extremely important to strip your decision of all outside forces--what name looks the best on your resume, what your parents want---none of those things are going to matter much in the end. If you are empowered enough to make the right decision for yourself, it will be respected.

It is best known for bringing up pre-professional undergraduates and getting them ready for grad school, law school, and especially med school.

Describe your favorite campus traditions.

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).

Hopkins is small but baltimore is big. Ther'es a lot of places you can explore outside of campus. The medical school is world renown.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

If life was like a game, then college is like hitting the restart button. You get a chance to do everthing over again- make new friends, have a crazy new hair style, become a goth girl, etc. You can be a new you! and the best thing about it is, that you get to choose who you're going to be. People say that college was the funnest time of their lives, and i can see why. Definitely do everything you wanted to do in high school but you were too shy to do (like joining a math club.. idk). Make the most of your time there, and have fun with it! However, your likelihood of enjoying college life heavily depends on you finding the right school for you. Definitely take advantage of the campus tours, and shadowing programs. Having a personal experience at a school that you might attend for the next 4 years (or more; hopefully not!) is important. Talk to random students on campus; ask them if they like it there. Dont believe everything that the tour guide or admissions people tell you. Afterall, they're gettig paid by the school.!

What kind of person should attend this school?

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.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

Find an institution that actually cares that you are there. A place that will support, nuture, encourage and challenge your academic and personal growth and development.

Grace
What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

Students and parents should not over-stress during the application process. All that the student has done up until the application time is what the student is capable of; therefore, he/she will get into the school that is suited for him/her. Also, it is a smart move for the student to have an idea of what he/she wants to study. They say college is the time for discovery, and that you have plenty of time to pick a major, but I do not think so. Majors have many requirements, but the core curriculum for some colleges. In order to get ahead, the student should stick to one major/minor by fall of sophomore year in order to apply for the right internships or jobs necessary and build experience for the next step.

What do you consider the worst thing about your school? Why?

Competition. Hopkins students are very driven and will do what it takes to be at the top. It's great to be surrounded by intelligent workaholics, but a lot of the time you have to fend for yourself.
