Great opportunity to do real research (for credit) at the medical school, NASA, or places in DC. Great physical sciences / engineering & bio/chem.
Bunch of nerds. Really stiff competition on the GPA side of things.
Johns Hopkins is an excellent academic University with a great reputation. Not only will it provide you with the skills to succeed in the business world, but it will also give you the connections...
The reason I chose not to attend Johns Hopkins University was the lack of diversity. I attended an almost all white upper class high school, and was looking to attend a school with a more diverse...
Hopkins has a challenging academic program that preps students for the real world by encouraging independence and intellectual banter. A degree from JHU has high market value. Also, the campus is...
Baltimore has a high crime rate and robberies are not out of the ordinary. Grade "deflation" is common and a lot of students are very quiet so make sure you take the initiative.
John Hopkins I would say should be anyone tops choice for college. Their medical program is amazing, and opens so many doors with this on your resume.
The downfall is that this school is super competitive. Thes best of the best of the best go here. Its education and education only.
Johns Hopkins is a very prestigious school. I would definitely hire students from here.
I would tell students to make sure you're at the top of your class before you think of applying to Johns Hopkins. I can't think of much they should improve on.
The atmosphere at John Hopkins is really good and the student events are good. Would definitely hire students from here
Depends on where you come from, but adjusting to being away from family and trying to make new friends
This is a complete package for students. It is a bargain for money.
Getting a position is a bit tough. The qualifications seem a bit overrated.
no core curriculum and freshman fall grades are pass/fail
some of the surrounding neighborhoods are questionable...but nothing too bad.
Its active social community. The events calendar is amazing. You can see which events are trending at any time, and it's plugged right into Facebook.
It's in Baltimore
the programme, the school staff, the academia are excellent they will go beyond to help students
sometimes there are no summer classes for undergraduates because not many students apply for
The environment on campus is amazing! While stereotypically pegged to be a very competitive school, Hopkins combines rigorous academia with a relaxed and inviting atmosphere that alleviates the...
The worst thing is that some of the student run activities are not well publicized on campus and are not very popular.
The best thing about Hopkins is how passionate the student population is about everything they do - from academics to extracurriculars and research. I also love how many opportunities are available...
One of my least favorites about Hopkins is how many misconceptions people have about the school before they visit. People believe that everyone here is cutthroat or that it is in a really bad...
The best thing about Hopkins is the freedom in your curriculum. There are no classes that you must take for core requirements, so I never have to take a history class again!
Personally, I am not a big fan of covered grades first semester. Though many kids loves them, I feel like I was punished by them since I tried hard, did well, and medical schools won't even see the...
The people. The professors are absolutely brilliant and incredibly approachable. The other students are fun, passionate, smart, and friendly. The support staff (security, food service workers) are...
I wish that people explored Baltimore more. I think that we are kind of clustered in the "Hopkins Bubble" a bit.
i attended the graduate school of advanced international studies of The Johns Hopkins University (SAIS). The best thing that happened to me in addition to the excellent first rate professors, was...
I attended when it had a sixth of the student body it has now. So, I cannot comment on how it is today.
The students at Hopkins are academically driven, well-rounded, and overall nice people.
Juniors and seniors are not guaranteed on-campus housing (but it's not terrible because there are apartments located on campus that are very easy to lease).
By far the students. Everyone is fantastically smart, friendly, diverse and welcoming.
The lack of traditional school spirit. The only sport that gets massive turnouts is lacrosse.
The best thing about Johns Hopkins is the people. You will meet (and make friends!) with people from all around the globe who are interesting, smart, and have something unique to bring to the table.
Johns Hopkins is challenging academically. If you are ready to push yourself and work hard, you will succeed here.
I really like the campus atmosphere - people all seem so nice, so smart, and so driven to succeed it's really comfortable for me.
I usually say that I like Hopkins despite its location. Baltimore has some nice areas, but on the whole I'm not a huge fan and it rains more than i'd like.
The best thing about Hopkins is that it allows you to be very flexible in terms of choosing a major and pursuing your own academic interests. Double majoring is readily available, and it is not...
Since the student body is so small, it doesn't allow for a wide variety in terms of near campus businesses. The small student body cannot support multiple Chinese restaurants, for example, so...
Hopkins does not accept AP credit for humanities courses such as AP US History or AP English Lit/Language. You are required to retake the courses in the humanities even if you have taken the AP...
The academics are amazing...I have learned so much in just one semester! Many classes are taught by TA's; however, the TA's are very knowledgeable and are always willing to give individual...
Hopkins does not accept AP Credit for courses in the humanities. You are required to retake those courses from the introductory level even if you have taken the AP exams.
The people I've met here. I've made amazing friends, and I've had amazing professors and classmates.
No student union
The student body is really diverse so you find yourself becoming friends with a lot of different people, and the strength of the programs, not just in the sciences, really comes through.
All of your needs are pretty much met within a few blocks of campus, so it takes an effort to make sure you get around and experience Baltimore
The campus is right out of a postcard. Absolutely beautiful. The student population is pretty diverse, in my opinion, and there's no shortage of campus groups and clubs to be a part of. While it is...
The fact that the library is underground makes studying there an extreme bummer, but at least there are other above-ground workspaces to make up for it.
I absolutely love the relationship I am able to build with my professors! I really feel like a lot of guidance is available to me, and my mentors have really helped me find my passion.
I think the student body can be competitive at times, especially in premed required courses.
I don't think I could narrow it down to a singularly best thing. I love that there's no core curriculum, which liberates students to pursue exactly what they'd like to pursue. I love that the...
That you only get to spend four years here.
The best thing about Hopkins is that there is no "typical Hopkins student" and anyone can find a place to call home on campus.
Let's put it this way, first and foremost, if you HAVE no time to study, JHU GRAD Program is not for you. Their curriculum is rigourous and activities such as sports, and social interraction...
It can't be all positive, some negatives: -The same professor would sometime teach up to 3 courses -JHU is not a place to coast, enjoy friends, drinking or make a big name in sports etc. -Some...
