What impressed you positively?

"Students did seem happy. Great opportunities/flexibility to pursue additional degrees, travel and research." -Posted 11/08/2004 | 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." -Posted 11/08/2004 | Report Response

"All of the things I discussed above." -Posted 11/08/2004 | 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." -Posted 11/08/2004 | Report Response
