"Do you think you would like living in Baltimore? Being from the southwest, I had never been to Baltimore before. The school is in a bad part of town and I believe the interviewer wanted to know if I was ok with that. Naturally I'm ok with the neighborhood because it is Hopkins after all. But I fear I didn't adequately relay this. " -Posted 11/02/2003 | Report Response
